In 4 months time i would be lisenced to practise as an accident and emergency nurse in nigeria,i have neva seen procedures like intubation,ekg machine,defibrilator except in movies like house,er,scrubs
,greys anatomy. While i dont mean to demean nigerian health standards,i nid anyone,sombody to answer this case scenerio 'a patient suddenly stops breathing,no pulse felt,cpr is started. what are the chances that the patient would b revived with only CPR when we dont have a cardioverter or defibrillator?
,cos over here we continue cpr till we get exhausted and seriously since i enrolled into the a&e programm,we hav neva revived any patients,also bear in mind we dont have access to ecg,or ekg machines,we dont even know the rhtym.
