Do we know the cause and are we adequately prepared to handle that? Of course, this is not a replacement for professional advice or management. An immediate action is to get professional doctors to help.
Earlier, we lost one of the most talented and venerated actress due to sudden cardiac arrest. What can we learn from such an unanticipated loss? Someone responded saying,
Despite all efforts sometimes we are helpless. However, efforts are the only thing we have in our control, having said that, as I was talking about this earlier, we all need CPR training. However, I avoided directly prescribing before knowing the awareness.
During the initial phase itself, several amongst us live in that risk zone. How do we identify if we fall in that zone? How deeply are we exposed and impacted to that risk? What is it that drives us into and out of that risk zone?
Second, what do we do once we have identified our own risk? How best to reduce? Will it happen overnight? Is overnight fixing possible? How do we plan and implement a roadmap towards better health?
The last and the most important, for several months now, I have been evangelizing the cause of CPR, which I talked before posting the generic concern this morning. Often CPR given at the right moment is helpful. If late (around 7-10 minutes), becomes ineffective, not that heart cannot be revived but irrevocable damage has already occurred by then. If someone continues the pumping until medical help arrives, that becomes a god send opportunity.
Spirituality and good practices play a significant role is establishing or rebalancing. However, that what goes through those seven openings is only one aspect. We definitely need a comprehensive approach and plan.
While I have no knowledge if she was indulging in any of that, I am sure she had access to expert guidance on how best to do that. Though rumor mills are ripe with speculations, botox, plastic surgery and liposuctions are unlikely to do that. Metabolic drug, especially anabolic steroids have severe damning effect though. It is wise to presume, that she had access to professional advice. Sridevi is just an example of sudden cardiac standstill. Last night, I lost an extended family member who was 39. Earlier around new year, we lost a 21 and 29 year old in Irving.
Whether it is Sridevi, a 39, 21 or 29 yr old, do we know the precipitating factors? How can we stop walking that path? And if that happens in your presence, what would you do to stop it?
Its time to audit and fix.
