Yes, It actually IS a matter of Life and Death.
This is a more serious post that will show you in the next 30 seconds how to delay brain damage in Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims.
The Brain Injury Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 founded by Jeffrey Dobkin to save lives.
The Brain Injury Foundation is dedicated to the prevention of brain damage caused by lack of oxygen and bloodflow to the brain. This injury is known as Hypoxic (low oxygen) Ischemic (low bloodflow) Injury, or HII. Without oxygen reaching the brain, irreversible brain damage starts to occur within 5 minutes.
The Mission of our Foundation is to save lives and prevent permanent brain damage of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims. Our Goal is to enhance the quality of life of heart attack victim, family and caregiver.
The Dobkin Technique to Delay Brain Damage
Over the past 35 years, our research of Anoxic Brain Injury has resulted in the development of an emergency time-buying procedure to delay brain damage for up to an hour when a victim stops breathing.
Named after our lead researcher Jeffrey Dobkin, The Dobkin Technique is an on-site, non-invasive trigger of the Mammalian Diving Reflex: an all natural reflex that has already saved thousands of people from brain damage in cold water drownings.
Delaying Brain Injury in Sudden Cardiac Arrest Victims
Each year over 295,000 people in the United States suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Without warning, this type of sudden heart failure completely stops all heart function and the victim stops breathing. Without oxygen, irreversible brain damage starts to occur within 3 to 5 minutes.
Less than 5% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims survive long enough to reach a hospital. Over 95% of the SCA victims die within 5 minutes.
The Dobkin Technique is an on-site emergency procedure to delay brain death of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims for up to an hour. It is not a cure for Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims, but simply delays the onset of brain injury and death until proper medical help can arrive and breathing is reinitiated.
The Dobkin Technique seeks to delay brain injury in both adults and children in all forms of events that disrupt, stop or limit oxygen flow to the brain:
• Sudden Cardiac Arrest
• Myocardial Infarction
• Heart Attack
• Sleep Apnea Death
• Drug Overdose
• Carbon Monoxide Inhalation
• Compression of Trachea
• Heart Arrhythmia
• Extreme Low Blood Pressure
• SADS (Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome)
• SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
The Brain Injury Foundation research – with your donations and support – continues into the area of prevention of ischemic brain injury of stroke victims, and to children who experience Myoclonic seizures, also referred to as infantile spasms or myoclonic jerks, the largest cause of which is an Hypoxic Ischemic Insult.
The Brain Injury Foundation continues its research of The Dobkin Technique for use in Hypoxic Ischemic Events of cerebral anoxia (a complete lack of oxygen to the brain) and all forms of cerebral hypoxia (reduced supply of oxygen to the brain): diffuse cerebral hypoxia (DCH), focal cerebral ischemia (aneurysms or hemorrhagic stroke), massive cerebral infarction (stroke), and global cerebral ischemia (complete stoppage of blood to the brain).
We continue to investigate how The Dobkin Technique may be used as an emergency procedure to delay brain damage in infants during infantile spasms, (myoclonic seizure) and SIDS. Hypoxic-Anoxic Ischemic brain injury in infants is thought to be an underlying cause of cerebral palsy, mental retardation, dysphagia, cortical vision impairment or blindness, microcephaly, chronic lung disease and seizures. There is currently no other immediate treatment for Hypoxic Ischemic Events per se, other than The Dobkin’s non-invasive procedure.
An emergency time-buying procedure to trigger the
Mammalian Diving Reflex and delay brain injury and brain death:
The Dobkin Technique:
In Emergency apply ice cold water or cold wet compress to the face and eyes of the victim. Temperature of compress must be 58 degrees or cooler. Keep cold compress on face.
Keep face cold and wet, apply until emergency personnel arrive and breathing is established. The Dobkin Technique may be used by itself, or in conjunction with CPR. It may be self administered, or the treatment may be described to a bystander, child or caregiver over the phone.
This simple procedure works immediately to trigger the Mammalian Diving Reflex and delay brain injury and brain death. This is the same reflex that delays brain damage in cold water drowning victims:
