Airway Management - Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Airway management is a high priority for clinical care. This is because if there is no airway, there can be no breathing, hence no oxygenation of blood and therefore circulation (and hence all the other vital body processes) will soon cease. The ‘A’ is for ‘airway’ in the ‘CAB’ (chest compressions-airway-breathing) of cardiopulmonary resuscitation according to the 2010 American Heart Association and International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation CPR guidelines.
