This story could benefit from some serious basic research. For example, chest compressions are a last resort, more liable to do damage than to help. You only do them if someone has no pulse or heartbeat. Rescue breathing probably wouldn't help unless Danny wasn't breathing on his own; unless the swollen and inflamed bronchial tubes could somehow be bypassed, one would think his lungs wouldn't be able to get and transfer oxygen any better just because carbon dioxide rich human breath was being pumped in.

This was well done, but I just have to tell you about a glaring error. Chest compressions/CPR should only be done when the victim's heart is stopped. If it's done when the heart is beating it can do some pretty hefty damage. Asthma attacks are caused by a histamine reaction that causes swelling of the airway. Asthma attacks are treated by the use of a rescue inhaler which is a bronchodilator, and it works by opening the airways to/in the lungs to make breathing easier. What's terrifying about asthma attacks is that forcing air into the lungs or CPR isn't going to help. It's a physical problem only helped by a bronchodilator or IV steroids.

I loved the story "Insufflate". You captured the guys beautifully. This the first story by you have read, but I look forward to reading others.

Happy New Year!

I'm not sure if CPR really works with astma because the airways are swollen, but I really liked this story.

Love the Danny whump! I thought you did a great job describing the emotions that both boys were experiencing. Looking forward to the other Hawaii Five 0 stories that you have written :-D

Welcome to 5-0 fic.

I loved the repetition of Danny couldn't breathe ending with Steve not minding the rant because Danny could breathe.

Asthma attacks, even the simple ones are not a whole lot of fun. The airway closes, and the medicines in the inhaler helps to open them. Unfortunately, because I only suffer from mild attacks, I happen to forget my inhaler often as well - can totally understand, and see Danny doing that.

Thank you for this nice story!

Nicely done, but you should take out the chest compressions...a person only does that when the victim's heart has stopped beating. If Steve really did that to Danny, he'd MAKE his heart stop...

That one made me shake my head at the boys and smile.
