Ive done CPR many time on real patients you will almost always break a rib
Breaking a rib is minor compared to dying of an infarction
So have I, work on an ambulance full time, hospital part. I've seen plenty of newbys to CPR try purposely to break ribs because someone told them they have to.
Then they need to retake anatomy
Amd should be fired
Or, we could teach them the depth without saying "if you don't break ribs, you're not doing it right". It leads to pigeon religion like when people put a spoon in a seizing persons mouth.
Literally everytime I see a code, someone is doing CPR atrociously wrong. That's the reason I brought it up. It is the most basic thing, and it's usually done wrong.
ABC for a regular code, CAB for trauma.
Honestly though, if you are a bystander doing CPR, just open the airway with a head tilt (if no signs of spinal trauma), make sure someone calls 911, and do the chest compressions. If you get an assistant, you can worry about the rescue breaths, but building up blood pressure, and keeping it circulating is more important.
@everyone Did anyone talk to the guys we used home remedies for pepper spray on? Did anything seem to work more than just water and air?
Data shows most important things to surviving arrest is quality compressions and how quickly someone can be cardioverted
If someone goes down, start compressions and get AED asap.
My only concern with the milk is if we are out in the heat, not sure someone would like stinky hot milk on their face.
1:3 baby soap to water in a spray bottle. Scrub scrub scrub. Then 1:1 maalox to water in a spray bottle. Make sure to get both the soap mixture and maalox in the patient's eyes. Rise with water good. Repeat the process. Don't use milk. That's gross
^ this is a Richard Spencer approved method, btw. Got to test it on him a couple times
@ErikaI saw you using it, i was using just normal saline for an eye flush which didn't seem to help much.
OC spray is oil based. Milk. Water. Saline. Etc. won't do anything to strip away the oil. Stripping away the oil is something that needs to happen before you can neutralize the capsaicin.
Baked A. Freaked when I gave him my baby shampoo and water solution.
Richard. McLaren. Freiberg. Ajax. And several others all said my method for neutralizing OC spray worked wonders. Richard also shouted out my efforts on the latest Shoah. I'm now known as the "guardian angel" lol
@Havamal baked got a totally different level of pepper spray than what I treated.
Was it even pepper spray or some type of acid?
He received something at ultra high pressure. It's possible it was bear mace, or it could have been draino
I talked to Baked. It was apparently something called class 4 bear mace. Nasty stuff.
I though bear mace was weaker?
Which sounds odd but I swear I've read it in multiple places
It is weaker.
But if you get anything shot into your eyes at high pressure at close range, eye damage is a distinct possibility.
Especially considering bear mace often times has a shot distance of 30 feet
Good deal, i had heard online that everything was kind of just placebo effect. I didn't really believe that because i would think removing the agent would help.
@Deleted User I had two hypoglycemia cases to work with. The majority of what I dealt with was pepper spray.
@Deleted User was happy to be of service. I felt bad for the entire VIP crowd and you PSDs. Y'all got it rough and the corrupt police didn't do a damn thing.
I had multiple facial lacerations acid attacks oven cleaner attacks and cracked skulls
I treated about 15 people
I was also in the park till the very end i treated a few wounded at mc intryw as well
