Studies in the US have shown that women who suffer a cardiac arrest in public were less likely to receive CPR as compared to me, hence reducing the survival rates for women. The main concern is the fear of being sued for sexual harassment which resulted in the responders being hesitant to help the female victim with chest compressions.
However, if we do not step up doing CPR or help the patient, the chances of survival will decrease over time without the CPR intervention. So step up and DARE to save a heart.
Remember when you dial 995, the 995 specialist is always on the line to assist you until the ambulance arrives.
