Hyperventilation may have several names such as, rapid deep breathing, over-breathing, excessive breathing or fast deep breathing, but in the end it simply means to breath more than necessary. When you breathe you inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Excessive breathing may lead to lower levels of carbon dioxide in your blood. This imbalance in the blood can cause hyperventilation syndrome. Though in most cases it is not life threatening, it can be very scary which leads to increased anxiety, which makes the situation worse.

Staph is a common bacteria which about a third of the population carriers with no ill effects. Most of the time this bacteria is harmless, unless it enters the body through a cut or other wound. Even then it may only cause minor skin problems, but with older adults, young children and people with compromised immune systems, this infection can cause serious problems. Many times if MRSA was not diagnosed early or treatment was delayed, the infection could become fatal. In fact, more people die from MRSA than from AIDS.

If you’ve been trained in CPR, the choice is obvious: Ask someone to call for help and find an AED, if possible, and then immediately begin chest compressions. The problem is that many people who are not trained in CPR will simply stand by and wait for emergency services to arrive – therefore losing critical time instead of delivering life-saving compressions.
