Topic: Health & Wellness / Mandated CPR On Inmates: Good Or Not So Good?

CPR to inmates….. I spent many years working in ICU & ER and inmate or not, I’m not giving mouth to mouth without protection and I wouldn’t expect anyone else to either. Neither would most of people I have worked with over the years. Personal Protection Equipment first, then rescue attempt. Dirtbag or not, it’s part of my job, but I’m a nurse. The good thing about mandating that everyone learn CPR is that at least everyone has been educated on how to perform it. God forbid if anyone’s friends or family might need it someday. After a victim has stopped breathing, every 1 minute CPR is delayed the victims survival rate is decreased by 10%. While millions of people are saved with CPR. I read somewhere that your chance of surviving cardiac arrest outside a hospital and keep your noggin intact is around 7%…. not very reassuring is it. I totally get the icky factor, and I can understand the compression only idea and I agree that anything is better than nothing. All chest compressions are not created equal, the quality of compressions make a huge difference. Doing CPR is hard, and doing it correctly is even harder. The truth is compressions alone won’t fix dead.
