If you are trained to do CPR then there is no doubt in it that you can do something, obviously CPR, to save lives. In our today’s post we will see what steps we do perform to complete exercise which is called CPR. What does it mean? and How it is performed on an infant, children and young adult.
CPR is abbreviation of Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation. CPR is also known as artificial/external chest compression. CPR is performed when heart stops pumping blood caused by severe medical problems.
First Aid to Save a Life (FATSAL) Pakistan is unfortunate and can’t present any sort of proven data/record to show fatalities caused by heart from Pakistan. We have interviewed many doctors (who voluntarily answered our questions) to help us understand their reporting system after declaring any expiry in their hospital and discussed deficiencies in reporting and collection system. But we can quote here the statistics mentioned by Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) Lahore representatives who said that Sudden Cardiac Arrest causes more than 140,000 deaths every year in Pakistan.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) causes the heart’s normal rhythm to suddenly become chaotic. The heart can no longer pump the blood effectively and the victim collapses, stops breathing, becomes unresponsive, and has no detectable pulse. SCA can strike anyone, anytime & anywhere and take a precious life away.
Let me tell you in steps about CPR, sudden cardiac arrest and how First Aid to Save a Life Pakistan can help you to fight this and save lives.
If performed as early as heart problem suspected, CPR can save a life for you. We should look for clues to identify SCA and/or signs to get ourselves ready for help and to approach to ask questions to clear doubt or re is any problem and should be aware of our colleagues and neighbors
We all are interested to know what to do next to save live. It will only take our 10 to 20 minutes workout and wisely initiating emergency management services (EMS), like 1122 or other known services in each area to deal with medical emergencies, to do the rest for us.
if you found someone unconscious? If YES, then you are a GREAT PERSON, A HERO, and I have no words to praise you. AND if you don’t know how to save a unconscious patient’s life then learn it today and BE A HERO.
Each year we commemorate World Heart Day and some nations also celebrate February as their own National Heart Week/Campaigns.
In light of the facts, do you still have hope? Why or why not?
