Respitory Emergency

Emergency Response 2

What is Respitory Distress? -When someone is struggling to get air.
What are the signs that someone is choking? - Coughing, Pointing, or holding their neck. This is the universal sign of choking.
What do you do? -Tell them to keep coughing. -Have someone call 9-1-1. -Stay with them.
Why would you tell them to keep couging? -Because, they may be able to cough up the object on their own. When they are coughing, it means they are still getting air at that point.
Why call 9-1-1? -Because, even if they are coughing and getting air they may stop getting air at some point.They may have also dammaged their airway getting what they were choking on up.
If they stop coughing, what is it now called? -A Respitory Arrest. You will need to begin the life saving techniques used when someone's airway is completely blocked.
After gaining expressed consent, what do you do to hold them up? -Position yourself to the side of them, with one foot up to theirs and your back leg behind them. This will help you catch them if they loose consciousness.
After making sure they won't fall, what do you do? -Place your arm across the front of their chest reaching for the oppisite shoulder. Bend them over until their head is parallel with the floor or lower. Place the heel of one hand between their shoulder blades, give 5 black blows; then stand behind them.
After doing the 5 back blows technique, what comes next? -Find their navel and place two fingers above it, place your fist where your fingers are with your thumb against their stomach. Rach around with your other hand and hold your fist with your other hand. Give 5 quick upper thrust into the diaphragm.
What is the diaphragm? -A muscle that is located below the lungs and above the stomach. When giving abdominal thrust, you are pushing up on the diaphragm and pushing air into the lungs.
How long do you contunie to 5 and 5 technique? You contunie the 5 and 5 tecnnique until the object is forced out, or the person becomes un-conscious.
If they loose consciousness, what do you do? -Quickly lock your arms under their shoulders and pull them towards your body. Slowly lay them down on the ground, being careful to protect their head.
