Transcript of bls 2011 paolo

Re-evaluate the skills on Resuscitation Techniques.
Update the proper rendition of Rescue Breathing for adult, child and infant
Update the proper sequence of Cardiopulmonary Cerebral Resuscitation for adult, child and infant (1-man and 2-man rescue).
Administer to adult, child and infant CPCR and RB cycles for 2 minutes. Immediate recognition of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) based on assessing unresponsiveness and absence of normal breathing (ie, the victim is not breathing or only gasping).
“Look, Listen, and Feel” (LLF) removed from the BLS algorithm
Sequence change to chest compressions before rescue breaths (CAB rather than ABC)
Trained Lay Rescuers continue effective chest compressions/CPCR until return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) or termination of resuscitative efforts
Increased focus on methods to ensure that high-quality CPCR (compressions of adequate rate and depth, allowing full chest recoil between compressions, minimizing interruptions in chest compressions and avoiding excessive ventilation) is performed
Continued de-emphasis on pulse check for health care providers Includes early recognition of the emergency and activation of the emergency medical services (EMS) or emergency response system. The most effective when started immediately after the victim collapsed.
This procedure involves a combination of rescue breathing and chest compression. It should be done until defibrillation and Advance Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) can restore normal heart and lung function. Placement of automated external defibrillators (AED) in the hands of large numbers of people trained in their use may be the key intervention for increasing the chances of survival for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients. Early ACLS provided by paramedics at the scene is the final critical link in the management of cardiac arrest. Transport the in-hospital post– cardiac arrest patient to an appropriate critical-care unit capable of providing comprehensive post– cardiac arrest care. Lay Rescuer Healthcare Provider Tap the shoulder of the victim and shout:
“hey, hey are you alright?” (2x)
“hey, can you hear me?” (2x)Tap UNCONSCIOUSSNESS or UNRESPONSIVENESS is one of the major signs of CARDIAC ARREST ( Critical Victim)
CRITICAL VICTIM needs immediate and continues interventions.
