According to her, when someone collapses, we need to go there, assess quickly and give him the required help. In the situation of the Adoni Chief, the first thing they should have figured out is to check if he is still breathing. After the assessment, you activate the “Doctors ABCD”:

D – Danger

R – Response

S – Send for help

A – Airway

B – Breathing


D – Divination

“All these steps flow into each other to ensure the person gets the best help possible. In the case that medical help does not arrive in good time, you should start CPR, i.e chest compression and breathing for the individual, which can be done even by an unskilled person.”

Push people back and give 30 chest compressions. Because it is easier said than done, people are encouraged to learn first aid and CPR before an emergency situation.

In conclusion, Dr. Tosin Osikoya told us that anybody can suffer cardiac arrest, heart disease being the most common reason why anyone suffers it.
