As a retired GP of 40 years’ experience I was sickened to hear that St Johns Ambulance have instituted a murderous policy in which CardioPULMONARY Resuscitation (CPR) has now had the PULMONARY removed. Unconscious patients are to have their faces covered with a towel which will further reduce their oxygen supply. There is to be no “rescue breath” to help the patient breathe. The first principle of first aid is to CLEAR THE AIRWAY. The brain is starved of oxygen after 3 minutes, well before any ambulance could arrive.
This is murder.
