Two Person CPR





CPR skills feeling a little dull? Sharpen up here.
Here's some decent, even excellent video's for review. You can get a great 25 minute rehash
of the entire process form one person CPR to a full ACLS Megacode. The longest any single
video lasts is about 8 minutes.

Here's a slightly different delivery of One Person CPR with a helper that transitions
into Two Person CPR. (You'll read "10 ventilations per minute" at one point in the video
but that's the European recommendation. American Heart Association recommendation
works out to 6 - 8 respirations per minute. There's slight differences in how much shocking
power is used and flushing boluses but that aside, what's interesting about the video is
how smooth these two rescuers work together. All in all the European approach is nearly
identical to the AMAs. Some good music too :-)

Continuous Chest Compressions: the way it is now taught
for non-medical people. The instruction emphasizes compressions over any rescue
breathing until CPR / ACLS qualified providers arrive (video of Mayo training team):

Here's an ACLS Megacode performed in Pakistan - see if you can't quiz yourself for
each step of the code (watch in particular chest compressions and breathing -- is there
anything you might do differently? Exactly the same?):.
