Infant Ventilation With Barrier Devices
First, position yourself directly above the infant’s head place the mask on the victim’s face using the bridge of the nose as a guide. use the thumb and index finger of one hand to make a “c” to press around the edges of the mask.the remaining fingers of your hand should form an “e” to lift the angle of the jaw and open the airway.
If you tilt or extend an infant ’s head beyond the neutral position, the infant’s airway may become blocked. make sure you hold the mask against the face with your thumb and index finger while using the remaining fingers of that hand to lift the jaw and open the airway.
Make sure you make a tight seal between the mask and and the infant’s face. squeeze the bag with your other hand to deliver just enough breath to make the chest rise. deliver each breath over 1 second. if the chest doesn’t rise,then you are not providing adequate breaths. adjust the mask, reposition the head and neck,or administer a larger amount of air.
