In an incident at Kharghar Navi Mumbai, an individual who was not from a medical background saved the life of another by using CPR Method, stated a press release. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique that’s useful in emergencies, such as a heart attack or near drowning, in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
Sachin Salunkhe lives in Kharghar- Swapnapurti complex and works in the billing department at Terna Specialty Hospital and Research Center. While doing a morning walk here, one person suddenly fell down. Salunkhe, who was living on the ground floor, rushed to his aid and saved his life by giving CPR. After this, the individual regained consciousness and Salunkhe informed his family members.
The individual identified as Zafar Rasool Khan was admitted to Sion Hospital for further investigation. Zafar, who is now back home is young and the only earner in the family remarked the release.
Speaking on the occasion, Salunkhe said, “We are given regular CPR training at Terna Specialty Hospital and Research Center and it has helped me to save a life. CPR is a very important way to save the life of a sick or injured person. However, you need to train for CPR before giving it. If I didn’t get CPR training regularly today, I probably wouldn’t be able to help him.”
“Heart disease patients are on the rise due to diabetes, hypertension, the craze for fast food culture, mental stress etc. Many heart patients are not aware that they have a heart attack. This can sometimes lead to a sudden heart attack on the road, dizziness while travelling or sudden cardiac arrest. What exactly should be done to the citizens around? It is not known and so the patient dies before being taken to the hospital. “This CPR training is very useful in such cases, said Santosh Sail, Senior DGM, Business and Operation.
