Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support – AHA Guidelines –2000
Reduction in the ventilation tidal volume for patients not in
cardiovascular collapse to approximately one half of that
Volume should approximate 6 to
7 mL/kg over 1.5 to 2 seconds
increase risk of gastric inflation without
improving blood oxygenation.
For clinical guidance, resuscitation
professionals can use the
"chest rise" sign as a rough
indication of ventilation tidal
volumes that are in the range
of 6 to 7 mL/kg.
Smaller tidal volumes, however, raise the risk of inducing both
