BVM – step by step
optimization of the BVM – from first effort to best effort
Remember, a BVM is one of three upper airway lifelines that can delivery lifesaving oxygen to your patient. Use it as part of the Vortex Approach to make it a more powerful tool to achieve your goal of implementing the 1st law of emergency airway.
Like every upper airway lifeline, your first effort may not work. If your first attempt fails you need to be able to rapidly optimize to achieve your best effort. We call this the Oxygenation Cycle and you can find more in this space.
