Suraj Bhan D.A.V. Public School students learn CPR-10

1036 students of Suraj Bhan DAV Public School, Vasant Vihar learnt hands-only CPR 10 today, which explained how to revive a person within 10 minutes of cardiac death.  The training camp was conducted by Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee, Dr K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and Senior Vice President Indian Medical Association.
Sudden cardiac deaths are more common in dry winter than in wet winter.  Ayurveda also mentions that there are more chances of acute rise in blood pressure and irregular heart disease in dry winter.

Smt. Anita Ahuja, Principal of DAV School said that one should include training of CPR 10 in every school in such a way that 100% of students and teachers get trained.

Later in the day at the annual function of Public Relations Society of India held at Eros Hotel, Dr. Aggarwal said that in today’s era nobody should die of sudden unexpected cardiac death.  But people like Farooq Sheikh, cine actor do die now and then. It is possible to anticipate sudden cardiac death and to revive a person after death, he further added.

If you can climb two flights of stairs, walk 2 km or have an exercise with your partner in the bed without any symptoms, there are negligible chances that you will die of sudden cardiac death in the next 10 years.  If your blood sugar, blood pressure and blood cholesterol are kept under control; you are a non-smoker and your ECG is normal, this further rules out future sudden cardiac death.

About HCFI : The only National Not for profit NGO, on whose mega community health education events, Govt. of India has released two National Commemorative stamps and one cancellation stamp, and who has conducted one to one training on" Hands only CPR" of 84073 people since 1st November 2012.


The CPR 10 Mantra is – "Within 10 minutes of death, earlier the better; at least for the next 10 minutes, longer the better; compress the centre of the chest of the dead person continuously and effectively with a speed of 10×10 i.e. 100 per minute."
