CPR, Bee Gees and Hockey Players? Oh Ya..!

A disco ball and a hockey rink are used to help show people how CPR works? Yep! Thanks to the Golden Heart Community Foundation, the University of Fairbanks, Alaska, and the Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation, there’s a popular video on YouTube showing a CPR demonstration on a hockey rink to the tune of the disco smash, “Stayin’ Alive.” Who knew the Bee Gees’ classic song could help show people how to perform CPR on people, right? It’s also pretty unusual (and funny) to see a bunch of tough hockey players do a sort of flash mob electric slide on the ice to keep it visually interesting.  The five minute video includes a good exchange between two people: “I didn’t know disco could save lives. No- CPR can save lives!”

Ugh, it’s that time of year!

That’s right. I’m not talking about sugar cookies, presents, Christmas lights and kissing under the mistletoe, I’m talking about the Flu! Yup, the Grinch that stole Christmas, it’s back.

Don’t forget to get your Flu vaccination!

Symptoms of this nasty Grinchy Flu include:

A 100′ F or higher fever or feeling feverish (not everyone with the flu has a fever)
A cough and/or sore throat
A runny or stuffy nose
Headaches and/or body aches
Chills
Fatigue
Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea (most common in children)

The “seasonal flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May.

Choking, the scary truth.

“If you were to design the perfect plug for a child’s airway, you couldn’t do much better than a hot dog,” said Dr. Smith, also a Professor of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. “It will wedge itself in tightly and completely block the airway, causing the child to die within minutes because of lack of oxygen.”

Choking is scary. The best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones is to get CPR certified through Heart Corp. Be Prepared!

Here are some helpful tips to reduce the risk of choking:

*Do not give children younger than 4 any round, firm foods unless they have been cut into very small pieces. Cut hot dogs lengthwise and cut grapes into quarters. This changes the dangerous round shape that can block a young child’s throat.

* not give toddlers other high risk foods, such as hard candy, nuts, seeds and raw carrots.

*Never let small children run, play or lie down while eating.

*Keep coins and other small items out of reach of young children at all times.

*Carefully read warning labels on toys before giving them to young children.

*To check if a part of a toy is too small, use a small parts test device, which is available at many toy stores.

*Additionally, parents and caregivers should learn first aid for choking and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the event a choking episode occurs.

CPR is one of the easiest first aid courses to learn.

If you’ve never been to a CPR class, just remember… Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of ‘Stayin Alive’ and don’t stop until help arrives! And don’t forget to call 911!
