Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

What is CPR?

Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is the procedure that maintains breathing and circulation artificially manually substituting the normal functions of the victim’s lungs and heart by helping the flow of air into the lungs and compressing the heart externally. When CPR is performed in a patient who has collapsed brain cells will be kept alive with the continuous supply of oxygen from the continual circulation of blood via the lungs and heart to reach the distal organs.

Why Should I Learn CPR?

CPR can help save lives. CPR is easy to learn. It’s just a simple series of actions that can save the life of someone close to you, anytime and anywhere. If you don’t know CPR, perhaps it’s time to learn. Do it for someone you love and save a life. Written material alone does not constitute a CPR course. To gain the skills of CPR, it is useful to practice on manikins with properly trained instructors as guides. Instructional videos may further enhance your skills. CPR in untrained individual may be potentially harmful. One of the most startling developments of modern medicine is that “sudden death” can be reversed. Perhaps more astonishing is the realization that this miracle of science may be brought about by any of us, anywhere, using only our hands , our lungs and our brains. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) performed properly and promptly can help victims survive to receive treatment with advanced medical techniques.

“EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING “.

Participants will be taught by qualified paramedical instructors headed by our Chief Coordinator, Puan Norfazilah Tambi.

As important principles and concepts like clinical death and biological death, heart and lung functions, shock and patient management procedures must be understood, a short multimedia lecture session lasting no more than an hour will be held at the start of the training programme day.

After which, the participants will be divided into skills station to learn and practise the necessary techniques needed to handle each situation in a role play format with the participants taking turns acting as a victim in all the common emergencies listed above.
