Just a small touch!!!

It is amazing how a sternum rubs can bring a person back to life when they are on the brink of death!!! Had three unresponsive, 2 from the jail, who just would not respond at all to gentle shaking, nor talking to them. One appeared not to be breathing (holding breath). One little rub and they are good as new!!!

My question is, do people really think we are that stupid? What is the sense in playing possum????


  1. I love doing a sternum rub to save someone from the dark side! I've had to use it on my husband a time or two (after a night of drinking when he forgot to breathe), and it worked wonders!

  2. Nail bed pressure also works. It's amazing how patients from the jail often suddenly recover!

  3. Nail bed is great, but just not as satisfying!
