  • How many of you folks have been trained in CPR or other life saving techniques? On December 23 my Dad experienced a seizure whil

    How many of you folks have been trained in CPR or other life saving techniques? On December 23 my Dad experienced a seizure while deer hunting with me. His breathing and heart stopped. CPR on my part brought him back and bridged the gap until the paramedics could take over. He is alive!!!!! I'll write more about this experience when I have time. Don't find yourself looking into a loved one's eyes, seeing the light go out of them and not be able to do something about it. I challenge you to make this a priority in the first weeks of the New Year. LEARN CPR!

    Bee, Thank God he is alive. I've been wondering what was up with you. Had CPR training in the Army, Fortunately I've never had to use it.

        Like Del said, thank God that he's alive. And I too am trained to do CPR. Let's just hope I never have to use it.

          Wow, if this doesn't motivate you to get trained in CPR then nothing will. I'm searching for my local class schedules right now. Glad he's ok, and that you were there.

            Had to use it this past summer. Gentlemans heart stoped, i got a pulse back and had to do rescue breaths till emt's got there. Have had lots of training in cpr and really all training just kicked in. He ended up living, was my first time to use it.... and it sucks. But your right being trained in such life saving techniques are priceless!

              Thanks for the heads up BeeKeeper!
              Yes I have had it also.

              I'll pray for your father ... it's been said that when a loved one suffers a setback such as your Dad, God is giving the people that love him time to express their love for and to him, to resolve and forgive any differences they may have had, so their relationship may continue to prosper in harmony and Love.

              Beekeeper,thanks for sharing with us!

                  I call that sound advice. I hope your Dad recovers promptly and completely. Good work, Bee. You were in the right place at the right time to keep this from being a tragic memory. I hope the New Year is a safe, healthy and happy year for all on this forum.

                    There are those who think I carry crazy stuff like my VHF Hand Held and SPOT, but after 20 years assisting Local, State and Federal Law Enforcement and Search & Rescue, you never know what, when and where!

                    It is not a question of IF!

                    It is a question of WHEN!


                    I've been lucky so far, my number came close at time to come up, not yet and I have showed Alex how to use my SPOT.

                      Thankfully, he is ok. Yes, for years I have been trained in CPR and first aid.

                        Great post Beekeep, yes everyone should learn CPR. I've never had to use my training, but it's nice to know when the need arises.

                          I am a certified rescue diver. I haven't had to use any of my training yet but its always good to know what to do when things turn for the worst.

                              Beekeeper, I'm glad you were able to get your dad to the hospital and I hope recovers quickly and fully. Your post was a deja vu experience for me, as I had to perform CPR on my father until the ambulance arrived and got him to the hospital. As you pointed out, I was able to do something positive instead of standing by helplessly.
