The clear liquid could be indicative of a basilar skull fracture.








First check the airway. Make sure clear of any foreign objects like a ball or bone. If the airway is clear then get to your Veterinarian or to the nearest Emergency Clinic immediately.


It will first advise that it will analyze (in which case nobody should touch the patient). Next, it will advise if a shock is or isn't required.



Chest compressions are for cardiac problems, to maintain some blood circulation. The Heimlich Maneuver is for a blocked airway. If the person has a blocked airway and Heimlich did not clear it, chest compressions are not going to help. Find other ways to clear the airway.


The action to clear a blocked airway is an abdominal thrust. This is called the Heimlich maneuver. This is a technique for a conscious victim who is 1 years old or older.


Head (Unless you're a Fighter pilot... Then of course you'll miss this question, because the words "Cranium", "Skull" and "Noggin" are not available options)


If the patient is choking, the first priority is to clear the airway, not check the pulse. The airway should be cleared first, and then once the rescue breaths go in, check for a pulse.


Roll the patient on their side, clear the airway (remove the vomit), roll them on their back, open the airway (head tilt chin lift method), resume CPR.


Performing the abdominal thrusts and back blows should dislodge the object; sweeping the object out with your finger removes it from the throat.



A nasopharyngeal airway, (aka NPA or a nasal trumpet), is a tube inserted into the nasal passageway of an unconscious victim to provide an open airway (when unconscious the jaw muscles relax and the tongue to falls back obstructing the airway).NPA is contraindicated (not used) in patients with severe head or facial injuries, or a basilar skull fracture (Battle's sign, raccoon eyes, cerebrospinal fluid/blood from ears, etc.) due to the possibility of direct contact with brain tissue.

To clear liquids out of the airway/mouth


Not sure where the "Vigorously" comes from, but all newborns are suctioned at birth, The mouth first followed by the nostrils. This is done to clear the airway immediately. Your basic ABC's (Airway, Breathing, Circulation) That rule never goes away.


If you see something in the airway simply sweep it out with your finger. Never do a blind sweep (if you don't see anything) Keep doing CPR.


used only as a last resort after traditional airway clearance techniques and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) have been tried repeatedly and failed or if it is clear that a solid foreign object is blocking the airway


You should use an OPA (oropharyngeal airway) or NPA (nasopharyngeal airway) in less severe cases of upper airway obstruction. For example, an OPA or NPA can be helpful in a child with Pierre-Robin Syndrome causing obstruction of the upper airway at the level of the tongue. An OPA should ONLY be used in an unconscious patient, as it will stimulate gagging. NPA's should be inserted carefully to avoid nasopharyngeal trauma and bleeding. NPA's are CONTRAINDICATED in severe head or facial injuries (bruising behind the ears, raccoon eyes, blood or clear fluid leaking out of the ears or nose), patients on anticoagulants, patients with nasal infections, and patients with nasal deformities.A nasopharyngeal airway is used when you don't want to intubate the victim. Sometimes all you need is that open airway.Open airway
