And as I have learned:
  1. It is highly unlikely the person will be revived and up and running after CPR, but most important,
  1. there is no tongue involved in real CPR

good advice on remaining calm and not having the potentially injured person move around due to the chance of messing something up even worse (i.e. paralysis). what is strange is the last cpr/first aid class i took, i can't recall the trainer mentioning to not move an unconscious person unless if they're in harms way (i.e. knocked out in the middle of traffic).

I have been a Paramedic for over 20 years so yea its sound but getting too involved. It will get someone in trouble
true. even cpr practices change over time. for example, the 2nd to last cpr class i took was probably 10 years ago, which taught chest compressions and breathing. the last cpr class i took 2 years ago taught breaths were optional and to focus on chest compressions if you're not comfortable breathing into someone else.
