CPR [ Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation ]
Posted 2/18/08 , edited 2/18/08
Scribbles : I searched and I saw ' Do Not Resuscitate ' and other random discussions like ' hold you wee for a wii ' . If this is a duplicate , feel free to report so a mod could lock it . ^-^

Does anyone know how to perform CPR ?
Has anyone done CPR to a family member , friend or stranger ?
Do you have funny stories involving CPR ?

I just want to know how likely it is for a person who knows how to perform CPR on someone else will use it .

I don't know how to perform CPR but I remember this one time, my friend saved this kid. And did CPR on him and he said "That was awesome." Lol, weird.

Yes I know how to perform CPR. I'm a trained lifeguard. Though I've never actually had to use it before.

No i do not know CPR. i feel so useless not knowing how to do it.
I don't think i know anyone in my family whose done it.

Wait actually i do. my cousins and I were swimming in a cruise line. this girl had drown so my cousin saved her. while me and my other cousins were crowding over her and watching my cousin do CRP. i was like "hey maybe shes faking to get a kiss from you" my cousin is like "shut up you don't even know how to do CRP fatass."

another story with my cousin. my cousin saw this hot life guard so hes like hey watch my stuff i'm gonna fake drown. i'm like ur such a dumbass. so he did fake drown but instead of the girl saving her it was a dude and like when the dude was about to do CPR my cousin just sprang up and said i'm good.

I learned first aid through the St Johns agency when i was younger, so CPR was probably one of the things i learned along with basic math ^^ It's a good thing to know, never had to use it so far which is nice however.

Some of the bandaging and dealing with serious wounds I've had to use though =/ Go go St Johns youth brigade ^^

Yup i know, but never had to use it.
Hope never have to either- also I've been taught that unless you have a face mask chest compressions is enough so sorry if you ever need it and i'm around no mouth to mouth.

yep but I've never had to use it.

my mom's a doctor and she knows how to do it.

ABC's. You gotta check their airway, breathing, and circulation. Tilt their head back and observe for any objects that might have been obstructing their airways. Next, put your cheek against their nostril and see if you can feel them exhaling. Check their jugular pulse (neck vein) and then you call or tell someone for help. "Hey you! Call 911 and get a crash cart!" I think you give them two assisting breathes and 30 thrusts? Haha.. Don't remember.. But yea, sometimes you break their sternum trying to do CPR.
