    My wife is a MedSurge RN.
    CPR CAN be performed on the conscious patient. BUT, should only be performed by qualified medical persons.
    The Good Samaritan laws, ONLY cover you if the person receiving CPR is unconscious.
    Consciousness with cardiopulmonary resuscitation

    CPR is only applied to someone that is dead!

    You didn't read the link, did you.
    I think I'll take the advice of medical professionals, rather then a trucker about CPR. Thanks.

    I guess there just ain't no arguing common sense with a new ager and what he finds on the internet.

    You do not have be an EMT(though I was one long ago) to know that pounding on a living man's beating heart is a bad idea.

    I'm not disagreeing with you completely. I'm saying that it can be done. PER a practicing medical professional. MY WIFE.

    And the link was a medical professional link.

    They MIGHT know something about, what they publish.

    Question is, did you read your own link? In each instance they performed CPR on the patient, his heart had stopped.
    "Approximately 7 minutes after receiving tenecteplase the patient became unresponsive, with no pulse, and polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) was identified on the cardiac monitor. Chest compressions were immediately started and the patient was defibrillated 1 minute after cardiac arrest..."
    And the article never states the patient was conscious during CPR but refers to it as "likely episodes of consciousness." and "...some consciousness.".
    Just sayin'...
