New Delhi, August 12, 2016: Legendary Pakistani Cricketer Hanif Mohammad was brought back to life after being clinically dead for six minutes. He, unfortunately, passed away due to old age complications a little later. What seemed like a miracle to the public is a medical routine. He was brought back to life through the process of CPR, a life-saving technique that is easy to learn and can be performed by anyone.
“40% of all sudden cardiac events are revivable with simple hands only CPR10, and the same can be increased to 60% using external electric shock machines called AED. It should be mandatory for all public places to have AEDs and large scale public training sessions must be held on Hands-only CPR 10. We at the Heart Care Foundation of India (HCFI) in the past two years have already trained over 1.5 lakh individuals including 100% of the Delhi Police PCR van staff that was trained in association with IMA”, said Padma Shri Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, Honorary Secretary General IMA & President HCFI.
