|9:00 am||CPR training sessions scheduled for Jan. 24 NEBRASKA UNION|
Lincoln Fire & Rescue needs your help in order to save more lives. Think CPR means mouth-to-mouth? Think again! Attend one of two 30-minutes sessions and learn all about Hands OnlyTM, or compression-only, CPR from Lincoln Fire & Rescue. Nationwide, fewer than 45% of people who need CPR actually get it from a bystander, even though CPR can double – or even triple – the chances of surviving cardiac arrest.
The UNL training sessions will be held Jan. 24 at 9 a.m. in the Nebraska Union Auditorium and at 1:30 p.m. in the Nebraska East Union Goldenrod Room.
If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse and they are unresponsive, first call 911, then push hard and fast in the center of their chest until help arrives.
When a person collapses from sudden cardiac arrest, they have enough oxygen dissolved in their blood to maintain their vital organs for 10 to 15 minutes—the blood needs to be moved around, which is what CPR can do. Hands OnlyTM CPR is quick and easy to learn, hard to forget, and is at least as effective as traditional CPR. On top of that, no mouth-to-mouth!
During 2011, only 21 people survived cardiac arrest in Lincoln – a survival rate of only 12%. Lincoln Fire & Rescue works quickly and efficiently to deliver care, but they can’t arrive instantly and that’s where informed bystanders can play an important, life-saving role.
Most cardiac arrests happen at home, and most are witnessed, which means if you ever witness a cardiac arrest, chances are it will be someone you know. So take 30 minutes and learn to save a life!

|3:30 pm-4:30 pm||SBS Seminar - Kristi Montooth, Indiana University HAMILTON HALL|
Organisms face multiple biotic and abiotic challenges. The physiological responses that have evolved in response to these challenges can maintain fitness across variable and complex environments, and are important determinants of species’ ranges. My lab investigates the evolutionary, physiological and genetic basis for how species acclimate and adapt to their environment. My seminar will focus on adaptive cellular and energetic responses in Drosophila melanogaster, an ectotherm that has diversified across a wide thermal range and simultaneously become specialized on resources rich in the byproducts of fermentation. I will present data demonstrating that thermally variable environments selectively favor cellular plasticity, that cellular responses can incur significant metabolic costs, and that the thermal environment can mask or reveal genetic incompatibilities, particularly those underlying the pathways and processes of energetics.
