At least once in a lifetime first aid provided slightly less than 30% of Muscovites, while 14% of them do not know how to do it, and only 8% of people in the capital are confident that you know all the rules of first aid. This is stated in the results of a survey conducted by the research Institute health organization and medical management of the Moscow Department of health, writes AGN “Moscow”.
“Residents of the capital are not well informed about the rules of first aid – including those who already had. Slightly more than a third (35%) of Muscovites know some rules of first aid, 31% said they know they are not, don’t know – 25%. Only 8% know all the rules and 1% did not answer this question. Just under a third of respondents (30%) said they have experience in first aid. While 14% of them do not know the rules, 22% think they know about them a little, 38% believe that know only some of them, while 72% think know all the rules of first aid. Have no experience in first aid 69%, undecided 1%”, – stated in the survey results.
The most common situation in which respondents used knowledge of first aid were manifestations of a heart attack, epilepsy and stroke. Answers to questions about cardiopulmonary resuscitation showed that assistance was provided and those respondents who do not know the rules of such assistance. The vast majority either did not answer the question about its specificity or gave an incorrect or inaccurate answer.
The majority of respondents (57%) correctly named all phone numbers by which to call for ambulance (112, 103, 03) – 30% called them partially, and 13% did not cope with this task.
