Can I Do Resuscitation If You Experience A Broken Chest?
Hello, this is how I want to ask about RJP. If for example when we meet someone who has an accident and after we check it turns out he stopped the heart or stopped breathing, then when we want to do CPR it turns out the person has a bone fracture in the chest. Can we still do the RJP on the basis of first aid or do we have to do something else? Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cardiac pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an attempt to provide basic life support in the form of compression / compression of the chest wall to stimulate the heart to pump blood and provide breathing assistance. This action is given for people in cardiac arrest. Actions can be carried out by anyone as long as they are trained. If carried out by a trained layman, the action is enough to compress / compress the chest wall only, without the aid of breathing.
One bad possibility that can occur while performing CPR is a chest fracture. If this happens, rescuers can continue chest compressions until the family asks not to be done again or come for medical help or if the victim has shown a response.
To minimize the occurrence of chest fractures when performing CPR, rescuers need to take CPR measures according to the standard, namely by placing one of the palms in the center of the victim's chest and then placing the other hand on the first hand. Then tighten the fingers of both hands and apply chest pressure as deep as 5-6 cm with the elbows still straight (not bending, so that the force of pressure comes from the helper shoulder), then release. Repeat applying pressure in the chest 100-120 times the pressure every minute until medical help comes or until the victim shows a response or the family asks for action to be stopped.
Thus hopefully useful.
