So we're just gonna run through Action Plan, which is in any situation, Okay, so the first thing that we do is we check for dangerous and just want to make sure that it's safe for us to approach a casualty. In this case, it's a baby. So just want to make sure that there's nothing dangerous in the way and if we can move those dangers of those dangers, then we do sorry. And when it's safe to approach we do. So we go through danger, and we want to go through our response. So the way that we check for a response on a baby, it's just use our fingers or I found just in their hands like what will happen as a mom, you check her response on a baby on the block.
You don't really want to wipe them off in their face, in case they're sleeping because most of the time they play things they just want to see if BAM their fingers will curl around. If they This Colorado finger or your thumb, and you know you've got a response and you know everything's okay. Okay? But if you're not getting a response, that's concerning, sorry, we do fingers and thumbs in the hands. The other thing we can do is to cultivate just a little tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle. And normally that's enough to get a response.
It says my response, that's when we really need to send to help, we need to call for an ambulance. So if there's someone else nearby, out to them, ask them to call an ambulance for you. If you're on your arm, grab your phone, call for an ambulance culturable zero Papa on hold so that you can help help your baby in the meantime, such as send for help. The next thing we want to do is check the airway. What we want to do is just say that there's nothing blocking the airway. And we don't want to talk baby's head back too far because babies do developing their next door.
I'm quite sensitive. So we just took a head back just a little bit and just stated anything blocking the airway. If there is something in there, what we need to do is get it out and that's how we do that is we put baby in recovery and Like this around the chin. So put their head and put them into recovery with your finger, you want to try and get that object out. Okay? Once you've done that, then you want to check the breathing.
Okay? You want to look, listen and feel okay? For about about 10 seconds, no more than 10 seconds, okay? So by pop baby on the back, if we check the airway and there's nothing in the airway, then we can go straight into checking for breathing down like so, the hand on the chest, listen, and we'll look just to see if we can see by breathing. Goodbye, me is breathing, then we'll pop it back into recovery while we wait for the ambulance to come. If baby is not breathing, then we need to go straight into our CPR.
So what we'll do is we're basically straight on to the markets in the center of the chest is where we're heating. So we're going straight through here without two fingers, and we Want to go straight down we go about a third of the depth of the chest, and we're gonna do 30 compressions. I've taught that a compressions we're gonna do, we're gonna do two breaths a little bit. We should say a little Rise of the chessboard putting in a little breath. We put in our two breath, and we go straight back into our compressions and we do 30 and 230 and 230 and two, and when you do put the breath in your mouth will probably go over the noise as well. That's okay.
The aircon goes in through the mouth and the noise that is absolutely fine. Okay, so you know that the ambulance is on, it's fine. You just keep doing CPR in the meantime with your 30 compressions and two breaths If you feel uncomfortable during the breath, what you can do is you can just do the compressions but we do recommend doing the breath. You know when if baby starts breathing again you'll be able to see the baby be able to see, you know, it will stop, the baby will start to move. You'll be able to hear those breaths coming in and the shipping some kind of job it might stop vomiting, those sorts of things. Once it is breathing, what we want to do is pop baby into recovery.
Like sorry, while we wait for the ambulance to come and we want to monitor the baby to see if there's any other injuries or anything else that we might not have noticed beforehand, when a cape baby in recovery while we wait for the ambulance to come.
