Example text

6. Mouth-to-mouth-and-nose in an infant If the rescuer is unable to cover the mouth and nose in an infant he or she may attempt to seal only the infant’s nose with his or her mouth. As children vary in size only general guidance can be given regarding the volume and pressure of inflation (see the box). General guidance for exhaled air resuscitation The chest should be seen to rise Inflation pressure may be higher because the airway is small Slow breaths at the lowest pressure reduce gastric distension Firm, gentle pressure on the cricoid cartilage may reduce gastric insufflation If the chest does not rise then the airway is not clear.

An attempt to open the airway should be made using the head tilt/chin lift manoeuvre. The rescuer places the hand nearest to the child’s head on the forehead, and applies pressure to tilt the head back gently. The desirable degrees of tilt are: neutral in the infant and sniffing in the child. 4. 3. 4. Chin lift in children 23 BASIC LIFE SUPPORT The fingers of the other hand should then be placed under the chin and the chin should be lifted upwards. Care should be taken not to injure the soft tissue by gripping too hard.

Although the pre-term infant is vulnerable to retrolental fibroplasia caused by highconcentration oxygen, high concentrations should never be withheld for immediate resuscitation. Face masks (for artificial ventilation) Face masks for mouth-to-mask or bag-valve-mask ventilation in infants are of two main designs. Some masks conform to the anatomy of the child’s face and have a low deadspace. Circular soft plastic masks give an excellent seal and are preferred by many. Children’s masks should be clear to allow the child’s colour or the presence of vomit to be seen.
