Was there ever a time when it was advised to resuscitate by laying the victim on his/her belly, and pushing on his/her back? I can see where this may stir movement in the lungs, but (a) it could do equally bad damage to the spinal cord and (b) not be too productive, I WAG. I’ve seen this in cartoons*, but I just caught sight of this being the recommended method in a early 1970’s sit-com AND it implied “mouth to mouth” was a new concept at the time.
*“out with the bad air, in with the good air”…I’m sure many a SDoper has heard reference to this, in the least.
What’s the SD on this?
