Prolonged CPR: Why It Sometimes Works

A recent study on longer CPR attempts, conducted in hundreds of hospitals, demonstrates that the patient’s chances of surviving rise if medical teams continue CPR just nine minutes longer than the average time.
Public CPR Training Kiosks: Good Idea for CPR?
Did you know that you can learn CPR from a training Kiosk? AHA CPR training kiosks offers fast, one-minute training sessions in hands-only CPR. The kiosks play a short video with instructions and a 30-second test that evaluates test-takers on the rate and depth of their compressions.
Should Rescue Breathing Be Made Redundant?
In 2008, the American Heart Association released new recommendations that bystanders who feel uncomfortable with performing mouth-to-mouth CPR instead perform a form of “hands-only” CPR that does not include the rescue breathing component.
The Difference Between CPR - and Lifesaving CPR
As important as CPR is in saving lives, it’s not always successful. In fact, many doctors report that they remember every patient who leaves their hospital or practice alive after receiving CPR - because the rates of success are so low.
