Peak 2018? Men Refuse To Give CPR Because Of #MeToo Movement

People talk a lot on social media and blogs and in comments about Peak 2018. And there always seems to be something the following week, day, or even hour that is more peak. We might have an actual contender for true Peak 2018, especially since we are closing in on the end of the year

Men now afraid to give women CPR in fear of being accused of sexual assault and #MeToo

An article on Yahoo stated that researcher had surveyed people regarding CPR and their attitude when it comes to giving women CPR. The researchers, from the University of Colorado, had reported that many of the interviewees stated they feared giving a woman CPR because they would not want to be accused of touching them inappropriately or accused of sexual assault.

This is not good news for a woman who might suffer a heart attack or any other medical issue and require CPR on the spot to save them. Some call this the side effect of the #MeToo movement.

The Yahoo article stated, “Men were twice as likely to cite this fear as a reason for not administering CPR, the researchers found.”

Study lead author Sarah Perman of the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, said: ‘The consequences of all of these major themes is that women will potentially receive no CPR or delays in initiation of CPR.

It doesn’t get any worse than this, does it? Especially since women are also afraid to give CPR to women lest they be accused of inappropriate touching, as the article notes

The real fear is that the accusation alone could ruin someone’s life, because even after someone is proven innocent, the damages are already done.

When the accusations fly, the media covers them heavily. When the result is that the accused is proven innocent, there is little fanfare, and brings up the old saying “where do I go to get my reputation back?” It’s entirely too easy nowadays to make an accusation on some Internet platform, once which is one-sided and gets tons of likes and traction. But are often false or blown up from an anthill to Mt. Everest.

And the #MeToo 3rd Wave feminists have no one to blame but themselves.

    What kind of person would let a woman die because they were afraid of being accused of sexual assault?

    A separate study, which surveyed 54 adults, turned up some possible explanations.

    Respondents said bystanders may worry about hurting a woman while doing CPR chest compressions — or fear being accused of sexual assault. Some said people also might believe women’s breasts get in the way of CPR.

    The respondents also cited a long-standing misconception: Women are less likely to have heart problems than men.

      What kind of person would try to destroy a good and honorable man’s life and family with false accusations of sexual assault?

      Every state has passed a ‘Good Samaritan’ law to protect rescuers from liability in situations such as these, even if their rescue attempts do more harm than good. However, no one can know what some stupid jury led on by an ambulance chaser screaming “Cash! Cash! Cash!” will do — and even if the respondent wins, there are legal fees involved — nor is everybody aware of such laws.

      Jeffery loved it when the Lefties tried to crucify Brother Bret.

      Now it’s payback time, and we all know what payback is.

      Bitch.

      Women are less likely to have heart problems than men.

      Guess again, sweetie. Since the feminuts convinced them to leave the home, women are catching up. Bigly.

      PS A separate study, which surveyed 54 adults, turned up some possible explanations.

      54? Out of a nation of 330 million? I’ll buy that in a heartbeat.

  2. Jethro says:

    It seems unlikely that many men seriously worry much about being accused of sexual assault while performing CPR. If the person dies, who’s going to make the charge? If they live, who would take a charge seriously?

    This is just another nothing burger dredged up by some men to justify their oppression of all women. Typical.

    In a sample of 54 men questioned, “some” gave this as a reason. Right wing men seized on this to slam the MeToo movement. Yawn.

    Men in Hollywood, music, sports, business, politics and everywhere else have routinely oppressed and harassed women, and you blame the MeToo movement for women dying of cardiac arrest based on an unscientific survey?

    If you saw a woman having an apparent cardiac arrest (and you were trained), would you hesitate for fear of being accused of touching her breasts??? Really?

    • formwiz says:

      A lot of doctors and nurses won’t assist unless assigned.

      Too afraid of malpractice suits.

      Now you have this.

  3. david7134 says:

    Current ACLS recommendations do not call for mouth to mouth resuscitation, only pre-cordial compression. Only give air via a bag. The reason for this is that the air really does little to increase O2 concentrations and the possibility of contract a disease is high.

  4. david7134 says:

    One final factor is that any arrest that is not observed by medical personnel is associated with extremely poor recovery rates and most often results is a lingering death, very bad.

  5. What makes this funny is that when you do CPR right, you ALWAYS break ribs. So, you weren’t afraid of breaking a woman’s ribs, but you don’t want to inappropriately touch her? How does this make any sense? Maybe if you just get her consent first. Oh, but if she is unconscious, then she is incapable of giving consent. Sorry, bitch. You have to die. We didn’t make the rules.

  6. Some Hillbilly in St Louis says:

    They surveyed 54 people? Likely none of those people have a CPR cert. Every CPR course I’ve ever been to, and I have to take a refresher every year for work, covers the good Samaritan laws and implied consent. If someone is unconscious there is implied consent to be assisted to the level of your training. Simply stated don’t attempt a steak knife tracheotomy because you saw it on an episode of MASH, it looked totes easy, and it might help.

  7. Dan says:

    The rule of unintended consequences. Realistically CPR performed on anyone other than those suffering from drowning or electric shock RARELY saves a life. I think the long term survival rate for CPR patients post cardiac/respiratory arrest is on the order of 5-10%.
