As per this daily
A doctor has narrated her Experience in treating a passenger who suffered a serious heart attack

she was travelling in Pearlcity from TN on 8th Oct . and in the night TTE and attendentants came rushing to her to attend a passenger who was unconcisious
the passenger has just vomitted and has suffered a massive heart attack
she gave artificial breathe (CARDIO PULMONARY RESUSCITATION)
she tried nearly for 45 mts along with copassengers
she has mentioned that if Defibrillation Machine or Intubation Instruments or oxygen was there , she could have rescued the patient early
Train arr at DG but ambulance not arrived she then explained the half sleep doctor at the station the steps to be taken and after that she left the train

why cant a minmum emergency life saving equipment cant be in place in the Train when railways is earning huge revenue

what next? 1 coach of hospital to be run with a train and still passengers will be paying peanuts?

Lets be practical.. these kind of situations are exceptions..

do we ask all these kind of things in SETC or omni buses? we will have 1st aid box and in worst case, the bus will be driven to the near by hospital.

it is same thing happened where the patient was dropped into near by stations.

exceptions never become Generalization.

Hi Bala and Krishna,

I broadly agree with Krishna as all rescue devices or equipment in trains cannot be provided as we can scarcely anticipate such emergencies. Still, a start can be made like having immediate first aid kits - which may already be available - plus some additional equipment like one or two wheelchairs, plus those equipment or devices that might be required to treat very old people - in the age group 70-90 plus can indeed be kept. Of course, my own suggestion might look inadequate as one or two members might say why not some thing for infants or children or for pregnant women etc.

I would just end my post on feeling satisfied with the comment of the doctor posted by Bala who said that had better equipment been available, she would have rescued the patient "early" or earlier. This means that for close to 45 mts. the doctor did struggle to revive or resuscitate the distressed passenger, with the help of co-passengers, no amount of praise for whom will be enough, but in the end her efforts have (hopefully) been successful in saving a life.

Given the circumstance, this was the best that not just a knowledgeable doctor, but even an ordinary co-passenger could've done. Otherwise, it would be a terrible scenario. Thank God it was an incident in Pearl a train travelling only 650-odd kms. overall, just consider the desperate situation if the incident was taking place in a long-distancer like Tamil Nadu Exp. at about 3 pm when the after leaving Nagpur, it travels nearly 5 hrs. non-stop in the deep Vindhya-Satpura mountains between Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. Unlike on the route of Pearl where there is at least one major or semi-major station every 50-odd kms. the next major station of any consequence after Nagpur for 12621 is Amla, nearly 170 kms. away, where it doesn't halt. One would also shudder to think what would happen if it was a 12269 Duronto or Thirukkural/MDU SK which cover NGP-BPL between midnight or 2 am to 5-7 am

we can highlight these 2 incidents to GM through tweet and other means..
see, if they can improve their service for these kind of situations..

I feel, a doctor on the train can be found and they can be sent immediately... i think that was done..

2nd thing is to stop the train to the immediate stations

3rd thing is providing more temp health facilities.. but it might take longer time, as investment is needed.

The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a very handy one and is easily portable. IT costs around 1 lakhs (S$ 2000). There is no need that only doctors perform this process (CPR+AED). Any trained personal can also apply this and rescue people who suffered sudden heart attack.
Here it is provided in most of the places like parks, malls, Railway/Bus stations etc., Railways should consider providing this small kit in trains. I have a photo but cannot upload.

dont pass any sacrcstic comments .Boss passengers are not paying peanuts
what do you want to charge air fare equivalent?
already this is practised in suvidha ,duranto etc
and most of berths goes empty and the Present RM is doing a wonderful job in helping airlines
I know you will come Immediately to railways rescue
I have stated what the Doctor has stated
we can have minimum first aid support
Dont blindly always support railways. you posts always shows as if Railways is doing great work

Newspapers had been full of information regarding the latest ranking of Stations of various categories, in cleanliness. Though we have some stations in the top 100 cl;ean Stations, ther fact that several of our S.Rly Stations, which had secured places in top TEN slots in last yea's rankings, hav been absent from even the top 100 list niow !!. Maybe the yardstick for cleanliness had been changed now, Only Kumbakonam which was in top 10, has now slipped beyond 100 now. Trichy and Madurai which hasd fared very well duing last year survey, had completely disappeared from the scene !! Wonder Why.Any clues?

One point which i could think off is the people rating of the station. This could have been added recently and this would change based on the people mentality and the type of people they get results from. Considering the cleanliness for people from one region is not the same for other.

Recent works in reducing the number of counter in PRS locations, have had the casuality in the counter for Senior Citisens and physically Chanllenged, in M ylaopre booking centre. Protests and counselling finally yielded results. This coubnter is now back in Mylapore !!

OOps !! This counter works only on one shift daily from 10-AM to 16-30 PM !! I see lots of senior citizens coming inthe after noon, due to the hot sun in the forenoon, and waiting more than one hour to get their tickets!! S.Rly's way of 'service' can never be guessed !!
