Need CPR? Whether you get
it may depend on
the neighborhood

Los Angeles Times, by Amina Khan

If your heart stops and you fall to the ground, your chances of survival may depend on which neighborhood you're in when you collapse. Patients suffering cardiac arrest in poorer, predominantly black neighborhoods were half as likely to receive CPR from a bystander as those in richer, predominantly white neighborhoods, according to research published in Thursday's edition of the New England Journal of Medicine. Even cardiac arrest victims in well-to-do black neighborhoods were 23% less likely to receive bystander assistance. And overall, blacks and Latinos were less likely to receive aid, regardless of where they were.

Comments:
Extra! Extra! Heart attack emergency treatment is racist. Oh brother. Go ahead, let's see them fix blame (they don't).

When Obamacare goes fully into affect, will there be an age restriction on who they do CPR on?

Maybe that's because the bystanders in the "minority neighborhoods" were mainly other minorities who a) didn't know how to do CPR, and b) didn't give a rat's a** whether Shaniqua lived or died

However, victims in poor neighborhoods were more likely to have their wallets, jewelry and phones stolen once they hit the ground.

If the study has a conclusion, it seems that black people are less likely to give aid. Even though the article really tip toes around it, that can be the only conclusion.

If people in Black and Latino neighborhoods are less likely to receive CPR from those around them, then I'm guess people in Black and Latino neighborhoods are less likely to stop and render aid.

Basic human decency is being intentionally destroyed, and mankind appears to be rapidly devolving.

That is a racist article! clearly the people in minority neighborhoods don't do CPR because of the lasting repercussions of slavery and oppression, what is needed to correct this is a reperations program like the Pigford scam.

Blacks and Latinos 30% less likely to receive CPR than whites. I wonder why - could it be fear of being attacked, of being infected by some dread disease such as AIDS or hepatitis, or of being sued by the victim for doing something wrong?

Meant to type that blacks and Latinos are 30% less likely to receive CPR, regardless of what kind of neighborhood they're in.

This is about how blacks and Latinos are perceived and/or valued and/or empathized with.

FTA:

"We've started to look into how neighborhoods affect people's health for obesity and food deserts and cancer, but this is the first time we've really thought about it for cardiac arrest," said Dr. Comilla Sasson, an emergency medicine physician at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, who led the study.

Where have we heard that "obesity and food deserts" meme before?

Dr. Sasson was one of the ER physicians who treated victims of the Aurora (CO) theater shooting:

(hit submit too soon)

And for many, Sasson said, the perceived crime risk in low income, minority neighborhoods keeps them from going out in the street to help someone who has collapsed.

That's in part why emergency medical physicians and cardiologists are promoting a new, simpler type of CPR. It requires no mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, only that a bystander perform at least 100 chest compressions per minute, to the beat of — yes — the Bee Gee's disco-era hit "Stayin' Alive."


The notion of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation was not exactly a winner.

Yes, the new CPR requires only chest compressions, and quite frankly, i would not do M2M on ANYONE except a family member or someone's little kid.

I didn't learn until recently, that most of the time when you do M2M, the victim is going to puke all over the place.

That said,100 chest compressions in a minute is hard work. If you are going to start, you have to keep going until you can physically no longer do it or until other help arrives.

I'd do it fr someone in hopes that someone would do it for me if I ever needed it.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary.

Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term.
