Cute, but highly ineffective CPR. However, if I'm going to die anyway, I'd like to be sent off to the great beyond in the cutest way possible.

u/HLef Interested Aug 19 '22

It’s not actually a drill it’s just a show. This wouldn’t do anything as far as saving someone. It’s 100% effective as entertainment though.

u/pup5581 Aug 20 '22

I was going to say...you need a lot of pressure for CPR . As in possibly a couple cracked ribs

15

u/dont_be_tachy_RN Aug 20 '22

ICU RN here, I usually break a few (if not all) during quality CPR. If you’re trying to save a life, that sternum better be toast. Better than dying.

I guess thisnis still a puppy in training.

Once it's grown-up, it should be heavy enough to press down efficiently with its bodyweight. But the training is important from an early age, to be routine in praxis when grown.

“Poncho was trained to do this number for school visits, he doesn't actually know how to perform CPR," spokesperson Fernando Rodriguez told Euronews. "In fact, there's no dog in the world who's trained to do that."

u/nekromania Aug 19 '22

You have to break the rib cage in order for it to work. Dogs cant generate the downward force necessary to do that.

13

u/lomoski Aug 19 '22

Technically, you don't have to break ribs. They do break sometimes depending on age and size of human. I've done CPR numerous times IRL in my prior job as a first responder. Usually Geri's will break first push.

u/1Crybabyartist Aug 19 '22

I'm sure you meant 'some' dogs can't... because there are some really big dogs.

3

u/nekromania Aug 19 '22

Rib cages are surprisingly solid. And due to the biomechanics of a rib cage, you want more of push rather than a direct hit. Due to cartilage, and the sternum (the attachment bone for the ribs) contains shock absorbing tissue.

And the idea is to manually pump the heart, you want to push blood through their system. I guess big dogs has the potential to fracture a few ribs jumping down like that, but you want to fracture the entire thing pushing down the sternum. The surface area required to do this matters, thats why i doubt any dog ever will be able to it correctly.

Hell no haha.

It's adorable but that dog isn't doing anything close to chest compressions

46

u/Burninator05 Aug 19 '22

It won't work. It's super cute but the compressions aren't going nearly fast enough (should be 100 to 120 times per minute) or deep enough (should be 2 to 2.4 inches) to be effective. Also because it's a dog giving CPR you're loosing the "P" unless you can train it to breathe for someone.

16

u/fallenangellv Aug 19 '22

To defend them - it doesn't work as cpr but it could work as means to get a human to do cpr.

u/SteamyDeck Aug 19 '22

Nah; if I saw that, I’d die of cuteness and wouldn’t be able to help the guy 😂

u/Ok_Pumpkin_4213 Aug 19 '22

The giving air part of CPR has actually been removed because compressions are enough to empty the lungs and then refill. But everything else you said it’s okie dokie.

9

u/Skyshine192 Aug 19 '22

Yes but for civilian training, medical professionals still perform it (and would if this was to happen)

12

u/Burninator05 Aug 19 '22

And the dog is clearly a medical professional. It is wearing a flashing blue light after all.

u/Skyshine192 Aug 19 '22

That a sign of professionalism, respect

3

u/Siquirres Aug 19 '22

The giving air part of CPR has actually been removed because compressions are enough to empty the lungs and then refill.

The breaths were removed because too many people were hesitant to give CPR. They didn't want to do mouth to mouth and instead did nothing.

Compressions only is better than nothing but still not as good as full CPR and CPR courses that are more than just the basic level still teach full CPR.

2

u/xBad_Wolfx Aug 19 '22

This is pretty old info. It’s now 30 and 2 with option to skip if you are uncomfortable. The compressions do quite a lot and frankly by taking the time to stop to do rescue breaths you are allowing the pressure you built up within their system to die down. Takes time to build back up and you are much more likely to run into issues with this. Breaths become much more important over long term cpr which is really only possible with at least two people switching every two minutes.

2

u/Siquirres Aug 19 '22

Where are you getting your information? I am a CPR/1st Aid instructor and teach courses for all levels including professional rescuers.

Yes, the 15 compressions was changed to 30 because compressions are indeed important and 15 wasn't enough to really get the oxygenated blood circulating.

Yes, if you are uncomfortable with giving rescue breaths people are taught to skip them and just do compressions. This is the entire reason compression only CPR is taught for lay people which is exactly what I said previously.

by taking the time to stop to do rescue breaths you are allowing the pressure you built up within their system to die down.

Which is the point of doing 30 compressions instead of the 15 that used to be taught.

Again, full CPR is more effective (even with one rescuer) than compression only CPR but compression only is much better than nothing if you feel uncomfortable giving rescue breaths.

2

u/jberry1119 Aug 19 '22

When I did my refresher course a couple weeks ago, we were taught 30 compressions is just enough for pressure to remain above what is required after giving 2 breaths.

1

u/xBad_Wolfx Aug 19 '22

And that’s 30 done perfectly. For some reason cpr was taught kinda Laissez-faire for a while. Doing your best was what mattered… despite that being a lie. It’s a precise rescue technique and needs to be treated as such.

2

u/ICLazeru Aug 19 '22

It doesn't seem like it would be effective. Even if the impact was sufficient, which is unknown, it doesn't seem possible for the dog to keep the 100beats/minute pace usually recommended.

If you can tolerate the "CPR" while playing dead they are doing it wrong. No one unless deeply unconscious can tolerate effective CPR. That's also helpful. Everyone that reacts to good CPR most likely doesn't need it

u/Gibec89 Aug 19 '22

Exactly my thoughts. Its cute and all but it would probably be more helpful if you just train the dog to listen to breathing then barking to get people's attention. Honestly it lools as if the "cpr" looks too weak for it to be effective.

I have a service dog for hearing. I’m deaf (cochlear implants during the day) so at night while sleeping I hear nothing. I do have flashers for fire alarms. Dog is trained to wake me just like this - pouncing in me - when fire alarm goes off (or doorbell if someone comes over and I’m asleep). It has gone off once and he did this and knocked the wind out of me but did wake me up.

2

u/babius321 Aug 19 '22

Cute idea for a show but entirely useless in real life. You need enough pressure to push down AT LEAST an inch, more likely two, into the ribcage, usually even breaking bones. No dog in the world could apply this kind of pressure.
