CPR in Entertainment: Movies and Television

In CPR, CPR in Entertainment, TV shows by Paul Martin3 Comments

We’re going to start a series of entries on CPR as it happens in movies and television shows.  It happens pretty regularly, and not always correctly.  In fact, it happens incorrectly more often than not.

We’re going to look at one scene per movie or television series for each entry.  We’ll be looking at classic scenes from films like The Sandlot and television series such as Lost and Scrubs.  If you have suggestions as to other movies and TV shows to look at for an entry, do let us know!

Let’s have fun with this series.  We’ll try to get clips whenever it is possible, but if not, then we’ll grab some screen captures from the scenes.

    More movies and TV that have CPR and Heimlech manuever: Mrs. Doubtfire. Dejavu, Mash, Lost in Space (?) — Sounds like fun. Has anyone ever thought of teaching the actors how to do it right, so it would be effective public education?
    I appreciate having the reminders via email. I have been overseas and could not get the internet feeds, but could always read the first paragraph and get “brushed up” on my skills.
    My new hospital didn’t accept your card as “officially” being from AHA, so I had to repeat the course prior to hire. Oh, well, some people don’t like the newcomers.
