Abstract
SERIES V of the JoAnn Elam Collection contains medical films associated with JoAnn's father, James O. Elam, M.D (1918-1995). Dr. Elam contributed significantly to the development and understanding of modern rescue breathing, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and brought it to the attention of the medical community and the general public. The films in this series document his development of the "rescue breathing" technique and numerous other advances in clinical anesthesiology and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
