SRM University-AP, in collaboration with AIIMS Mangalagiri and the American Heart Association, is organising a Community Training on Hands-Only CPR on September 29, 2022, World Heart Day. Heart health is a fundamental human right and an essential component of global health justice.
World Heart Day was established by the World Heart Federation to educate people around the world that cardiovascular disease (CVD), including heart disease and stroke, is the leading cause of death in the world. The campaign highlights the actions that individuals can take to prevent and control CVD. It tries to motivate individuals to take action by educating them about how risk factors such as cigarette use, poor diet, and physical inactivity can prevent at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency lifesaving technique to be performed during instances of cardiac arrest or heart attack, or situations where someone’s heartbeat has stopped. CPR can double or triple the chances of survival after cardiac arrest. The American Heart Association is the leader in resuscitation science, education, and training and the publisher of the official Guidelines for CPR and ECC.
Learning Hands-Only CPR is learning an essential skill that would enable you to save a life!
