The brain suffers irreversible damage unless Cardio Clear 7 Review some circulation of oxygenated blood can be achieved within 2 or 3 minutes. A smart blow should be given to the left of the sternum with the hand or fist, and both legs should be elevated to 90 degrees. If the heart does not start immediately, as indicated by the return of the carotid or femoral pulse, closed chest massage and mouth-to-mouth breathing should be instituted. The patient is laid on the back on the floor, or on boards which are put on the mattress behind the chest. The operator places the hands one on top of the other on the patient's lower sternum and commences forceful rhythmic compressions at the rate of 60-100/mm.The danger of fracturing ribs is reduced if the pressure is transmitted through the ball of the hand on to the sternum. At the same time ventilation must be ensured. The head is extended and the jaw pulled forward. Mouth-to-mouth or mouth-to-nose breathing is employed until a face mask and bag are available. The lungs should be ventilated after every fifth compression of the sternum. Meanwhile an intravenous infusion should be set up containing sodium bicarbonate (50-100 mmol) in order to combat acidosis. Where a defibrillator is available it should be used as soon as possible, for no harm is done if the patient proves to have a systole rather than ventricular fibrillation. The success rate is best for accidental death or for those who have had a myocardial infarction but without shock or heart failure. If it transpires that the acute circulatory failure was due to cardiac rupture following myocardial infarction, cardiac tamponade or massive pulmonary embolism, resuscitation will be almost certainly unsuccessful. Emergency resuscitation steps are: Do hyper-extend head and raise chin Direct mouth-to-mouth breathing Indirect mouth-to-mouth breathing
