Instructions and Help about Who Form 2220 Certification

Welcome back all of my wonderful nurses I hope you all are having a wonderful day I know that you have noticed a new name change for a channel it is now called the RV travel nurse formerly the creationist I have made the change simply because I am a travel nurse and I will be focusing a lot of videos on travel nursing as well as RV living and you know things under the category of just nursing in general we're still gonna do our CN review we're still gonna do you know a bunch of other things but in the meantime this is big and exciting I'm so excited I'm finally you know pursuing my dream of making YouTube videos giving you all education content and taking you along with me in my journey so today we're gonna talk about a video that's been very very long requested it is the ACLS how to pass it like a boss so stay tuned Music so I want to preface this video by saying we're gonna kind of go over a little bit of your BLS as well as your ACLs I'm not gonna make a separate video for BLS just simply because of the fact that a lot of the information that's covered in your BLS is also really covered in your ACLs um so I'm kind of combining those together so if you listen to the course I'm gonna touch on key points I'm not gonna go into a full depth conversation regarding ACLs and BLS and really gonna cover what's important for you to know for your megacode as well as what you need to know for your tests so to begin with we're gonna start off with our basic life support information so what is the first thing that you're gonna do in regards to your ACLs as well as your BLS you're gonna check for responsiveness of the patient you're gonna attack the patient hey are you okay if they don't answer you you're gonna shout for help you want to immediately activate the emergency response system let that person know this activating it or if there's someone else there please find me an ADR defibrillator some people know them a little bit differently some people don't know an AED is step 3 you want to check for breathing and pulse if there is no pulse and no breathing you're gonna begin CPR immediately but the one top key thing that you need to know and what will probably be on your chest as well as your megacode is you want to check for breathing and pulse no more than 10 seconds 10 seconds at the max start CPR if a pulse is present you can start rescue breathing if somebody's kind of just gasping for air not agonal gas but just kind of unconscious but they have a pulse you wanted to start rescue breaths make sure that oxygenation is getting to the brain when you're doing compressions the main number one thing red red you see it in red is you need to do a hundred to a hundred and twenty chest compressions per minute that is ACLS guidelines as well as BLS guidelines respirations one every five to six seconds you do not want to do more than that because you can't actually hyperventilate so when you begin your megacode you're gonna fall a very detailed plan of how you're going to assess and treat these patients so you're always gonna start out with your basic BLS which we just covered then you're gonna move on to your primary survey which actually has a very good mnemonic it's a b c d e your airway your breathing your circulation your disability in your exposure all which we'll cover don't worry and then you've got your secondary survey we're gonna cover that at the end of the primary survey so to begin we're going to start with our a our airway you're gonna maintain a airway patency in unconscious patients whether that is putting him in an advanced airway whether it is bagging until you can get an advanced airway we need to make sure that the airway is paint we need to confirm that our CPR our ventilations are adequate so what does that mean we're making sure that we're pushing 100 to 120 compressions per minute and that we're giving one breath every five to six seconds something very big you need to know when you're doing your megacode is you want to secure the device you want to make sure that once a airway is placed that that device is secured on that patient so that it is not moving those are very important things that you need to know for your megacode you want to monitor the airway placement how do you do that it continuous quantitative wave form capnography so there's a couple different things that that is achieved by there's a little device that actually sits on the bag that'll change colors if there is positive co2 moving in and out of the patient there is also a machine that you can hook the patient up to that'll actually give you information regarding their capnography where they at are at in their carbon-dioxide their co2 usually between 35 to 45 is what is achievable in regards to a stable patient however if your patient is not stable or they've been in cardiac arrest for a period of time obviously those numbers are gonna be a little bit different so moving on in our primary sir we're gonna go on two breathing you're gonna give supplemental oxygen is needed really a hundred percent oxygenation for those that are in arrest and you want to titrate the oxygen for staple patient so the patient is stable they have a pulse they're breathing but their oxygenation is a little bit low obviously you want to give them oxygen and
