Push Or Persuade: A Walk Down Memory Lane To Investigate The Effectiveness Of Quarantine.


Date: June 18th, 2020

Is Quarantine the Key to Coronavirus Disease?

COVID-19 or the Coronavirus disease is the illness caused by the deadly corona virus commonly known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It was identified for the first time in the city of Wuhan, in the Republic of China, during an outbreak of a respirational illness.

The disease has been spreading since then, with an increasing number of infections reported in many corners of the world day after day.

The symptoms can start with a fever, coughs and sneezes, and severe headache. These symptoms are mild and common in both flu and common cold. However, the headache and fever is severe in the case of COVID-19.

It spreads from one person to another through droplets of body fluids, which could be passed when an infected person sneezes or coughs. Other ways of transmission are through contact such as kissing.

The disease has spread in most parts of the world affecting almost everything globally. It has been considered a global COVID -19 pandemic in the early stages 2020. The transmission of the disease is still on the rise, and no appropriate medication has already been discovered so far.

Protective measures to take when performing CPR on Covid-19 victims.

Before Performing CPR on Covid-19 Patients, It Is Important to Know the Signs and Symptoms of the Virus.

Coronavirus is an acute respiratory infection that can be transmitted from one person to another through contact or respiratory droplets from an infected person. The virus is highlycontiguous, and as the number of infected persons increase,performing CPR on Covid-19 patients is essential in preventing deaths.

COVID-19 has spread in most parts of the world affecting all major sectors. It is a pandemic that affects cultural, social and economic events all over theglobe.

It is believed that the virus came from a certain animal then transmitted to humans. When someone contracts SARS-CoV2, it will take 3-14 days for the manifestations to start appearing. Victims of this virus show flu like manifestations that range from normal to extreme.

Coronavirus patients have symptoms like dry coughs, fever, tiredness, sore throats body pains and sometimes, nasal congestion. Also, coronavirus victims may experience difficulty in breathing. Other signs of the virus are diarrhea, headaches, loss of taste and smell, blue lips and nausea.

Do Not Resuscitate: Hospitals Taking Extreme Measures to Protect Healthcare Workers

Hospitals Protecting Doctors form Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Techniques Amid Corona

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is the act of reviving a patient from apparent death or unconsciousness by administering chest compressions, rescue breaths among other complex procedures. You have to make contact with the victim to administer it—which was no problem until coronavirus came.

The coronavirus is an airborne infection that spreads through the air and when one comes into contact with an infected person’s body fluids—e.g. when they cough.

The concern for bystanders, doctors, nurses and other medical personnel now is that a willing lifesaver could accidentally contract coronavirus (if the victim was infected). So now the big question is; do we issue Cardiopulmonary resuscitation or not?

The hospitals at the forefront of dealing with the global covid-19 pandemic have indulged in heated private discussions over the best ways to go about Cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Their goal is to ensure that lifesavers are not exposed to the danger of contracting the infection while saving the lives of the patients.

This is a hard decision to make, especially by medical professionals who must operate within laws, and still protect themselves and the general public from such a contagious disease.

CPR first Aid: Understanding the Difference between an AED and The LUCAS CPR Machine

CPR first aid consists of the application of rescue breathing as well as chest compressions. Compressions should be the initial step. If the person is skilled and confident, then mouth to mouth resuscitation can be carried out.

The technique assists in reestablishing the unconstrained flow of blood. CPR improves the chances of survival when it occurs on time and appropriately. The process is vital as it helps in averting tissue damage due to lack of oxygen.

The use of defibrillation is another essential process that should occur during an incident of cardiac arrest. It is the action of applying an electric current to restore the normal rhythm of the Sino-atrial node.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Though we are aware of some common risk factors, anyone can need CPR at any time regardless of their health, age or sex.

A bystander should initiate the Cardiopulmonary resuscitation process on any person who’s still alive but is:

  1. Not responsive or unresponsive to touch, sounds
  2. Unconscious
  3. Not breathing or breathing abnormally—some sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) cases begin with gasping. In this cases resuscitation should begin ASAP.

Workplace Risk Assessment: Why ALL Employers Must Determine Their Risk Profile


Date: May 15th, 2020

Understanding Workplace Risk Assessment

Safety and health should remain our top priorities when accomplishing our day to day tasks. Our decisions on the actions we take should be primarily based on ‘how safe’ they are.

When you prioritize safety, it means you assess risks. For instance, when crossing the road, you have to ensure there are no oncoming vehicles to avoid a possible accident.

Whether employed or self-employed, workplace risk assessment is crucial in business or workplace. People will work better when they are sure of their safety at the workplace.

A safe workplace also remains productive all year long because a team remains intact and no one has to spend weeks or months in a hospital.

Furthermore, an employer doesn’t have to answer to prolonged lawsuits and spend thousands in hospital bills treating and compensating injured workers.

But as mentioned earlier, you can only stay safe if you assess potential dangers in detail. 

In this article, we will get a deeper understanding of a risk assessment, its importance and why we need it.

Understanding CPR and the LUCAS CPR machine

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving technique. CPR is given when an individual has agonal respiration or is not responsive. Time is a vital determinant of the success rate of CPR.

CPR first aid consists of the application of rescue breathing as well as chest compressions. Compressions should be the initial step. If the person is skilled and confident, then mouth to mouth resuscitation can be carried out.

The technique assists in reestablishing the unconstrained flow of blood. CPR improves the chances of survival when it is done on time and appropriately. The process is vital as it helps in averting tissue damage due to a lack of oxygen.

“Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) Order and What it May Mean to Your Health & Survival.


Date: May 9th, 2020

What’s DNR?

DNR means Do Not Resuscitate. A DNR is a legal note carried by a patient, barring doctors from resuscitating.  A DNR order can either be written or oral, depending on the country.

Without a DNR order, healthcare providers will immediately begin CPR procedures on a patient in case of an emergency. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation involves mouth to mouth or machine breathing and chest compressions to restore the function of the heart in case their heart or breathing has stopped.

DNR orders are prepared before an emergency, and it gives instructions on whether to receive CPR or not during an emergency. They are written under the direction of the patient or the patient’s family, after consultation with a physician.

DNR orders are specific only to CPR and do not affect the prescription of medication or any other medical procedures. However, in some cases, a DNR order has been used to prevent other medical interventions.

Before we discuss DNR in detail, here’s a breakdown of what the article entails.
