CPR instructions for Boston Marathon Runners

The organization of the famous Boston Marathon has posted a CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) instruction on their website. With the use of a video runners, and of course other who are interested, can learn how they can perform CPR.
Being trained in CPR I strongly advise not only to watch this video. If you seriously what to help: try to find a first aid class nearby an practise! They have dummies on which you can practise the posture, the rhythm and the technique.
However let this not withhold you to come to the rescue the minute you see a runner collaps because even with this video in mind you might be able to save someones life!

So please watch careful en remember: It can also happen in everyday live.

For a success story:

Carlton Smith mentiones an AED. This stand for Automated External Defibrillator. More and more you can find the First Aid version of this devise in for example stores of public buildings.
Below you find an instructional video. Again I strongly advise to follow some classes to go through the drill as shown in the second part of this video:

Let hope you never have to use this knowledge!
