The Department of Emergency Medicine at KMC Hospital, Attavar, in collaboration with the Emergency Medicine Students Educational Society-Sentinels of Survival (SOS) and the Centre for Resuscitation, Acute Care, and Simulation Training at KMC Manipal, organized a CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) pledge program. The initiative, supported by KMC Hospital Ambedkar Circle and the American Heart Association, focused on community empowerment and imparting life-saving skills.

The organizing committee, consisting of Dr. Madhusudhan Upadya, Dr. Vivek Gopinathan, Dr. Sanjan A, Dr. Vimal Krishnan, and Dr. Jeedhu, orchestrated the program that witnessed the active participation of approximately 250 medical students, 50 respiratory therapists, and 20 nursing students.

Recent articles published on the subject highlight the efforts to increase CPR awareness in India, emphasizing the importance of education and action in saving lives during emergencies. The Cardiological Society of India, through the CALS initiative in association with SATS Academy and supported by Making India Heart Strong, aims to raise public awareness about CPR, improving the low bystander CPR rate in the country.

In a related event, a Kolkata Municipal Corporation survey identified at least 200 open chulhas around Victoria Memorial, prompting a comprehensive assessment to address the issue of solid biomass or fossil fuel usage for cooking. Meanwhile, a heartwarming story unfolded in Rachakonda commissionerate, where Constable S Venkata Suryanarayana and his colleagues revived a 45-year-old daily wager, Yellapalli Jagan, from a suicide attempt in Ambedkar Nagar, Badangpet, using CPR after receiving a call from the Dial 100 control room.
