Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...My Father-in-law survived a heart attack 4 years ago and was saved by CPR. He then had a pacemaker put in and has gone off three times over the years but generally is in good health. What is the average lifespan after CPR? Thanks

Have you ever performed CPR on a real person? What was the outcome? I performed CPR on my colleague who collapsed in the office. We were from different department and when I got to his office, his face was purple and his mouth and eyes were open. There was no pulse or breathing. No one else was first-aid trained so I had to do it. It looked like he was already gone but nevertheless I did the CPR. I remembered the steps very clearly eventhough my First-Aid cert had expired for about 1 year. After a while, the paramedics and doctor arrived. Unfortunately he didn t make it in the end.

I scraped my knee on a hiking trail 2 days ago. The trail has lots of dirt and tiny rocks. I cleaned it with a cleaning wipe from a first aid kit then put a bandage on it temporarily. That same day i went into a hot tub, without a bandage over my wound. Today, I took a bath and after i got out, it started forming some sort of scab with yellow spots. It is also red around the wound and looks a little bit swollen. Should i be concerned? Is my knee infected?

I fell and hit my leg right below my knee a week ago. The boney area is still extremely painful to the touch and the surrounding area is numb. Only a slight bruise exists. It doesn t seem to be getting eirher better or worse. Not sure if I should seek medical attention or just give it time to heal. It is not affecting me when I walk, it is just very sensitive to touch.
