Unformatted text preview: Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Chapter 13 Airway Management and Ventilation Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Airway management and ventilation are the first and most critical steps in the initial assessment of every patient you will encounter. Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Topics Anatomy of the Respiratory System Physiology of the Respiratory System Respiratory Problems Respiratory System Assessment Airway Management Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Anatomy of the Respiratory System Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & The respiratory system provides a passage for oxygen to enter the body and for carbon dioxide to exit the body. Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Anatomy of the upper airway Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Upper Airway Nasal cavity Oral cavity Pharynx Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Pharynx Nasopharynx Oropharynx Laryngopharynx Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Nasal Cavity Maxillary bone Frontal bone Nasal bone Ethmoid bone Sphenoid bone Septum Sinuses Eustachian tubes Nasolacrimal ducts Nares Mucous membranes Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Larynx Thyroid cartilage Cricoid cartilage Glottic opening Vocal cords Arytenoid cartilage Pyriform fossae Cricothyroid cartilage Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Oral Cavity Cheeks Hard palate Soft palate Tongue Gums Teeth Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Internal anatomy of the upper airway Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Lower Airway Anatomy Trachea Bronchi Alveoli Lung parenchyma Pleura Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Anatomy of the lower airway Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Anatomy of the pediatric airway Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Anatomy of the alveoli Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Physiology of the Respiratory System Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Introduction Respiration is the exchange of gases between a living organism and its environment. Ventilation is the mechanical process that moves air into and out of the lungs. Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Pulmonary circulation Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Diffusion of gases across an alveolar membrane Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Measuring Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide Levels Partial pressure is the pressure exerted by each component of a gas mixture. Partial pressure of a gas is its percentage of the mixtures total pressure. Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & The Respiratory Cycle Pulmonary ventilation depends on pressure changes within the thoracic cavity. Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Oxygen (PaO 2 ) = 100 torr (average = 80 100) Carbon dioxide (PaCO 2 ) = 40 torr (average = 35 45) Normal Arterial Partial Pressures Bledsoe et al., Paramedic Care Principles & Factors Affecting Oxygen Concentration in the Blood Decreased hemoglobin concentration.Decreased hemoglobin concentration....
