Thanks for that post. It was extremely informative, especially for our crowd who are just about all good candidates for this method.
The 100+ beats per minute vs. 16 beats & breathe/16 & breathe makes a lot of sense. If somebody's heart is going to restart, that shouldn't interrupt the process, and if it hasn't stopped- likewise, they should wake up & perhaps request that you stop. Tough to diagnose respiratory failure (the only instance mentioned where this wouldn't be "appropriate," but if that's true this is still better than nothing while waiting on 911 response. The other non-apropos condition is drowning, which requires expulsion of fluid from the lungs and assisted breathing for recovery; pretty easy to diagnose drowning most of the time. Also easy to diagnose whether one of us is a child under 8, or just acting like a child under 8.
Really good post, thanks again.
