Inaugurating the Second CPR 10 Training Programme for South Delhi Police Personnel, Mr. B S Jaiswal, DCP South said that for the sake of preserving evidence, the Police personnel should not forget to provide medical first aid or to revive a dead person. Providing first aid is the first priority at any cost.

Conducting a workshop on CPR 10, Padma Shri & Dr. BC Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India, said that in the next three months all the police personnel from South District would be trained in cardiac CPR.

By learning the technique of CPR 10, one can revive victims of sudden death within 10 minutes. Sudden death may include heart attack, electrocution deaths, hypothermia deaths, deaths due to choking, drowning deaths and other deaths, which occur suddenly without notice.

Dr. Aggarwal said that it is unfortunate that in our city that medical personnel cannot reach the victim early, therefore, we have to depend on police personnel and so we need to train them so that at least they can provide first aid including cardiac first aid to the victims.

In the second session, over 600 police personnel were trained. Training will continue till training of every police personnel in South Delhi is complete.

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 59455 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.”

The Delhi Police have released an adv assuring citizens they can now rush a trauma victim on city roads to hospital and leave immediately, with or without revealing their identity.

The adv says “The priority is the victim. So, now save a life readily, it is free of harassment.”

It reads: When seconds count, questions don’t.

Saving an accident victim is now easy. The very first golden hour is critical, it decides the victim’s fate.

Police is also reaching out to hospital staff and doctors.

Doctors have no business questioning a Good Samaritan. They should focus on the victim. There’s no need to wait for the police to reach the hospital before accepting a medico-legal case.

There are clear directions from the Supreme Court that doctors in government and private hospitals must promptly attend to accident victims without waiting for the police to arrive. [Source TOI]
