Multiple choice • When giving CPR the oxygen concentration that you exhale into the victim contains approximately 16% oxygen. • Increased heart rate is a sign of hypoxia which is an insufficient amount of oxygen reaching blood cells. • Rim of the mask should be between the lower lip and chin. • When using a bag valve mask make sure to look for the victim’s chest to clearly rise. • Seal the mask and then open the airway
Multiple choice: • BVM produces the highest oxygen concentration • Make sure oxygen is flowing through the device before placing it on a victim. • Flowmeters are used to set liters per minute. • Listen for a hissing sound coming out of a device to ensure oxygen is flowing through the device. • Make sure the victim is lying still when using a pulse oximeter. • 200 per square inch you must now change the oxygen tank to a new one.
