Basic Life Support Training

As part of our ongoing effort to educate and train our students beyond the curriculum, gps organized a training on Basic Life Support in association with Aster Medcity for the students of grade XII (2016-17).

The students were provided with this unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with the “Dos and Don’ts” of medical emergencies as well as efficiently manage such crises.

The informative session which commenced at 9.00 a.m and lasted till 3.00 p.m, was enriched with a series of lectures, power point presentations and hands on training by the medical team from Aster Medcity. The students were trained in Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation, Airway management, managing choking, basics of defibrillation and use of automated defibrillator and other such basic life support skills. The medical experts also guided them through the procedures of infant basic life support. They were also enlightened on how to administer first aid in the event of seizures, snake or dog bites, submersion injuries, fractures, helmet removal and spine stabilization in case of trauma etc.

We are the first school in Kerala to conduct such hands-on life support educational sessions for our students. The first session was conducted in November 2015 for the students of grade 10.

These sessions which are an amalgamation of essential and lifesaving information, will be held in the school on a regular basis.
