    That's the problem. If there was a 'demand' for courses and equipment, there would probably be ready supply. Even those within the health care industry can tell you to 'dun care' and live a life of apathy!!!

    Actually it has gotten paranoid and the practice is getting less practice due to AIDS. In fact like in the States you find they don't use mouth to mouth but a special large Rubber bulb like the one you use to blow air on your lens to clear the dust. This is placed over the mouth of the patient and by squeezing the rubber bulb, air is injected into the person's lungs. Intermitten with chest pumping with your closed hands at the sternum.

    If you don't have one of these..no one dares to do mouth to mouth "bare" ( nor will insurance cover it if you get infect this way) and if they have no glove they might not even dare to touch you..especially if you are bleeding. ( Yes I have glove in my kit too but it is not because I am afraid but for hygiene sake)

    That is the state of affair at times. Fear. It is bad as ignorance too.

    Blind, ignorent fear has probably caused more grief in all areas of life than anyone can imagine. Gee, it's almost like as if the more we progress, the more we move back towards the dark ages.

    There was also a membrane diaphragm developed to protect the person administering CPR but I guess that's not available as well.

    We all have to weight the factors involved, but the difference is, some actually go and look for viable ways to help ... what about the remaining 99.9999999999% of our lovely, graceful and caring people that have been so well nurtured and engineered?

The sad part is there are more con job then the real thing. Harden your heart? No need lah. You just have to outsmart them. They will get what's coming to them one day.
    I did exactly that to a 'old and weak' person who had been 'heartlessly abandoned by her son'.

    Unfortunately, realised from the neighbourhood kopitiam folks that this old woman 'isn't that simple'. Her son is anything but 'heartless' and gives her a substantial allowance apparently.

    People like these, well, say the truth, I'd rather see these people die.

    This is a town where there are people who own cars and still don't know how to properly change a tire or fix very basic things to a car. You want someone like that to mess with a person dying from cardiac arrest?

    Yes we are well nurtured and engineered. For self preservation. heh. Some will not help others and then you have others who help themselves with your wallet by doing a con job on the street corner hehe.. How many are left in between? I hope there will still be enough of them around.

    This is true but in Spore law does not support Euthanasia (literally "good death" in Ancient Greek) refers to the practice of ending a life in a painless manner.)

    I support the AMD by Spore but not many people in spore have heard of AMD act.

    Well dying is not a choice in our own hands in spore

    Advanced Medical Directive is not Euthanasia. Perhaps u'd might wanna address this in your post.

    Frankly speaking, I support AMD as well and if I have to breathe by the Iron Lung just to keep this thing called 'blood' coursing thru my veins in await for a so-called 'miracle' (but lets face it, reality and drama differs), I'd rather be realistic and order the Doctor way beforehand to just turn the machine off so that I can move on ('to the light' or 'report down there with the guards' whatever one believes).

    Dying by our own hands is a choice in Singapore and anywhere and even if Euthanasia is not available, human beings still seek all manners of suicide (smoking, alcohol, stopping crushing steel trains with their bodies or testing the solidity of the Earth with their heads). The state legislates suicide as an offence and is pro-life but there is only so much man-made laws can do to curb the perversion of one's mind in a deranged state.

    I support AMD. When you suffer, the society, your friends and especailly your family members suffer together with you!

    I do agree with you that people are "still seek all manners of suicide (smoking, alcohol, stopping crushing steel trains with their bodies" especially smoking....what annoys me most is some people just smoke anywhere they like....most time i need to shift my table to avoid the 2nd hand smoke. Hey i don't mind people smoking but pls smoke in a considerate place like the yellow box provided...

    Still the 2nd hand smoke we inhale is more deadly....so well lets die together
