Actually y gave heart massage to my father, then 65 years old. He fell back on the kitchen floor after coming back from an errand in very cold weather. He was a pretty hue of violet. I massaged him strongly and got his heartbeat back, and then called the ambulance. He lived 7 years after that. Funny, when he came back from th hospital, he complained to the doctor, because he felt a pint in the chest. The doctor laughed and said: "That`s not your heart, that's the rib dislodged from the sternum thanks to yor son's strong massage...:

I agree with, buhlemann. Several of the answers are controversial in that circumstances may dictate what you decide to do. CPR is straightforward. Seizures is another situation that depends on the condition of the individual. If they are choking on vomitus they need to be turned on their side to maintain an airway. 911 would need to be called first rather than trying to manage the situation alone. It has been several years now that the compression to breath ratio is 30/2 to the rhythm of the Bee Gee's "Stayin' Alive! CPR rules are chaning and reviewed often to improve chances of a good outcome. With Automatic Defibrillator units available in many locations, there are more people who survive a cardiac event.

Blanche Templar, Back blows are only for full airway occlusion. In USA it is so different to Australia. Heimlich is not used. We do chest thrusts.

Donald McBurney, Always hit them on the back if it' a full blockage. Get them to cough themselves if it's not.

Blanche Templar, you need to do a refresher. Nobody teaches the Heimlich anymore - except TV shows.

Always cool a burn with running water. Anything bigger than a quarter is a significant burn.

several of these answers are controversial, or depend on the circumstances. For example, restraining someone who is having a seizure is not usually a good idea, but if they are in danger of hurting themselves on their surroundings or inhaling vomitus, they should be moved, or eased into another position.

I really think that someone should revisit these answers as they are wrong in most cases.
