Welcome to the lesson on one rescuer, BLS and infants. In this video, we'll discuss step by step procedure for providing BLS in infants with one rescuer. If you're alone with an infant, tap their shoulders and talk loudly to them to determine if they're responsive. then assess their breathing. If the infant does not respond and is not breathing, or is only gasping for air, then yell for help. If someone responds, send them to call 911 and get an ad.
If you're not in a healthcare facility, or activate emergency response system and get a defibrillator. If you are in a healthcare facility, feel for the infant's brachial pulse for no more than 10 seconds. If you cannot feel a pulse, or if you're unsure that you feel a pulse, begin CPR by doing 30 compressions followed by two breaths. If you can feel the pulse but the pulse rate is less than 60 beats per minute, begin CPR. This rate is too slow for a child. If you cannot feel a pulse, or if you're unsure that you feel a pulse begins CPR by doing 30 compressions followed by two breaths.
If you can feel apart But the pulse rate is less than 60 beats per minute, begin CPR, this rate is too slow for a child. To perform CPR on an infant, make sure the infant is face up on a hard surface. Using two fingers, perform chest compressions in the center of the infant's chest. Be sure not to press on the end of the sternum as this can cause injury to the infant. impression depth should be 1.5 inches, that is four centimeters and the compression rate should be at least 100 to 120 per minute. After doing CPR for about two minutes, which is usually five cycles of 30, compressions and two breaths, if help has not arrived, activate emergency response system while staying with the infant.
The ha emphasizes to use speaker equipped cell phones that are available everywhere now. Get an ad for Dipper later if you know where one is. Use the ad or the defibrillator while continuing CPR until more help arrives or until infant's condition normalizes This concludes our lesson on one rescue or BLS. infant's next we'll review to rescue BLS and infants
