Equipment check before announcing failure of procedures

Recommended Posts

How are you all ☺👋hope you are all fine ..allow me to share this point of view with you 

Scene 1. Very critical baby and receiving ambu bag ventilation not improving ... Befor announcing failure of this step

..check your equipment ;proper positioning of ambu mask ..ambu bag valves  ..your oxygen flow meter is open and on proper oxygen level ..

Any one like to share with me examples of equipment check befor announcing failure 😊

When I was a fellow, I trained at a delivery hospital that used flow-inflating bags and it made this sort of failure very easy to recognize (if there was any defect in flow, the bag would not inflate).  The downside to this is that without flow you can't give ANY respiratory support (after a critical incident of this kind where the flow inflating bag actually ripped in the middle of a resuscitation, we started stocking an emergency ambulance bag as back-up).
