As one becomes older, he will have to suffer from various illnesses, and his declining bodily functions will put him at greater risks of suffering brain death, myocardial infarction, or faint during a shower. How should a senior do to carry out self rescue when such dangers happen? In the afternoon of 1 September, the activity themed "love, community, family doctor and health" was hosted by Yangpu Red Cross, IKang Cancer Rehabilitation & Service Center, and the Community Healthcare Center of Wujiaochang Sub-district in the Cultural Activities Center of the sub-district. 


Doctor Zhang Qiong at the community healthcare center delivered a speech on old people first aid general knowledge to more than 100 cancer patients. Mr. Zhang in his speech covered a wide range of topics from symptom discovery, first-aid method to CPR in the cases of cancer pectoris, myocardial infarction, diabetic coma, stroke, scald and faint during a shower. 


He repeatedly stressed that an immediate call for 120 must be performed with a clear description of the condition when an angina pectoris or myocardial infarction hits. He stressed that in such circumstances the patient should lie still, and their family members should not move him or her at will, but rather untie their collar and belt, keep their neck at a flat position, and put nitroglycerin or Quick Acting Heart Reliever under their tongue. Meanwhile the patient should take deep breath and cough. In case of respiratory arrest with heartbeats, CPR should be performed without delay. 


Many members took it that such a lecture was concise and easy to understand. It benefited them greatly by helping them gain a right knowledge of first-aid and the relevant methods. 


Xu Chen, deputy director of the Affairs Center of the Red Cross said, "In Shanghai, an aging city, almost every family has old members. So, it is critical to spread the knowledge about how to apply first-aid for the aged." In the future, the Red Cross will further integrate the resources of all parties and bring more health services to the needy in the community, and promote the spirit of humanity, fraternity and dedication.
