Life Functions

QuestionAnswer
Life Functions: Getting OXYGEN from the air to all of the cells in the body.
4 Critical Life Functions * Ventilation * Oxygenation * Circulation * Perfusion
Ventilation moving air in and out of the lungs.
Oxygenation getting oxygen into the blood.
Circulation moving blood through the body.
Perfusion getting blood and oxygen into the tissue.
How to measure the critical life functions? Vital Signs: (Ventilation) * Respiratory Rate (RR) * Tidal Volume (VT) * Chest movement * Breath Sounds *Paco2
How to measure the critical life functions? Vital Signs: (Oxygenation) * Heart Rate * Color * Sensorium * PaO2
How to measure the critical life functions? Vital Signs: (Circulation) * Pulse * Heart Rate and Strength * Cardiac Output
How to measure the critical life functions? Vital Signs: (Perfusion) * Blood Pressure (B/P) * Sensorium *Temperature *Urine Output * Hemodynamics
Assessment and treatment should be based upon? Life functions
Measurement of Life Functions Statements A (A) Almost every part of assessment relates to one of these four life functions
Measurement of Life Functions Statements B (B) If any of these life functions are showing problem, they must be treated/ corrected right away
Measurement of Life Functions Statements C (C) If any of these life functions are absent (no breathing, no pulse and no blood pressure) then you have an emergency( (Code) patient.
Measurement of Life Functions Statements Emergency 1st Priority: When you have an emergency: 1st Priority: Ventilation establish an open airway and breathe
Measurement of Life Functions Statements Emergency 2nd Priority: When you have an emergency: 2nd Priority: Oxygenation increase Fio2
Measurement of Life Functions Statements Emergency 3rd Priority: When you have an emergency: 3rd Priority: Circulation * chest compression * defibrillate * heart drugs
Measurement of Life Functions Statements Emergency 4th Priority: When you have an emergency: 4th Priority: perfusion increase blood pressure
the most common emergency: Oxygenation
