The Purpose Of Giving Nrbm And BVM?
Hello doctor…rnWhy is nrbm given? Is it true if the RR is more than 20 it is given nrbm?rnWhy is it given bvm? Is it true that RR is less than 10 and more than 30 given bvm?*
Hello Yunita Asna, thank you for your question
In general, oxygen therapy is divided into 2, namely: Administration of oxygen with slow and fast flow. Examples of slow-flow oxygen administration include using a nasal cannula, simple facemask, partial rebreathing mask and nonrebreathing mask (NRBM). The purpose of giving NRBM is so that patients can get oxygen with high concentrations (above 60%) but without requiring respiratory assistance, for example in head injuries, cluster headaches, carbon monoxide poisoning. Patients with this condition usually have a respiratory rate above normal, which is more than 20 breaths per minute.
while the provision of BVM or commonly referred to as ambubag, is intended for patients with respiratory arrest or other conditions whose respiratory conditions are inadequate. This is because the administration of oxygen with an ambubag also provides positive pressure in patients receiving this type of oxygen therapy. So a respiratory rate of less than 10 or more than 30 is not always the main criterion, because doctors have other considerations in giving this type of oxygen therapy.
That's my answer, I hope it's useful.
