When you see a cardiac arrest, your brain fights you - "No, this isn't really happening" - and the circumstances fight you - "Dang! in CPR class the manikin didn't weigh very much and wasn't sitting in a deep chair. This blog deals with practical details and presents reports of "saves." Let me have your questions and comments - they will steer the course of this blog.

October is Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month, and Pittsburgh Gives, a Pittsburrgh charity is once again setting up a matching fund. The way this works is that, if you make a donation to a deserving charity on their list - and my biased favorite is The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation in Wexford, PA - the Pittsburgh Gives Foundation will split the matching pool among all the participating charities, pro-rata. For example, if the charities raise $400,000 and the matching pool were $100,000 each of the participating charities would receive an extra $25 for every $100 they raised.
