Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

If you think your skiing is getting harder just because you're getting older, then think again.

Thats a massive blanket statement
But based on reliable statistics. Anecdotally my experience reflects the stats. I did resus under instruction from 999 operator till flying doctor and three ambulances arrived. And I had done the course, some years previously. It didn't work, and the statistics show it rarely does - and even professionals don't have a stunning success rate. Yes, there are some happy success stories but the odds are not great.

CPR has a reasonable success rate in some circumstances. Generally, however, CPR has a very low success rate and the burdens and risks of CPR include harmful side effects such as rib fracture and damage to internal organs; adverse clinical outcomes such as hypoxic brain damage; and other consequences for the patient such as increased physical disability. If the use of CPR is not successful in restarting the heart or breathing, and in restoring circulation, it may mean that the patient dies in an undignified and traumatic manner.

Fair enough. I'll stay positive given my (and my friends) experiences Smile Smile

It can be flipping horrible and traumatic too - having been an Ambulance First Responder, I've seen many more incidents in that side of life that did and didn't work (mostly didn't - the positives tend to be when you see the person collapse; not when you turn up 8 minutes later). Arriving on scene knowing that the patient is dead and not 'coming back' regardless of what you do but not being able to 'call it' because we were only FRs was pretty hard.

Its the experiences outside of that that keep me positive and willing to use the knowledge if and when . . .
