AHPI and SEMI launched National Cardiac Life Support Programme. Knowledge & Training on Basic and Advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) technique is essential for every health care staff in a hospital including doctors,nurses and paramedical staff. The survival chances in cardiac arrest can be drastically improved with Early identification and immediate resuscitation.
In India, very few healthcare providers are formally trained or certified in such resuscitation techniques which could save thousands of lifes. In view of providing such an essential training to all healthcare providers across our country, at their own work place, The Association of Health Care Providers India (AHPI) have partnered with Society for Emergency Medicine India (SEMI) which is the prime society representing Emergency Medicine in India, for providing a two day cardiac life support program.The program will cover basic and advanced cardiac life support techniques,managing cardiac arrhythmia and providing hands on training in techniques like defibrillation.The training program is also designed to address some of the common problems unique to India including medico legal issues and life support in poisoning, pregnancy, trauma victims & children.
An MOU was signed on 12th January 2017 between AHPI and SEMI in the august presence of presidents and board members of both the associations and the CEO of National Board for Accreditation of Hospitals (NABH).
