From the article: "Although we should probably not regularly use CPR we learn in movies - that's how ribs get broken and people playing cardiothoracic surgeon cut into major veins and kill people"

I'd rather have a broken rib than a stopped heart.

I saw that and was baffled--who said anything about CPR?  Is the heimlich maneuver considered CPR?

I always thought that when CPR is done properly that you would have a cracked rib or two

Unless you're doing it on said 6 yearold, yes. You will break ribs. Especially on the elderly.

LordBeavis: Is the heimlich maneuver considered CPR?


If they're unconscious, the AHA 2010 guidelines for basic life support state you immediately start chest compressions, and at each ventilatory attempt, you examine the mouth after opening it to see if you can see the foreign object to remove. Otherwise resume compressions.

Nah, it's still used in a limited capacity. ACLS for the Experienced Provider has a lot more on it than standard ACLS (Like how it's a bad idea to hit the guy with the LVAD in), but they only use it now if a sudden cardiac arrest patient is on a monitor, they witness new onset v-fib on said monitor, and a defibrillator is not immediately available.

If you want to see stuff that will freak you out, ask to shadow in a university-level cardiac surgery ICU, and watch an LVAD/BiVAD patient. Setting there, talking to you, and in V-Fib. And no palpable pulse. Technology is awesome.

I thought the medical solution to someone talking to you with no pulse was to smack them with holy objects and yell "SATAN BE GONE!"

You've got to remove the head or destroy the brain. It's the only way to be sure.

That's exactly what I thought at first after seeing the Amusing tag. Subby could've gone with Spiffy or even Hero.

Well hi there.

This is total bullshiat. There is no way a 6-year-old would have the strength to do an actual Heimlich on an adult. Mom may have been choking but probably would have cleared it on her own. Also, it's possible to Heimlich yourself on a chair or anything convenient.

This is attention whoring.

First thing that occurred to me while reading this story was that it's good she didn't learn the maneuver from a transvestite....

From what I recall when I was younger and my mother was an EMT/CPR instructor, breaking the cartilage attaching the ribs to the sternum has a high probability, moreso for the elderly but not 100%.

I remember one night after she came back from a large class she taught alongside another instructor where she was royally pissed that the other one flat-out told the class that if they didn't hear the ribs break during CPR, they weren't compressing hard enough.

/She was a volunteer firefighter where I grew up for several years, watching shows/movies with fire or emergency scenes was a quick way to hear some rants about how it was being done wrong.

I heard an interview with Mr. Heimlich himself on NPR one day. He looks up every news story where someone's life was saved by the Heimlich maneuver. He's very proud of that. Also he was upset because the Red Cross said something derogatory about his trademark move--that people shouldn't use it, or it wasn't effective or something. He pointed out how many lives had been saved by it.

They were concerned that it could cause broken ribs or other injuries. There are alternatives such as chest compressions or blows to the back, but then again, the most important maneuver is one that works. Many people have heard of the Heimlich from popular media, so that's the one they know.

I remember from a first aid class I took back in the mid 90s that the first thing you do with someone choking is to tell him to keep coughing. If it doesn't work, then that's when you spring into action.
