    Basic Life Support & First Aid Basic Life Support & First Aid Presentation Transcript

    • Purpose
      The purpose of this presentation is to introduce and refresh some Basic Life Support (aka First Aid) principles.
      This presentation was designed with health students in mind, as a refresher or in preparation for clinical placements. However, the topics covered here will be of use to anyone.
      Your actions on the day of an emergency may be the difference between someone waking up or going away in a body bag.
    • DR ABCD
    • Danger
      Check for Danger (Hazards/Risks/Safety?)
      to you
      to others
      to casualty
      Remove yourself and the casualty to an area of safety

    • Response
      Check the casualty for a response.
      Use the COWS Method
      C an you hear me?
      O pen your eyes
      W hat is your name?
      S queeze my hand
      Gently squeeze shoulders (i.e. the trapezoid muscle)
      If casualty is unresponsive call for help.
      Call 112to reach emergency services virtually anywhere in the world.
      Call 911for USA, 000for Australia
    • Airway
      Check the airway is open and clear of obstructions.
      Use a head tilt, chin lift to open the airway.
      Use a jaw thrust for patients with suspected spinal cord, head, neck and facial trauma.
      If breathing begins place in recovery position.
    • Breathing
      Look, listen and feel for breathing, up to 10 seconds.
      is chest rising and falling?
      can you hear or feel air from mouth or nose?
      After the airway has been opened, if the casualty is not breathing give,
      2 full breaths, approx1 second per inspiration (breath)
      In clinical situations use a face mask to administer the breaths.

    • CPR
      If no signs of life – unconscious, not breathing and not moving,
      start CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
      CPR involves giving;
      30 compression and 2 breaths
      100 compressions per minute
      (useful tunes for compression rate are Staying Alive by the Bee Gees, Another one Bites the Dust to name a few)
      The recommended point of compresions is the midline over the lower half of the sternum.
    • CPR Continued….
      You should check for vital signs every 2 minutes.
      Doing CPR on Infants
      use two fingers instead of using hands to deliver compressions.
      Give 30 compression & 2 breaths
      100 compressions per minute
      when delivering breaths do not overdo the amount, as you may cause a lung to rupture.
      CPR should continue until the return of spontaneous circulation or you are relieved by a qualified professional.
    • CPR Continued….
    • Apply a Defibrillator
      If Defibrillator is available, apply and follow voice prompts.
      Remember when shocking to get everyone to stand well back.
      The Lifepak 500 is the standard product in Australia
      Keep checking for signs of life.
    • Airway Management
      Note the next two slides are specific to allied health professionals and medical students. It is a reminder of some devices used for airway management.
      Nasopharyngeal Airway
      Endotracheal tube
      Oropharyngeal Airway (guedels)
      Laryngeal mask
    • Airway Management
      Once the Guedel or Nasopharyngeal airway is inplace,
      Apply face mask
      Use the resuscitator to provide ventilations
      Attach 15L of oxygen to resuscitator
      If performing ventilation manually ensure a tight sealbetween the mask and the face.
      Where possible have one person firmly holding the face mask down and the other ventilating.

    • Standard Precautions
      Standard Precautions are standard, safe work practices that are to be applied to all patients regardless of their known or presumed infectious status.
      Standard Precautions are particularly important in cases with:
      • Blood (including dried blood)
      • All other body fluids, secretions and excretions (excluding sweat), regardless of whether they contain visible blood
      • Non-intact skin
      • Mucous membranes
      Standard Precautions include steps such as:
      • hand washing
      • use of appropriate personal protective equipment (eg. gloves)
      • management of sharps, and
      • immunisation of health care workers.
