BCLS training for doctors held at Sayaji Hospital under World Restart A Heart Day
Heart attacks often occur outside the hospital, at home, in the office, or on the street. Breathing, pumping and other ways of reactivating the heart are very important for survival in case of difficulty in breathing, irregular heartbeat or slow heartbeat and in case of stopping.
According to the new guideline of the National Medical Council, it is mandatory for all resident doctors to undergo the relevant BCLS training. As part of World Restart A Heart Day, a training workshop was organised at the Covid Command Center at Sayaji Hospital jointly with Medical College and Department of Anesthesiology.
Informing about the importance of this training for doctors, the professor and head of the anesthesiology department, Dr. Swati Bhatt said that training in the use of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is of paramount importance for all medical professionals.

According to the guideline of the Indian Resuscitation Council (IRC), under the leadership of department's co-professor Dr. Kavita Lalchandani, Assistant Professors Dr. Darshana Patel, Afroz Saeed, Dr. Neha Cheraya and Dr. Pinal Bumiya give training with the help of human figure.
