I wanted to share this video with you. We know sudden cardiac arrest happens almost every 2 minutes to someone in the U.S. but we rarely get a chance to watch a real cardiac arrest occur, see the rescue caught on a security camera and then hear the patient talk about his experience so that everyone can learn from it. If you or someone you know does not know how to provide CPR, please go to www.profirstaid.com and watch the free CPR training by clicking on the training video tab. Or simply click here after you watch the video below.

iRescueRadio 007: New Years Resolutions, Second-hand Smoking, Jett Travolta, Kawasaki Disease, Seizures, Melamine, Adoption, World’s Oldest Woman
In this, the seventh episode of iRescueRadio, Roy, Dan and Jody discuss New Years Resolutions, a woman giving birth in an airplane, second-hand smoke, and melamine in milk effecting adoptions from China.
The big segment this episode is a discussion on seizures, and what can cause them, with John Travolta’s son Jett Travolta as the inspiration to help others to understand what is going on, and how they can help if a loved one has a seizure. If you haven’t heard, Jett Travolta had Kawasaki Disease, and late last week, had seizures.. CPR was attempted by John, paramedics arrived, and they attempted rescue until exhaustion. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Travolta family in this time of loss.
We close the episide this week talking about the world’s oldest woman.
