Women are less likely than men to receive CPR from a bystander and more likely to die, a new study suggests.
Researchers believe it might be down to a general reluctance to touch a woman’s chest and move clothing out of the way for better access.
Only 39 percent of women suffering cardiac arrest in a public place were given CPR versus 45 percent of men, and men were 23 percent more likely to survive, the study found.
It involved nearly 20,000 cases around the country and is the first to examine gender differences in receiving heart help from the public versus professional responders.
Se virem uma mulher a precisar de CPR na rua, corram… na outra direção. Afinal, hoje simplesmente dar um beijo já pode ser considerado “violação”. Não é só a Bela Adormecida que hoje não seria salva (more) , são mulheres reais. Parabéns feministas.
