Welcome to the lesson on one rescuer BLS in children. In this video, we'll discuss step by step procedure for providing BLS in children with one rescuer. If you're alone with a child in a life threatening situation, first tap their shoulders and talk loudly to them to determine if they're responsive. Then it says they're breathing. If the child does not respond and is not breathing, or is only gasping for air, then yell for help. If someone responds, send them to call 911 and get an ad.
If you're not in the healthcare facility, or activate emergency response system and get a defibrillator if you are in health care facility. Feel for the child's carotid pulse on the side of the neck or femoral pulse on the inner thigh in the crease between their leg and growing. Feel from no more than 10 seconds. If you cannot feel the pulse, or if you're unsure that you feel a pulse, begin CPR by doing 30 compressions followed by two breaths. If you can't feel a pulse, but the pulse rate is less than 60 beats per minute, begin CPR. This rate is too slow for a child after doing CPR for about two minutes, which is usually five cycles of 30, compressions and two breaths, and if help has not arrived, call SMS on staying with the child.
The ha emphasizes to use speaker equipped cell phones that are available everywhere now. Get an ad for a defibrillator if you know where one is. Use and follow the prompts on the Add or defibrillator while continuing CPR until the MS arrives or until child's condition normalizes. This concludes our lesson on one rescuer BLS and children. Next, we'll review to rescue a BLS in children.
