welcome
Welcome!
  • Introductions
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Course Outline
  • CPR/AED Manual
  • Standard Precautions
purpose
Purpose
  • 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
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
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

Bag-Valve-Mask Resuscitator
  • 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
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
Delivery Devices
  • 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
Fixed-Flow-Rate 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.
