Teaching the students to stay prepared and alert for the worst, the Kasiga School, Dehradun arranged a workshop on medical emergencies and first aid, conducted by Rohan Oberoi and Vimal Vasudev of Momentum India, an Indo-Australian organisation that primarily works in the areas of health, safety, security and environment.
The workshop, conducted early last week, touched upon several medical exigencies and situations that may occur often and mainly due to ignorance. Apart from talking about the causes and reception of medical emergencies, the workshop also cleared a number of doubts and myths about cases of epilepsy, snake bite, heart attack, allergies and burns to name a few. The session that was aimed at teaching the young minds the right first-aid techniques and the way of dealing with critical situations saw equal participation of both students as well as teachers.
It also highlighted the importance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation commonly known as CPR. It was demonstrated on a dummy doll on which the students later took turns to check their newly acquired CPR skills.
It was an interactive and informative training session that gave several life saving tips to the attendees.
