I hate to say this, but this seems plagarised, it goes completely off the subject and makes references to things which don't appear Matt2501 12:33, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes, this is not suitable for a wiki entry. Appears to be an undergraduate essay, containing irrelevant information, no sourcing, and a very Christian and US-centred view. Looks like someone's created the subject because the essay had been written, not the other way around. This disgusts me. What a disgusting thing. Wikipedia needs to change this ASAP. Who would do such a thing? Only someone who wishes to bring extenuating circumstances to the people of wikipedia.

Am I being dense? Where does it say what the abbreviation CPR means? 21:43, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Quite right, it doesn't say. i'll add it later if i get a moment. In terms of plagarism, I spent quite a lot of time rearranging this in to a wiki format, and i think the article should stand, but be improved by wiki editors, because teh facts are good and relevant

The CPR article has a section on history of CPR. What about redirecting this article there and editing that history section to include these references? Lateknightucd (talk) 19:51, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Please disregard the redirect mistake...I'm still getting into the swing of editing. Thanks for the info all! Lateknightucd (talk) 18:03, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm going to delete the section on Ancient History. This is a far stretch from CPR, even in terms of intertextual Biblical evidence! If someone wants to write a separate article on "medical resuscitation in ancient times", that would be preferable than resurrecting this section on an article about modren CPR!

Source for other methods[edit]

This link:

from a Czech university has some interesting information on past techniques, but i haven't got time to include them at the moment. Hopefully i'll come back to it, unless someone gets there first. OwainDavies (about)(talk) edited at 10:16, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
