Yeah, and a lot of people don't actually know how rarely CPR actually works. It's always worth it to try but sometimes like only 3% or some crazy low number are actually able to be resuscitated after needing CPR. But imo you always need to try and do your best and keep that hope

A lot of family members at the hospital are also shocked when I tell them doing CPR involves breaking the ribs but after I explain to them that the whole point of cpr is to pump blood through, and our heart is like a sponge and we need to get to that sponge to squeeze , reabsorb more blood, and squeeze again, just to move things through, they finally get it.
