London doctor exhibits life support skills

IMPHAL| Apr 20

Dr Elangbam Bishwajit, consultant in Accident and Emergency at Birmingham Hospital, London demonstrated a mock drill on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) during a workshop on basic life support skills at Manipur Press club today.

The workshop cum felicitation of the London based doctor was organised by KANGLA, facebook group with an aim to popularise basic life saving skills during emergency.

Due to lack of CPR skills among common masses, there have been many cases of cardiac arrest in Manipur wherein doctors either had to declare the patient brought dead or it was ‘too late situations’ which could be saved if emergency service were given, said Dr Bishwajit.

The doctor explained that CPR is a lifesaving technique useful in emergencies of cardiac arrest or heart attack, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. CPR is easy to learn and it’s a skill that everybody should have, he encouraged.

He further said, “It will be far better to do something than to do nothing at all when someone just falls down before us.”

He encouraged not to be frenzied in such cases, and that one’s knowledge or abilities are not 100 percent complete and urged just to remember the difference between doing something and doing nothing could be someone's life.

Prof Ch Ibohal Meitei, director at centre for Entrepreneurship and Skill Development, Manipur University among others attended the workshop.
