What are the most serious problems with CPR?

FROM 10,000 feet:
1. We're not focusing on training the people who most need to be trained. The people most likely to need to perform CPR are about the same age as - and live alone with - the victim.
2. The technique most commonly taught is something that the vast majority cannot perform for ten minutes.
3. Many of the people who will be called upon to perform CPR weigh too little to perform 2" chest compression on a chest of average stiffness.
4. Even with free instruction, many people who need to know won't take the time to learn.
