Asphyxia is a condition where breathing has stopped. It may be
caused as a result of such accidents as:
- Electrical Shock
- Poisoning by gases such as carbon monoxide, illumination
gas, and chemical warfare gases.
- Foreign bodies lodged in the throat, such as large piece
of food. Even though the victim of an accident has stopped
breathing, his heart may continue to beat for sometime,
and because of this fact...life may be saved if breathing
can be restored before the heard stops.
Remove the cause or remove the victim from the cause, then give
artificial respiration and treat for shock.
Artificial respiration: Natural breathing may be started after
it has stopped by the use by the use of manual or mechanical
methods. Mechanical methods required the use of machines that are
usually not available when most needed. Manual artificial
respiration, which can be conducted by anyone familiar with the
methods can be started immediately and can be continued until
natural breathing has started or until a mechanical respirator
The purpose of artificial respiration is to force breathing.
First air is forced out of the lungs: second air is forced into
the lungs. This is accomplished by alternating positive and
negative pressure within the chest cavity during the process of
INSTRUCTIONS FOR ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION
The following general principles must be remembered in applying
- Time is of prime importance. Begin artificial
respiration at once.
- Quickly sweep your fingers into the victim's mouth, removing
froth, artificial teeth, or other foreign debris.
- Begin artificial respiration and continue it rhythmically
and uninterruptedly until natural breathing starts.
Continue artificial respiration for about 4 hours or longer
unless victim is declared dead by a medical officer.
Even though the victim appears dead to you, do not give
up. The usual tests for deaths, such as absence of
heartbeat and pulse, are not acceptable for these cases.
- As soon as the victim begins to breath for himself, or when
additional help is available, loosen the clothing, place in a
more comfortable position, remove wet clothing and cover with
a blanket or other suitable cover. DO NOT interrupt a
steady rhythmical artificial respiration to do this.
Have others do it or wait until he is breathing without
- In carrying out manual artificial respiration, it may be
necessary to change operators. This change must be made
without losing the rhythm of artificial respiration.
Have the relief assume the same position alongside the
operator, go thorough the motions a few times with the
operator until the same rhythm is established. 'The
change of operators can then be made without loss of motion or
- If the victim begins to breathe on his own, adjust your
timing to suit his. DO NOT interfere with the victim's
attempt to breathe.
