According to The SMARThealth Extend study, High cardiovascular risk is common among Indonesian adults aged ≥40 years, and rates of preventive treatment are low. The study shows several important findings regarding the treatment received by the respondents with high cardiovascular risk in Indonesia. Only 11% and 1% of them received blood pressure lowering and statins treatment. Population-based and clinical approaches to preventing CVD should be a priority in both urban and rural areas.

On September 19th, 2021, SCOME CIMSA-BEM KM FK Unand held intervention 1. The event was filled with training entitled “Basic Life Support, Handling Trauma, and Indications and Handling Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR),” given by the experts from IDI West Sumatra, dr. Kino Sp. JP(K), and dr. Rhudy Marseno from PTBMMKI, the selected cadres, presented material that will be useful in the future as a prospective doctor.

In this section, these are some indicators that imply exemplary implementation of Basic Life Support is expected to: cardiac arrest can be prevented and patient transportation can be carried out quickly, Heart and lung function can be improved by using AEDs and compressions, and brain can be preserved because the blood supply is maintained until help arrives.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies. CPR must only be performed if the person is unconscious. You should not perform CPR if the person is breathing normally. The whole CPR process includes a continuous cycle of 30 chest compressions followed by two rescue breaths. By manually pumping the blood through the body with chest compressions and administering oxygen with the breaths, you act as the victim’s heart.

An AED is a small portable defibrillator used to restart a person’s heart when they are suffering a sudden cardiac arrest. It starts by analyzing the person’s heart rhythm and then sends an electric shock to the heart to get the heart to beat normally again. They are easy for a layperson to use because all one has to do is turn it on and follow the instructions prompted by the AED.
The type of trauma is divided into 4: musculoskeletal trauma, traffic accident with loss of consciousness, drowning, burns. Trauma management includes Danger, Response, Shout for Help, Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability, Exposure.
