'hey, there's something called vaccination. future doctor/doctors should be vaccinated against hepatitis ..and patient's life is priority(just my POV)

In the hospital setting they use a special device for the ventilation (breathing) so there's no mouth contact involved.

But out of the hospital there's not a lot you can do in terms of mouth contact. There's a move to promote chest compression only CPR where you don't actually give mouth-to-mouth breath to the patient. It's shown that it's almost as effective as the usual CPR, and DEFINITELY better than not doing any CPR at all. So if you ever come across someone collapsing on the street with no pulse, please just jump on their chest to do a compression.
