Little moments of Joy
I'm one of the spaktards that works unbelievable hours for shit pay, only to be told by Cameron that my pay has gone up (it hasn't, the cnut has frozen it, so I won't even get my 1% I was promised).
Anyway, caring for those in the direst need has other rewards:
1. A patient taking a breath after "being down" for 20 minutes.
2. A patient taking it's first breath.
3. A patient taking their last breath, now their suffering is over.
So stuff your 1% Cameron, up your tight wrinkly sphincter, because all of the above are worth more than your sickening corrupt 11% pay increase you've awarded yourselves!

you do know it's not (yet) illegal to say "cunt" online
if you mean "cunt", just say "cunt"; don't hide behind cute self-censorship

I agree, we should make anyone who isn't a Tory-sympathetic second-, third- or greater-generation graduate pay through the nose for the right to vote
that'd be the best way to ensure that anyone who votes is properly educated

Sadly, the problem with the whole 'first breath after 20 minutes' thing...
…tends also to carry with it the rather slight downer of likely hypoxic brain injury or likely ensuing masive chronic cardiac failure..

Because in modern medicine
there have been no machines or first aid techniques developed to help people who are unable to breath pump oxygen around their body until they can take a breath for themselves.
(, Mon 27 Jan 2014, 8:14, closed)
Trouble is, that really, really isn't as good as the actual real thing.
And it's more than likely that the person suffering the cardiac arrest will have had rather poor oxygenation and/or circulation in the hours leading up the arrest.
(, Mon 27 Jan 2014, 8:33, closed)
They're still good enough
to prevent any of the side effects from oxygen deprivation you mentioned plus the original poster never mentioned cardiac arrest specifically, there are a number of reasons why a person would not be able to breath on their own.
(, Mon 27 Jan 2014, 8:50, closed)
He didn't say the patient was unable to breathe on his own
he said 'being down'.

Might be a good idea to learn basic comprehension and fact retention before pontificating on the internet.

In adults, the respiratory arrest is usually a happy side-effect of a cardiac arrest, kiddies more likely the other way round.
Either way, the longer you spend resus-ing someone the greater the likelihood of the whole 'utterly fucked' scenario happening is.

Define being down for me Dr
because I just asked a friend who is a nurse and they're definition was someone in need of life support. You know what life support machines do? Help people who can't breath, breath.
(, Mon 27 Jan 2014, 10:20, closed)
'Life support' isn't just airway support. Once you've secured that, you've got to make sure they've got a decent cardiac function so's that airway is actually of some use to them.

I wasn't arguing with AB
I was arguing with you fuck nuts. Not that it matters because my original point that someone can survive 20 minutes of assisted breathing through resuscitation or through a ventilator and not suffer brain damage through lack of oxygen is a simple fact. That's all I was saying. However likely or unlikely that is is besides the point it still happens.

They can, but your chances of that happening becomes exponentially less the longer past 4 minutes you go.
Resus only keeps a certain percentage of oxygen moving and, more importantly doesn't clear carbon dioxide very well, which will fuck you up.

If someone's 'been down' for 20 minutes without breathing, one way or another, they've probably had a cardiac arrest.
And if someone's been fuckwitted enough NOT to intubate someone after 20 minutes of not breathing then, no matter how good your resus skilz are, they are probably, in the long term, to use medical parlance, fucked.

More to the point, if they've been intubated, then they're probably not heavily sedated and/or paralysed and very unlikely to breathe..

He didn't award himself an 11% pay increase, nor was it sickeningly corrupt.
He is still a cunt though.
(, Mon 27 Jan 2014, 8:52, closed)

To be fair (which He isn't), He didn't award himself 11%, but all of them, regardless of affiliation, accepted 11%, while those of us in the NHS had our pay frozen. (And that was the point after all).
It really depends on your definition of "sickeningly corrupt":
I think most of us can agree that it's sickening.
Corruption can be perfectly legal & still be corrupt.
And yes he is still a cunt!

OED: "dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power"
Don't you think it's dishonest to accept money when lying to the public about workers income going up?
It may not be exactly the definition you want or expect (but then I'm not a pedant), but yes, it is to make a point.

You're doing an excellent job of pretending to be thick.

(, Mon 27 Jan 2014, 10:40, closed)
It would be dishonest/fraudulent to accept money while claiming that you're not accepting money.

It would be dishonest/fraudulent to say that average income in real-terms is going up when your statistics actually say it is going down.

However, neither of those things are the case. Also, neither of those things are remotely related to each other, therefore, what the fuck are you talking about?
