GUWAHATI, April 11: Project CHILD has launched its first workshop to bring awareness among school children on the knowledge of basic life support – cardio pulmory resuscitation (CPR) — to people in need in the Faculty Higher Secondary School at Amingaon on the outskirts of Guwahati. Dr Shantanu Kumar Das, who heads the project CHILD programme said: “The basic life saving CPR programme aims to train around 7,000 school students and teachers in Guwahati this year. The objective of the programme is to make students more sensitive to medical emergency and become the first help provider than being just bystander in the time of any medical emergency.” CPR, according to a press release, is a life-saving technique that helps maintain some blood flow to the brain and heart, and helps buy time until paramedics arrive or the patient can be transferred to centres with advanced care.
