Hundred students of University Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), Kampar were given training on Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) procedure. The training was jointly organised by St John Ambulance and Federation of Private Medical Practitioners Association of Malaysia as part of the Citizen’s Action in Response to Emergencies (CARE) programme.
The students were divided into small groups and practised CPR on the mannequin. Dr. Chang Keng Wee, President of Private Practitioners Association gave a talk on wounds, bleeding and burns.
Manin Singh, State Secretary of St John Ambulance said that giving First-Aid in the right way and safely is not an easy task. If the students are given proper training they can give First-Aid when it is needed at any time and place.
