You are manually ventilating a patient using a bag valve mask (BVM). The patient is connected to pulse oximetry and the oxygen saturation reading is 80. You do not see the chest rise. What steps can you take?
Put down the ambu bag and start mouth to mouth resuscitation using a barrier device.
Reposition the head and make sure you have a tight seal with the mask.
Do a finger sweep of the mouth to make sure it’s clear.
Squeeze the bag much faster.
