Hands Only CPR
September 30, 2013

Several Americans won’t do CPR because they don’t know how or they are afraid of hurting someone. Hands only CPR could give them the courage to help the injured person. Using hands only CPR would be as effective as conventional CPR for sudden cardiac arrest at home, in public or at work. It can double or maybe triple a person’s chance of survival.
There are only two steps to using hands only CPR. Call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest. It is very important that you first call 911 so emergency medical personal can reach the injured person and then continue chest compressions. All of the videos showed how to perform hands on CPR clearly. Hands only CPR is different than conventional CPR in that hands only CPR only have two step. Conventional CPR you check for a pulse, call 911, give two breaths, use 30 compressions and then give another two breaths and so on until emergency personal arrive. I believe it would be very effective and would use it if I had too. All the videos were good, educational and funny. Ken Jeong is a funny person and doing the chest compression to the beat of Staying Alive is also a good idea. I liked the Undeading video the most. I usually don’t like to watch scary movies but this was alright. Heart and stroke fdn has a great imagination and I will try to find more of the work. I would have never thought of using zombie’s to promote CPR. If I were in Walmart and someone collapsed I would step up and perform CPR. I do believe hands on CPR would be effective if I didn’t have protective barriers. In some cases though doing the whole process of CPR would be better. If you have two people and someone could get the equipment fast enough. Also, you may need to use the defibrillator. So in my case I would have to say it would depend on the situation. I…...

How to Perform Cpr

...Ashley Avilez English 6/19/13 CPR for the Average Joe What would you do if you see someone having hard time breathing or someone who just collapsed? Would you be prepared? Any human being is capable of performing CPR, which obviously sounds a bit frightening but these following steps; which are call 911, pump the chest, and give two breaths will help ease you through this challenging process. As a Certified Healthcare Provider I have practiced CPR plenty of times and can tell you it’s not easy but as they say “practice makes perfect”. First step, you must see if the victim is unresponsive, if the person does not respond and is not breathing or breathing properly then you must quickly call 911 and get back to the unconscious/conscious person. If the victim is responsive let them know you are here to help and ask if they want help. If they refuse help, leave them alone but stay close until further authorities arrive. When this first step is all fully completed continue to the second step; chest compressions. Second step requires some muscle power. When the victim gives you the okay, you need to start chest compressions. Chest compressions will help the heart get a jump start. If the victim starts gasping this means you are doing a great job, keep going. Start the compressions in the center of the chest approximately two inches in depth about a hundred compressions per minute very quickly and swiftly. According to the American Heart Association you must complete five......

Tqm & Cpr

...Management (TQM) and Core Process Re-engineering (CPR). TQM and CPR share a cross-functional relationship. Quality specialists tend to focus on incremental change and gradual improvement of processes, while proponents of re-engineering often seek radical redesign and drastic improvement of processes. Quality management often referred to as TQM or continuous improvement, means programs and initiatives, which emphasize incremental improvement in work processes, and outputs over an open-ended period of time. In contrast, reengineering, also known as business process redesign or process innovation, refers to prudent initiatives intended to achieve radically redesigned and improved work processes in a specific time frame. In contrast to continuous improvement, CPR relies on a different school of thought. The extreme difference between continuous process improvement and core process reengineering lies in where the start from and also the magnitude and rate of resulting changes. In course of time, many derivatives of radical, breakthrough improvement and continuous improvement have emerged to address the difficulties of implementing major changes in corporations. Core Process Reengineering Core Process Reengineering (CPR) has been receiving attention from industries as well as the academic community, because it is likely to change management practice and working processes in organizations in the future. However it is commonly agreed that CPR is important but also......

You’ll be able to bring the drug to market faster and cheaper, which will be good for AH Biotech’s employees and investors and good for the millions of people who suffer from anxiety attacks. I don’t agree with this option because even it is good for AH biotech Company, but for those how are in Albania suffering from anxiety attacks will stop there free treatment and cannot afford after marketing the Drug and it will be difficult for them to buy it as they are poor people. 2. Do the clinical trials in the United States. Even though it will certainly be more expensive and time-consuming, you’ll feel as if you’re living up to the part of the Hippocratic Oath that instructed you to “prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.” In my view this is the best option for hassan, even though it is expensive to conduct the tests in the US, because the based clinical studies are far more stronger and in turn will give the company higher returns in the future, also the patients in the US can afford the treatment after the initial free doses are given by the investigators because of the insurance system in place. 3.

