Flashcards in CPR Deck (20):
1

What is the compression rate for adults, children, and infants?

100/min

2

Depth of compressions for adults and children(push in hard and fast, allow chest to recoil fully)

2inch

3

Depth of compression for infants

At least one-third anteroposterior diameter of chest or in (4 cm)

4

Compression-to-ventilation ratio for adults

One or two rescuers 30:2

5

Compression-to-ventilation ratio for children and infants?

One rescuer 30:2; two rescuers 15:2

6

what position should the patient be in

Supine position

7

Compressions should not cease longer than how many seconds?

Compressions should not cease for more than 5 seconds (30 seconds if the victim is being intubated).

8

One of two procedures can be used in CPR regarding head position.

The head-tilt/chin-lift method
Jaw Thrust

9

When a patient is in need of CPR but does not have a spinal injury, how should you position their head and neck.

The head-tilt/chin-lift method

10

used mainly by trained clinicians when spinal neck injuries are suspected

Jaw Thrust

11

What happens if you give the patient too much VT during CPR

Gastric inflation

12

What is the VT the adult patient should receive during chest compressions.

500 ml

13

What is the FIO2 for exhaled air

16%

14

What is a good indicator of adequate VT

Watching Chest Rise

15

A good seal over the patient's mouth is essential. If a good seal cannot be obtained, what should you try?

mouth-to-nose ventilation.

16

complications that occur with CPR

worsening of existing neck or spine injuries, gastric inflation and vomiting, trauma to internal structures during chest compressions, and problems associated with the removal of foreign objects to clear an obstructed airway.

17

With a completely obstructed airway, the patient commonly clutches at his or her throat. This is known as

universal distress signal for foreign body obstruction.

18

For adults and children, the procedure for health care providers for clearing a foreign body is the

Abdominal Thrust

19

may be used in place of abdominal thrusts on women in advanced stages of pregnancy and on markedly obese individuals

Chest Thrust

20

How much more medication do you give a patient with intratracheal instillation, rather than giving it through an IV

2 to 2.5 times the usual IV dose, diluted in 10 ml solution.
