BLS Scenario 2 - Adult Respiratory Arrest - Learn & Master ACLS/PALS


  1. Nassaha kassim says

    In assessment we begin with airway then breathing,why did we start with breathibg and pulse before checking the airway??

    • ACLS says

      The initial step after verifying unresponsiveness is to check for pulse and breathing simultaneously. There is no airway check at this step of the BLS cardiac arrest algorithm. See page 15 AHA BLS Provider Manual.
      Kind regards,
