Recommended airway management for drowning victims includes mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, bag-valve-mask ventilation, endotracheal ventilation or an emergency airway adjunct such as a laryngeal mask, King Tube[R], Combitube[TM] or cricothyroidotomy (3).
Lifeguards commenced resuscitation on the beach including cardiac massage and bag-valve-mask ventilation.
Tony and Dave administered CPR while Paul used a bag-valve-mask
apparatus to ventilate the woman.
However, since MICR passive ventilation proved a dramatic change for EMS personnel, bag-valve-mask
ventilation was still permitted during this study.
However, before intubation, the patient was ventilated with a bag-valve-mask that may have contributed to aerosolization of SARS-CoV.
A bacterial/viral filter was placed on the bag-valve-mask after the intubation.
This advanced course is designed for the health-care provider and will cover two-person and bag-valve-mask
operation, Standerfer said.
Intratracheal jet ventilation is an effective method for ventilating anaesthetised, apnoeic patients when artificial airways or bag-valve-mask
ventilation interfere with the surgical procedure, e.
Usually in the emergency setting a self-inflating bag-valve-mask
device is used.
Attempted bag ventilation after intubation resulted in a massive air leak, necessitating swapping to a bag-valve-mask
protective mouthpiece or bag-valve-mask
Emergency cricothyrotomy was necessary after both endotracheal intubation and bag-valve-mask
ventilation were not possible.
