answer We select a mask that fits over the nose and mouth without fitting over the eyes We make sure the airway is clear We position the baby’s head in the sniffing position Use less than 30cmH20 pressure to inflate Deliver 40-60 BPM breath…2…3…breath…2…3…
answer With in 30 seconds a.see & feel the chest rise b.Have someone listen to the BBS c.Monitor the patient’s HR which should rise as the baby gets good ventilation d.Observe the skin color get pinker e.And the baby’s muscle tone improve
What if these good results fail to happen within 30 seconds?
answer Reassess the seal around mask Re-establish head position Increase PIP till you see chest rising If these don’t work, orally intubate Check that the 02 line has not come off the bag or that the flow meter has not been turned off Is the belly getting full of air?
If you will have to mask bag for more than a few minutes what hazards need to be avoided?
answer Gastric insufflations: get an 8 French feeding tube tube into the baby Poor seal: monitor head position and mask position
answer Without interrupting mask bagging, measure from bridge of nose to ear lobe and then to midway between the xyphoid process and the naval. Note the cm mark at this point Insert tube through the mouth & aspirate stomach contents with syringe Remove syringe so gas can be vented from belly
answer When the baby’s HR is less than 60 BPM after 30 seconds of effective ventilations, we start compressions at 90 BPM If the HR is above 60 BPM, we continue to mask bag until the HR gets above 100 BPM; if the patient is still apneic, intubate
What is the function of the pressure gauge on the self-inflating manual resuscitator? What is the function of the reservoir on the back of the bag?
answer pressure gauge helps you determine the PIP being used to inflate the lung A properly-sized reservoir on the back of the bag helps raise the Fi02 of the bag to close to 90- 100%
What is the Fi02 of the self-inflating manual resuscitator without the reservoir?

Keep finger over PEEP cap Set PIP on right-sided dial; keep finger over PEEP cap Set the PEEP by removing finger from PEEP cap and adjusting level between zero to 5 cmH20 on the top of the cap itself
How do you perform chest compressions in the newborn
answer Draw a line between the nipples and place hands just below this line on lower 1/3 rd of sternum Thumb method: encircle the chest, fingers support the spine Two finger method: compress Depress 1/3 rd of the AP diameter of chest
While doing compressions on the newborn do you spend more time going down or coming up?
answer The duration of the downward stroke needs to be slightly shorter than the upward stroke
