We select a mask that fits over the nose and mouth without fitting over the eyes
If you will have to mask bag for more than a few minutes what hazards need to be avoided?
Gastric insufflations: get an 8 French feeding tube tube into the baby
Without interrupting mask bagging, measure from bridge of nose to ear lobe and then to midway between the xyphoid process and the naval.
When the baby’s HR is less than 60 BPM after 30 seconds of effective ventilations, we start compressions at 90 BPM
What is the function of the pressure gauge on the self-inflating manual resuscitator?
pressure gauge helps you determine the PIP being used to inflate the lung
What is the Fi02 of the self-inflating manual resuscitator without the reservoir?
Draw a line between the nipples and place hands just below this line on lower 1/3rd of sternum
While doing compressions on the newborn do you spend more time going down or coming up?
The duration of the downward stroke needs to be slightly shorter than the upward strokeanswer
What is the route and the dose of epinephrine in the newborn without a pulse
What do you do if your patient has been intubated sucessfuly, you’ve bagged effectively, and given epinephrine, but your babies HR is still less than 60 BPM
You have been bagging sucessully, now you see that the chest is no longer rising & you have breath sounds only on one side.
