Place one hand on the infant's forehead and the other on the chi, tilt the head back to a neutral position and deliver
to breath.

If the scene is safe , approach the victim and assess their responsiveness, send another person to activate the emergency response system and get an AED as fast as possible. Assess breathing and check the infant's pulse if the infant is not breathing or only gasping and you can'tfind a pulse begin CPR starting with compressions perform 30 compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute at a depth of at least one third of the chest for infants this is about one and a half inches when the AEG is brought 15 begin by turning the device on remove any
clothing from the victim and apply the AED pads one on the front events and chest in 1 on their back plug in the connector and clear the victim while the AED analyzes the rhythm if no shock is advised resume CPR beginning with chest compressions if a shock is advise clear the victim again before delivering the shock once the AED has charged hit the shock button after delivering the shock resume CPR beginning with 30 chest compressions open the airway and deliver 2 breaths each lasting one second watch for chest rise begin again with 30
chest compressions and continue at this ratio of 30 compressions to 2 breaths until the AED prompt you to stop or further help arrive

If the scene is safe approach the victim and assess their responsiveness send the other person to activate the emergency response system and get an AED assess breathing and check the brachial pulse if the victim is not breathing or only gasping and has no pulse begin CPR starting with compressions perform 30 compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute at a depth of at least one third the chest for infants this is about one and a half inches open the airway and deliver two breaths each lasting one second and watch for chest rise resume compressions when the AED is brought to scene the second rescuer should begin by turning the device on remove any clothing from the victim and apply the AED pads one on the front of infants chest and one on their back while the other rescuer continues performing CPR plug in the connector and clear the victim while the AED analyzes the rhythm if a shock is advised clear the victim again before delivering the shock once the AED has charged hit the shock button after delivering the shock resume CPR beginning with 15 chest compressions using the encircling hand technique after the compressions the second rescuer opens the airway and delivers two breaths continue CPR at this ratio of 15 compressions to 2 breaths until the AED prompts you to stop or further help arrive the rescuer should switch roles every two minutes or after about five cycles of CPR

Airway management is a fundamental life-saving skill your management of the airway depends upon your abilities training and scope of practice the best method of airway management will vary depending on patient condition equipment available and skill level of the provider the first two steps in any airway management response involve opening and clearing the airway first open the airway using a head tilt chin lift by placing one hand on the forehead and the other on the chin push with the palm to move the head back while lifting the jaw to bring the chin forward second clear the airway suctioning baby necessary to remove foreign material or secretions
now that the airway is open and clear consider a couple airway adjuncts to maintain patency there are two main types including the oral pharyngeal airway for unconscious patient in a nasal pharyngeal airway for conscious patient selection of the proper size oral pharyngeal airway is done by assessing the playing at the list of the patient in the tip of the airway should be at the angle of the jaw insertion is achieved by pointing the tip toward the hard palate and then rotating 180 degrees until the tip touches the posterior pharyngeal wall selection of the proper sized nasal pharyngeal digital airway is done by assessing the playing at the nostril and the tip should just reach the tragus of the ear to insert place the tip perpendicular with the maxillary bone using gentle pressure in a spiral motion until the device is in place beyond the nasal pharynx providing a patent airway after placement listen to the chest ensure that the patient is receiving adequate
rest sound now that we have our airway adjunct in place we now move to bag mask ventilation to properly use the bag mask use the EC formation with your hands to do so we're Musti with the index fingers and a thumb on one hand on the top side of the mask on the bridge of the nose this securely applies the mask to the face now the three remaining fingers form an E and use these fingers to lift the jawforming the airway now maintaining this position the provider squeezes the bag taking one second to provide one ventilation if a second provider is available to assist with bag-mask ventilation one provider will deliver ventilation to the bag mask while the other provider provides the same ICI formation with both hands to the mask so you have completed the airway management skills training please feel free to review as often as you would like and we encourage you to practice your skills with a skilled healthcare provider so
please go out there and save life
