also CPR without an AED has a very low success rate. The number i remember from my training is 19%.

She was 87 years old, sometimes we need to say her time had come. CPR isn't exactly a massage, you`re cracking ribs and possibly breaking them. On a frail old lady, it`s possible you make her last moments extremely painful. And if it worked? How much longer would she have? It`s not like she had her whole life ahead of her.

Now, if it was anyone young, I would be pissed. If we put age on sliding scale to determine wrongness of inaction, this woman is on the end of not terribly wrong in my book.

Understand this CPR is successful less then 30% of times even when administered by trained professionals.

The number I last saw was that it was successful less than 5% of the time for elderly people with multiple medical problems.

I did it for 10 years and I still remember the first time someone coded on me....now I work in a dentist office and of course I don't see codes like that anymore...but when I worked the floor when someone passed or coded, it was go time..The dentist office is still fast paced and busy but a differant type of fast paced and busy..I love this type of work.

@pinkminx22 - if you're still getting that rush you haven`t done it long enough. It`ll pass.