Philosopy 210 Essay

...Essay PHIL 201 July 7, 2014 Essay After reading these pieces I concluded that the central theme is being awaken from a false reality but each piece differs in the action that follow the awakening. The Matrix is set in a futuristic setting, where the theory of being controlled by a massive computer is a real possibility. What I find most interesting is that Plato actually describes the concept of The Matrix, almost as if Plato’s dialogue was used an inspiration. In The Matrix and Plato’s dialogue, humans are not physically living the life they perceive as “real” but are stationary beings who are forced to live a false reality prescribe to them. This is where René Descartes’ excerpt differs from the previously mentioned. The person is aware of possibility that what he knows as true could be false, that how could we know if what we are living is done consciously or if our existence is but a dream. All of the excerpts also rely on the reasoning that the mind is the sole contributor of our existence and our physical senses only respond to what the mind knows. The differences in the readings is based on the actions or possible outcomes that occur once the awakening has taken place. In The Matrix, Neo decides to act and decides to embark on a journey to discover reality not being controlled by a computer. Plato’s dialogue is different because this is based on a hypothetically theory, so while there is no physically action the questions lies in how would people respond to...

Hands Only Cpr

...In Pre-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Patients, How Does Hands-Only CPR Compared To Standard CPR, Affect Neurological Outcomes? Abstract Summary Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the U.S. Increasing bystander-initiated CPR through “hands-only” CPR and EMS dispatcher instructed “hands-only” CPR improves survival rates. Methods CINAHL, PubMed, and OvidMD were searched for the following key terms or combination thereof: “hands-only”; “compression-only”; chest compression-only”; “bystander”; “CPR”; “dispatcher”; and “neurological affect”. We initially restricted our search to peer-reviewed studies published in English between January 2004 and June 2014, but agreed by consensus to use a 2000 study located during a manual search of included study references. Results We identified nine Level II, III, and IV studies comparing “hands-only” CPR and “standard” CPR, published between 2000 and 2013, and occurring in the countries of Japan, London, Sweden and the U.S. All but one of the study results recommend that “hands-only” CPR is at least equal or superior to “standard” CPR. Conclusions Guidelines should be established to teach bystander “hands-only” CPR nationwide, to increase public awareness of the effectiveness of “hands-only” CPR and start to teach out-of-hospital “hands-only” CPR. Introduction Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States (Neumar, Barnhart, Berg, Chan, Geocadin, Luepker,… Nichol, 2011). ......

What Is Cpr?

...What is CPR? CPR stands for CardioPulmonary Resuscitation i.e. to help restart the heart (pulse) and lungs (breathing).   When do we perform CPR? CPR is performed when a person stops breathing and/or the heart stops.   Why is it important to learn CPR? Every year about 350,000 people suffer cardiac arrest i.e. their heart stops. Sudden cardiac death is the most common cause of death in United States and Canada. If you know how to perform CPR you may be able to save a life. Why timing is important? When the heart (pulse) and lung (breathing) stops, the victim has 5 minutes before (gradual) brain death starts to occur, if no CPR is performed. Therefore, it is very important to start CPR as soon as possible.   What is Hands-only CPR? Any bystander who is not trained in CPR can perform this type of CPR to try to save a life. Hand-only CPR is better than no CPR. If you witnessed an adult or a child/infant who suddenly collapses then: 1. Call EMS / 911 2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest | | Anatomy of Heart and Lungs 1. Heart  The heart beats continuously to pump blood to all parts of the body. It has four chambers: Right and left atrium and ventricles.  Blood flows from the right side of the heart to the left side. The heart is connected to blood vessels (arteries and veins) which combined make up the circulatory system.   2. Lungs Each person has two lungs underneath the ribcage: One on the left side and the one on the right. Its main......

