Flashcards in Chapter 9 - Airway Management Deck (23):
1

When do you use the head-tilt chin-lift maneuver?

When there is no risk of spinal injury.

2

When do you use the jaw-thrust maneuver?

When there is a suspected spinal injury.

3

How far do you insert the suction catheter?

Only as far as you can see and no farther than the distance between the corner of the mouth and the earlobe.

4

How long do you suction for an adult?

No longer than 10 to 15 seconds.

5

How long do you suction for a child?

No longer that 5-10 seconds.

6

What is an NPA?

A nasopharyngeal airway.

7

What are the 4 steps for inserting an NPA?

  1. Size the device from the earlobe to the nostril.
  2. Lubricate with a non-patroleum lubricant
  3. Insert with the bevel toward the septum, slowly slide it in while rotating ownward.
  4. Check by listening for breathing

8

What is an OPA?

An oropharyngeal Airway.

9

What are the steps to insert an OPA?

  1. Size the adjunct from the earlobe to the corner of the mouth.
  2. Insert starting with the tip pointing upward. Rotate downward while inserting.
  3. Check by listening for breating.

  4. Allign pins and hand tighten
  5. attach tubing
  6. open main valve
  7. adjust flow
  8. secure the tank

23

What are the step to breakdown an oxygen tank?

  1. Turn off flow
  2. Turn off main valve
  3. Remove tube
  4. Bleed regulator
  5. Disconnect regulator
