Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving technique, which helps the flow of oxygen and blood in the body when the heart and breathing stop. Prior to this, the Prime Minister of Pakistan Shehbaz Sharif ordered to include CPR training in the curriculum at all educational levels across the country.
This move is part of the larger National CPR Training Initiative that will be launched soon. Under this, every citizen will be provided CPR training to allow them to save lives and act in a time of emergency. The government decided to launch this initiative after a video of a couple resuscitating a teenage boy, who had drowned in Naltar Lake hit social media. The husband gave the young boy mouth-to-mouth, while the wife performed chess compressions.
