Giving CPR is beneficial if the patient’s breathing stops in heart attack or cardiac arrest.
Professor Vascular Cardiology of Delhi AIIMS has given easy ways to give CPR to the patient.
It is necessary for everyone to know this life saving skill to save the patient till he reaches the hospital.
New Delhi. As winter progresses, the cases of heart attack or cardiac arrest are increasing rapidly. In Uttar Pradesh alone, more than 40 deaths have occurred due to heart attack in two days. Not only this, there are many cases of sudden death of youth and young people due to heart failure or cardiac arrest after Corona. Regarding the increase in the cases of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the Central Government has also asked the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) to know the reason behind it. Although according to health experts, a heart attack is not so serious, in which a person breathes, but in cardiac arrest, the heart stops pumping and the flow of blood to other parts of the body stops. The person’s breathing stops, although the death of the patient does not happen suddenly even in cardiac arrest, he gets some time, if he gets first aid or initial medical help during that time, then the life of every such patient can be saved.
Delhi based All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Professor Vascular Cardiology Dr. Nitish Nayak Talking to News 18 Hindi, it is said that nowadays such cases are being reported in large numbers when suddenly someone has a cardiac arrest and the person dies on the spot. However, in most of the cases, it has been seen that immediately after the heart attack or cardiac arrest, the person does not get first aid in Heart Attack or medical help. Most of the times it is possible to save such patients but there is delay in reaching any medical care or hospital and during this time they do not get CPR and other facilities.

Dr. Nayak says that the way cases of silent heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest are coming to the fore today, that a person suddenly falls anywhere while laughing, walking, roaming, sitting, dancing, his breath stops and in some time If he dies, in such a situation it is not right to rely only on doctors, but it is necessary for all people to have some basic life skills. Especially the youth should learn this so that if such a case comes to the fore, they can save the patient from dying by giving CPR i.e. cardiopulmonary resuscitation till they reach the hospital. This is a kind of first aid in case of heart attack.
Learn CPR in Cardiac Arrest in 3 Easy Steps
1. Any person who has suffered a cardiac arrest, is not breathing, is not having a heartbeat, then immediately make him lie flat on his back.
2. Now place the other hand on top of your one hand, place both hands in the middle of the patient’s chest and press hard by giving weight on both hands. Try to do this at least 100 times in one minute.
3. When you give pressure, let the chest come back to normal even after the pressure. You can do this until the patient does not reach the hospital or medical care or his breathing does not come normally.
CPR can also be given by mouth
1. If breath does not come even after giving CPR by hand, then to give mouth-to-mouth breath, first open the patient’s mouth, lift his tongue up, take a long breath and fill the patient’s mouth with full force. Try it.
2. After giving breath, if the breath is going into the chest, the chest is rising, then let that breath come out and then give breath for the second time.
3. If the breath is not reaching the chest, then turn the patient’s head back a little and give breath again. After giving CPR with hands like this 30 times, continue giving CPR with mouth twice.
