Lou Rivett writes:

The information I gave you on recent guidelines from the Resuscitation Council was not entirely correct for the general public and although performing CPR without medical fitted masks is not safe in terms of being infected through aerosol generation of secretions from the victim, the guidelines do give suggestions of what you can do to minimise your risk, should you decide to do it. (See link in notes)

I also reflected on what I said about health care professionals not giving CPR, and realised that this would sound quite alarming and I would like to clarify that I meant without medical masks, which of course would be available in hospital. I work in the community where there is a possibility of being somewhere without access to a mask, and only in that case would we be in a position potentially not to attempt it.
