When House's heart stops, Wilson and Cuddy perform CPR on him, with Cuddy doing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. However, she is doing it incorrectly; she is not pinching his nostrils shut, which is necessary, otherwise the breath of air will escape out of the nose, making mouth-to-mouth ineffective.

These episodes keep getting better...
15 May 2008 | by blackavar-bunnieSee all my reviews

A month ago when the episode wherein a doctor trapped in the antarctic must perform medical practices on herself and her partner, everybody--including myself--seemed to think that that was the best House episode ever. Now, just two episodes later, I find the same thing coming from my mouth.

This episode is absolutely incredible. It's enthralling and weird, and really defies the usual House formula of "Faint or seize, credits, convince House to take case, diagnosis one, screw up, diagnosis two, screw up, random dialogue, five minute long expression of realization, diagnosis three, success, credits." Let me just say that the last few episodes of this season have managed to create more positive feelings towards Amber, and that for a few seconds on the screen, House shows a little more desperation to save someone than we have ever seen. It's an incredible episode. If you haven't watched it, you need to.
