CONTEXT: Whether to resuscitate extremely premature infants (EPIs) is a clinically and ethically difficult decision to make. Indications and practices vary greatly across different countries and institutions, which suggests that resuscitation decisions may be influenced more by the attitudes of the individual. Science Behind Resuscitation Vic Parwani, MD ED Medical Director Real Life: Nearly Everyone Dies. OHCA survival to hospital discharge by 5-year time periods (n=141,581) Interruptions in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation From Paramedic Endotracheal Intubation (WANG 2009). Challenging issues confront emergency physicians routinely when performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Ethical issues surrounding resuscitation may include issues of futility, withholding or withdrawing interventions, advance directives, family presence, practising procedures on the newly dea. Perception Versus Reality: A Closer Look at the Science and Education of Resuscitation Training Thursday, April 11, 2:00 PM 3:00 PM CT. When you think of resuscitation training in the United States, it’s not uncommon to jump to conclusions, especially in a shifting healthcare environment where regulation and. This was clearly as inappropriate as trying to rush families now but the principle behind both actions was right. Patients need to be aware of what resuscitation really entails.

There is a real need in destroying the myth behind cardiopulmonary resuscitation. People need trustworthy information about short and long term outcomes. The ultimate problem is choice, and only education. Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. Every 12 minutes, someone in this country goes in to cardiac arrest.

That’s nearly 40,000 Canadians. Their survival often depends on bystanders who know cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR. New.

Resuscitation: It’s as old as the healing arts, as new as a drone delivering an automated external defibrillator (AED). And from primitive methods (like whipping an unconscious victim with stinging nettles) to modern-day cardiovascular pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the evolution of resuscitation has been marked by profound. The ability to revive a person from apparent death or unconsciousness is a commendable attainment.

Resuscitation steps are often the last hope for casualties suffering from cardiopulmonary arrest related to the heart and/or lungs. Resuscitation isn’t a miracle cure for all unconscious patients, but in some cases.

The relative ineffectiveness of CPR reflects the inappropriate widespread use of resuscitation efforts in situations in which multiple preexisting chronic illnesses have led to an irreversible state and death is inevitable.

  • Sorry, but this is not Virtual Reality. It’s not even 360 or 180 video. It’s a video animation. Please don’t label something as VR if it isn’t!

  • I want to be a nurse but I don’t want to have to know that someone I’m trying to save just passed. I would have PTSD for the rest of my life

  • It makes sense to have DNR orders in some cases but I think this is rather misleading. If someone is in a shockable cardiac rhythm it’s pretty unlikely they will be able to feel pain. The reason to decide not to perform resuscitation is not about pain due to resuscitation itself it’s about the suffering which could come after that and the futility of prolonging life for only a few days.

  • I worked for a supply chain in a hospital. Trauma workers deserve a world of respect. They’re super well trained and work their minds in a way most cant do.

  • An AED does not start a stopped heart. It is used when the heart is defibrillating. Meaning beating erratically and not holding a steady Rhythm. The shock then stops the heart causing it to hopefully reset and start beating normally.

  • Im about to google how does CPR work today then your video came out. Like, how does blowing air into someone’s mouth could prevent the brain from dying(this is what ive been taught)

  • An object search and a “mouth sweep” should be done PRIOR to giving ANY rescue breaths! Giving rescue breaths to a person who is choking could cause the object to become lodged further down the throat making it much harder to get it dislodged using the Heimlich maneuver..ESSENTIALLY with children/infats!! Thank u for posting the life saving information! ��

  • Earler i woke up and my mother was unresposive and was not breathing she was in here bed and i called 911 and i preformed CPR on her this is not a joke. She is still under care.

  • It’s weird because in this they are good, but this ER sucks so bad in general it’s unreal. Patients have died in the waiting room when they should have been triaged higher, since the 80’s. And stay away from their midwives!

  • That nurse doing the CPR has true passion for her career and love for her patients… This team is absolutely incredible the way they kept calm and were so ready, moving in unison. So much respect for our healthcare workers around the world who really are true heroes in such terrifying situations.

  • Well about removing something someone is chocking on.. it’s complicated because you could potentially push it further down and do more damage

  • Sooo many people, but the only one doing something was the chick on top…amazing just watching her on top while transferring the guy in…amazing

  • I remember the first time I did CPR as a 3rd year medical student they gave us stairs to climb up on to do chest compressions and I thought it was wild! This nurse was not playing around!

  • If you’ve started CPR you should just keep going even if you see “signs of life.” The casualty may sound or appear to be breathing but that could just be gasps. Unless a paramedic tells you to stop just keep going.

  • Soooo to get a girl to straddle you and violently ride you like a bronco is just to simply stop breathing…ooh and simply turn your heart off…..count me in, will try this at the next school dance.

