Are Osteopathic Treatments The Answer To Chronic Sinus Infections?

This is a short article looking at assisting with intubation. Ensure you have a good knowledge of what all devices are called so to avoid confusion if the anaesthetist or paramedic asks for a certain device. Lay out all devices required in a sterile environment so they are ready at hand when needed. Ensure you have a range of sizes for the different tools available, e.g. size 7, 8, 9 ET tubes, size 3, 4 laryngoscope blade. Place the items to the side of the operator if you are required to do chest compressions, or be at hand ready to pass over items when required. Ensure there is a Bougie or Introducer at hand in case of a difficult intubation. If these items are used be prepared to assist in feeding the ET over them so that they can be placed in the airway.

Consider whether the patient will be a difficult intubation, do they have excessive features like a large tongue or neck. Is there evidence of airway obstruction where suction or forceps may be required to remove the debris. If there is no obstruction and the health care professional is finding it difficult to intubate, consider assisting in positioning of the

patient and conducting airway/intubation manoeuvres (if you are not actively conducting CPR).

Consider whether there is an object such as a pillow in the vicinity where you could place it under the patients' neck to provide some better sight alignment of the airway (ensure the patient has no c-spine compromise before doing this). If able to do so, consider a jaw thrust manoeuvre or lifting of the chin to aid in opening up the airway and providing better sight. Consider the BURP (Backwards Upwards Right Pressure) manoeuvre, place some fingers on the trachea and apply some pressure in the 'BURP' order. The health care professional may direct you where to apply further pressure with what they can visualise.

You can use the Sellick manoeuvre where there is risk of the patient vomiting whilst being intubated. Locate the cricoid cartilage and apply pressure towards the oesophagus. The idea is to collapse the oesophagus so no vomit can pass through the passageway. Use judgement when applying pressure and be cautious if querying a c-spine injury.

Once the intubation process is complete have a 20ml syringe filled with air ready for the health care professional to inflate the cuff. You may need to assist in holding the stethoscope head when auscultating the patient for tube placement confirmation. Once the tube is confirmed and tied in place, attach a catheter mount and CO2 device. Confirm the presence of CO2 and begin ventilating the patient. If in a cardiac arrest scenario, you can now provide continuous ventilations. Move any of the unused equipment a safe distance away where it doesn't get in your way but is close enough to grab again if needed.

Although choking isn't a common phenomenon, it is an emergency situation where some simple first aid techniques could make all of the difference and save that person's life. Choking is a time critical event, and by acting quick you can make all of the difference, if an individual cannot remove the foreign object occluding their airway, then suffocation and cardiac arrest will soon ensue.

What is the first thing when you realise that someone is choking, don't panic. Keep calm and you will be best able to assist them. If you are not sure is someone is choking, simply ask them and they will give you an appropriate response. When you've established that the individual is choking, call 999 and ask for an ambulance, this means specialist help will be on its way. Try and encourage the patient to cough, coughing is the least invasive of the foreign away occlusion removal techniques. Individuals are sometimes able to dislodge the foreign body by coughing it out, but after a few attempts, or if they are completely ineffective/cannot cough, you will need to move onto the next technique.

Encourage the patient to lean forward, you now will need to give 5 back blows in the centre of the back, between the shoulder blades. Use a flat palm and put some force into the blow. With the patient leaning forward and the 5 back blows this can often cause enough force to dislodge the object. If these fail then you must move to abdominal thrusts. Stand behind the patient and interlock your arms at the top of their abdomen, just under where the diaphragm is. With sharp thrusts inwards and upwards 5 times, this can often cause enough pressure to shift the occlusion.

If neither of these techniques work then begin to alternate the two in a cycle, 5 back blows, 5 abdominal thrusts, 5 back blows, 5 abdominal thrusts... Continue this cycle until the object is removed or the ambulance arrives to take over care. If the patient becomes unconscious from choking and ends on the floor, start doing chest compression's/cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The action of CPR can often allow for the object to be dislodged. Unless you can clearly see the object and easily grasp it, never place your hands in the persons' mouth. By doing so you may be pushing the object further into their trachea, or you may cause them to be sick and that will further occlude the airway.
