    If a person isn’t breathing, as the campaign suggests, but has a heart beat then that person does not require compressions but oxygen and therefore mouth to mouth if an air bag is not available. It is when the heart is not pulsating that compressions are needed and in both cases mouth to mouth is needed due to the fact that after 3 minutes of no oxygen to the brain it will start to die, leaving the patient brain damaged. This is why the body has a constant flow of oxygen being pumped into our bodies… I am sincerely worried that this campaign will causes cases of brain death in the attempt to save their life.

    Wow. I had heard about this from Breaking Bad actually. I know that sounds weird. But in one scene someone tries to breathe into the unconscious person’s mouth and Walt says, “No they found out that that doesn’t help.” Very interesting stuff. Thanks for this.
