Nuns in the U.S. Are Facing Scrutiny by the Vatican New York Times
Few survive cardiac arrest, even with hospital CPR PhysOrg. Yes, but you are supposed to keep doing CPR until someone can do something to get the heart going, like defilibrate. I saw an awful incident in Europe. Our boat was in a lock, and a man in a motorboat behind us had a heart attack. A woman in the boat was desperately giving him CPR but also trying to keep the boat from banging into the lock. Needless to say, that interrupted the CPR. The man died. He probably would have died anyhow, but the point is you need to keep the CPR going even if the person is unresponsive. A doctor on our boat said people have been revived even after an hour plus of CPR.
