We discussed in tip #25 about peoples beliefs combined with fake news. This sometimes results in people being too scared to start CPR as they believe they will do more harm than good.
Fantastic news if you commence CPR on a dead person you cannot make them any worse. The only thing you can do when starting CPR is good. You are providing the dead person with their only chance of survival or a second chance of life.
To put this further into perspective, imagine a person collapses in front of you. They are not breathing and have no heartbeat. Now imagine you do nothing, the person will stay in the same status, dead. If however, you start CPR no matter how poorly or how excellent the CPR is by doing something you are offering the only potential they have for survival.
