PostSubject: Continuous Chest Compression CPR   Wed Feb 15, 2012 11:59 am

Doctors at the Sarver Heart Center at the University of Arizona have developed a new CPR method for sudden cardiac arrest that only calls for chest compressions, and no rescue breathing. They claim it is more effective, and that it is easier and more likely that people will use it, as it doesn't require mouth contact. It does require 100 compressions per minute, so be sure you don't suffer a cardiac arrest while doing it. I don't have a link, but you can check it out at the U of A website. I'd be especially interested to hear opinions of this method from our EMS members.

Beats me, but I know rescue breathing has been out for a little while. I'm in the middle of some CERT classes -- they do first aid, but skip CPR entirely.

When I did my First aid/CPR trainer recert they were saying 120 compressions per minute. They also said just to tell students to "push hard and push fast" and to just make sure they were going fast enough.

It's rather a common sense thing once you really consider it:

You can't force the alveoli to filter oxygen by pushing on someone's chest.

A breath can be a quick way to see if the airway is clear, which could either be the cause of the situation, or be a problem once the person's heart begins to beat on their own.

However, if you're going to do the compressions, knowing there's an obstruction shouldn't even be an issue: regardless if there is something, the answer for it is still compressions.

I don't have a lot of time to type out the details.

So, here is the short:



It doesn't matter if you get air into them and it doesn't circulate.



That heart needs to pump to the brain.



Pump at the pace of the song,

"Stayin' Alive"..."ahahahah, stayin' alive- stayin' alive"





One teacher told us that it's like getting a windex bottle to start sparying.



You have to pump that thing a few times

I've heard of the mouty to mouth thing being discouraged for a while now. Like this video that's been on recently: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Definitely. Though I'll add that simply having one isn't enough, you need to know how to use it.

yupyup, ...do not use backwards! I have to re-up my cert every year or two years ( since 1992 ).

ONLY ONE teacher has made us do the actions for more than one minute.

I'm in good shape but it was HARD work!!!
