All right, now let's cover infant rescue breathing.
This is going to be used when you have a baby who is not breathing or not breathing normally, but they
do have a brachial pulse. Now, in this scenario, we have assessed the scene. The scene is safe, gloves are on.
Our CPR shield is available. We check to see if the baby is responsive. They're not responsive.
We can see that they're not breathing. We activate the emergency medical services or call a code.
We check a brachial pulse for no more than ten seconds. I do feel a pulse easily in the brachial artery,
but the baby is still not breathing. So I'm going to begin rescue breathing. I'm going to cover the
mouth and the nose of the baby with a mask, sealing all the way around, tilting the head back into a neutral
position, giving one breath every 3 seconds for about 2 minutes. Checking for chest rise and fall
and readjusting the head until you get good air into the lungs, getting a good chest rise and fall.
After two minutes, I'm going to re-assess the brachial artery. If I do not feel a pulse, I'm going to move right into CPR.
If I feel a pulse but there's still no breathing, continue rescue breathing, one breath every
3 seconds for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, re-assess the pulse. We're only going to stop rescue breathing
and checking pulses when an AED arrives and we hook them up to the AED; when they're pulseless;
and/or when EMS or the next level of care arrives.
Baby, baby, are you alright, are you ok? There is no response. They don't appear to be breathing.
Go activate the emergency medical services or call 911 or call a code. Checking a brachial pulse. I can easily feel a pulse, but they're not breathing.
I'm going to do this for about 2 minutes then check a pulse. If the pulse is still present but the baby's not breathing,
I'll continue rescue breathing 1 breath every 3 seconds for another 2 minutes.
If the pulse is gone and the baby is not breathing I'm going to start CPR.
I'll do this until an AED arrives on the pulseless baby or until Emergency Medical Services arrive and takes over.
