CPR is an essential life-saving technique for revival after death due to sudden cardiac arrest. CPR training is for everyone and not just the job of the paramedics. Anyone in medical distress may need immediate first aid and quick response to such an emergency can save a life. In line with its mission of spreading mindfulness about health, HCFI conducts regular programmes and training camps to teach people the CPR technique.
What is "Hands-only" CPR?This technique entails using only chest compression without rescue breathing technique or mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to pump the heart and supply oxygen to the brain when someone is in a medical emergency due to sudden cardiac arrest or trauma from an accident. Knowing how to perform "Hands-only" CPR can mean all the difference between life and death.
Hands Only CPR 10 Mantra:
within 10 minutes of death, earlier the better; at least for the next 10 minutes, longer the better; compress the centre of the chest of the dead person continuously and effectively with a speed of 10×10 i.e. 100 per minute.
HCFI currently holds three Limca Book of World Record titles for the maximum number of people trained in "Hands-only" CPR. To know more click here

SAMEER MALIK HEART CARE FOUNDATION FUND SUCCESS STORIES
It was heartbreaking for the father of Muskan (an eight year old girl) to discover that his little daughter was suffering from a congenital heart disease. He is a driver with a monthly income of ₹10,000 and had absolutely no way to sponsor a treatment which would cost him about ₹2.5 lacs. Thankfully, he approached the Sameer Malik Heart Care Foundation Fund at the right time. She needed to undergo a surgery immediately as her condition was on a steady decline. As of today, over 1% of children are born with congenital heart diseases and most of them die due to lack of medical attention simply because their parents cannot afford to have them treated. Muskan was admitted at the National Heart Institute and was successfully operated upon. Her father is overjoyed that both his child, and her ’muskan’ (smile) are intact. His renewed mission in life is to ensure that his daughter receives quality education and is able to make her life meaningful.
Atul Sharma is 28 year old driver in Delhi and has a family of seven to support. His annual income is less than ₹1 lakh and he lives in a rented accommodation with his family. It was a bolt from the blue when he found out that his son, Dhruv Sharma (4 years old) was born with a complex congenital heart disease – with an absent valve. Dhruv required an urgent surgery which involved total correction of a hole in the heart and reconstruction of the lung artery. It was a timely rescue by the Sameer Malik Heart CareFoundation Fund which supported his surgery at AIIMS. His father can finally catch a wink of sleep at night, his son is now as healthy as any other normal 4 year old boy. The Samir Malik Heart Care Foundation Fund is continually and whole heartedly dedicated to providing quality and timely support to needy patients. It is succor for the soul of the foundation to see people being revived and leading healthy lives, who were once helpless and hopeless so as to whether or not they would survive. Thanks to our efficient team, we hope to only make this an upward trend, here, at our Foundation. For help and assistance call us on our helpline number
