Basic Life Support and First Aid training was conducted for School Children at the Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences & Research

Date: 20 Feb 17

Over 250 school children and teachers along with gym instructors received training in "Basic Life Support and First Aid" at Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences & Research (AIMSR) recently

The training in Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) was done by a team of Life-Support Instructors from the Department of Emergency Medicine as a part of the National Assembly on Pediatric Emergency Medicine (NAPEM) conference. NAPEM 2017 is being conducted by the Society for Trauma and emergency Pediatrics (STEP) in collaboration with the Society for emergency Medicine India (SEMI), the India Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) and Apollo Hospitals. The conference is hosted with the intent of raising awareness and standard of care for pediatric emergencies in all hospitals. Dr. Imron Subhan, Head of the Apollo Hyderabad Emergency Department, said, "In an emergency, bystanders who witness an accident should provide first-aid and quickly get the victim to the hospital. If they hesitate or delay the transportation, then even Emergency Doctors cannot do much for the Patient".

"Every family should have at one person trained in Basic Life Support and First-Aid skills" said Dr. Dinakar who was the lead Instructor.

Dr. Imron, who is also the organizing secretary for the conference said, "We have to make all emergency departments safer for children and better take care of sick and injured pediatric patients. Children with emergency conditions are bound to land up both in pediatric as well as adult emergency departments. All emergency doctors have to be ready to resuscitate and stabilize infants and children, and this can happen only with good training by using simulated scenarios on manikins".
