Calabarzon police learn CPR


CAMP VICENTE LIM: Fifty-six personnel of PRO4 CALABARZON attended the training on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), dubbed as ‘Save a Life. Learn CPR’ initiated by the Regional Health Service 4A on April 25, 2016. CPR is an emergency lifesaving procedure which combines rescue, breathing and chest compressions done when someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped. This may happen after an electric shock, heart attack, or drowning. Medical staff of RHS 4A served as lecturers and trainers in CPR demonstration and training. Participants learned basic and advanced cardiac life support through the step by step guide in CPR for lay/untrained persons and the step by step guide in CPR for trained rescuers. The lectures included the awareness of the one performing the CPR of C-A-B or the compression, airway, and breathing. Sr. Supt. Bernabe Balba, Regional Chief Directorial Staff, emphasized to the participants the need to be trained in CPR. In this season, in which more people are engaging in outdoor activities and police personnel are most of the time the first to respond to untoward events or accidents, it is imperative that PNP personnel have knowledge in providing first aid or CPR. He mentioned that there is a 33 percent chance of survival of the victim being given CPR. Balba expressed his gratitude to the RHS4A for organizing the activity to train the members of PRO CALABARZON.
