A friend sent this link to me. Thought it might be good to share. If you are ever in a position to help someone who is having a heart attack, this is good to know. :)

Makes very good sense, and as they say: more first encounter people will follow through....no swapping spit.

I'm certified and I love my fellow man, BUT....! This is going to save lives for sure.

Makes sense to me: while performing chest compressions, air is automatically exchanged in the lungs via the intrathoracic pressure changes. Think: when someone gets hit in the gut/chest, they make a "ugh" noise: this is due to air being forced out of the lungs via a "chest compression". Being an ICU nurse, I have performed CPR many times and am witness to this.

It helps to ensure the head is tilted back to keep the throat open. Thanks for sharing this link.
