In her explanation, Dr. Zakiah Khoirunnisa emphasized that BLS actions should be performed immediately if a victim is found with signs of respiratory distress, no signs of breathing, and/or no pulse.

This training aims to enhance the knowledge, understanding, and skills of the community in providing appropriate initial treatment to cardiac arrest victims before evacuation to healthcare facilities.

Through this training, Dompet Dhuafa hopes the community will be more prepared and trained to handle emergency situations, enabling them to provide quick and effective assistance when needed. (Dompet Dhuafa/South Sumatra/Ahb)
