Knowing how to do CPR and rescue breathing are very important general life skills that if you don’t have, you should learn how to properly do them as soon as possible. (A friend once said that if a person loves their friends and family, they should learn CPR and rescue breathing, no ifs, ands, or buts.) Appropriate to the theme of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, it is very important to also learn how to administer CPR and rescue breathing to people who have special needs and alternative anatomy/physiology when it comes to breathing. Please watch the posted video (below) on how to administer Rescue Breathing for Laryngectomees and Neck Breathers and pass this post on! -Dr. Blum
