The article reports on the recommendation of Province of Quebec coroner Catherine Rudel-Tessier to the Collège de médecins du Québec that all physicians and nurses working in private clinics should be trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. She also adds that facilities should be equipped with defibrillators. Accordingly, the recommendation emerges from the review of the death of Jean-Jacques Sauvageau who suffered from pulmonary embolism.
