Lack of knowledge about CPR in India a major reason for mortality due to cardiac arrest
Mass awareness on how to do CPR and access to external defibrillators essential for saving lives
 
New Delhi, 26 September 2018: A recent study called the Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation Outcome or CARO has indicated that of the 56.5% of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) events witnessed by bystanders about 92.5% occur at home. What is alarming is that only 1.3% of those who suffered these arrests received cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by bystanders. OHCA is one of the leading causes of death in India and the situation is exacerbated by lack of knowledge of CPR and training among bystanders in the community, and absent/ delayed emergency response systems.

CPR is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including a heart attack or near drowning, in which someone’s breathing, or heartbeat has stopped. This technique along with the access to external defibrillators (devices to restore the normal rhythm of the heart) have the potential to improve outcomes in all patients of cardiac arrest outside the hospital.
