Women less likely to get CPR than men? Why?

Well isn’t that interesting…….Men are more likely to receive CPR than women, why?


In a New York Times article it said that men were more likely to get life saving CPR in a public place than women because of the fear of being accused of sexual harassment. The need be ‘sensitive’ about the display of a women’s breasts in the event of having to do CPR deters people from making an attempt to save a woman’s life.


Yes absolutely we need to be respectful to ANYONE we are doing CPR on, Yes we are going to preserve what modesty we can for our casualty but to NOT do CPR on a female because you will expose her breasts is outrageous. Immediate commencement of CPR can double someone’s chance of survival.
