The Department of Anaesthesiology of D.Y. Patil University came together to organise a Hands-on course on CPCR (Cardiopulmonary Cerebral Resuscitation).It was held for over three days from the 25th to 27th March 2019 ; with a batch of 24 interns being taught per day. It was held in the Medical Simulation Laboratory of DY Patil University. It started with an introductory lecture on BLS (Basic Life Support) by Dr. Amit Nagpal.
The 3 teams were taught in detail about Chest Compression, Airway Management, Arrhythmias & Defibrillation. Each participant practiced on the Mannequins in the Medical Simulation Laboratory. All in all, it was a very informative program, where the participants went back with the reassurance that in case of an emergency, they were well equipped to help the victim.
