Union Health Minister Launches Nationwide CPR Training Campaign

NEW DELHI: Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya launched a nationwide campaign aimed at promoting hands-on training in the critical Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) technique. The initiative, inaugurated in New Delhi, witnessed active participation from various officials, including Minister of States SP Singh Baghel and Bharti Praveen Pawar.

Emphasizing a proactive stance to preserve lives, the Health Ministry shared a video of Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, MoS (Health) Prof SP Singh Baghel, and Dr. Bharti Praveen Pawar undergoing CPR training, marking the commencement of this crucial campaign.

Following the training, Minister Mandaviya highlighted the significance of maintaining heart health through proper diet while emphasizing CPR as a lifesaving measure during cardiac arrests. Stressing the urgency, he announced a nationwide drive aiming to train over 1 million individuals in CPR techniques.

This drive gains significance in light of recent heart attack-related fatalities, as highlighted by Gujarat's Education Minister, Kuber Dindor. Shockingly, Dindor disclosed that 1052 individuals succumbed to heart attacks in the state within a six-month period. Even more concerning was the revelation that nearly 80% of these casualties were individuals aged between 11 to 25 years, devoid of obesity symptoms.

Furthermore, Dindor pointed out that the Emergency Service Ambulance (108) is receiving an alarming number of 173 cardiac emergency calls daily, with a majority concerning young adults.
