CPR is a lifesaver. I know it helped to save mine.

We were trained in this method two years ago at my company. It should help a lot; the stigma of mouth to mouth has been a problem for some people, but not with this method. And it makes sense; no pulse , well, respiration isn’t going to make matters any better in the short term.

I got this email a few days ago and sent it out. I took CPR and always dreaded the day that would have to give mouth to mouth to a stranger.

My speakers are out so I haven’t had a chance to listen to the video (and I’m sure I’m missing much without hearing the explanation). I thought the original concept of CPR was to keep oxygen going to the brain … no mouth-to-mouth, how is this possible?

There is oxygen in the blood. By continuously doing chest compressions you are constantly sending oxygen to the brain.

I know I promised to ping all of you for only Fair Tax related information. I figure this time is worth the exception. It may save someone’s life.

How amazing. I gather from the video that it even works for people who have been cut in half. And Obama wants to nationalize health care!

I do have another question:

One of the good things about the old method of 15/2 (too breathes and 15 compressions), it gave the single person CPR provider a chance to rest a moment. The most tiring part of CPR is obviously the chest compressions.

Even with the additional adrenalin running though your veins in an emergency situation, how long can you last with continuous compressions. Not arguing with the current (and proven) version of CPR, just wondering?

"There is oxygen in the blood. By continuously doing chest compressions you are constantly sending oxygen to the brain."

I suspect that just the chest compressions probably cause "some" air transfer to/from the lungs also. I mean you "are" compressing and releasing the chest cavity.

Especially when you consider that when you start CPR the stranger is already dead.

One day we were stopped in traffic and a bum/street person, what ever you want to call them, had passed out in the gutter. I had just taken the CPR course and I was contemplating my new found skill.......when the ambulance arrived. Wow! Saved! (I mean me LOL!)

Remember the Cambridge policeman who Obama said “acted stupidly” - he gave mouth to mouth to Reggie Lewis the Celtics player who collapsed during practice. I know I’d have a hard time doing mouth to mouth on a stranger. brrr...

I’ve been trained and wouldn’t have figured that to be safe and healthy for the victim at the time of training. Since it’s coming from the Mayo Clinic though, they certainly do have some clout behind them.

I figure the reason for mouth-to-mouth was to continue to put air into the lungs, and keep whatever amount of oxygen that's in your exhaled breath flowing throughout the victim's blood.

Note the date on the video, June 2008. This is not brand new information.

I had heard about changes to CPR guidelines several years ago, mainly that paramedics were doing the new method, and that CPR classes had changed. I had also heard about the faster, harder compressions.

This video explains why they made the change. I had heard there was enough oxygen in the blood, I had not realized the issue with breaking to do mouth to mouth caused all of the compression work to be lost.

Somebody suggested if you are doing compressions like this, you are probably aspirating the lungs. I suspect that is true, especially with 2-inch compressions. That should force a lot of air out of the lungs, and naturally draw some in. How much oxygen in in an exhaled breath, provided a few times a minute, compared to 100 shallow passive breaths of ambient air caused by this method? It is probably a wash.

Thanks for posting this incredible link.

This is the new gold standard for CPR. It is safe for the person receiving the new CPR and safe//simple/easy for those giving it as there is no mouth to mouth action needed.

I have sent this link to our friends and neighbors.

Simple enough. Didn’t say anything about clearing the
airway to start though.

Knowing this and other simple first aid procedures
such as the symptoms of stroke could save a life.

Who knows, it might be your own.

Thanx for the ping nutmeg.

One note I would add. My wife gave CPR to a very old lady who collapsed at the checkout counter of a store. [Must have seen the sales tax!] I remember my wife and I looking at one another because we both thought she had died. Her eyes were wide open, but nobody was home, so to speak. Since I am only the sugar daddy, it was left to my wife, who was an ICU nurse and very familiar with giving CPR, to administer the procedure. When my wife gave the first breath, the little old lady immediately regained consciousness. Had we used the new procedure with the emphasis on aggressive pressing of the chest, that lady may have ended up with some broken ribs instead of just a mouthful of someone else's air.

Every situation is different, but don't rule out the possibility of a little mouth to mouth on occasion.
