GUWAHATI, July 29 - A Basic Life Support (BLS) training programme for the city police was organized today in the premises of Bharalumukh Police Station by Narayana Super-Specialty Hospital. Around 25 policemen, including officers, participated in the programme. The BLS training is a programme that provides the best possible paramedical care in case of any unforeseen medical situations until full medical care can be given.
Policemen were taught immediate actions to be taken in case of any medical emergency including accidents or medical situations. They were made to perform mock medical emergency procedures like Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), in order to gain practical experience which would help them to understand the immediate protocols to be followed when such incidents occur.
