As part of its Fire Safety Week celebrations, Fortis Hospital, Vashi, conducted a Basic Life Support training program for Navi Mumbai’s Fire Brigade on Tuesday, 19th April 2016.
The training programme for the firemen was conducted by Dr Rahul Gupta, Interventional Cardiologist, Fortis Hospital, Vashi. The programme also entailed a session on the Cardio Pulmonary Recitation (CPR) techniques that were demonstrated by Dr Gupta. CPR is a lifesaving technique useful in medical emergencies. It is performed in an effort to manually revive the Heart’s pumping ability, thereby restoring brain function until further measures are taken to restore blood circulation and breathing in a person who has had a cardiac arrest. The Fire Brigade personnel found the training programme relevant and extremely beneficial.
