Dear Colleagues:
I have searched PubMed, CINAHL, and I've googled.
The customer has asked how one performs cpr on an adult patient
absent/missing a sternum.
I have used variations of: missing, abscent, abnormalities, anomalies;
sternal cleft; pectus excavatum; sternotomy combined with CPR to possibly
find any mention.  This is definitely for an adult; not a newborn or
neonate.
Suggestions?  Guides???
