UP Police to get CPR training for providing timely aid to citizens during emergency

CPR training will be extended to zonal & range level in UP, including public participation.

UP police personnel will now be trained in basic life support technique, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This initiative will enable the cops to save lives of the civilians, especially during emergency situations. Training the police in several medical first aid procedures will come as a great help to a lot of people even before they reach the hospital.

CPR to prevent cases of sudden cardiac arrest

In a new initiative, the Uttar Pradesh Police has announced that it will train its officials in cardio first aid to avert crises and emergencies. This programme has been tabled to ensure that cops are aware of crucial first aid and on-spot medical procedures to administer timely help to patients who experience a 'sudden cardiac arrest' (SCR).

As informed by Dr Aditya Kapoor, HOD Cardiology at Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Science in Lucknow, this medical condition claims about 2 million lives in the country annually. These attacks can be very spontaneous, occurring at home or in public spaces.

"Although those suffering from SCA can be saved by bystanders, they often do not survive due to zero public awareness and knowledge on how to handle such emergencies. Delay in initiating lifesaving measures by bystanders decreases the chances of survival by 10 percent," he said.

Why is CPR Training crucial for police?

Meanwhile, Dr. Sudhanshu Dwivedi, the HOD Cardiology at Luckow's KGMU, pointed out that police across the world are trained in bystander resuscitation techniques for they are mostly in close proximity to the public. They are usually in a more favourable position to provide timely and immediate assistance.

As first responders, policemen should be well versed with life-saving first-aid measures, to help the civilians in distress. This could save a number of lives and increase the chances of survival of citizens suffering from heart attack. According to the plan of action the CPR training will be extended at the zonal as well as range levels and will also include public participation.
