'I told her to push on the baby's chest five to 10 times with only two fingers, tilt back the baby's head, plug the baby's nose and breathe into the baby's mouth,' said Rocky.

Seconds later, the baby started streaming.


I bet it was a Comcast outage.

Znuh: In before the farkers yelling that CPR is only 1% effective, etc. etc.


Fortunately, for the baby it was 100% effective.

The mother is kinda cute. Hopefully she takes care of herself and remembers to reward those boys in ten years when they are men.

/Of course, since it's Georgia that might have already happened.

Coming on a Bicycle: Znuh: In before the farkers yelling that CPR is only 1% effective, etc. etc.

It is. But that's because 90% of all CPR takes place in hospitals on people who have no hope anyway.


Erm, no. I don't mean to sound condescending here, but that's not why. The reason people say that is because when the mass media releases stories about how CPR doesn't work, they release stories that uses statistics that combine cardiac arrests that have a high level of survival with immediate bystander CPR, with things like Traumatic Cardiac arrests from massive blunt trauma and exsanguination, which have a <1% chance of survival. They also lump people in who no one touched for 10-15 minutes, and people who were unwitnessed arrests who had been down for unknown time lengths.

In hospital cardiac arrest survival is >50% because of the ready availability of advanced care.

In reality, if you suffer a primarily cardiac cause of cardiac arrest in a community where someone witnesses you doing so, and immediately begins CPR and activates EMS, you have a 20-50% chance of walking out of the hospital intact depending on the system you live in. That's why there is such a push to get laypeople trained on CPR. For all our advanced tools and equipment, we can't do jack shiat without Joe Averageguy deciding to step up and act to keep someone alive until we can get there, give our drugs and use our Magical Defibrillator, and rush someone to the cath lab table and begin therapeutic hypothermia.

In children and infants, they have a high rate of survival if their airways and respiration are adequately and immediately managed - since these are the most common reasons a kid arrests. This is why children still receive regular CPR, and not hands-only.

While CPR does NOT work like it is shown on TV, it does work, and it's the best chance for someone to survive and walk out of a hospital.

I thought CPR for an infant dictated putting your mouth over both their nose and mouth, not plugging the nose. Get it together boys
