Default CPR sucks

especially when you do it on your BIL of 52 years of age.....I arrived and the EMT,s were worn out and I took over, 20 minutes went by quick, but my damn ass is worn out.......sad to say BIL didnt make it, I will be spreading his ashes on his hunting grounds........if you dont know CPR please learn, you never know when you will get the call.......The look on the 21 yr old female EMT was relieving for her, she had sweat pouring off, as she had been doing compressions forever......I took control, and told them to "roll" .....he was DOA and and I knew it, but you cant stop.!

Wow, that's young. My thoughts are with you and your sister. Hopefully no one will ask for pictures of the sister.

Being somewhat out of shape this is strange to me. As a first responder they should know to rotate positions as necessary to prevent fatigue. They should also be able to coach a newb, if necessary, to perform if needed.
Success rate is sometimes dismal. Some things you just can't overcome.

Tough work, 20 years of rescue work and always managed to busy myself with other parts of the scene and have never had to do CPR.... really don't want to do CPR. Been around an awful lot of that stuff and with a little luck I'm done.
Don't go and try to man up and hold it all in, you need some good support to get through a bunch of emotions in a timely manner.

Had to do it on my BIL, same outcome. Not an easy thing to put behind you. Take your time and work your way through it. The only advice I can give is that time passing helps and you know that you did all you could do.

So sorry about your BIL.
Only had to do cpr in training. 5 minutes is tough enough.
At least you tried your best.
I have to agree that if it is your time to go, that is a good way to go.

Sorry about your loss Bluff. Ive done cpr once, my patner and I worked him for 20 minutes and it kicked our ass. Same result too, cpr has a very, very low success rate. Good mojo sent to your sister

They do emphasize in the classes that doing CPR will wear you out. I admire your at least giving it your best effort.
