GVK EMRI launches bleeding control programme

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Mar 10:GVK EMRI, the emergency healthcare provider operating 108 ambulance services, on Friday launched a unique initiative aimed to train and educate people on techniques to stop severe bleeding among accident victims.
Dubbed as Active Bleeding Control (ABC) Project, the initiative is training 100 volunteers drawn from a variety of backgrounds including police personnel, auto and bus drivers, students, members from voluntary organisations, petrol bunk staff, shop owners etc.
Essentially, the 90-minute training programme involves teaching the participants with the process of pressure bandage technique, which helps stop severe bleeding among trauma patients and in the process saving their lives.
"This is a unique project and very few countries have this kind of dedicated training programme on techniques to stop bleeding," said Dr. Vinay M. Nadkarni, Co-Chair of International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), which is collaborating with EMRI.
A similar training course is available in US but only for health care professionals who work at the top level. "The ABC initiative of GVK EMRI, however, works with grass root workers such as bystanders, police, auto drivers, roadside shop owners, petrol bunks staff, students and others," he said.
According to Director, Emergency Medicine Learning Center (EMLC) and Research, DR. GV. Ramana Rao, in India for every one minute a road traffic accident occurs and for every four minutes a road traffic accident death occurs and the most leading cause for fatalities is bleeding.
"Bystanders in road traffic accidents can help the road traffic accident victims in saving lives. This is possible by a simple technique of "Pressure bandage" when the bleeding is active," he said. The ABC project is a joint collaboration between 108 GVK EMRI and PediStars (Pediatric Simulation Training and Research Society of India), Public Health Foundation of India, ILCOR, Road Safety Club at Hyderabad, State Transport and Police Department and International Agencies like American Heart Association(AHA) and World Point.
