1.CPR

i.What is CPR?

Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation is a first aid lifesaving technique, consisting of artificial respiration and manual external cardiac massage. This helps prevent brain damage by providing oxygen to the brain cells.

About 92 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital. But statics prove that. If more people knew about CPR, more lives could be saved.


ii.Why CPR?

When the heart stops beating or the lungs stop functioning, there is non-availability of oxygen to the brain. The brain can survive only 6 minutes without oxygen. Beyond this limit, the cells of brain start dying. The destruction of these cells is an irreversible process and brain death occurs when a critical number of cells die.

If a victim has to survive, it is very important to ensure that the oxygen supply to the brain is restored within 4-6 minutes. Unfortunately, in today’s setup it is difficult to obtain medical care within this short span of time. This is where CPR comes into picture.


iii.When?

CPR is usually given when the brain is deprived of oxygen. The common medical emergencies that require CPR are:-

a.Cardiac Arrest- This happens when the heart stops working abruptly. This is caused usually due to heart attacks

b.Choking- This occurs when the air passage is blocked by a foreign object. Since the lungs stop working, heart stops working too.

c.Drowning- Drowning leads to air passage being filled with water and preventing air entry and exchange of gases, leading to decrease in supply of oxygen to the brain.


2.First Aid

I.What is First Aid?

First Aid is a basic knowledge about helping injured or sick people, before medical treatment is available. First Aid helps prevent the condition from worsening and saves lives in most situations. People should have a basic knowledge about first aid so that if there is an emergency, they could help the injured, before the ambulance arrives.


3.Other Trainings

i.AED

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that checks heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to restore normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrests.

With simple audio and visual commands, AED can be used by common man and helps as a first aid to save lives.

ii.IV Technique

The intravenous line allows health care professionals to administer fluids and medications directly into the person’s blood stream via a small tube. This is vital for a variety of medical procedures like giving fluids to treat dehydration, giving blood to a patient or issuing antibiotic treatments.

iii.Medical Emergency on Dental Chair

iv.ACLS

Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support is a protocol for handling people with cardiac arrests, stroke or other emergencies. ACLS involves managing the patient’s airway, initiating IV access, reading and interpreting ECG and understanding the uses, effects and actions of medicines.

v.ATLS

Advanced Trauma Life Support gives a systematic approach to the management of trauma patients. It includes primary, secondary and tertiary surveys in which life threatening injuries are identified and resuscitation is begun.
