ACTUALLY MOUTH-TO-MOUTH RESUSCITATION IS WHAT’S OUT, BUT THAT’S NOT OUR POINT

FITSNews – March 16, 2007 – According to a new Japanese study, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is much more effective if rescuers focus on chest compression over mouth-to-mouth ventilation. Of course, the study’s results did nothing to reduce the number of men who fantasize about performing both life-saving techniques on Angelina Jolie, but they did include some shocking revelations about Japanese culture. From Web MD‘s coverage:

More than 70 percent of the time, the bystanders did nothing when a person suddenly collapsed. Those victims were less likely to survive, and more likely to have brain damage if they did survive, than when bystanders tried to do something.

You’ve got to be kidding. Seven out of ten times nobody did anything when a person collapsed? Talk about a dog eat dog country. Or a people eat dog country. Or a people eat fish country. Or a dog eat fish country. Or a … you know what nevermind. Cleary, folks over in the Land of the Rising Sun need a refresher in How To Save A Life.
