“In the event of a cardiac arrest, administering Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, an emergency life saving procedure helps the patient to receive care till medical help arrives or they reach the emergency care center. In such situations, reaching the hospital within the golden hour is essential. Those who have training of basic life support stroke or CPR  facilitates to provide proper  care during such crucial times. Residents should be trained in BLS and CPR by a medical professional for managing emergency  situation . Due to panic, most of the times the kith and kin of the patient with cardiac arrest end up doing things that may not be favourable for the patient. But if proper training is provided, they will ensure proper care and  call the ambulance immediately along with administering CPR” said Kiran Joshi, Regional Head, Nightingale’s Home Healthcare Service in Mumbai.
Dr. Bipeenchandra Bhamre, Cardio Vascular and Thoracic Surgeon at Sir H N Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre Said “The current sedentary lifestyle combined with stress has led to an increase in the number of youngsters with coronary heart diseases. Chronic stress leads to hormonal changes, Hypertension, diabetes and heart diseases. If those in their 30’s are under stress for a longer period, are leading a sedentary lifestyle, then can lead to coronary artery diseases at a later stage. Multiple factors collectively cause heartproblems. Normal stress experienced during driving, commuting or handling daily activities are manageable. However, acute stress experienced among elderly can cause heart attack while youngsters are capable to handle such situations. If those with pre-existing heart ailment face any stressful situations, mentally or physically, can precipitate heart problems.”
Dr Bhamre further Said “It is imperative to create awareness among the residents, such sessions if conducted on a regular basis will help to build a responsible society. Residents will not panic and instead come forward and react in the event of such situations. It is essential to make them understand the gravity of such emergencies and act with a calm mind and avoid any serious illness. Importance of taking the patient immediately to the nearby hospital. Conducting such demonstrations will help women at home.”