To Perform Cpr or Not

...On February 26, 2013, Lorraine Bayless died at Glenwood Gardens after a nurse refused to give her CPR. Glenwood Gardens is an independent senior living facility. During the 911 call, there is a constant request from the operator to provide care to Bayless, but the caller said it was against her job policy to perform CPR. Jeffrey Toomer, the Executive Director at Glenwood Gardens, was quoted saying, “In the event of a health emergency at this independent living community our practice is to immediately call emergency medical personnel for assistance and to wait with the individual needing attention until such personnel arrives. That is the protocol we followed.” Following the incident, there was uproar by concerned citizens, medical professionals and ethicists. Someone argued that Glenwood Gardens acted ethically and others felt differently. Ethics are the principles that dictate ones morals. There are always arguments to both sides of issues that can convince right or wrong. This incident has raised legal, professional, and ethical considerations as to what was the correct way to handle the situation. There were two videos that were watched in class that portray very different moods to the situation. The CBS Los Angeles video called, “Staff At Senior Living Home Refuses to Perform CPR on Dying Woman” takes a very aggressive approach to contradict what Glenwood Gardens did. They even went as far as to interview Dr. Thomas Horowitz, MD. Horowitz is a medical......

Cpr Alternative Assessment

...CPR Alternate Assessment Can you save a life? In an emergency, when every second is critical, would you know what to do? According to recent statistics sudden cardiac arrest is rapidly becoming the leading cause of death in America. Once the heart ceases to function, a healthy human brain may survive without oxygen for up to 4 minutes without suffering any permanent damage. Unfortunately, a typical EMS response may take 6, 8 or even 10 minutes. Performing CPR dramatically increases the survival chance while a person awaits the arrival of EMS. CPR helps keep blood flow to the brain and heart and can be the crucial action that keeps a person alive. The skills needed to perform CPR can be learned by everyone.

Cpr Steps

...coughing, or not breathing normally you should call 911 and return to the victim. In most locations the emergency dispatcher can help you if you have no prior CPR training. You will begin with chest compressions, pushing down in the center of the chest 2 inches 30 times. You want to pump hard and fast at a rate of at least 100/minute. Next you will want to clear their passageway by lifting the chin and tilting their head back, then you will pinch their nose cover their mouth with yours and blow until you see the chest rise. Two breaths are all you need and then you will continue the 30 chest compressions and 2 breaths until help arrives. CPR with children compared to with adults they are very similar they have the same compression to ventilation ratio 30:2. If the victim is in between the age of 1-8 you want to use the heel of one or two hands for chest compressions. Pushing in the center of the chest near the sternum about 2 inches at the rate of 100/minute. Next you want to tilt the head back and listen for breathing if they are not breathing normally, pinch their nose cover your mouth with theirs and blow until you see their chest rise, each breath should only take 1 second each. If you are alone with the child give 2 minutes of CPR before calling 911. Just like with children you will have to perform 2 minutes of CPR before calling 911. First you want to see if the baby is breathing normally, or being responsive so patting the chest and feet if you get nothing you want......

Cardio Cpr

...CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION * Collapses * Becomes unresponsive 1. Check Responsiveness * Tap the person's shoulder and shout, "Are you OK?" * Look for normal breathing. Call 911 if there is no response. * Start Hands-Only CPR. * Hands-Only CPR should not be used for adults whose cardiac arrest is due to drug overdose, near-drowning, or an unwitnessed cardiac arrest. In these cases, do a conventional CPR combination of chest compressions and rescue breathing. 2. Do Chest Compressions * Place the heel of your hand on the center of the person's chest. * Place the heel of your other hand on top of your first hand, lacing fingers together. * Keep arms straight and your shoulders directly over your hands. * Push hard and fast, compressing chest at least 2 inches. * Let chest rise completely before pushing down again. * Compress at least 100 times per minute. 3. Stop Only if: * The person starts breathing normally * A trained responder or emergency help takes over * You are too exhausted to continue * There is an automated external defibrillator (AED) to use 4.

In accordance with Federal Law, the Patient Self- Determination Act provides every competent adult and emancipated minor are to be informed that they have the right to decide their own decision on what medical care or treatment they accept, reject, or discontinue. The effect of the Patient Self-Determination Act has given each patient the right to choose what is best for them upon their beliefs. And the advance directives protect their rights when making these decisions. The act also protects the health care institutions when the agency has to decide what is best for the patient as well. Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, a draft for a durable power of attorney will be written in case the patient becomes mentally incapacitated; this is a document appointing an agent to act for a patient in the event of incompetence and will take effect immediately.
