Nice, simple explanation of the major organ systems!

You and your partner are conducting CPR on a pulseless, apneic, adult patient. When you are delivering ventilations with a BVM, what is the BEST way to quickly assess that your ventilations are adequate?

A) Assess cap refill
B) Assess skin color and temperature
C) Assess the rise and fall of the chest during ventilations
D) Assess the SpO2 and CO2

Getting near test time, or getting ahead for next year?
Right now you can get 3 months for the price of 2!

Michael RichardThose that said D, that's wrong. Don't read into the scene situation. The question just stated the patient's stats, never said that the patient was hooked up to a monitor. Quickest way is always Chest Rise.

The Integumentary System!
The integumentary system consists primarily of the skin. The skin performs a variety of functions such as protection, water balance, temperature regulation, excretion, and shock absorption. The skin is only a few millimeters thick yet it is by far the largest organ in the body and consist of 3 major layers the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous layers.

There are 2 types of strokes: Bleed and Clot (hemorrhagic and ischemic)
A TIA is a temporary clot that gets broken up, so ischemia abates.

A 20 year old male pt has severe facial injuries, inadequate breathing, and copious secretions coming from the mouth. How should the patient be managed?

A) Alternate suctioning for 10 seconds and ventilations for 2 minutes while maintaining c-spine control.
B) Turn him on his side to allow for secrection drainage which should improve his ventilatory status
C) Suction the patient first for 20-30 seconds and then attempt ventilations while maintaining c-spine control
D) Open his airway with jaw-thrust and wait for ACLS unit for intubation.

Andrew NewlandsBut what if after 10secs there is still copious amounts of secretions ? Are you going to stop auctioning and ventilate it down ? Why is there a time limit on suctioning ... if the A doesn't get fixed then that where you stay

1 day ago   ·  3
Avatar

Debbie ArcherNot D. Not waiting for ALS to support breathing- it's BLS before ALS. Not C as per NYS protocols which allow for suctioning at a maximum of 15 seconds on an adult. B, although tempting, says nothing about his c-spine, so I'm going with A suction, ventilate and maintain c-spine

21 hours ago   ·  1
Avatar

Tawnie CampbellI would go with B since it says "copious secretions", 10 seconds may not be enough suction time and you don't want to push all that into the airway ventilating.

22 hours ago   ·  1
Avatar

Stephen HorwathA, because with the facial injuries being severe he could have spinal injuries as well so you would want to maintain c-spine and suction for no more than 10 seconds on the way out of the pts mouth and then ventilate the pt for 2 mins then reassess.

Avatar

Kevin WanstallI would go B. Allow secretion to drain and monitor respiratory status be mindful of C spine risk. Breathing takes precedence over spine. Suction is helpful but can compromise respiration. BVM in the presence of secretions could cause the secretions to be forced into the airways.

You have decided to insert a combitube in an apneic patient, after the balloons are inflated, which lumen will you choose to ventilate, first?

A) Tracheal Lumen
B) Esophageal Lumen
C) It doesn't matter
D) Both lumens to ensure proper ventilation

You are on scene at a residence of an elderly female who has suffered a CVA. You find her supine in her bed. She has vomited, is semiconscious, and has slow, irregular respirations. What should you do FIRST?

A) Begin BVM ventilations @ 12 - 20 bpm
B) Clean the vomitus from her face and mouth
C) Manually open her airway and suction her oropharynx
D) Turn her on her side to allow for possible vomiting

Alex FarlowYou are going to want to suction her oral airway and possibly insert a basic airway adjunct however, a simple and quick way to partially clear the airway is to turn the patient to the left side.... allowing vomitus to drain while you retrieve and set up suction. Most basic maneuvers first!

3 days ago   ·  6
Avatar

Dana LeederC. Semi conscious= not able to protect own airway. Vomit= did not protect own airway. Slow irregular resps? Needs C, her airway manually opened, suctioning to clear and then an adjunct and ventilatory support. D would be ok only if she was breathing sufficient on her own, but she isn't. A is wrong because the new standard is one breath every 6 seconds. B would be later and only if the face needs to be cleaned to make a good mask seal with a BVM.

3 days ago
Avatar

Michael RuizThe question says she is breathing. It does not say when or where she vomited. She could have vomited in a bucket next to the bed. You do not need to manually open her away because it is open and patent. I would go with B. That's the first thing you would do because you don't want a future airway compromise. Hopefully I'm not wrong.

3 days ago   ·  1
Avatar

Scott HighfillA. As vague as the question is, she has an airway and is breathing so I'm assuming it's not obstructed. Fact that she vomited is a distractor. Facts are she's semiconscious with slow irregular respirations, she needs O2 and assisted ventilations.
