Bob The Nob: Strange how his arms raised slowly by themselves right after they laid him down and began the chest compressions.Paging Dr. Fark ...
Marshall Willenholly: I wonder if the stress of being filmed for a TV show had anything to do with him having a heart attack right there in front of the cameras?
WTFDYW: Nice find subster. Should be shown at CPR/AED classes.
blackySM2: Why hasn't anyone talked about how fake this is?
Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: Marshall Willenholly: I wonder if the stress of being filmed for a TV show had anything to do with him having a heart attack right there in front of the cameras?Lolz. Any stress from being filmed is negligible compared to the stress of simply doing his job.My wife's an ESD/911 Op. I'm a state-certified firefighter (volunteer). Emergency services is stressful work, and you don't always eat that well considering the hours involved (wife does 12-hours shifts, overnight... no lunch break. Eat when/if you can, generally quick and easy, less-than-healthy food). #1 cause of death for emergency service workers is heart attack. As a firefighter, you're MUCH more likely to drop dead in the station/at home/on the fireground than you are to actually DIAF.I can't speak for the firefighter/police/EMT crews, but there isn't a single dispatcher in our county that isn't medicated for stress/anxiety/depression/blood pressure/cardiac issues. Being on the line with someone as they shuffle off their mortal coil is a regular occurance for the folks on the phones and radios. People dying on you all the time wears on you over the course of a career.
WTFDYW: I emailed this video to my work email. it will come in handy with training sessions.Thank you subby
dramboxf: I also hear a lot of medics whining about possibly losing ETI in favor or King or other advanced airways.
dramboxf: I helped teach a CFR class as recently as fall of 2011 and we were still All About The Long Board
Wise_Guy: How does an AED work?
Perlin Noise: that video was somewhat intense ...thank you for no voice commentary crap. That made it a lot better.
AverageAmericanGuy: That was pretty awesome. Thanks for the link, subby.
dramboxf: Nice find, subby.
BronyMedic: really shocked this went green.
WTFDYW: I purchased four AEDs for our company a year or so ago. I hope it was a "waste" of $6000.00.
