    Hi there, have you tried out RevealTravelDeal yet? Just have a look at their website: ???????????????????? I have stumbled upon some ridiculously inexpensive deluxe resorts and even flights. This might allow you to spend less on your future journey too.

    good work guys!

    on a side note: LOL@ “a shot of maxolon will help stabilise him”

    No, this was around the point they were still teaching 30:2. And compressions at 100bpm (to note this is around 30 in comparison – very poor recognition and CPR).

    What?

  7. achraf bouzidi on 22/10/2013 at 12:16 pm

    God, I love Medicine.

    Why the hell was that guy giving a compression every 5 seconds

    • Dev Zaveri on 07/04/2014 at 1:32 am

      Compression rates back then were different.

    A heart attack is funny

  11. Jennifer Hilliard on 11/02/2014 at 6:31 am

    possibly red cross standard (guess since American Heart doesn’t teach lifeguarding). and from 2008 which explain ABC instead of CAB. Bad CPR is better than NO CPR. And I must say these guys did great… hell it worked didn’t it!

    People that complain about the slow rate of the compressions, keep in mind this was a couple of years ago, it was different regulations about how fast you should do it back then. It changes frequently. // Licensed CPR instructor

      +TwoOneSevenSixFiveSixFive In basic terms, they are not breathing.. the heart is next. Always remember the AED is set up to find a irregular, shock-able rhythm. The 2 main reasons it wont shock is you have a normal heart beat or you have asystole. Starting CPR immediately and hooking the AED up immediately is what is going to give your patient the best chance of survival. Much like a choking patient..

      +TwoOneSevenSixFiveSixFive He didn’t drown. He had an arrhythmia that caused him go into a shockable rhythm

    I just took a CPR class today.¬† The guys did it exactly the way I was taught, except 30 compressions, then the 2 breaths.¬† I thought the timing of the compressions was just fine….they were calm, relaxed, got ‘er done.

    • Batmarde on 21/06/2014 at 2:16 am

      I found that standards for cpr are quite different from a place to another. In hospitals we even learn to just let go the breath and only do compressions since the slight movement of the chest ventilates the lungs. Anyway i’m glad there’s some people like you still taking those lessons.

    • Eirik Syvertsen on 10/08/2014 at 3:25 pm

      one year its 30/2, the next its 15/1 or 10/1, it does not really matter aslong as you are doing something untill the ambo gets there.

  14. gusti an on 09/04/2014 at 12:45 am

    harus diselamatkan

  15. TyquiDean on 24/04/2014 at 3:52 pm

    ¬†you usually learn spelling before cpr…

  16. guido7095 on 06/05/2014 at 8:03 pm

    first song name?

  17. Philip V. on 01/06/2014 at 3:38 am

    Built in Aussie accent into the title.

  18. Juul V on 08/06/2014 at 8:33 am

    Victims of drowning should get 5 initial breaths first, because there cardiac arrest is most likely caused by asphyxial arrest. Same as children.
    He stopped the compressions too early when the AED came, he should have continued until 30, or untill the AED was ready to analyse the heartrythm.
    I totally agree that the compressions were to slow, but I think they were technically right and that is very important! In 2008 it had to be 80-100 so he did it perfectly.

    Aussies rock

  20. tertertr tetrete on 10/09/2014 at 1:06 pm

    The dude drowned he didnt have a heart attack

    • Niclas Abildgaard on 26/06/2015 at 1:35 pm

      +tertertr tetrete after he drowned he got the heart attack

    • Lee Taylor on 29/10/2015 at 11:21 am

      +tertertr tetrete Wrong – he did not drown – he had un undiagnosed cardiac arrhythmia (LQTS) which caused his heart to go into a shockable rhythm – watch the next episode to see his pacemaker being put in.

  21. ozmaorigrl on 19/09/2014 at 7:33 am

    OMG! how long did it take for them to start compressions! If there is no pulse, begin CPR immediately.
    ¬†But bloody great effort thou, nice work fellas! If you are doing CPR, do it to the song ‘Stayin’ alive’ that’s how fast you want to be going.

  22. Haroldas Ski on 20/09/2014 at 12:28 pm

    it wasn’t a heart attack!

  23. joseph dunn on 15/11/2014 at 7:07 am

    Awesome blokes. ¬†Please update us on this poor man’s condition.

  24. Hafzzz Ali on 26/11/2014 at 9:10 pm

    He is doing the compressions so slow!!!!

  25. Bubblybabs L on 30/11/2014 at 7:42 am

    Wow, want to crawl though the screen and scream “pump faster!”

    • Lee Taylor on 29/10/2015 at 11:31 am

      +Barbara Leibert – True Barbara but it was 2008 so using pre 2010 guidelines were compressions were 100 per min

    • Bubblybabs L on 29/10/2015 at 6:05 pm

      +Lee Taylor I’ve been a nurse for 20+ years, I don’t ever recall doing CPR that slowly.

  26. FARAH pro on 02/03/2015 at 5:25 pm

    Wow this video was shared 2008 !!!
    Wer’e 2015 now

    • Lee Taylor on 29/10/2015 at 11:23 am

      +Farah Fahim yeah I agree but a great video to demonstrate AGONAL BREATHING or a patient NOT BREATHING normally – used a lot in the UK to demonstrate what to look out for when assessing someone’s breathing who has collapsed

  27. Stephen Metcalf on 17/03/2015 at 8:55 pm

    Every single one of those guys deserves the keys to the city! Absolutely beautiful!

  28. Gillian Campbell on 06/08/2015 at 9:55 pm

    This was not a heart attack but a cardiac arrest caused by drowning.

    • Lee Taylor on 29/10/2015 at 11:21 am

      +Gillian Campbell Wrong – he did not drown – he had un undiagnosed cardiac arrhythmia (LQTS) which caused his heart to go into a shockable rhythm – watch the next episode to see his pacemaker being put in.

  29. Samiya Yusuf on 19/08/2015 at 10:18 pm

    It’s funny how it’s always Asians and Indians who always get rescued

  30. Gillian Campbell on 30/10/2015 at 5:24 pm

    Lee Taylor, it was definitely a near drowning as his sudden cardiac arrest resulted him being face down in the water for enough time to have inhaled water.
