A woman performs cardiopulmonary resuscitation and saves a fallen player during a badminton match

MALACCA, Jan. 29 (Bernama) — A woman providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) saved the life of a player believed to have suffered a heart attack during a badminton match at Dorian Down yesterday. It was a quick move.

Kristil Tan Ai Teng, 55, during the veteran men’s doubles quarterfinals around 9pm involving the 55-year-old player representing the Kota Bharu Institute of Teacher Education (IPG). He said the incident happened.

Kristyl, who was the technical director of badminton events in connection with the Malaysian IPG’s Inter-Stuff Games Carnival, heard cries for help at the side of the court.

“I asked for permission to interrupt the game, and I ran towards a man who was sitting on a nearby wall and saw him collapse. I thought he was having a heart attack. , I immediately performed CPR and was helped by a student, who also volunteered to retrieve an automated external defibrillator (AED) from my car.”

Kristil, who is also head of Melaka Tengah St John Ambulance Malaysia (SJAM), said another staff member at IPG Ipoh also helped perform CPR on the man while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. .

A lecturer at the Co-Curricular Unit of IPG Durian Daun said he was truly grateful to have been able to help the man, adding that he was informed that the man’s condition was now stable.

“I feel that the general public needs to learn about first aid to help everyone facing the same situation,” she said, adding that the first aid method is based on the blood flow and the lungs, brain, and to restore adequate oxygen levels to the lungs, he added. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a basic life-saving treatment.

“We also hope that more people will learn basic CPR techniques, use this AED, and attend free courses offered by SJAM to increase their knowledge of how to save the lives of others. I hope so,” she added.
