CPR 10 is based on the concept that consciousness does not leave the body for 10 minutes after the cardiac arrest. If Hands-only CPR is done on the victim by a bystander during this period, the person can be revived.
The Foundation has created a Savitri CPR 10 mantra which states “within 10 minutes of 10 - earlier the better, for the next 10 minutes - longer the better, press the centre of the chest of the deceased victim with a speed of 10x10 i.e. 100 per minute effectively and continuously. In Hindi, it reads as “marne ke dus minute ke under dus minute tak aur 10 x 10 yani 100 minute ke speed par apni chhati peetne ke badle marne wale ki chhati peeto.”
