"People are less likely to perform CPR for women than men who are experiencing cardiac arrest, according to two studies presented at the American Heart Association Resuscitation Science Symposium.
Why might this be?
Fear of inappropriate touching
Fear of being accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment
Fear of injuring a woman
Poor recognition of cardiac arrest in women
The belief that breasts make CPR more difficult