  • To count the 10 seconds correctly and not be rushed because of the anxious situation, you’ve got to count like this: 1001, 1002, 1003…
    Because when you say ” one thousand one, one thousand two..” it will take about one second to say it and more accurate than saying 1 2 3.

  • Perfect vid only thing at – 6:05 and later you dont want to give the infant or small child a to big of breath. Can be very unsafe from what I’ve heard.

  • Actually I am a school paramedic, and I know cpr out of sleep. No joke. Since 3 years now, one time every month we practice cpr ( of course we practice other things).

  • You can see in his eyes that near death experience look. I’ve been there and anyone who has knows. Wow great work by that team to save him!

  • I know the feeling.. my dad had a heart attack.. everyone jumped to help.. it was like time stopped.. terrifying but I’m so grateful

  • How about doing chest compressions to the beat of this 70s disco hit Staying Alive; by the Bee Gees I hear this is perfect and recommended by the heart association.❤️ You just gotta know the song, and acquaint yourself with the instructional PSA. ( I’m staying alive)!! ��

  • 4:10 Actually this is backward. Before delivering any rescue breaths, you should check and sweep the mouth for any objects or you could just lodge it further with the force of the breath.

    Above all, if you ever find yourself in this type of situation and you need to do anything to save someone’s life, just do chest compressions until help arrives.
    Do not attempt resuscitative breaths unless you have been certified and trained in CPR.

  • I’ve studied CPR and even received a certificate, but I don’t know if I could do it in a real situation. I think I would panic seeing the person in distress.

  • That’s realistic CPR. Ribs get broken sometimes. It’s not gentle. It can be exhausting like an intense workout and take more than one person to keep going. You’re manually pumping a muscle through a cage of bone. Hollywood needs to pay attention to this stuff.

  • I remember taking a two day first aid course, but always been a bit scared what if I did the CPR wrong or the patient ended up not really needing it and I broke their ribs for no reason

  • Most people don’t understand that the ribs are gonna break when you do chest compressions, so when they hear a crack they immediately stop

  • It is a job of every doctor…. Every ER staff do this once in his / her life time…. I think they are giving extra credit… They just don’t catch it on camera

  • As an alive human it kinda hurts to see how deep those cpr but if i’m dead, then i would not mind few broken ribs. But my question is,how do you recover from broken ribs?

  • Salem Health…You all saved my life back in 1995 after I had multiple bleeding ulcers in my small intestine. I was involved in a near fatal car accident in 1993 and I’m missing parts of my insides due to the accident. I never really got to say Thank You before I moved to a different state. I’m currently in the process of trying to find as many people as possible who saved my life the night of the accident, as well as those who have continued to help me deal with the health concerns I experience everyday since 1993.

    THANK YOU!!!!!

  • This video is word for word when it comes to actual cpr training. I just did the course and it sounds like they are reading their script out of the book American red cross has you read when earning your actual cpr certification, for all you emt/paramedic enthusiasts

  • Reminds me of something equally scary that happened to my uncle back in 2006 (my final year of High School). One night he woke up and was coughing up blood (obviously a sign that something is very, VERY wrong) so he somehow managed to drive himself to the hospital, and at first the doctors couldn’t figure out what the source of the problem was aside from the fact that his lungs were filling with blood….and I can still remember that when we found out what the real problem was, my blood just ran cold. One of his heart valves had burst, which is what was filling his lungs with blood. He spent about a month in a medically-induced coma as they worked to drain all of that blood from his lungs before he could be taken to surgery to replace the heart valve with a metal one….and when the time came for his surgery they only gave him an optimistic chance of survival at just 40%, and they had a nurse running alongside his gurney literally pounding on his chest just to keep his heart beating. By far the scariest month of my life, not knowing whether I was going to lose my uncle, whether my cousins were going to lose their father, whether my mom & other aunt were going to lose their brother, or whether my grandmother was going to lose her son. Thankfully he beat the odds, and if you met him today you’d never imagine he’d been through something like that.

    I can still remember one day in school while he was still comatose in the hospital, I got called to the office (my dad just wanted to tell me not to stay after school) and my classmates did the classic “Ooooh, what did you do?” line (even though I was the total opposite of a “problem” student, I may not have been a Straight-A student, but I always kept myself out of trouble), to which I very bluntly responded “My uncle is in the hospital, something may have happened to him.” and you could have heard a pin drop from how dead silent it suddenly got in that classroom. I didn’t really have problems with my classmates (I left them alone, and they in turn left me alone), and we were always respectful to each other and had no real trouble getting along since I was always pretty laid-back, even if we weren’t “friends”, so I’m sure that they meant no real harm with the line, but considering the situation my uncle was in I just wasn’t in the mind-set to “mess around” like that at the time.

  • As someone who’s worked in an ED, I can confirm it’s always the tiny nurses who climb on board to do CPR and they always do such a damn good job with it.

