  • Introductions

  • Policies and Procedures

  • Course Outline

  • CPR/AED Manual

  • Standard Precautions

Purpose l.jpg

  • To give professional rescuers the knowledge and skills necessary to provide care to a victim of a breathing emergency using breathing devices and emergency oxygen.

Standard precautions l.jpg
Standard Precautions

  • Precautions

    • Avoid contact with blood and body fluids.

    • Use personal protective equipment.

    • Avoid touching your nose, mouth or eyes while providing care.

    • Wash hands thoroughly after providing care.

Resuscitation Masks

  • What is a resuscitation mask?

  • Benefits of using a resuscitation mask:

    • The possibility of disease transmission is reduced.

    • A seal is created over both the victim’s mouth and nose.

    • Air can be delivered to the victim more quickly through both the mouth and nose.

    • The device can be connected to emergency oxygen if it has an oxygen inlet, thus increasing the oxygen concentration the victim receives.

  • Characteristics of a resuscitation mask

  • What is a BVM?

  • A BVM reduces the risk of disease transmission and increases the level of oxygen being delivered to a victim.

  • Rescuer 1 performs an initial assessment while Rescuer 2 assembles the BVM.

  • Rescuer 1 seals the mask and opens the airways.

  • Rescue 2 begins ventilations.

  • Look for movement and recheck for breathing and a pulse about every 2 minutes.

Emergency oxygen l.jpg
Emergency Oxygen

  • An injured or ill person can benefit greatly from receiving air with a higher oxygen concentration.

  • To deliver emergency oxygen, you will need:

    • An oxygen cylinder.

    • A regulator with pressure gauge and flowmeter.

    • A delivery device.

Delivery devices l.jpg
Delivery Devices emergency oxygen?

  • Nasal cannula: flow rate 1-6 LPM

  • Resuscitation mask: flow rate 6 -15 LPM

  • Non-rebreather mask: flow rate 10-15 LPM

  • BVM: flow rate 15 LPM or more

Fixed flow rate oxygen l.jpg
Fixed-Flow-Rate Oxygen emergency oxygen?

  • Some emergency oxygen systems deliver oxygen at a fixed-flow rate.

    • Delivery device, regulator and cylinder already connected.

    • Reduces or eliminates need to assemble the equipment.

    • Easier and quicker to deliver emergency oxygen.
