Urban culture is taking a toll on youth with increase in lifestyle diseases like hypertension and diabetes, coupled with increased stress level and high risk behavior like tobacco use; smoking and alcohol intake have increased the risks alarmingly.
For Doctors, Paramedics, First responders it becomes imperative or a citizen to be aware about the signs and symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest and how to respond in such a situation.
The right medical help at the right time can go a long way in saving a person’s life in such a situation.
