      But Rock, You've got us looking and learning and as a person with risk factors
      I appreciate the nudge. So no need to apolize in my opinion. Any info we get should
      be examined and researched before we believe. I still haven't read it all or watched the
      slides but I will.

      I hadn’t realized what this was about until seeing the PPS that Yar?Yar! posted….
      Not trying to be a wet blanket, but FYI…
      You can Google this one and find more than you ever wanted to read. There are apparently documented cases in monitored, clinical settings where this may have worked.  Both reference the Criley study mentioned in some of the internet articles. The UK Resuscitation Council states the grim reality:  “The BLS/AED Subcommittee knows of no evidence that, even if a lone patient knew that cardiac arrest had occurred, he or she would be able to maintain sufficient circulation to allow activity, let alone driving to the hospital. “
      Disclaimers:  While I know CPR (I used to be an AHA BLS instructor and have had the misfortune to be in a position to administer it a couple of times), I’m most certainly not a doctor, nor an expert on the subject.  YMMV.  Don’t read this while operating heavy machinery, etc.

      I have dropped the slide show into JPGs if you want to see them.  They are at http://timebender. com/heart if you are interested, as well as a clean powerpoint slideshow.  Right-click and save if you want the powerpoint slide.

      We won't tell. Get more on shows you hate to love
