Kulczyk started his business while Poland was still under communist rule, investing money from his father.

Locking lips with a stranger at death’s door may not be on your to-do list. But new research in the Journal of the American Medicinal Assocation (Jama) shows that anyone who has a cardiac arrest has a better chance of survival if a bystander immediately tries to resuscitate them. The good news is that the mouth-to-mouth bit of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is no longer essential – you can save a life by performing chest compressions that push blood round the body again.

Inconveniently, most people’s hearts don’t wait to get into hospital before they arrest. While bystanders wait for someone to shout, “Let me through I’m a doctor!”, the person’s chances of survival fall by 10% a minute. The British Heart Foundation says that only one in 10 people who have a cardiac arrest outside hospital will survive. Those who do make it risk brain injury through oxygen deprivation.

 

Słówka do zapamiętania:

Locking lips – złączyć usta np: do pocałunku.
If you want to lock lips with your date you might as well be straightforward and just ask if you can kiss him or her.

to-do list – lista zdań do zrobienia

research – badania

better chance – większa szansa

survival – przeżycie, przetrwanie

bystander – naoczny świadek, widz

essential – niezbędne, kluczowe

make it – przetrwać

injury – uraz, uszkodzenie

deprivation – pozbawienie, utrata
