You could only smile and nod for so long before you wanted to fake your demise. The thing was, Carmen would have been able to save you and then you would have to listen to her unintelligible stories again.
When I think back to times I’ve laughed really hard that I was crying, THIS story definitely comes to mind. Carmen was doing her best, as we all were, to keep up with the instructor and his many “simple” rules for how to remember CPR. We knew the very first thing to do was to locate someone by LOOKING THEM IN THE EYE and then proceed to work your CPR magic.
NOW: Compress 2 inches (no singing).
NOW: Compress AT LEAST 100 times in a minute (no jokes).
#3: You no longer apply the A-B-C (airway-breathing-circulation) principle while tilting your head to the left and clicking your tongue.
NOW: It’s C-A-B now, folks, as in circulation-airway-breathing. To help you remember, just think CAB, as in The Yellow Cab. If you see someone that needs CPR, call a CAB!
#4: You no longer “look, listen and feel for breathing”.
NOW: Get busy! If that person looks a lifeless, bust out your face mask and get to puffing and pushing. You have no time to waste. If you hear them breathing again, don’t stop. You aren’t not supposed to look, listen or feel for breathing anymore, remember? Just keep going until she knocks you out with her shoe.
There are about 800 more updates, but I can see you looking at your watch.
