You know you are a Red Cross instructor when you start yelling at the TV telling a character they are doing CPR wrong. You would think shows would at least have someone advise them so there characters don’t look like complete idiots. What is sad is that someone will probably emulate some technique and seriously hurt someone. For example bending the elbows during CPR and thrusting, rather than using your whole upper body. Another example would be not putting the hands in the right place. You can kill a person or seriously hurt them if you are too high or too low.If you didn’t already figure it out I am an American Red Cross instructor. I can teach any level of First Aid and CPR up to First Responder level (right below EMT). My primary area of instruction is in lifeguarding and water safety (No Running!). If you are in the St. Louis area and want some instruction at your church or school, let me know, I enjoy working with church groups!
