Do CPR for 30 mins before transporting cardiac arrest victims to hospital
 
Quite often we read about people collapsing due to a cardiac arrest. Former President APJ Abdul Kalam collapsed while he was addressing students in Shillong. He was immediately rushed to the hospital but could not be revived. More recently, Mr E Ahamed, Member of Parliament collapsed in the Parliament after he suffered cardiac arrest and passed away.
 
Such instances bring CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation back into the spotlight. The first instinct is to immediately rush a person to the hospital when you see somebody collapse suddenly. But at times, a first responder CPR may help revive the person until medical help arrives or a defibrillator is available.
 
Recently, a story was reported at WPRI News in February (Feb 16, 2017) about a major change in prehospital protocol policy in Rhode Island, USA for First Responders for the management of victims of cardiac arrest, which said: “Starting March 1, as dictated by the Rhode Island Department of Health, emergency response personnel will be required to conduct 30 minutes of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, on cardiac arrest victims before transporting them to the hospital.”
