The staff has called 911, now you are completing a set of 30 compressions. What must you do when some food appears to be coming out of the patients mouth?
Attempt to get rid of the food that you can see with a finger sweep, then attempt to ventilate the patient with a bag valve mask.
You must recheck your patient’s airway after every set of 30 compressions that you administer. You must also remove any food particles that are easily reached and visible, and then try to ventilate the patient twice in order to be sure that you have re-established an airway.
