IMO, it must not be too problemental, or the parents would not be wishing to leave her while they go out, no? I agree with the first poster, get educated on Pediatric CPR. They may have shared this information with you just in passing, or it may be problematic. The only way to know for sure is to talk to her parents, or have her parents and your parents get together and make sure it's a good match. I mean, my grandmother is 89 and has congestive heart failure, and now that she's stable, it's not problematic in the least. Best of luck!

Hi, my daughter who has just turned 16 has complained about having chest pain while playing soccer today and asked us to take her to the Doctors - like her heart is really straining and about to explode. Also feeling nauseous. Symptoms did improve when she stopped playing. However she now says this has been happening for a couple of months now. She is also having trouble regulating her body temperature and seems to be too hot or too cold - sleeps with nine blankets on her bed and always has cold hands and feet. I am going to make an appoitnment with our GP but would appreciate your thoughts. In December she did get horribly drunk on her Father s Rakia - very high alcohol content. We came home to find her barely/not breathing, her Father had to do CPR while we waited for an ambulance. When they arrived one of the ambulance drivers also rubbed her chest to stimulate her heart. She was given an all clear from the hosipital later that night but I am worried that this may have caused some damage. Thanks

Hi, this may be a strange question, i am trying to understand what happened with a recent situation involving a family member, the person had no symptoms befor ethe incident, she started to fit, slight foaming at the mouth and long deep, slow breaths, 4 breaths before they stopped, i commenced cpr however this failed as the person died, basically im just trying to figure out what caused the fitting, as nobody at the hospital could tell me y and the post mortem came back as ischaemic heart disease due to her long standing history,but was there another factor that could have been overlooked?
