Knowing and understanding CPR


>>>A HEALTH ALERT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO DO IF THERE IS AN INCIDENT AT THE POOL OR WATER. WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO? JOINING US Dr. SMITH, IT CAN HAPPEN IN AN INSTANT. REALLY ANY SUMMER ACTIVITY CAN BE DANGEROUS, KIDS THINK THEY’RE INVINCIBLE. SO AS PARENTS OR JUST PEOPLE WHO MAY BE WATCHING WHAT DO YOU DO IF SOMETHING HAPPEN?>>>FIRST OFF IS PREVENTION IS KEY WITH DROWNING, OBVIOUSLY, NEVER ALLOWING ANY NON-SWIMMING CHILD TO BE OUT OF ARM’S REACH NOT OUT OF ARM’S REACH, FIRST OF ALL. YOUNG KIDS CAN WANDER INTO A POOL, WAND INTERTHE OCEAN AND GET IN ABOVE THEIR HEADS LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY.>>THE MAIN THIN THING IS ENSURING YOUR OWN SAFETY,. SEEK OUT EQUIPMENT AROUND YOU, SEEK OUT LIFEGUARDS AND IF YOU’RE AROUND POOLS A LOT, SEEK OUT WATER TRAINING SAFETY ONCE YOU PULL SOMEONE OUT OF THE WATER YOU MAY NEED TO PERFORM CPR. WE HEAR ABOUT COMPRESSION ONLY CFR, WHEN IT COOLS TO DROWNING WE NEED TO GIVE THE PERSON VENTILATION AND RESCUE BREATH.>>MOUTH TOW MOUTH.>>EXACTLY. IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN AND IT IS BEST TO GET FORMAL TRAINING AND ADDITIONAL TRAYING WITH CPR.>>>WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU’RE AT THE POOL AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU SEE A KID, PULL THEM OUT WHAT DO YOU DO? WE HAVE THE OPROP HERE, THE DUMMY.>>>I’LL DO THE BEST I CAN TO SHOW YOU REAL QUICK. YOU NEED A FORMAL TRAINING. FIRST OFF TAKE THE CHECK THE PERSON, ARE YOU OKAY? ARE YOU AWAKE. NEXT CALL 911. GET SOMEONE TO CALL 911. REALLY NOT MUCH YOU CAN DO FOR TH PATIEN CHEST COMPRESSIONS ABOUT 100 TIMES A MINUTE AND INTERMITTENT BREATHS INTO THE MOUTH. WE SHOULD GET FORMAL TRAINING. THE ONE THING I WANT TO LEAVE WITH EVERYONE, DROWNING IS DIFFERENT FROM CARDIAC ARREST AND OLDER PATIENT WALK DOWN STREET. THIS IS THE REASON THE PERSON’S HEART HAS STOPPED IS BECAUSE A LACK OF OXYGEN.>>I WAS GOING THE ASK WHAT IS THE DEFENDANT ONE, THEY NEED THAT AIR FLOW.>>>THAT IS WHY THE PERSON’S HEART STOPS IN A DROWNING CASE.>>>YOU’RE SAYING TO GET THE FORMAL TRAINING, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE KIDS, IT IS SO IMPORTANT AND YOU MENTIONED KEEPING THOSE KIDS THEY HAVE SO MUCH OUT THERE, THEY HAVE THESE TOYS THAT YOU GET AT THE POOL LIKE MOM MY AND ME SWIMMERS, CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THOSE.>>>THE MAIN THING TO REMEMBER WITH FLOTATIONING DEVICE IT I OFTEN GIVES US A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY. I’VE SEEN PARENTS PUT THEIR KIDS IN A FLOAT AND WALK AWAY. ESPECIALLY IF THEY THINK THERE IS A LIFEGUARD THERE. KEEP THEM IN ARM’S REACH. FLOTATION DEVICES MAY HELP BUT CAN NEVER, EVER, REPLACE HOLDING YOUR CHILD’S HAND OR ARM AND KEEPING IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH THEM.>>THE FIRST STEP, AGAIN, 911.>>A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL RESCUE CAN PROVIDE GOOD CARE AT THE BEACH OR AT THE POOL. BUT DEFINITIVE CARE NEEDS TO BE DONE IN THE AMBULANCE OR EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT.>>>HOW LONG CAN SOMEBODY GO UNCONSCIENCE? IF YOU ARE HESITANT IN? I WOULD JUMP IN AND GIVE MOUTH TO MOUTH WITH A COMPLETE STRANGER, HOW LONG CAN A PERSON GO.>>>UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCEN BETWEEN CARDIAC ARREST OF HEART ATTACK AND DROWN.>>>IF SOMEONE COLLAPSES ON THE STREET FROM A HEART AT TAKE THAT MAY HAVE THREE, FOUR, FIVE MINUTES THAT THEY CAN GO OUT VENTILATION, A DROWNING MEANT THAT IS A SIGN THEY HAVEN’T HAD OX YEN FOROUR, FIVE, SIX MINUTES. ONCE YOU PL THEM OUT THEY’RE ON THE DOWNSLOPE THE DEATH.>>IT IS TRUE THE STAYING ALIVE BEAT.>>>, STAYING ALIVE.>>>IT IS PROBABLY HARD TO IMAGINE THAT WHEN YOU’RE IN A FRANTIC SITUATION.>>WE USE IT EVERY DAY IN THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT.>>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. AND WE HAVE HIT ON VERY IMPORTANT POINTS THIS MORNING. IF YOU MISSED ANY OF THOSE WE’LL
