How Do You Manage Vomit in First Aid and CPR?
Stomach contents are often regurgitated during CPR. And this is a positive action, so you are unlikely to see or hear it happening.
However, vomit in the airway can cause a casualty to choke, so it must be managed properly.
Would you know how to manage vomit during CPR? In this blog we will explain how to recognise if a casualty has vomited and how to react to keep the casualty safe.
What steps should I take if a casualty vomits during CPR?
Vomit in the airway makes gurgling noises when you give rescue breaths. If this happens:
- Roll the casualty onto their side, tip the head back and allow the vomit to run out.
- Clean the casualty's face then continue CPR, using a protective barrier if possible.
- Minimise the interruption to CPR.
