Health and Wellness - Save a Life: Episode 58
The recent incidences of some celebrities collapsing suddenly and passing away due to a heart attack are concerning and shocking.
There is an alarming rise in the number of young patients with heart attacks and sudden cardiac arrest. What is equally scary is that sudden cardiac death may happen in people who have no known history of heart disease. The risk is higher for patients with existing heart disease.
In almost every family we have at least one family member with heart disease. Can one make himself/herself capable enough to save a life in an emergency situation? Yes, it is possible if you are well-trained in CPR. Many adults in cardiac arrest can be revived with intact neurologic function if the bystanders provide immediate CPR.
Eminent cardiologists in this episode raise public awareness and understand the practical applications of CPR which is an essential strategy to increase the success rate of CPRs in cardiac arrest cases.
Save a Life is an initiative through which people will be made aware of the early signs & symptoms of cardiac arrest, train them on CPR and highlight the role of CPR in saving a life.
