We hope you've enjoyed our #DebunkFridays series! We're ending the series with a classic moment from #theoffice where the team learns #CPR with a focus on incorrect hand placement during chest compressions. It’s the opposite of a proper CPR learning session but it is very amusing nonetheless. Full clip: buff.ly/2zeVV2I

In this scene (see gif in comment section below), Michael is incorrectly performing CPR in the neck area. For proper chest compressions, the heel of one hand should be placed in the centre of the chest with the other hand on top. Interlock your fingers. Press down 5-6 cm at a rate of 100-120 compressions/min.

Welcome back to #DebunkFridays! A series where we examine representations of #CPR and #cardiacarrest in TV/film. Today we’ll be looking at #Arrow and the incorrect placement of defibrillator pads on Oliver Green.

Check out the clip in the comments section below.

In this scene, you can see one of the pads is incorrectly placed on Oliver's stomach area. Check out the graphic for the correct placement of defibrillator pads. Did you know that PADs (Public Access Defibrillators) also known as AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) will have visual instructions to guide you on pad placement should you ever need to use one.
