Automated external defibrillators are crucial in saving a person from cardiac arrest. These lightweight and easily portable devices deliver an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock delivered can potentially stop an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) to allow a restored natural rhythm to take over.
With the world currently in a state of shock and stillness, brought on by a newly discovered virus which caused a pandemic, everyone is slowly coping in their own ways and getting better. Everybody and every organization in the world are helping together to fight the virus and contain it. The lives of the coronavirus patients are sure to get easier and better as time flies by, especially because with what all the help they are receiving around the world.
Concurrently, the world is facing a pandemic that caused it to come to a standstill. These times require for solidarity and cooperation among every one of us to be one in overcoming and banishing the disease. As of writing this, possible vaccines for the disease are currently being tested and developed for mass use. A recent study warns that until an official working vaccine that can be used for mass use is developed, lockdowns and quarantines should not be lifted, as the virus could still further spread if there does not exist a working vaccine to contain it.
As we all know, with the escalating situation of the coronavirus pandemic, it has brought the entire world into a standstill. Just for a refresher, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a highly contagious disease brought about by a newly uncovered virus. The disease causes illnesses in the respiratory system (such as the flu, pneumonia, bronchitis, etc.) with symptoms also associated with the aforementioned illnesses (e.g. cough, fever, tiredness, and in severe cases, difficulty in breathing).
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a highly communicable disease caused by a newly discovered virus. The disease causes respiratory illnesses (such as the flu and even pneumonia) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, tiredness, and in severe cases, breathing difficulties. If not attended to right away, it can quickly lead to more complications.
Here are 6 Ways to protect yourself from the Covid-19 outbreak!
With the intensifying prevalence of the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) around the world that even the World Health Organization (WHO) declared it a ‘pandemic’ last week, it is as clear as day that we all learn prevention and safety information against the disease.
As with all emergencies, ignorance is a direct nail to the coffin. Being ill-informed on the situation will always end up with major disastrous consequences. Take, for example, situations where cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is needed.
The ideal world, basically, is a place where every single human on Earth has convenient access to his needs. While that perfect reality is still miles ahead in time, we are slowly moving towards achieving this dream of ours. If we look closely, we can get a glimpse of what this utopia looks like.
The word is an ever expanding place leaned towards industrialization. One could argue that we are in a golden age of progress and science. The planet has reached a point where new discoveries and inventions are being made almost every week. Yet, despite being on the cutting edge of advancement, there are still so many things we are not even acutely aware of, and some of these things that we do not know still threatens the life of millions every day.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is everywhere - it's in your preparedness drills, in movie scenes, in news reports, and even in social media. It's reasonable too, as heart attacks and respiratory arrests happen in unpredictable times and places, sometimes with a rescuer lucky enough to know CPR or in unfortunate times, none. You may have come across news about a person performing CPR and saving another's life, regarding such with high respect and heroism, and having that feeling of relief over the rescued life.
