Learn To Save Lives – Learn Basic Life Support
PMA joins hands with
Association of Pakistani-Decent Cardiologists of North America (APCNA)
Registration: Fee of Rs.300/ (for course material/test/certificate/tea).
Date: The 11th course is being held on Saturday 4th July at 9:30 am to 1 pm. 25 participants will be enrolled on first come basis.
Venue: PMA House, Sir Aga Khan Road . Karachi
Many SCA victims can survive if bystanders act immediately while ventricular fibrillation (VF) is still present but successful resuscitation is unlikely once the rhythm deteriorates to asystole.
The American Heart Association uses 4 links in a chain the “Chain of Survival”
- Early recognition of the emergency and activation of the emergency medical services
- Early bystander CPR: immediate CPR can double or triple the victims chance of survival from VF SCA
- Early delivery of a shock with a defibrillator: CPR plus defibrillator within 3 to 5 minutes of collapse can produce survival rates as high as 49% to 75%
- Early advanced life support followed by post resuscitation care
A medical professional (Doctor/nurse/paramedic) trained in Basic Life Support (BLS) can perform 3 or possibly all 4 of these time sensitive actions for the victims of VF SCA.
It is essential for health professionals to know the BLS sequential assessments and actions.
At, the end of the workshop the participant will learn BLS and will become an important member of the society.
Please nominate participants from your hospital. There are, limited number of seats per batch.
