I wouldn't worry about it, it's just a word. I have "resuscitated" babies where I just dried them off with blankets and looked at their color. I have resuscitated babies with intubation.

Our axioms were standard math. A=A. etc. this is from a beginning level, and wiki... I mean, basic... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First-order_logic
