This module aims to help nurses to open and maintain an adult’s airway while providing breaths using a self-inflating bag and face mask. Maintaining a patient’s airway is vital in the management of acute, life-threatening illnesses and injuries. The nurse should address airway compromise immediately since it is a major factor in acute deterioration and may develop rapidly. The nurse should perform the head tilt and chin lift manoeuvre, or the jaw thrust manoeuvre for patients with suspected cervical spine injury, to maintain airway opening.
