There is a long on-going discussion about the breathing part of CPR being so off-putting that it frightens people away from doing CPR altogether. I was wondering what can be done to make it less off-putting, assuming one does not have paramedic equipment to hand.
Obviously there is the miniature face mask, but most people do not bring that with them.
If the CPR is a two-person job, with the person pushing in charge, I could imagine telling the second person to clean the face with a tissue (assuming that starting with a delay is better than not starting) and then to breath through a second one.
I have never done CPR in a real life situation, so input from someone who has would be of particular interest.
Edit: Very sorry, I should have said that I was specifically not looking for "leave rescue breathing out" as an answer; I think that is a whole topic of its own.
