Chest compressions are not classified as aerosol generating. However, the Trust has made a decision to wear the level of PPE that is required for aerosol generating procedures in this instance and recommend FFP3 masks, although CPR must not be delayed due to this.
No, all of the PPE that is worn when undertaking an aerosol generating procedure should be used for dealing with that individual service user only.
Each emergency bag has 4 sets of PPE for use in the event of CPR.
Sneezing is not classified as aerosol generating.
