RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- A scary question indeed. We're not talking about the decision made by a bystander to intervene with CPR or First Aid, or even the Emergency Room physician who determines your course of care. We are talking about the people who do the education, training and research and help to write the Guidelines that are used to save your life. Most research makes the average person's head ache with scientific terms and medical language we don't understand and certainly won't read. We simply want the life saving benefit of all their efforts.
There's nothing wrong with that, after all, that's what the scientists and engineers are getting paid for, right? Wrong! The world's leader in critical care medicine research since 1955 is a non-profit education and research organization that relies on the charity of, guess who? The public. Surprised? The Weil Institute of Critical Care Medicine, located in Rancho Mirage, California, is home to a brilliant staff of physicians and engineers dedicated to the saving of lives. They conduct the hours of painstaking research and present and publish their findings within the medical community ... articles that most of us will never read, yet we all reap the benefits of them. Their work saves millions of lives around the world each and every year. Amazingly, this is accomplished by a non-profit organization - an organization that needs our help.
The Weil Institute has touched us all in one way, shape, manner or form
in our lifetime. If you know someone saved by CPR, they wrote the
Guidelines; if you know a heart attack or stroke victim, the Institute
conducted the research to make the saving of that life possible; if a
future victim has an improved quality of life after suffering sudden
cardiac arrest, you can bet the Weil Institute of Critical Care Medicine
could ultimately take the credit. They won't. This outstanding organization
is fueled by a passion to save lives, not by public
