Basic Life Support in Children

00:00

Your neighbour is knocking at the door saying that she had left her 5-year-old daughter playing on the floor. When she got back, the girl was lying on the floor without movement. What will you do?

You will give her 5 back blows.

Wrong answer

If the child is unconscious, it is necessary to start CPR. Therefore it is important to evaluate the situation at first.


Back

You will ask her to give a cough.

Wrong answer

You will ask the child to cough only in case of mild airway obstruction. At first we have to find out whether the child is able to answer or cough.


Back

You will check for a response by shaking her shoulder and asking her loudly: “What has happened to you”?

Correct answer

It is always necessary to evaluate the security situation before first contact with the patient.
