Master Trainers of Immediate Cardiac Response (ICR) were the eMed doctors, Dr Abdullah Saeed, Dr Zaheer Ahmad, Dr Jahanzeb Iftikhar, Dr Aqeel Ahmad & Dr Mahpara Hanif who, under the supervision of Prof Javed Iqbal, Incharge Surgical Unit-V, DHQ Hospital & Dr Khurram Sohail Raja, Head of Forensic Medicine, Punjab Medical College Faisalabad, conducted the training workshop in four sessions.

 

The doctors laid down the objectives of the workshop very clearly. They told the participants about the ‘barrier devices’ which help in maintaining artificial respiration of the injured or the sick. They also sensitized on the 1st aid measures taken in case if any ‘foreign body’ sticks in the respiratory tract.

The doctors specifically stressed on the safety of the patient as well as the responder. The participants showed special interest in ‘silent heart attack’, its sign & symptoms & what 1st aid measures can be taken in the case.

 

Participants while learning ‘adult chain of survival’ & ‘infant chain of survival’ were found very enthusiastic & vowed to take advantage of that in future.

Master Trainers had very successful group training sessions in which participants were able to learn & demonstrate how to maintain artificial respiration and what steps can be taken for heart if it stops (CPR).

 

The session on ‘choking of the airway due to a foreign body’ specially took all interest from the participants who prolonged the session & practiced the methods effectively on each other.
