Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions often with artificial ventilation in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest. It is recommended in those who are unresponsive with no breathing or abnormal breathing, for example, agonal respirations
THE IDEA OF THE GOOD SAMARITANIN INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS
‘So many treaties have been concluded with the aim of killing people. We would greet with deep gratitude treaties with the aim of making people live’. Thus wrote the national economist Jérome Blanqui in 1839.
International law has undergone fundamental changes since. It is still used to decide on questions of war and peace and to justify violence against people,for instance in the case of self-defence or in the case of so-called humanitarian interventions. But it also serves as an instrument to guarantee basic freedoms and a minimum subsistence level to everyone; as envisaged by Blanqui in the 19th century the international law of the 21st century is used‘to make people live’. It was the elaboration of international human rights treaties after World War II that brought about a shift in the perspective.Whereas in classical international law the human being was something like an ‘object’ in the relations between the States – it was dealt with, but con-demned to be passive –, in modern international law the human being has moved to the centre. The individual destiny matters. But does that mean that international law also reflects values similar to those of the social doctrine of the Catholic Church? Is the idea of the Good Samaritan also part of the conception of international human rights?
10 clock hour course in the essential steps and functions of CPR. A review of Samaritan Laws.
All around the world, acutely ill and injured people seek care every
day. Frontline providers manage children and adults with medical,
surgical and obstetric emergencies, including injuries and infections,
heart attacks and strokes, asthma and acute complications of pregnancy.
Prioritising an integrated approach to early recognition and
resuscitation reduces the impact of all of these conditions.
Since the 11th century, St. John’s Emergency, Trauma and Acute Care online course is dedicated to strengthening the emergency care systems that serve as the first point of contact with the health system for so much of the world, and to supporting the development of quality, timely emergency care accessible to all.
VITAL SCREENING SKILLS (For Vitalists)
As a ‘vitalist’ - one who believes in vitalism, we preach and teach that the best possible health is obtained by recognizing the early signs of chronic disease and take common sense measures for prevention.
The VITALIST SCREENING SERVICES was developed to fill two of the greatest needs of the people, with relief for alternative health practitioners. The first need was a health evaluation method that would make it possible for alternative health practitioners to gather enough fast and economically, to obtain evidence about the biochemistry of their patient to make decisions about that patient’s health using accepted scientific standards.
First, we avoid ‘diagnosis.’ To diagnose, according to most medical dictionaries, is to determine the nature of a disease or distinguish one disease from another. Vitalist Methodology is not concerned with distinguishing between ‘doctor diagnosed’ disease categories or naming groups of symptoms as diseases, but screening for Syndrome Metabolic X (the plague of the 21st Century); with identifying insulin resistance, the state of dehydration; and arriving at wellness trends through biochemical needs of a subject by evaluating gathered data (variables) and letting that data form the conclusions. We have found that by addressing these nutritional needs in this way, symptoms that indicate disease situations many times disappear.
The second need was methodology and equipment that would be compliant with existing rules, standards and regulations, and, at the same time, be feasible for a solo practitioner to put easily into place. In other words, the Vitalist Method needed to be a system of alternative health care that was thorough, holistic, legal, compliant, cost effective, space saving and able to be handled in any office, no matter how small or large.
To fill those needs, I developed this methodology that had to
(1) choose laboratory tests that would allow a practitioner to gather enough information about the patient’s biochemistry to form an opinion about the overall health status of that patient,
(2) study the rules and regulations that apply to all aspects of an operation that would fulfill the needs of such methodology, and
(3) devise a cost efficient system of training and an application method that would be reasonable for the average person to put into operation.
Missionary services under ‘private expressive association’ provides the best parameters to allow one to:
(1) use commonly accepted, non-invasive tests defined by CLIA, waived tests, that are simple tests
with a low risk for an incorrect result. They include certain tests listed in the CLIA regulations, tests cleared by the FDA for home use, and tests approved for waiver by the FDA using the CLIA criteria. Waived (unregulated) tests include test systems cleared by the FDA for (non-doctor) home use, such as those freely available at drug stores or on the internet, and those tests approved for waiver under the CLIA criteria.
(2) Operating as a missionary, Ordained by SMOCH, takes those activities from commercial and public, into the ‘private’ sector and thus relatively unregulated, faith based, and ‘licensed’ (commissioned) under the Church, not government.
A ‘Church’ in this respect must fulfill the legal definition of a ‘church’ as such, and SMOCH complies in all respects having:
A distinct legal existence (508);
Recognized creed (vitalism) and form
of worship (nature cure);
A definite and distinct ecclesiastical
A formal code of doctrine and
A distinct religious history (hospitallers
of st. john);
A membership not associated with any
other church or denomination;
• An organization of ordained ministers (SMOCH);
• Ordained ministers selected after completing prescribed studies (in natural health & wellness);
• A literature of its own;
• Established places of worship;
• Regular congregations (investitures);
• Regular religious services (missions);
• Schools for the preparation of its ministers (PanAm U).

SMOKH Licensed Practitioners (Vitalologits) operate under the jurisdiction of the Sovereign Council.
SMOKH LIABILITY: The SMOKH issues credentials to Licensees that have met the standards established for ecclesiastical based pastoral health care practitioners. Licensee’s are held accountable to strict standards and ethics, and as “pastoral” practitioners are accountable also to the high standards of scripture. Nevertheless, the SMOKH cannot possibly know if a licensee’s training, ability or services are suitable for any particular Communicant, person or situation; therefore the SMOKH in no way warrants, guarantee’s or accepts responsibility for any services provided by licensee’s, nor accepts responsibility for Communicants success, failure or satisfaction with any licensee or his or her services.
Further, the SMOKH expressly disclaims liability for negligence to the full extent of the law. No agreement made between the Communicant and Licensee shall in any event override, alter or invalidate any of the terms of this agreement, and Communicants exclusive recourse if he or she is unhappy with Services is specified herein.
