Bystanders less likely to perform CPR on women in public


Women are less likely than men to be given CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) if they fall unconscious and their heart stops beating in a public place, according to a new study. The researchers found that in public locations, women were 28% less likely to receive CPR compared to men. However, it was found that older people were less likely to receive CPR in private locations. With every 10-year increase in age, men were around 9% less likely to be given CPR during a cardiac arrest. Dr Cournoyer notes: “In an emergency when someone is unconscious and not breathing properly, in addition to calling an ambulance, bystanders should give CPR.
