Aidan: Shadow Blasko: Funny, they keep telling us it is staying alive./Should go read the articleThat's what I thought too. I thought the new rules were "Stayin' Alive or Another One Bites the Dust to your personal taste. Don't do breathing."

traylor: I have just done my first aid exams two weeks ago, so I'm... shaking my head in disbelief.The trick that worked for me is counting every second push and keep the rhythm of counting at around one per second./I know the driving license training is genuinely farked up in the US, are first aid exams even mandatory?

YoOjo: CPR Kills people.I am serious, doctors don't want CPR
Highroller48: YoOjo: CPR Kills people.I am serious, doctors don't want CPRWow...you suck at context more than a Fox video editor at the DNC.Doctors don't want to have CPR done ON THEM if they are in cardiac arrest from a NON-traumatic illness (like old age or a terminal disease) because it's only designed to be used in acute situations where the heart stopped suddenly but the body is otherwise functioning (heart attack, drowning, etc.) Reason is that it doesn't work half of the time and the odds of having brain damage from oxygen deprivation are high, and they don't want to become vegetables after battling ALS for 20 years or something. if they hit their head ona diving board and go into arrest, you can rest assured they'd like you to start pumping.CPR doesn't "kill" people any more than airbags or seatbelts "kill" people. It's a question of the odds. 99% of the time the seatbelt will help you, not hurt you, so you wear it. More often than not CPR will help a person (or at least not make them any worse), so you should do it for all sudden heart stoppages not caused by long-term declining illness.
