At this event, I got the chance to do some CPR training with the help of Save A Little Life. At the end of this blog post, I’m going to share tips with you about what I learned. I firmly believe anyone should educate themselves on these things so that they could potentially save a life one day; you really never know when you’ll need it!!
Okay, so in case you’ve totally been living under a rock, let me tell you what these two shows are about.
The Resident is dark, suspenseful, and tugs at your heartstrings. The show heavily touches on the politics of working in a hospital- and the relationship between the doctors, nurses, and administration. In season one, we even saw some doctors with bad intentions. I absolutely love medical dramas, so this show really does it for me.
One thing I’ve been DYING to know about season two is how the storyline develops with Conrad and Nic. Anyone else? I love their chemistry and they make such a great team. I guess we’ll find out soon!
I’m going to be tuning into the premiere of The Resident in my pajamas on Monday, September 24th at 8/7c only on FOX!
Another incredibly binge-worthy show on FOX is 9-1-1.
9-1-1 explores the high-pressure experiences of first responders- including police officers, firefighters, and dispatchers who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives.
9-1-1 is somehow sad, suspenseful, dramatic, and uplifting all at the same time. Each episode takes you on an emotional rollercoaster.
Guess who is joining the cast for season two? Jennifer Love Hewitt!! The trailer opens with her voice which totally surprised and delighted me. She’s going to be playing Buck’s sister as a new 911 operator.
In the intense trailer for season two, it’s apparent that chaos is about to hit LA, literally. A massive earthquake hits and the characters will be kept very busy as usual.
Being from LA where this is a very real possibility, the trailer really shook me, no pun intended! I know I’ll be on the edge of my seat while watching.
For its second season, the series is moving to a NEW Monday night slot.
Don’t miss the 2-Night Premiere Event September 23rd & 24th at 9/8c only on FOX. You are not going to want to miss this, I know I won’t!
Now, are you ready for your mini CPR class? I have some notes that I took during my FOX CPR training.
CPR, or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. CPR has the most success when performed immediately, so that means get CPR started ASAP! Most people having an emergency are saved by the first people who respond to them – not paramedics or the hospital.
Still, always call 911 and put them on speaker phone so they can help you and walk you through what to do and send an emergency team for further assistance.
CPR keeps oxygen flowing to the victim’s brain. Pressing down and releasing a human chest fills the heart with blood. The continuous pumping sucks oxygen and delivers it to the brain.
CPR is the same concept for babies, toddlers, and adults- it’s the same spot, just a different method. Make sure to cover the nose and mouth fully before performing CPR.
CPR can actually revive most infants and kids. Because they are so small, babies only require two fingers in the center of the chest during chest compressions. Compressions for infants should only be an inch to an inch and a half deep. Frequency should be 30 compressions to two rescue breaths.
For adults, CPR can save them by providing blood/oxygen to their heart and brain. For an adult, you’ll provide compressions with two hands in the center of the chest, putting pressure through the heels of your hands. The depth of compression for adults should be approximately two inches.
So how fast do you pump? Think of the song “Stayin’ Alive.” The beat of that song is 100 beats per minute. Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
Knowing this basic CPR information can help you save someone’s life, but I encourage you to attend a real CPR training class. There is so much more than what I’ve provided to educate yourself on. It seriously makes a huge difference and is something everyone should learn!
