    CPR is an emergency action to keep the patient alive while others search for the nearest AED. In fact everyone should know where the nearest AED is.

    Basic cardiac life support (BCLS) is very very important. It saves lives.

    People should be taught how to do it properly. Return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) chance of people who have cardiac arrest and not treated ASAP (i.e. no CPR and/or AED) is decreasing fast and results in death.

    It amaze me that they react fast recognising the sign of cardiac arrest and they could do it properly. They did a very very good job saving live!

    Yeah... of course I should have also said, "...and chance of survival without either is 0%"

  2. I recently did a first aid course and the numbers don't lie: chance of survival with manual CPR: 5-7%. Chance of survival with AED: 80%. CPR is an emergency action to keep the patient alive while others search for the nearest AED. In fact everyone should know where the nearest AED is.

  3. I woud have considered middle third Makushita if there were such a choice. Because the Makushita joi is as much a meat grinder as the Makuuchi one, with hungrier and younger contestants fighting for those scant places in that tiny elevator. In the onslaught of that cauldron, he'll have to go all-out for the revival of his sekitori status. Back to the top or a career-ending injury.

    It has been done before, I know. But Terunofuji isn't going to be miraculously healed of all ills, despite of what Ajigawa can teach him that he hasn't taught him already.

  4. I started watching sumo in the Eurosport days. I saw him rise to Makuuchi and get kinboshis defeating Takanohana and Musashimaru.
    After Eurosport stopped showing the sumo highlights, I was deprived of any sumo news for thirteen years... and when I got back in 2014, I was amazed to see Aminishiki was still there in the top division... and seeing him get kinboshis still...
    Sadly, he never got a yusho like Kyokutenho did, but his career is impressive.

    Such men are truly as much legends of sumo as the ones who briefly shine as Yokozuna. 

    There is a kabu waiting for him. The future of sumo needs him... I can't wait to see what new legends his teaching will produce.

  5. Only if he feels there is too big a risk to his health will he pull out, I think.  He normally manages his injuries well. If he had been too badly incapacitated he wouldn't have entered.
    Trailing by one point after Day 9 is annoying but he hasn't lost the yusho yet. Even if Kakuryu stays undefeated till Day 15, he can still catch up.

  6. Oh wow, great fight by Aoiyama with powerful full-weight thrusts and managing to keep Hakuho off his belt. But Hakuho is a superman. It is as if he can slow time to analyze every minute opportunity that presents itself, and put himself into a position to make use of it. And down Aoiyama goes...

    You've done it now! MK for sure! ;)

    I must have jinxed myself... a horrendus Day 4 brought the average right down. Hubris! Hubris! I'll refrain from any semblance of gloating from now on.
