I wonder if anyone reading this has ever had to do CPR or has seen it done the right way.

Just wondering about what mistakes can be made under the stress of the moment that might make it worse for the person needing help.

Thanks Jason.

Placing the hands too low, breaking off the tip of the Xyphoid Process, for starters, I suppose (never seen that happen, actually). Maybe placing the hands too far to the left. Or not doing CPR before shocking with an AED (you need to prime the pump!). Mostly, in the heat of the moment, people either get into speed, and don't get to the proper depth, or they focus on depth, and don't go fast enough. Just as bad is when people don't rotate out, and they tire out, giving inneffective CPR (too slow AND not deep enough) for who knows how long until someone finally notices. It's exhausting, and nobody's Superman, so have a little humility and let someone else take over!

Thanks Jason, this is what I had in mind.

People will panic and screw up just like in a self defense situation. :lol:
