nimrod Posted April 3, 2008 Report Share Posted April 3, 2008 I had heard about this some time back. Looks like it's been endorsed by the American Heart Assoc. Since I'm not crazy about playing sucky-face w/ strangers, you can bet I'll be doin' it to the BeeGees (as described in the first article).Had a friend that recently saw a man go down at an ice rink. She gathered his kids, while two nurses began (mouth to mouth w/ compressions) CPR. Friend got some history by phone and found the guy had Hep C. Although hep C is not supposed to be transmissible in this manor, I'd just as soon not go there... Friend doesn't think he made it.http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/04/01/BAJ8VTF35.DTLhttp://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5hOVUvypBGYgOxkIQz5F4D8XIps0gD8VOO1101http://handsonlycpr.eisenberginc.com/I dunno though - 100 compressions/min might wear you down to a nub pretty quickly. I wonder if it would be considered bad form to have the crowd sing "Stayin' Alive" just to keep you in time. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
