What if someone stops breathing?
briefly at a friend’s house. We were talking and suddenly, her speech
slowed down. Hurry up I said as I am scheduled to teach CPR in 30mins. She
smiled, nodded, and continued talking. A few seconds later she clutched on to
her chest. Oh do you want me to practice CPR on you I joked.
goodness, she is having a cardiac arrest ( heart attack) right in front of me. She
fell to the ground stopped breathing and lo and behold, I was thrown into
action mode knowing all that can go wrong if I do nothing. Thank goodness, she
spent some days in the hospital and was fine.
Question is what would you do if someone stops breathing. What if that person
is your family member? A friend shared with me this morning how just yesterday
she had to give her husband the breath of life because he stopped breathing.
Do you know what to do if someone stops breathing? Worse still what if the
heart stops beating? Do you know Basic Life support? Or would you just throw
your hands in the air and beg for a miracle.
Please, learn Basic Life Support today.
I got involved because a friend went to a restaurant to eat, choked and died
right at the restaurant as no one was trained in CPR. She was only 37years old.
As a health care provider, preventable deaths gets to me. That is why today, I
have chosen to create some awareness on CPR. Learn CPR today.
I have a huge passion for Africa. I went to teach CPR about 5 years ago in
Nigeria. Sadly my son died in Nigeria, in an emergency on his way to the
hospital. I stayed angry for years and never talked about it. I had deep hurt
from the incident. This year, as I turn 50, the work continues. This is not
about me, but it is beyond me, as many people need to learn basic life support.
For together, we can save a life
