New Guidelines for CPR and Cardiac Arrest

0

In response to the overwhelming number of cases where CPR is performed incorrectly, the American Heart Association (AHA) has recently revised its guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and cardiac arrest published in the August 22nd issue of Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. Studies show that people who perform CPR are inaccurate about the presence of a pulse in 35 percent of CPR attempts. This miscalculation has contributed to the low percentage of successful CPR attempts. Among the estimated 225,000 cases of sudden cardiac arrest that occur outside of a hospital setting in the U.S., only 5 percent of people survive. Read more »

Andrew Weil Is In Is He Also Far-Out

The Oct. 11, 1999, issue of Archives of Internal Medicine featured a transcript of a debate between Andrew Weil, M.D. — perhaps the leading popularizer of “natural medicine” in the United States — and Dr. Arnold Relman.

Impoved Health or Impaired Hearing

0

Exposure to loud, distracting and possibly hazardous sound is a common experience for everyone. Whether to expose oneself to potentially hazardous noise is a personal choice. Personal portable stereo equipment exemplifies this choice.

Immunity Challenge

0

Mr. Probst explains how this challenge is also geared towards creating a bit of antagonism between the survivors. “Helen, I understand that there’s a sea creature trying to eat you. Will this affect anyone’s play during this challenge?”

“Well, I ain’t never seen no sea creature eat a human before,” smiles Clay.

“Me, neither,” says Jan. “How about we eliminate everyone but Helen so she wins immunity so she stays on this island longer so maybe we can watch her get eaten.”

Penny thinks about this, “Ok, but I need to make sure all of you realize that Jake and I are not in an alliance. Yes, I know that I should’ve done this before now because surely everyone will see this as a desperate but completely insincere plea to somehow manipulate everyone to think that I am honest and trustworthy.”

Jake giggles, “Hey, that sure is a good idea, Penny. No one will be at all bothered that you decided to throw me out to the lions only after you realize you have no other choice.”

Jake giggles again and thinks, “I may get to stay here longer than I originally thought.”

And this is just what happened during the “snuff the torch” challenge. Penny went straight for Jake’s jugular and every time someone got a correct answer, they snuffed everyone’s torch but Helen’s.
