    Default 999 what's your emergency omg

    Just watched it OMG very touching in tonight's episode heartbreaking to listen to the calls and that man who done them hoax calls makes you sick truly sick ! Glad he got caught one think I just want advice on is - there was a man unconscious and the old dear went straight into chest compressions she did not do any rescue breaths I got told to go straight in 30 chest compressions 2 rescue breaths ?


    Anyhow I think we have wonderful emergency services including all fire ambulance and police well done guys

    Watched it last night too. I would jail every single person who tied up the emergency services with hoax calls. Id also allow the emergency services to black list these people from being allowed the services of the emergency services.
    No need for rescue breaths anymore, straight to compression's, you not seen the Vinny Jones tv advert? It changes ever time I go for my Emergency aid training anyway, heck it may already have changed again.

    Taken from the Brittish Heart Foundation's site......

    "Why are you advocating Hands-only CPR when you show how to give rescue breaths on Heartstart courses?
    There are appalling survival rates from out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK. Less than 10 per cent of casualties survive to leave hospital, and yet many cardiac arrests are witnessed by members of the public. We have to try and improve those survival rates while facing the reality that most people don’t know how to give cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
    Research shows people are more likely to start CPR if they only have to carry out Hands-only CPR on a casualty. CPR with rescue breaths should remain the gold standard but if someone is untrained, or unsure about how to give rescue breaths and chest compressions, Hands-only CPR is still more likely to increase a casualty’s chance of survival.
    So if you’ve been trained in CPR, including rescue breaths, and feel confident using your skills, you should still give chest compressions with rescue breaths."

    Always start with compressions then breaths but the majority of people that survive is very low. I have been a trained first aider for the past 20 years and it changes so much everyone forgets what they are meant to do!
