But gasping is not breathing. Snorting is not breathing. Moaning is not breathing. Gurgling is not breathing. Agonal breath before apnea and death, the vet said; the lungs still will bellow after the heart has ceased to beat. I’d heard it before— I had less than ten seconds to okay the CPR that, with its rubber hose, would be hard-to-see, not an easy pass —my mother died more than once like this. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
