  • For the guy that asked the helium question, if you are breathing it in for a quick 5 to 10-second gag, that's fine. People hold their breath longer than that. Helium is non-reactive so it will not create a chemical reaction in your lungs. Now, you don't want to be in a room full of helium or put your head in a helium bag or something as you need oxygen to successfully respirate. You'd die if helium fully displaces all breathable air.

  • In Poland we have classed in secondary and upper secondary school that teaches us how to perform CPR on adults, children and babies, use AED, check on someone that fainted for injures, if someone has some part of they body amputated how to help before ambulance gets there and more. Because we get that type of education there is law or laws that say that we have to help and perform CPR if needed and if someone doesn't remember what to do they just need to call emergency number and they will guide you what you need to do. If we don't help we can get charged for not helping, of course we can't perform professional surgery like tracheostomy but we still must help in any way we can and are allowed to by law. Everyone has this lessons finished in Poland we can't only leave school if we are 18 years old it's like second/third year of upper secondary school. That why everyone must follow the law that says we are obligated to help.

  • not sure if somebody already answered this it's because when scientists would place a piece of gum in the hydrochloric acid similar to that in the stomach they found it took roughly about 7 years for it to be fully dissolved not thinking about the other way food is absorbed into your body.

  • I know this is late, but... You cannot be sued for CPR under normal circumstances. You don't need any training or education to attempt CPR. You cannot be sued. You could have a very loose idea how CPR should work and as long as it's not heinously off, you cannot be sued. If someone who has some training or is a medical expert comes along, give them the floor. But their heart has stopped. They are already dead. You can't make the situation much worse.

  • Hi... any possible suggestions on what this might be...? Pain 2 inches to the right of the navel. From this mark, pain is felt 4 inches above and two inches below. Pt has a history of Crohn's (stable), illeoctomy and reversal 7 years prior to this date, chronic diarrhea due to illeoctomy, almost every food and drink sensitivity/IBS (however, tolerated by intake of loperamide 16mg per day), history of Bartholomian cysts and fistula (recto-vaginal area). Pain seems to be more noticeable after last recto-vaginal cyst was removed -- 2 months ago. Cysts reoccur and drainage can be felt --at times -- as if it was leaking in the inside and down towards legs. The primary concern (pain to the right of the navel seems to be linked to food not tolerated well and perhaps made worse with intake of imodium, which causes cysts to swell almost instantly. It causes pain in right leg all the way down to sole of right foot as well as pain to the right of the navel.

  • Hi Dr Mike, Is there a medical explanation for the following; whenever I finish warming up let's say 10-13min into a warm up I start to yawn! It is really awkward and I cannot influence it. I must yawn. Now this might look to the Hiit instructor as I am not taking the class seriously enough. This is not true the fact is it is happening every time I am getting into the "warmed up ready to work" zone. Really annoying and I wish there would be an explanation why it is happening ....