  • We are so lucky of our hospital staff,I am so proud of them.doctors and surgical team are trained to a high standard same with the nurses,when the nurses take over then the hard work begins.

  • OMG amazing… And the nurse doing Cpr on the move… Tears in my eyes this could be my father your father, anyone… BRAVO to all of them! ����������❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Thanks. It’s important to have early educated DNAR discussions with patients and their family, especially those whose life expectancy is guarded.

  • One of the first things you’re told when you get certified is that once the heart stops the person is dead like full dead. Cpr is to bring them back to life, press hard and press deep because you can’t hurt a dead person. A live person with broken ribs is better than a dead person.

  • In fact, if you perform it on a little child, then when you blow air in, you have to fill your cheeks with air, and only blow that amount of air. Because if you blow it normally as you would do it on an adult, you could actually rip apart in the child’s lungs if you blow too much.

  • It nice to see the methods of other countries for applying CPR. Some parts are the same what i learned in the Netherlands of CPR. I have a First Aid certificate for adults and children, plus for using a defibrillator. every year i need to do a refresher course to keep my certificate. But i Well tell you what i have leaned. For adults we use both our hand and push 5 to 6 centimeters (1.9 / 2.3 inch) on the chest with 30 compressions and 2 breaths. and call 112 (emergency number in Europe), For children we use one hand and push 4 centimeters (1.5 inch) on the chest, first 5 short breaths (you need to do that fast) and 15 compressions then 2 breaths and again 15 compressions. After that it is the standard CPR, 30 compressions and 2 breaths. For infants we use 2 fingers and follow the rules of the child.
    In the Netherlands we have an app that’s called “hartslag nu” (heatbeat now). This app is linked when you call 112, When a person needs CPR you will get a message with the location and a location to the nearest defibrillator (when you are near in a distant of 3 kilometers (1.8 miles)). It takes 5 to 10 minutes for the ambulance to be at the emergency. So when i get an message i rush to that location and perform CPR before the ambulance is there.
    Note: The app called “Hartslag nu” is in the Netherlands an option to use to help. every person is free to chose this app.

    So i have shared my knowledge how we perform CPR in the Netherlands.
    And if you do not know how to perform CPU follow a course. How more people know how to perform it, the more a person can be saved from a cardiac arrest.

  • I’m actually really glad this just popped up on my recommendedMy mom has really bad COPD and heart issues and she’s stopped breathing on me 4 times now. It’s terrifying. I’ve been able to bring her back but I’m always scared she’s going to go down and not start breathing again on her own. I learned CPR in school but they never taught us how to give breaths. You never know when you may need to use CPR

  • While this video is a bit of an oldie a peace of advice for the comment sectionwhen doing CPR you WILL break ribs when you’re doing it correctly. Breaking the ribs is the ONLY way to be able to compress the heart hard enough to circulate the blood from the heart to around the body. You will be pressing about 2 inches (roughly, depending upon the size of adult) to effectively compress the heart. Don’t worry, broken ribs will heal, a dead person won’t.

  • Watching this in this day and year is crazy to think maybe the virus was already around, just not in the form it is today.
    Random heart attacks, difficulty breathing, etc.

  • If you got a baby you hold them on they’re back, in your no dominant hand
    Putting a baby on the ground and giving them cpr is hella dangerous for their neck
    You need to hold their head stable while giving them cpr

  • Thank you to our medical professionals for all you do, may the lord bless you and keep you, may his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May he turn his face toward you and give you peace. May his favor be upon you, and a thousand generations, and your family, and your children, and their children, Amen

  • I’m glad he’s alright and I’m sorry that he went through this, BUT did anyone else laugh ( just a little ) when the little nurse was riding him giving him CPR, nurses run these hospitals ����❤️����

  • Please DO NOT put your mouth on someone else’s. This is an older method. Use a mouthpiece (you can purchase this at the time you are being CPR certified), if not then continue chest compressions. If the person throws up, they will throw up into your mouth. Also if they have any diseases or anything that is contagious, this is a way in which you can contract it. Current CPR classes inform you to not continue the mouth-to-mouth method. I would definitely give CPR to someone who needs it but unless you are certified, please call 911 to help you through the process of CPR so it is beneficial to the victim/patient.

  • Just remember that stopping before help arrives (very unlikely) due to fatigue and resulting in death or Brian damage can result in a lawsuit

  • Staying alive, nelly the elephant and another one bites the dust all have the correct beats per minute for CPR. Hope none of you will ever need that information ��

  • Do not bend your elbows while compressing, push your body weight thru your arms using your hips, but before starting cpr call for Help and for an AED.

  • Omg the whole team was just on point they were racing him inside and that nurse saved his life definitely 10 times omg they are angels!!!!!:(
