A Case for CPR – Why You and A Lot Others Should Know How to Perform It
What we all know is that if we see a person who has just suffered a cardiac arrest, we must immediately call 911. But do you know what you could do in the mean time before the paramedic team arrives that could increase the chances of survival of the person? Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation or CPR is a technique through which another person can pump the chest of the person who has suffered cardiac arrest so that blood keeps circulating from heart to the brain. This technique increases the chances of survival of a person by 10%.
According to Dr. Gregg Curtis Fonarow, spokesperson for the American Heart Association, around 200,000 to 400,000 individuals living in the US suffer from Cardiac arrest every year. Out of these, only 6% survive.
This low rate of survival is all because the ordinary people are not trained to perform CPR. In order to deal with this problem CPR123® has taken a positive step by introducing online courses so that individuals can learn the valuable lifesaving technique that will come in handy in emergency situations.
According to Dr. Graham Nicole, cardiac arrest is a treatable condition and the bystanders can save the life of a person by performing CPR on them until EMS providers arrive.
