Is Hands Only CPR Real Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation?


Christian Food for Thought:

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul (KJV, Genesis 2:7). Man can perform physical CPR that might or might not resuscitate a clinically dead patient. God performed not only physical "CPR" but also performs spiritual "CPR." A tip for understanding the scriptures involves remembering that the biblical account of things which took place in the physical and natural world shadows or represents what takes place in the intangible and spiritual world.

Hands Only CPR and the Definition of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation which refers not only to chest compressions for blood circulation, but also to rescue breathing; it is the combination of both life-saving interventions for a person who is in respiratory and cardiac arrest, which is clinical death. Mr David W. Boles reminds the public of the true meaning of CPR in his excellent article, "The Strange Breathlessness of HandsOnlyCPR.org." He is one of the few people who are evaluating Hands Only CPR from more than one aspect when he says, "I was always trained and taught that proper CPR meant chest compressions AND breathing into the victim’s mouth — but that no longer seems to be the case — according to HandsOnlyCPR.org."

As an emergency medical technician (EMT), I am also trained in real cardiopulmonary resuscitation at the health care provider level; Mr. Boles is absolutely correct in his statement. Hands Only CPR is not CPR; it is chest compressions; therefore, in my opinion it should not be called CPR. Putting that detail aside, I can say that I fully support and praise the idea behind Hands Only "CPR." Nevertheless, I am one of the few people who see the need to lighten up on the emphasis on simplicity even for laypeople. I'll explain.

What's Missing in Hands Only CPR?

People are being told that if they witness the sudden collapse of an adult or a teenager, they should immediately perform Hands Only CPR to help try to save a life. What could possibly be wrong with that? When considering the good intentions of good Samaritans, nothing is wrong. However, I agree with the people, most of whom are health care providers or laypeople who have been trained in conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation, who say that an important step is missing from the instructions given for when and how to perform Hands Only CPR--the need to check for a carotid pulse.

Why is this important? The body has what's known as peripheral and central pulses. Peripheral pulses can be felt on the periphery or outer reaches of the body. For example, the radial pulse is felt in the wrist--the one that a nurse might take when registering vital signs during a check-up. Usually a machine does this nowadays; but, this peripheral pulse used to be checked manually. A central pulse is felt in the central part or near the torso of the body. The carotid and femoral pulses are central. The femoral pulse is very difficult to palpate, but the carotid pulse could be located by a young child. It can be felt in the neck, just to either side of the trachea (windpipe). Don't press on both sides at the same time causing someone with a pulse to be deprived of oxygenated blood to the brain.

Perhaps people should be instructed to take a few seconds to verify whether a person who suddenly collapses has a pulse before pounding on his or her chest with Hands Only CPR. Providing chest compressions on a beating heart is not good. An adult or teenager who suddenly collapses might have a pulse. What is so difficult about checking for a carotid pulse before doing unnecessary chest compressions? It can be palpated in a couple of seconds. Emergency medical technician training warns that, "Providing chest compressions during CPR is dangerous if the heart is beating, however weakly. This is why the carotid pulse, rather than a peripheral pulse, is used to determine pulselessness, the sign that CPR compressions should begin." Will the instructions of how and when to perform Hands Only CPR be modified to include a check for the presence of a carotid pulse? Individuals don't have to wait for such an action from the American Heart Association; they can put this step into practice themselves as they embrace Hands Only CPR.
