MUNA. In the third day of Bhakesra Expedition Sail Tomini 2015, some volunteers of RZ conducted Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation training at SMA 1 Watopute. 50 students participated enthusiastically in this program.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, commonly known as CPR, is an emergency procedure performed in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest. It is indicated in those who are unresponsive with no breathing or abnormal breathing, for example, agonal respirations.
“Before we conduct heart and lung resuscitation, we have to follow several procedures namely victim’s consciousness checking through calling her name, pinch and patted the victim’s body, hear and feel the victim’s pulse,” Rawal, a volunteer, said.
In the last session, all participants were invited to practice and apply the technique toward a puppet. In addition, they also invited to play various educative games. ***
