Iain

I performed one handed CPR in a moving ambulance on a number of occasions
when I was a student on an elective with the Scottish Ambulance Service.

I have no idea what the oficial SAS policy on this is, but when I was there
there were always two of us in the back so one compressed the bag while the
other did one handed CPR.  The second hand was used for holding on to the
vehicle!  I assume if done by one person one hand does CPR and squeezes the
bag while the other is used to hold on.

I have to say I havn't done it for a while as the only out of hospital
arrests I've had over the last few years I've either got back a spontaneous
circulation or I've called at the scene.\

Doing CPR on the move with lights and sirens is very dangerous for the crew,
which is why I'm keen to see as few people transported in arrest as
possible.
