7-19-11: The History of CPR in Maryland

This segment originally aired on November 8, 2011.

A simple discovery, with a profound effect.  In the early 60s, researchers in Baltimore discovered that cardiopulmonary resuscitation could prolong someone’s life long enough to get them to a medical professional.

As we look at Maryland history this week, we hear from Dr. James Jude, who was in the trenches 50 years ago developing CPR and helped get it out to the world with a training video called The Pulse of Life.  Sheilah also talks with Dr. Myron Weisfeldt, director of the department of medicine at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, about how CPR is developing — it seems in some cases, mouth to mouth resuscitation is not required —  chest compressions are enough to revive a person.
