CARDARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION (CPR)
AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR (AED)
The students undergo the CPR training which involves external chest compressions and rescue breathing. It involves CPR to be performed within the first six minutes of the heart stopping which can keep someone alive until medical help arrives.
Why CPR is important
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, more commonly known as CPR, is a life-saving technique that helps maintain blood flow to the brain and heart in an emergency situation.
CPR ventilates the body and brain for medical aid and advanced life support. When a person’s heart and breathing stops, Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), a lifesaving technique enables smooth flow of blood and oxygen through the body. CPR will result in few complete recoveries if used alone, however, the result without CPR is almost fata
What is AED?
The AED can detect abnormalities in a person’s heart rhythm and, if needed, deliver an electric shock to the chest to restore normal rhythm to the heart. This is known as defibrillation.
Sudden cardiac arrests are often caused by a fast and irregular heart rhythm that begins in the heart’s lower chambers, or ventricles. This is ventricular fibrillation. An AED can help restore the heart’s normal rhythm and even help revive a person whose heart has stopped functioning. Learn more about how the heart works.
