Heart Care Foundation of India today created an Indian record by training 1010 students and teachers in one session in Continuous Compression-only CPR called CPR-10. The event was held at Birla Vidya Niketan School. 200 human dummies were used for the training.

Celebrities who witnessed and addressed the event were Dr Sadhvi Sadhna Ji Maharaj Chairperson World Fellowship of Religions, Ms Geeta Chandran, Noted Bharat Natyam Exponent, Mr Satish Upadhyay, Chairman Education Committee MCD South Zone, Dr Aparna Jaswal Sr Cardiologist Escorts Heart Institute, Dr H K Chopra Vice President Cardiological Society of India,  Dr Anil Bansal Jt Secretary National IMA, Mr Rakesh Paveria Additional DCP, Ms Minakshi Kushwaha Principal Birla Vidya Niketan and Ms Tapati Singhi Administrator Birla Vidya Niketan.

Launching the campaign, Ms Geeta Chandran said that 1% of the population at any given time should be trained in CPR-10.

Speaking on the occasion, Padma Shri & Dr. BC Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India, said that resuscitation mantra is that within 10 minutes of clinical death, for the next 10 minutes the chest of the victim should be compressed with a speed of 100   (10 x 10) per minute. If the electric shock machine is not available, one can give two thumps in the centre of the chest from a distance of one foot.

Dr. Aggarwal said that all relations of heart patients, healthcare workers, health journalists should be trained in this procedure. The difference between CPR 10 and traditional CPR is that mouth to mouth respiration is not needed in CPR 10. The Foundation plans to train one lakh people in the next two years.

Learning can be one to one on a human dummy, called single-rescuer CPR or it can be multiple rescuer training with multiple people performing resuscitation on one person.

Single-rescuer training will be held on 9th November 2012 at the Perfect Health Mela ground where 200 nurses will learn the technique in one go.

The function also launched the various other activities to be held in MTNL Perfect Health Mela.

CPR 10

1.   Cardiac death is reversible in the first 10 minutes. In this period the brain remains alive even though the heart and respiration have stopped. This period is called clinical death.

2.   In Ayurvedic language, the consciousness and the Prana Vayu do not leave the body in the first 10 minutes and therefore if the heart can be revived, one can be revived.

3.    The best way to resuscitate is to provide mouth to mouth respiration combined with chest compressions but if a sole lay rescuer is present or multiple lay rescuers are reluctant to perform mouth-to-mouth breathing, the Heart Care Foundation of India recommends performance of CPR 10 using chest compressions alone, called continuous compression-only CPR.

4.   The CPR 10 mantra (Formula of 10) is: Within 10 minutes of clinical death for the next 10 minutes continuously and effectively compress the center of the chest with a speed of 100 (10×10) compressions per minute.

5.   Clinical death means no respiration, no heart breathing and no response on painful stimuli.

6.   Ten minutes mean as early as possible. The chances of revival reduce by 10% each minute.

7.   Center of the chest means in the centre of a line between two nipples.

8.   Continuously means with minimum interruptions

9.   Effectively means compressing the chest up to 5 cm with each down stroke and allowing the chest to recoil completely between each down-stroke

10.       Remember: Push hard (compress 5 cm with each down stroke) and push fast (100 per minute) on the center of the chest.

11.       Do not interrupt chest compressions to palpate for pulses and continue CPR 10 until electric shock machine is available or a doctor takes the charge or the patient wakes up.

12.    CPR 10 is not for children or arrest that occurs due to drowning. In these cases, mouth to mouth breathing is still necessary.

The forthcoming 19th MTNL Perfect Health Mela being organized by Heart Care Foundation of India jointly with Health Department, Government of NCT Delhi will focus on revival of a person after clinical death.

Over 10,000 persons will be trained in Compression Only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation technique. Various Mela related activities will be held from 1st to 11th November, 2012 and the main Mela will be held from 7th to 11th November, 2012 at the Constitution Club of India, New Delhi

Addressing a press conference, Hon’ble Dr. A.K. Walia, Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Government of NCT Delhi, said that one percent of the population of Delhi should be trained in Compression-only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation as the incidence of heart disease and diabetes is maximum in India in the world. Sudden death is common in both conditions.

Sudden death can only revived in the first 10 minutes and the revival technique can be attempted by bystanders.

More than 25 lakhs people die of sudden death in the country in a year and 80% of them can be revived if bystanders try to resuscitate them timely with compression only CPR.

CO-CPR is not for done for a heart attack. The first aid for a heart attack is to chew a tablet of 300 mg water-soluble aspirin at the onset of chest pain.

Formula of 10 for preventing sudden deaths

Co-addressing the press conference, Padma Shri & Dr. BC Roy National Awardee, Dr. K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India said that the CO-CPR Mantra is “Within 10 minutes of death of a person for the next 10 minutes, one should compress the centre of the chest of the victim with a speed of 10×10 = 100 per minute.” In absence of electric shock machine, two thumps should be given with the fist in the centre of the chest before starting CO-CPR.
