On 12th January 2016, the Department of Anaesthesiology & Department of Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery of D.Y. Patil University came together to organise a Lecture cum Hands-on course on CPCR (Cardiopulmonary Cerebral Resuscitation).
It was held in the Medical Simulation Laboratory of DY Patil University. The course was attended by Professors, PG’s, Interns & final year BDS students.
The lectures took place as follows:
It started with an introductory lecture on BLS (Basic Life Support) by Dr. Amit Nagpal;
Followed by a lecture about Case Scenarios by Dr. Snehlata Tavri, a senior professor of The Department of Anaesthesiology. Also, Dr. Mukul Padhye (Head Of Department, Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery, DY Patil School Of Dentistry) took a lecture about Common Emergencies encountered in Dental Practice.
Post-lunch, the bunch of 30 participants was divided into 3 batches of 10 each.
The 3 teams were taught in detail about Chest Compression, Airway Management, Arrhythmias & Defibrillation and Emergency Drugs.
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.
