Women less likely than men to receive CPR from passerby, study says

Image UPI

For the study, presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2017, researchers evaluated 19,331 cardiac events using data from the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium, a network of regional clinical centres in the United States and Canada which study out-of-hospital treatments of cardiac arrest and trauma. They have also found that in only one in three cases does the overexerted amore receive what cardiologists term "bystander CPR", but what everyone else would term "the very least a considerate lover could do".

The researchers found that 45 per cent of men received bystander CPR in public compared to 39 per cent of women.

If you suffer cardiac arrest in public, just being a woman means you're less likely to receive potentially life-saving CPR from a passerby, according to a new study.

This is the first to examine gender differences in receiving heart help from the public versus professional responders.

Travolta accused of 'sexual battery'
John Travolta was accused of sexual battery by a 21-year-old male masseur, according to a police report obtained by Radar Online. The office concluded in the report that "he told me he made no advances toward Travolta, and didn't say anything to lead him on".

Another study leader, Dr. Benjamin Abella, of UPenn, said rescuers are afraid to move a woman's clothes or touch her breasts, though if you are administering CPR properly, you wouldn't.

The findings are pushing officials to reconsider how CPR trainings are taught, including the far more common use of a male torso mannequin for demonstrations, as well as the useful placement of defibrillator pads on "large breasts".

In addition to bystander CPR rates in public locations, the team also looked at possible disparities of in-home CPR.

"Regardless of someone's gender or how their body is shaped, delivering bystander CPR during cardiac arrest is absolutely critical, as it has been proven to double and even triple a victim's chance of survival".
