CPR: Why is it best to immediately ventilate an unconscious person with a severe airway obstruction?

When a person becomes unconscious while receiving the Heimlich maneuver; and after laying the patient supine and seeing that there is no visible obstruction to clear via the mouth, the next step is to attempt to ventilate.

Doesn't this pose the risk of forcing an obstructing object farther down into the airway? Wouldn't it make more sense to immediately perform chest compressions?

Two thoughts: Most AHA text books indicate the rescuer should immediate begin CPR (Which could be interpreted as Chest Compressions First)....
More Likely: The Object will not be forced further "Down" the airway because most objects are "on top of" the airway and if the object could have moved further down, it would have already, by the vacuum the victim (patient) creates by trying to "suck" in air before collapsing.
Also, many victims relax their muscle a bit when falling unresponsive and are no longer "sucking" air in (No Vacuum) and the object falls off the top of the airway to the "other tube" esophagus or other part of the Oral Pharynx. Thanks.  (+ info)

Do twice as many boys get the condition of PUJ obstruction than girls?

I have just had my 18 week ultrasound and was unable to find out the sex of my baby because the legs were crossed. My results read as follows:
Normal pregnancy of 18.5 weeks. No abnormality has been demonstrated. Mild pyelectasis of the left kidney is demonstrated which is most likely physiological, however progress ultrasound at 32 weeks is recommended to exclude underlying PUJ obstruction.
I have heard that twice as many boys get the condition of PUJ obstruction than girls. Does this mean im having a boy?

If what you heard is correct, then you have a 2/3 chance of having a boy. The 2/3 chance of a boy is twice the 1/3 chance of a girl.

I'm not sure about the validity of that fact though, but your question at the end simply asks if it means you're having a boy. Not necessarily.  (+ info)

My friend is suffering from an obstruction in her colon. She is urinating darker than usua ar the two related?

My friend is suffering from an obstruction in her colon.l She notices that when he urinates the color of her urine is darker than normal, and she wonders if there is a relationship between the coor of her urine and her intestinal obstruction. what wold you tell her?

Maybe, maybe not. If she is dehydrated, that contributes to both the bowel obstruction and dark urine. Is she drinking enough water? Is she on any medications? Is there any severe pain? She could have a UTI, a perforation, etc., or simply dehydration. Go to the doctor.  (+ info)

What's the best treatment for urethral strictures?

I had urethral strictures, and had my first minor operation using dilatation. A metal tube is inserted my penile opening to widen the urethra. Can this cure urethral strictures? my doctor said that urethral strictures are recurring, and that I have to do this every year to keep it widened.
Please let me know if there is big hope for no-recurring strictures in the future. Refer me a website please.


You just said the doctor told you this will need to be done once a year that should tell you there is not a big hope it will not recur. If you don’t believe him get another opinion.  (+ info)

They say it helps push down things in the throat. My brother has a esophagus problem where he gets things stuck in throat.  (+ info)

Can you get a urethral stent surgically implanted to cause incontinence (for that reason)?

I understand that urethral stents force the urethra open to allow the passage of urine. If you so desired, could you get such a thing permanently installed to cause incontinence in the user?

Well, it does seem possible that a stent would do that; but why would anyone want this to happen? I'm curious, if only because it sounds like such an unusual desire.

I would venture a guess that you would not be able to find a licensed physician to do such a thing, either.  (+ info)

What is a urethral dialator for male bladder?

After the my prostrate surgery, I still had some tissue blocking urine flow that why is was burning when I urinate so my urologist clean my bladder out and told me to use urethral dialator to clean tissue out once a day for 2 week

Otherwise known as a "sound".

Amazing things and can feel REALLY nice too ;)

have a look..........http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=urethral+sounding&btnG=Google+Search&meta=

Looks scary, FEELS wonderful :)

IMPORTANT TIP - drink PLENTY of water beforehand - so when you urinate afterwards, it is very mild, this will make sure it doesn't "sting" a little. If you have strong urine after sounding, it can sting unpleasantly. REALLY mild urine - no problems at all.

Make sure EVERYTHING is nice and clean - use LOADS of lubricant and let gravity do the work. NEVER force anything.  (+ info)

What is a urethral dialtor for male bladder?

After the my prostrate surgery, I still had some tissue blocking urine flow that why is was burning when I urinate so my urologist clean my bladder out and told me to use urethral dialator to clean tissue out once a day for 2 week

The urethra is the channel that runs from the bladder, through the prostate and penis and exits at the glans. A urethreurynter or dilator is a tube with a rigid end that is inserted into the urethra in order to (temporarily) widen or dilate the channel.
I hope your doctor supplied you with one or several disposable ones and gave you explicit instructions, as the mucosa lining of the urethra is delicate.  (+ info)

Do rhinoplastys fix headaches and nasal obstruction?

I have pressure all the time at the bump on the bridge of my nose. I also have some nasal obstruction in my left nostril.

Yes i think it will fix all nasel issues...  (+ info)
