Often the switch to telecare–technology used to help caretakers provide treatment to their patients off-site–is portrayed as either a nightmare scenario or a much needed panacea for all our healthcare woes. This widely researched study probes what happens when technologies are used to provide healthcare at a distance. Drawing on ethnographic studies of both patients and nurses involved in telecare, Jeannette Pols demonstrates that instead of resulting in less intensive care for patients, there is instead a staggering rise in the frequency of contact between nursing staff and their patients. Care at a Distance takes the theoretical framework of telecare and provides hard data about these innovative care practices, while producing an accurate portrayal of the pros and cons of telecare.http://books.google.com/books/previewlib.js

The Power to Save A Life Is in Your Hands! Personal Health Service Review: American Red Cross #CPR Training By Robelyn A. Garcia, PhD @RGPhD
Figure 1: Hands-Only CPR from www.SeniorUniversity.online
I. Experiential Summary: American Red Cross Citizen CPR (Hands-Only) Training.
Lifesaving health service provided by Senior University (SeniorUniversity.us).
A. American Red Cross Hands-Only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
B. Easy to Learn
C. No Mouth to Mouth Contact
D. Appropriate for All Ages to Perform
E. Created as a Safe Training Alternative to Adult & Pediatric CPR Certification
A. If you see a teen, adult or senior citizen suddenly collapse, hands-only CPR is the
preferred form of CPR. This will increase the likelihood of saving the life of a person
experiencing a breathing or cardiac emergency that occurs outside of a medical or
healthcare facility. Before giving Citizen CPR take the following three “C” steps:
1. CHECK – Check to make sure the scene is safe, tap the person on the shoulder
and ask if they are okay, then look for signs of normal rhythmic breathing.
2. CALL – If the victim does not respond when asked if they are okay or if they
are not breathing, call 911. You may also ask a bystander to call 911.
3. CARE – If the person is unresponsive, begin hands-only CPR compressions.
III. Consumer Advice
A. It is of utmost importance to check and confirm your American Red Cross Instructor
certifications. In the digital age of e-health and m-health this can be done very easily
at www.RedCross.org/confirm or by calling 1-800- RED-CROS.
B. Senior University American Red Cross Instructor IDs include but are not limited to:
0XX0V5, GVV7LO, 0ZB2UD, 0Z25FM; GMDR0O.

A. Become American Red Cross Trained in Hands Only Citizen CPR in 3 easy steps:

2. Watch The American Red Cross Hands-Only Citizen CPR VIDEO
3. Receive your Citizen CPR Certificate
V. Call to Action
An important aspect of health promotion is taking reasonable safety precautions;
prudent safety measures must include preparing all household members to deal with medical emergencies in one’s home or community (Barrett, 2013; Senior University, 2018). I highly recommend that adults learn Citizen CPR. Further, if you work in a healthcare, academic, or athletic setting I would also recommend becoming certified in Adult & Pediatric CPR/AED.
