Yeah well the main purpose of resuscitation is to maintain perfusion to the brain. You don't even start with breaths anymore, just get right on the chest and start compressing. [quote]
Which reminds me that an ambulance driver said that too, and added that mouth-to-mouth is strictly a supportive measure, and that the 'blow into his mouth then he coughs up water and immediately wakes up' only happens in movies. So we shouldn't expect to see any immediate 'results', as it were.
