KSHEMA-NITTE CPR
"Save Lives" Campaign


Each year thousands of people suffer cardiac arrests - cessation of heart beat. Early recognition and quick first aid measures can save several lives. NITTE took up a major campaign to create awareness about emergency life saving measures amongst students and faculty of NITTE institutions. Volunteers were trained in identifying victims of cardiac arrest and performing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation - measures to support breathing and pumping by the heart until medical assistance becomes available. Teams of doctors conducted training programmes with help of manikins. More than 5000 students and faculty have been trained in CPR - Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation.


“NISHABDA” – awareness program about noise induced hearing loss



Exposure to excessive loud sounds can lead to impairment in hearing over a period of time. Such noise induced hearing loss is one of the commonest occupational health hazards. Noise levels in Indian cities is high and several groups of people like drivers, traffic police and factory workers are at high risk of developing hearing impairment due to exposure at work place. This devastating disability is entirely preventable by some simple preventive measures.

Nishabda (sanskrit for silence) is a project co-ordinated by the Department of ENT, K.S. Hegde Medical Academy since 2000.The objectives of the project are to create awareness about noise pollution and the evaluation of hearing assessment in persons at high risk for noise induced hearing deficits.

Activities include awareness programs for school children, screening for hearing impairment in traffic police, drivers and others with occupational exposure to high levels of noise.
