The Key To Manage Stress Is a Balanced Diet

As a rescuer, we will always be affected by stress. Physically and emotionally. There are many ways or methods of handling stress. Some may be positive but some may be harmful. Taking medications most likely would be the last thing that we should do to relieve ourselves from stress.

Perhaps the key to overcome stress is to start from the food we eat. Remember that food is our fuel. It makes our body run. Without proper nutrition, performance will surely be affected.

Automatic Chest Compression

 Automatic Chest Compression Device.... making CPR easy....

Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation is the key to survival. However, such procedure is tiring most especially now that the rate of compression has been increased from 100 per minute to 100-120 per minute.

Just imagine yourself compressing and you are in the ambulance running in high speed..... Well, due to the advent of technology, performing chest compression while on the run may not be that tiring anymore....

However please bear in mind that this equipment can only be utilized by trained responders. But it surely is a welcome development in the field of emergency medical services.
