Dog Gives CPR

Pancho, a Spanish police dog has shown that he may be capable of saving lives. A video of the dog, who works for Municipal Police of Madrid, has gone viral. The video shows him giving chest compressions to a fellow officer with his paws and feeling the officer's neck for a pulse. Pancho isn't capable of providing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, but he is attentive and careful.  
Dogs have been credited with saving lives with CPR before. It may valuable to give all dogs CPR training. CPR is also known as BLS or BCLS, short for basic life support and basic cardiac life support. For now, though, an easier way to ensure that lives can be saved is for everyone to have CPR certification or BLS certification. www.CPRTrainingFast.com offers these courses, as well as ACLS certification online, training materials, and free prep tests.  
The training materials included at www.CPRTrainingFast.com include algorithms, practice tests, videos, and other instructional materials. Anybody can obtain the knowledge necessary to provide basic or advanced cardiac life support to those in need quickly and easily.  
Much like Pancho, those who take online certification courses with www.CPRTrainingFast.com will be prepared to quickly spring into action and offer crucial life support when needed.

Study Reveals new Danger from E-Cigarette Flavorings

Electronic cigarettes, commonly known as e-cigs or vapes are a new and developing technology, yet little is known about the medical risk they pose to users. A new study offers insight into the effects of e-cigs. The flavoring used in nicotine juices may pose a risk to blood vessels and the cells within the heart. Although e-cigarettes were originally marketed as a cleaner alternative to smoking or a tool to help smokers quit, “They have also gained popularity among young people. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there was an increase in middle and high school students using e-cigarettes from 2011 to 2016.” Ultimately, the study concluded that, “Our work and prior research have provided evidence that flavorings induce toxicity in the lung and cardiovascular systems. Flavorings are also a driver of youth tobacco use and sustained tobacco use among smokers." Due to the cardiovascular damage that e-cigs cause, it is recommended that medical professio…

Stop Taking That Aspirin You Were Told To Take

Taking a low-dose aspirin every day to prevent a heart attack or stroke is no longer recommended for most older adults, according to guidelines released Sunday.  After doctors said for decades that a daily 75 to 100 milligrams of aspirin could prevent cardiovascular problems, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association reversed that idea.  A large clinical trial found a daily low-dose aspirin had no effect on prolonging life in healthy, elderly people and actually suggested the pills could be linked to major hemorrhages.
Sunday's recommendations say low-dose aspirin should not be given to prevent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease on a routine basis to adults older than 70 or any adult at an increased risk of bleeding.  “Clinicians should be very selective in prescribing aspirin for people without known cardiovascular disease,” cardiologist Roger Blumenthal said in a statement. "It’s much more important to optimize lifestyle habits and control bl…
