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

Power of Possible Fixing Pulmonary Hypertension

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.

Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPD) Upgraded to Hold by Zacks Investment Research
CBL Properties (NYSE:CBL) recently saw its volume around 6.86 million shares and on average it trades 4.06 million shares a day. One such company is Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (Symbol: EPD), which saw buying by Director Carin Marcy Barth.

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".
