I agree with Esme12, I had to repeat this critical skill in Lab. The scenario was a toddler, coughing, what do you do? The correct response was: nothing, or stand-by, or monitor for coughing to stop. I tried to fingerswipe to remove Foriegn body; thus I crashed and burned, and had to repeat critical second time (ah nursing school
), but that's the trade off, I will never forget it
. Yes, I felt like a dumbXXX, but they got a ton of students on the first try with this.
Had I just remembered common sense, what do I do in the mall when a child coughs? Nothing.
If they turned cyanotic, and hit the floor with purple lips, I would have been the first to PALs rescue.
But, once again, it was just a plastic dummy anyway.
