French Expert Zhao Yan from Zhongnan Hospital Emergency Center said, when respiratory and cardiac arrest are sent to the hospital, only 5% of them can go out of the hospital alive because of not getting effective life supporting rescue before being sent to the hospital. He also mentioned after the breathing and heart beat stop for 6 minutes, the brain cell begin to die gradually. If the time lasts for 30 minutes, even the most talented doctor cannot save the patient. 5 students use what they learned in school to perform correctly and recover the patient’s circulation, saving the time for the first aid in the hospital.
