    Ever since I licked that toaster I don't mess with electricity.

    Ask my owner what happened when he tried to put fence shock collar on me ...

    .. serves him right.

    good to know
    thanks

    I actually didn't see that he stayed down, didn't finish video till I read your post

    Glad he came back...Helluva Jolt

    Do not stop CPR until what? How is the irregular heartbeat remedied?

    The average layman should never stop. Keep doing it while someone calls 911 and do not stop until somebody takes over. They have a high chance of coming back And I wouldn't feel comfortable with anybody other than a doc calling it off.

    I'm being a little bit hyperbolic. Lightning can cause burn and ischemia to any organ. This includes the heart. But very often the heart The heart is not injured, But instead the pacemaker cells and their respective conductive pathways have been knocked out of a fine tuned rhythm. If that's the case, chest compressions will jump start the heart and the pacemaker will take back over beating again.

    This is very different for somebody who had a heart attack in which the cardiac tissue itself may be nonviable.

    Until the ambulance shows up. Keep the blood pumping. The last CPR class I went to said to pump along with the beat to the song Staying Alive. Which is fast - so be prepared to switch with someone when you get tired.

    I think you do the breathing every 30 seconds or so. It's nowhere near as often as you see on TV, and the chest compressions are way more important.

    I've been renewing my CPR classes for about 20 years. Every time I go something changes in the method - which I always find funny because the human body hasn't changed at all. It's possible we're getting smarter about keeping a person from flatlining, but part of me thinks the changes are driven by lawsuit prevention.
