Proceed through the presentation using the arrow keys

activating the cardiac arrest call
Activating the Cardiac Arrest Call
  • Dial 2222
  • State adult OR paediatric OR maternal (for pregnant women) cardiac arrest
  • State exact location; ward, level, building and site

Please note that 2222 is the number for any emergency

e.g. fire, assault, fast bleeping etc

adult cardiac arrest team hhgh wgh
Adult Cardiac Arrest TeamHHGH & WGH
  • On call Medical Registrar, SHO & PRHO
  • On call Anaesthetic Registrar/SHO
  • Operating Department Practitioner/ Anaesthetic Nurse if available
  • Senior Nurse
  • Porter

If more staff attend than is necessary, the team leader should request that

excess staff leave.

emergency bleep testing hhgh sach wgh
Emergency Bleep TestingHHGH, SACH & WGH
  • Any bleep that is programmed to receive emergency calls will be tested daily before midday
  • If your bleep is programmed to receive emergency calls (of any type) and this test is not received by midday, switchboard should be contacted immediately

Emergency Bleep TestingMVH
  • Any bleep that is programmed to receive emergency calls will be tested daily before midday
  • On receiving the test bleep, switchboard should be contacted to confirm receipt of the test
  • If confirmation is not received switchboard will contact bleep holders individually
summary of adult basic life support
Summary of Adult Basic Life Support
  • Safety – Check surrounding area for hazards. Do not put yourself at risk.

AND

  • Shout – Shout for help and activate emergency buzzer if available
  • Stimulate – Talk to patient and gently shake to elicit response
summary of adult basic life support11
Summary of Adult Basic Life Support
  • Airway – Check mouth and clear with suction if necessary. Leave well fitting dentures in situ. Open airway using head tilt and chin lift or jaw thrust if C-spine injury suspected
  • Breathing and Circulation – Assess for breathing, carotid pulse and other signs of life for up to 10 seconds. Agonal gasps are not a sign of life.
summary of adult basic life support12
Summary of Adult Basic Life Support
  • If no definite signs of life activate cardiac arrest call and begin CPR
  • Start with 30 chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute and a depth of 4-5cm. Hands should be placed in the centre of the chest.
  • Following chest compressions administer 2 breaths if a pocket mask or bag-valve-mask is available (mouth to mouth is not acceptable practice within WHHT). Do not attempt more than 2 breaths each time before returning to chest compressions.
  • If no pocket mask or bag valve mask is immediately available begin continuous compressions until equipment arrives.
summary of adult basic life support13
Summary of Adult Basic Life Support
  • Continue with CPR at ratio of 30:2 until advanced life support is commenced or the patient exhibits signs of life.
  • If the patient is intubated continuous compressions at a rate of 100 per minute and continuous breaths at a rate of 10 per minute should be administered
  • Ideally a rescuer should do no more than 2 minutes of chest compressions (to avoid fatigue)
modifications to basic life support
Modifications to basic life support
  • If the patient is noticeably pregnant they should be tilted 15-300 to their left by means of a Cardiff wedge or pillow. Alternatively the uterus can be displaced manually. This is to reduce the effects of aorto-caval compression. Both basic and advanced life support should be continued following the standard adult European Resuscitation Council guidelines.
respiratory arrest
Respiratory Arrest

After full S, S, S, A, B, C assessment, if a

patient is found to be unresponsive,

apnoeic, but has a DEFINITE pulse

  • The cardiac arrest call should be activated
  • Ventilations should be commenced at a rate of 10 per minute (inspiration 1 second, expiration 5 seconds).
  • Breathing and circulation should be reassessed every 10 breaths/minute
choking summary
Choking Summary
  • Confirm that the patient is choking (as opposed to anaphylaxis, myocardial infarction, seizure etc)
  • If patient is coughing effectively encourage them to continue coughing but do nothing else
choking summary21
Choking Summary
  • If the patient is not coughing effectively and is conscious give up to 5 back blows
  • If these are not successful give up to 5 abdominal thrusts
  • Continue to alternate 5 back blows and 5 abdominal thrusts until airway is cleared or the patient becomes unconscious
  • The cardiac arrest team should be called if initial back blows are unsuccessful
choking summary22
Choking Summary
  • If the patient becomes unconscious begin CPR 30:2 (even if signs of life/pulse are present)
  • This should be continued until the obstruction is relieved – at which point the patient should be reassessed and appropriate treatment administered
