Ah ha ha ha, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive, ah ha ha ha stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive was playing throughout the meeting room on the second floor of Sagam community hospital (SCH) while the staff learned how to administer CPR.
Our amazing physician consultant Dr. Mei Ling Liu and nursing consultant Elise Perkins taught the exercise and watched closely as everyone, nurses, the cleaning staff, clinical officers, and even members of the SCH leadership practiced on improvised CPR dummies.
With the help of the repetitive funky rhythm and fitting lyrics of this seventies hit, the Sagam Hospital staff were able to achieve the target amount of chest compressions per minute needed to save a life. We sincerely thank both Elise Perkins and Dr. Mei Ling Liu for leading this presentation in the hope of saving many lives during emergency situations in the future.
