Follow the AED prompts.

What should you do if the victim is submerged in water and you need to use an AED?

Pull the victim out of the water and wipe their chest.

When using a bag-mask device, how can rescuers ensure that they are providing effective breaths?

Observing the chest rise with breaths.

in 1 rescuer infant CPR what is the ratio of compressions to breaths?

30:2 (30 compressions and 2 breaths)

What is something to consider when using an AED?

pads may not stick on a hairy chest and may fail to deliver a shock.

A child has collapsed. 1 rescuer has confirmed the scene is safe, has called for help, and has begun high quality CPR. 2 additional rescuers arrive to assist. What actions are next, to support a team-based resuscitation attempt?

2 rescuers alternate giving high quality chest compressions.

2 rescuers begin high quality CPR, the 3rd leaves to get the AED. What action supports 2-rescuer CPR?

Alternating the compressor role every 2 minutes.

"Members of a team know their boundaries and ask for help before the resuscitation attempt worsens". What element of team dynamics does this reflect?

Knowing you limitations.

A victim has a foreign-body airway obstruction and becomes unresponsive. What is your first action?

"The team functions smoothly when all team members know their positions, functions, and tasks during a resusitation attempt." What element of team dynamics is this?

Clear roles and responsibilities.

Why is allowing complete chest recoil important?

The heart will adequately refill between compressions

When should rescuers switch positions during CPR?

Switch rescuers every 2 minutes

If you notice that the person performing chest compressions is not allowing complete chest recoil, what can you do?

Tell the compressor that you notice decreased chest recoil.

Rapid defibrillation is important to survival because
