Continuous Chest Compression CPR
You can lessen the recurring loss by heart attack by learning Continuous Chest Compression CPR, a hands-only CPR method that doubles a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest. It’s easy and does not require mouth-to-mouth contact, making it more likely bystanders will try to help, and it was developed at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

Will I need an operation?
Reactions to the diagnosis of a long-term condition. Many people go to the doctor not knowing in advance that they have symptoms of a long-term health condition. Most people probably couldn't name more than one or two long-term conditions. And yet people with conditions like Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiac Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis make up a large part of primary care work. You may understand what the long-term condition is medically, but do you really understand how shocked people can f
