Ventilación asistida con mascarilla

EM Didactics - December 14, 2015 - By Lakshay Chanana
We all are familiar with the CE technique that is used to deliver BMV. This is what we routinely learn during the ED/ Anesthesia/ critical care rotations and also at the life support courses. Is this the best way to deliver ventilation? May be not! 
Another technique that can be used is the "The two thumbs down technique" or "The thumbs up technique" that has potential advantages over the standard CE technique. 
You might get a weird look from those who are not familiar with this technique. Let people know what you are doing and why you are doing this OR just show them this video (by Rueben Strayer, emupdates).
Take Home: BMV is always a 2 person procedure (regardless of technique used) - Skilled person holds the mask and anyone else can provide the breaths + Consider the 2 thumbs down technique for BMV instead of the CE clamp.
