A worker who can't afford an ambulance, a dying child and finally a heroic attempt at CPR which saved the child. Seems like a good plot for a movie, right? Well it all happened with Guddu Chaudhary and his son Priyom, who was holding onto his dear life as his father desperately searched for a hospital which could save his 45-day old son. Priyom was suffering from bouts of fever and a respiratory infection for 15 days. His health was deteriorating tremendously and he had to be shifted to a different hospital. Due to lack of money Guddu could not afford an ambulance with an oxygen tank so he had to travel with his sick son without any medical assistance.


"In 15 days, we went to three different hospitals. The doctors first asked about money and then examined our baby. We borrowed and spent close to Rs 90,000 in two weeks. Later, we were told to take him to Wadia" said Chaudhary. During the ride to the hospital he felt his son slipping away. With no assistance nearby he decided to take matters into his own hand. He immediately started rubbing the child's numb feet and administered CPR, which stabilised his condition.

Guddu, a labourer in a steel company, had attended a CPR guidance session conducted by his company. The mentors of the workshop told him that it could help him save someone's life but even in his wildest dreams he had not imagined that it would be his own son who he would save.

The doctors stated that it was the CPR which aided in the survival of his son. Later he was diagnosed with a left arterial Myxoma, a tumour in the upper chamber of the heart, a condition that is found in adults. The tumour was removed after a successful surgery.


"In our country, people learn about CPR through movies, which is a distorted version of the procedure. However, lately companies and schools have been conducting sessions to train people in the life-saving measure, which I hope will make a difference," said Dr Panda.

A brief training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) could help save many lives. We need more such initiatives by institutions and firms to encourage people to learn such procedures and develop this mentality of administering first aid when required.
