Maureen O’Connor from San Diego Heartbeat
Maureen is with San Diego Fire Rescue and teaches CPR and other lifesaving procedures.
SDFR has saved thousands of lives including 5 children with Cardiac Arrest (CA). The difference between a heart attack and CA is that anyone in CA (sudden death) must have immediate assistance to survive and a heart attack is typically a precursor to CA if the warning signs are not heeded, i.e., most CAs are the result of heart attack symptoms left un-cared for.
The heart is about the size of your fist, and it is the hearts’ job to pull and push blood, like a pump.
Cardiac Arrest is Ventricular Fibrillation and is an electrical system problem whereas a heart attack is a plumbing problem. A heart attack is signaled by deep chest pressure, shortness of breath, upper back, neck, arm & jaw pain, and ashen appearance.
Maureen utilized IPP Mike Raney and Coleen Owens on the proper use of chest compressions and the AED . Stayin’ Alive is the most popular song to keep the beat to during chest compressions which requires 100-120 beats per minute to the sternum area of the chest.
