Out of the Blue

We had some sausage in the fridge that was intended for the grill, but hadn't been made yet, so I was inspired this morning to try making an omelet in the oven, something I've wanted to attempt since having one in a diner a few months ago. It turned out great, and though it took far longer than cooking it on the stovetop, it was a simpler process. I just browned the sausage and put it in a cast iron skillet on some eggs mixed with a little water (I make a mean omelet, and the pro tip is water instead of milk) and some cheddar cheese. I started it briefly on the stove, and then popped it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes, and it was perfect with no delicate turning required. The one thing I failed to do was remember to avoid touching the skillet handle with a bare hand after it was out of the oven (ouch!), but luckily the contact was brief enough to avoid a real burn.

main thing to note from the study is how low the chances are with CPR.

Training makes a huge difference yet still it's low. Of course, some have no chance unless they happen to be in an ER at the time, but paddles are where it's at. Dramatically higher chance of survival AND faster so less likely to have brain damage from lack of O2.
