Paediatric Resus

Tag: PhotosKal @ 3:43 pm

Not quite what’s normally meant, but you’re never too young to learn a little prehospital airway management. Lesson 1: equipment familiarisation.

A photo for anyone who’s ever had their hand cramp up sucking endless crap out of someone’s mouth, while leaning to the left to avoid the “overflow” scooshing out and covering your uniform.

Off downstairs for coffee and writing now.

    I hope that suction unit hasn’t been used before…unless you are boosting the little one’s immune system!

    Oh my goodness – I think I have a huge chunk of almost EXACTLY that same zoo fabric in my stash as leftovers from making a quilt for a work mate’s granddaughter!

    Now that’s the kind of paedy suction we all wish happened… and no other kind!
    Shame i find Vitalographs to be bl*8dy cr4p! I miss the old ambupump. Basic but the most effective i have come across.
