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. Immediate action is to get professional doctors to help. Earlier, we lost one of the most talented and venerated actresses due to sudden cardiac arrest. What can we learn from such an unanticipated loss?
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 for better health?
The last and the most important, for several months now, I have been evangelizing the cause of CPR, which I talked about 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 godsend opportunity. Spirituality and good practices play a significant role in establishing or rebalancing. However, that what goes through those seven openings is only one aspect. We definitely need a comprehensive approach and plan.
Whether it is 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?
It’s time to audit and fix.
