Should EVERYONE have CPR training?

If you watched today's episode of ABC's "The View", with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselbeck, you probably saw the part regarding adoption. In the discussion, the guest host was explaining the process for adoption in California. He mentioned that the adoption program requires the parents to be CPR certified. This is true of foster parents in most U.S. states. View co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck even mentioned that she should get CPR training. This could not be more true. ALL of us, people who have children or work with children especially, but EVERYONE should at least have CPR training.

Mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing has a long safety record for
victims and rescuers.  But fear of infectious diseases causes some
to be reluctant to give mouth-to-mouth rescue breaths to strangers.
To avoid the chance that the victim will not receive any care,
compression-only CPR can be considered in these circumstances:
  • Rescuer is unwilling or unable to perform mouth-to-mouth 
  • rescue breathing.
  • Untrained bystander is following dispatcher-assisted 
  • CPR instructions.

HANDS-ONLY: Bystanders who witness a sudden
cardiac arrest and try CPR can skip the mouth-to-mouth breathing.
The American Heart Association says doing chest compressions
alone is just as good.
WHO'S IT FOR? Any adult who collapses, stops breathing
and is unresponsive. Children and drowning victims still need 
mouth-to-mouth breaths.
WHAT TO DO: First, call 911 or have someone else call.
Then press hard and fast, about 100 times a minute,
on middle of the chest.
