GARCIA DE ALBA GARCIA, Javier Eduardo; GARCIA REGALADO, Juan Francisco and SALCEDO ROCHA, Ana L. Cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation Witnessed in the Mexican Hospital Context: a Study of Case in Patients and Relatives. Desacatos [online]. 2010, n.34, pp. 149-164. ISSN 1405-9274.
In this article we study the witnessed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (RCPp) in the context of the current cultural reconfigurations. From the opinion of 90 patients that entered Emergency Room and 90 relatives that accepted to participate in this survey, we found cultural favorable consensus toward the RCPp. This experience is rescued starting from a look that goes beyond the technical rationality, to establish some basis that can give origin to humanistic politics to recognize the right to the presence of the relatives in the admission places.
