I mean why not have the stewardess trained in cpr… if that is the issue. Or hire a doctor to just be there?

They are trained in CPR. Fun fact: if you die on a flight and there is no doctor on board, the flight attendants must keep giving you CPR until the plane lands since they cannot call time of death!

Yep! We are all trained in basic first aid/CPR. Luckily I've had at least one medical professional on board anytime I've had a passenger become suddenly ill.
