Krishna Tirath endorses CPR 10INVC, Delhi, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge), Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India, Smt Krishna Tirath in a statement to Heart Care Foundation of India and Indian Medical Association said that everybody should learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). She also said that if the focus of training is on women and children, then the message can spread in the community like a wild fire. Such training camps should be organised on a regular basis in all schools. The meeting was organised by Heart Care Foundation of India jointly with India Medical Association (IMA). Present on the occasion were Padma Shri & Dr. BC Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India; Dr. D R Rai, Sr. Vice President, India Medial Association; Dr. Narender Saini, Secretary General IMA and Dr. Ajay Gambhir, Finance Secretary IMA.  Briefing the Minister, Dr. KK Aggarwal said that the only way to remember how to do CPR is to memorize the CPR Savitri Mantra which is Marne ke dus minute ke bheetar (jitna jaldi utna behtar) kam se kam agle dus minute tak (jitni der tak ho utna behtar) apni chhati peetne ke badle mare hue vyakti ki chhati peeto.”   The last phrase of the Mantra “apni chhati peetne ke badle mare hue vyakti ki chhati peeto” has proved to have a higher recall value and makes it easy for one to remember it.   The Mantra in English reads as: “Within 10 minutes of death (earlier the better), at least for the next 10 minutes (longer the better), instead of beating your chest, beat the chest of the deceased effectively and continuously with a speed of 10x10 i.e. 100 per minute.”
