Launching a special drive at the ongoing Perfect Health Mela beingorganized at Laxmi Bai Nagar by organized by Heart Care Foundation of India in association with Health Department, Government of Delhi, World Fellowship of Religions, NDMC, MCD and other NGOs and public sectors from 19-23 October, Dr. K K Aggarwal, Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee, President Heart Care Foundation of India & MTNL Perfect Health Mela said that doctors should prescribe drugs rationally.
Rational use of drug involves the identification of the correct medicine, giving in adequate dose and for the adequate period of time. Both under dose and overdose can cause drug resistance and cause serious side effects. Irrational use of drugs by quacks alone is the cause for over 1/3 death in the country which can be prevented.
Nursing Competitions Held
Divya Jyoti, the inter-nursing college/school competition, was held which included poster making, slogan writing, model display, quiz, role play.
Over 2000 nursing students of various nursing schools and colleges utilized the Perfect Health Mela venue as their community posting. They not only helped in examining & vaccinating the patients but also learnt about social counseling, stage management and many aspects of personality development. Apart from students a group of over 30 teachers coordinated the event.
Defining a nurse Dr Aggarwal said that a NURSE is noble, understanding, responsible, simple and efficient healthcare provider.
First aid classes
Hourly chest compression cardiopulmonary resuscitation classes are being held in the mela. Death is reversible provided chest compression at the rate of 100 per minute are given over 10 minutes and within 10 minutes of cardiac arrest (of clinical death).
General public need to be trained only how to do cardiac massage and they need not learn the ABCs of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in detail.
