Applying CPR techniques early can save lives

The Spanish Society of General and Family Physicians (SEMG) highlights that there are around & nbsp; 30,000 sudden deaths per year outside of hospitals . Of all the cases, 80% occur in the home of those who suffer it.

But this situation can be reversed with the action of the people who are present. Knowing & nbsp; applying basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques on time can & nbsp; save the lives & nbsp; of those who suffer from sudden cardiac arrest.

The time that passes from when we notify emergency health professionals until they arrive at the place where we are, is essential. The first minutes that pass after the cardiac arrest is decisive, since each minute that passes decreases the chances of the person surviving. For this, it is necessary that CPR techniques are performed correctly. Defibrillators help restore normal heart rhythm, therefore, at Neosalus we work to raise awareness among the population of the importance of the use of defibrillators (AEDs) and to incorporate defibrillators (AEDs) in the greater part of public spaces.

Therefore, knowing the basic techniques of CPR is useful for everyone since a cardiorespiratory arrest can happen to anyone and at any time.

The application of & nbsp; CPR & nbsp; consists of & nbsp; two steps : mouth-to-mouth breathing, which provides oxygen to the victim, and chest compressions, which maintain blood circulation. In this sense, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and having defibrillators are vital to restore normal heart activity.

The problem is that these maneuvers are performed only in 1 in 5 people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital, so training of the general population is important so that they can identify the symptoms and know what to do.

At Neosalus we are aware of the importance of first aid and that is why we are committed to training related to first aid and the use of defibrillators . If you want more information, contact us here.
