Researchers analyzed over half a million births in Australia to which they concluded that the gender of the baby can be directly associated with the health of the mother and the child. Doctor Petra Verburg from the Robinson Research Institute at the University of Adelaide in Australia said that pregnancy complications and a baby’s sex are directly proportional. Baby boys stand a higher chance of being born earlier, opening avenues for health problems in their infant life.

The Depth & Rate of Chest Compressions in CPR


Date: September 25th, 2016

Depth of Compressions

During CPR, the rescuer performs chest compressions with their hands, and they use their mouths to push air into the victim’s lungs. How deep the chest compressions make a big difference in the survival rate for the victim. Each chest compression needs to be 5.5 centimeters or less to be the most effective. Compressions that are deeper than 5.5 centimeters possibly cause collaterals damages to other internal organs and impede the survival of the patient.
