Reduction in the ventilation tidal volume for patients not in
cardiovascular collapse to approximately one half of that
recommended previously.
Volume should approximate 6 to 7 mL/kg over 1.5 to 2 seconds
Higher volumes 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
hypoxia and hypercarbia.
Provide supplemental oxygen, adjusted on the basis of oxygen
saturation readings.
