Uniting for a Life-Saving Mission
In a world where life’s unpredictability can throw us unexpected challenges, being prepared to save a life can make all the difference. On the 16th of October 2023, Yuva Club at JKK Nattraja College of Arts and Science, in collaboration with the Advanced Nursing Lab, hosted a remarkable event dedicated to “World Restart a Heart Day.” This event saw the convergence of eager young minds, driven by a shared goal – to learn and practice the invaluable art of Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
Guiding Hands and Hearts: Mrs. R. Jamunarani’s Inspiring CPR Orientation
The event became all the more special with the esteemed presence of Mrs. R. Jamunarani, the principal of Sresakthimayeil Institute of Nursing and Research, who graced us as the chief guest. Her experience and expertise in the field of nursing added a touch of authority and inspiration to the proceedings.
As the event commenced at 10:30 AM in the Advanced Nursing Lab, Mrs. Jamunarani took the lead, providing a general CPR orientation to our enthusiastic students. This orientation session served as the foundation for the students, equipping them with the knowledge and hands-on experience required to perform CPR efficiently.
The day’s focus was primarily on adult CPR techniques and the importance of performing them correctly. Mrs. Jamunarani’s guidance and expertise were instrumental in making sure our students not only understood the theory but also mastered the practical aspects of this life-saving skill.
As Mrs. Jamunarani led the session, students were introduced to the critical steps involved in CPR. From assessing the situation and calling for help to performing chest compressions and providing rescue breaths, every detail was covered. It was an interactive session, with students eagerly participating and asking questions, demonstrating their commitment to learning this vital skill.
By the end of the session, our students not only had the knowledge but also the confidence to perform CPR in emergency situations. They understood that their hands, guided by the heart’s desire to save a life, could be the difference between tragedy and hope. The event was a stepping stone towards a brighter, safer future, where these students can be the first responders in times of need.
