Continuous Chest Compression CPR
Arizona Health Science Center ^ | Feb. 4, 2013 | Learn Sarver Heart Centerís

Posted on 02/05/2013 7:14:06 AM PST by Tugo

Sarver Heart Center’s newest video makes it easy to learn Continuous Chest Compression CPR. Every three days, more Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest than the number who died in the 9-11 attacks. You can lessen this recurring loss by learning this hands-only CPR method that doubles a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest. Watch physician researchers Gordon A. Ewy, MD, and Karl Kern, MD, demonstrate the easy, life-saving method that they developed at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

Everyone should see this. Easier that traditional CPR.

This no-breaths protocol is new. Not sure if the Red Cross will do away with their 30 compressions to 2 breaths ratio they currently teach, but the docs here are right. Its better for most lay people in this situation to just pump away until medics arrive. And so true about the 100 bpm compression rate being easier with music cues ... I hate disco so for me its Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”. But the BeeGee’s “Stayin’ Alive” might be more appropriate for the circumstances.

Good video. The one thing they should have added is that in addition to having someone call 911, someone should see if there is an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) nearby.

Many public places now have them, and the instructions for using them are super easy so even someone not trained can use one to help save a life. The CPR can continue while the AED is being set up, and only stopped when (and if) the AED says to press the button to deliver a shock to the victim.

Also, if you don’t like disco, you can do CPR to the beat of “Another One Bites the Dust.” Just don’t sing it out loud!

Successfully performed CPR on my Boxer whose heart stopped in mid-air jumping. Blew up her snout and pumped her chest. Revived her praising God. Second time was not successful.

Life saving is a gift and blessing.

I'm not sure the date but I believe the no-breaths is a couple of years old. Note the no-breaths is not for infants or drowning victims.

Interesting - you don’t even check for a pulse. Hope people don’t start cracking ribs for someone who has just fainted.

Thanks for posting the info.

You don’t check for pulse anymore because so many people do it wrong. Instead, they teach you to check for “signs of life”, shake them, look for any type of movement, ask if they can hear you, etc.

IIRC, the beat to Highway to Hell works too.

Good point on the fainting. The knuckles to the chest bone, or a pinch to the ear using the tip of the index finger and the knuckle just back from the thumbnail are both a good reviver (works with passed out drunks).
