Owing to major lifestyle changes and a sedentary way of life, the number of cases of choking or cardiac arrest has seen a surge in the last few years. Here’s how you can help someone in need of the hour and be there life savior:
The patient’s heart is likely to stop pumping oxygen and blood to the tissues, brain, and organs during cardiac arrest. If immediate appropriate remedial action is taken, then chances of patient’s survival increases.
Provide first aid treatment to patient-facing cardiac arrest
The patient is likely to lie motionless and stop breathing, may not respond to physical stimulation or questions. If there is no answer received, then the patient’s body should be turned with his face upwards. Use ‘look, feel and listen’ approach to determine stopping of breathing!
- Check out if chest is rising/falling
- Listen breathing sounds
- Feel air movement through the patient’s mouth
- Opening airway: In case, breathing is not noticed, then look within his throat or mouth for objects which might block the airway. Remove it, if identified. Tongue could also be blocking airway. Have head tilted back slightly, lift chin, to allow tongue, opening the airway.
- Perform chest compression: To achieve cardiac pulmonary resuscitation, it is necessary to kneel besides the patient and lean over with arms straight. Then place on top both hands above lower portion of breastbone. Compress chest of patient about five centimeters.
- Perform chest compression: Place thumbs side by side on breastbone of the infant. Since chest is tiny, encircling of hand is prohibited. For newborn patients, thumb to be overlapped when performing chest compression.
- Perform chest compression: For patients of age 8 and below, place one hand’s heel above breastbone’s lowest portion. Press chest straight down, compress for around 2”.
Provide first aid treatment to patient suffering from choking
Large food pieces may cause adults to choke, while small rounded foods like hard candies and peanuts can cause toddlers and infants to choke, since they do not have well developed swallowing reflexes. Coughing is the first symptom of choking. It is followed by speaking and breathing issues. The patient could experience facial flushing and gasp. If not relieved, then seizure or fainting may occur.
Prompt first aid is noticed to be enough for controlling choking.
- Abdominal thrusts: In case, the adult is choking, then it will be useful to encircle the abdomen with arms, standing beside the patient. One hand is to be clasped with the other. Place hands halfway between navel and breastbone and thrust upwards and inwards the hands. The choking object will be expelled with strong cough.
- Clearing blocked airway: Infant is to be held facedown with the chest resting on forearm. Now, strike his back between shoulder blades and turn face up with head much lower than body. Now have two fingers placed on breastbone and thrust upwards and inwards. Extreme pressure is not to be applied to avoid causing injuries to the sensitive organs.
