Date: 20-04-2023 to 11-05-2023
Under the aegis of IQAC and IIC SBBSU, University Institute of Sciences (Department of Physical Sciences and Department of Life Sciences, Allied Health Sciences & Agriculture Sciences) have successfully conducted a Seven Day workshop on “CPR Technique” in lieu of World Health Day 2023 from 20th April to 11th May 2023; two days a week (Every Thursday and Tuesday).
Resource person for this workshop was Dr. Karnail Singh (MBBS, MD)
The workshop was conducted with the objective of providing participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to perform CPR efficiently. It was aimed
- To enhance the participants understanding of CPR,
- its importance in saving lives during cardiac emergencies and
- the correct procedure in performing the CPR.
Workshop began with an overview of CPR: its purpose and role in maintaining blood flow and oxygenation during cardiac arrest situations.
Students from all disciplines of sciences (B.Sc MLS, Radiology, Medical, Non-Medical, B.Sc Agriculture and BPES) and staff (teaching, non-teaching and drivers from transport office) participated in batches (50 participants per batch) and were trained in this workshop. They were provided with brief understanding of anatomy and physiology relevant to CPR emphasizing the importance of chest compression, airway management and rescue breathing technique.
Workshop followed the guidelines of Basic Life Support outlined by the international organizations such as American Heart Association or European Resuscitation Council.
The workshop incorporated the hands on training sessions to allow participants to practice CPR on mannequins brought by the medical professional team.
The expert and his team provided the real time feedback and guidance to ensure participants correct hand placement, compression depth and rate.
Participants were also informed about the use of AED (Automated External Defibrillator). They were taught and informed how to recognize when defibrillation is required and how to integrate AED use into CPR Procedures.
At last, Q/Ans session was conducted allowing participants to clarify their doubts or seek additional information from the instructors.
Overall, the workshop served as an essential platform to learn and practice CPR technique. It contributed significantly to building the students confidence and preparedness to respond effectively during life threatening situations.
