  95. Characteristics of COPD?
    • co-occurrence of chronic bronchitis and emphysema, in which the airways become narrowed.

    • In clinical practice, COPD is defined by its characteristically low airflow on lung function tests.
  96. Characteristics of Emphysema?
    • caused by destruction of structures feeding the alveoli
    • the small airways in the lungs to collapse during forced exhalation. As a result, airflow is impeded and air becomes trapped
    • Symptoms include shortness of breath on exertion, and an expanded chest.
    • Because breathing is difficult, the patient must use accessory muscles to help them breathe; tachypnea may occur when they try to extend their exertion.
    • They may have trouble coughing and lowered amounts of sputum.
  97. Spontaneous pneumothorax?
    • An accumulation of air in the pleural space
    • aka a collapsed lung
    • This buildup of air puts pressure on the lung, so it cannot expand as much as it normally does when you take a breath.

  102. CPR/AED Sequence (unwitnessed arrest)?
    • 1. Open the airway with either head tilt/chin lift or modified jaw thrust, if the airway is clear, check for a gag reflex and maintain the airway with an OPA
    • 2. Check for breathing by look, listening and feeling for the rate, rhythm and depth for no more than 10 seconds
    • 3. lf no breathing, give 2 breaths with a BVM @ 15 L/m
    • 4. Check pulse
    • 5. If there IS a pulse, continue rescue breathing at 1:5 (12/min) for an adult, or 1:3 (20/min) for a child/infant or a patient with suspected ICP
    • 6. If there IS NO pulse start compressions 30:2
    • 7. Apply the AED while compressions are going on
    • 8. After 2 minutes of CPR (5 cycles) analyze using the AED
    • 9. If shock advised, deliver 1 shock and then start directly into 2 minutes of CPR starting with chest compressions. No pulse check at this time
    • 10. If no shock advised, check pulse,
    • a) If there is no pulse continue with compression for 2 minutes then analyze again (start back at line 6)
    • b) If there is a pulse, continue with rescue breathing (start back at line 5)
    • Things to remember:
    • If in a moving ambulance, stop the ambulance and turn the engine off before analyzing
    • If hypothermic (body temp below 35deg) only 1 shock is to be delivered on scene, no more than 3 shocks delivered, or 3 no shock advised
