Kartik Aaryan says learning CPR is important

Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan says it's important to learn how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

The actor is associated with an initiative by cardiologists to create awareness about the importance of knowing how to perform CPR, which can help resuscitate a patient during an episode of a sudden cardiac arrest.

Kartik posted a video on his instagram account, in which he says, “Life is fragile and precious and cardiac arrest is the leading cause of sudden deaths across all age groups. If you are trained in CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, you can save a life if someone has a cardiac arrest in front of you. Learn this life saving skill with an hour-long online workshop conducted by iCare. An initiative of cardiologists who have seen too many deaths that may have been prevented. It's time for us to step up and get active in our own communities”. He further added, “We can and we will soon be at par with countries where almost everyone over the age of 15 knows CPR. Let's do this together, register for this workshop with iCare and become a responsible citizen."
