The arm or leg is most the susceptible area and a break occurs most often in men under 45 or women over 45 years of age. The reasons are that there are more men in sports and physical labor jobs.

first aid kit locations

Every individual must be trained in first aid(CPR)..it can save one Life..do u agree?

A: I have to very strongly disagree. As a paramedic I have been in a position to "save a life" with CPR on numerous occasions. This includes not only CPR but a high tech airway, drugs and a defibrillator. I have NEVER saved a life in the field. I have witnessed a save in the ER when all this high tech treatment was applied immediately and under the right circumstances but that was on a single occasion. Check the statistics. Only 2% of heart attack victims are saved by CPR and when they are it is usually because the heart stopped as the result of an outside force and not from heart disease. The patient also is in a younger healthier age group. Sorry, but this whole CPR thing is a lot of hype. An don''t be fooled with the AED thing either. It only works for certain conditions and...
