Life-Saving, A One-Man Operation (Sep, 1936)

Life-Saving, A One-Man Operation

AMONG the many exhibits on display recently at the Salon Nautique, Paris, was the latest in life-saving apparatus.

Where formerly it required the aid of two men to complete the job of artificial respiration, the new apparatus needs only one man to resuscitate the water victim. The operator straps the bellows beneath the unconscious man’s chest, lays him face downward, adjusts the head-rest to align the windpipe, then rocks the handle of the respirator.

    Wow. I wonder how gutted people who bought this were when they discovered CPR.
