Uma Baskaran started this petition to Ministry of Health, Ambulance owners, First aid attendants, public

It's a very disheartening situation and event which one should not face in one's life. My husband  while doing exercise indoors, all of a sudden threw himself with high impact and sound on the sofa, which was nearby him. I ran to him and saw him gasping for breath. I asked him to cough well but he couldn't hear me. His eyeballs rolled twice,  then closed and became unconscious within few minutes. The ambulance was called at once. Meanwhile AR was given but not more than three to four times.  As soon as the ambulance, arrived they were busy in taking him up on the stretcher and moving him to the nearest hospitall instead of giving him any first aid. If they had the defibrillator and proper training in handling the situation my husband's life would have been saved, as every second is precious in the case of cardiac arrest. The government should see to that each ambulance is equipped with a defibrillator and also look into that the staff in the ambulance are trained in handling the situation and the equipment. Also steps may be taken to have defibrillators in all the hospitals as a must one, as the hospital where my husband was taken didn't have one.

I am writing this petition as sudden loss of our dear ones within minutes is a irreparable loss which could have been prevented if some life saving devices are present in the ambulance and the knowledge and training to use such devices to the attendants are given.   I do not want this to happen again to anybody. Hence this petition to save lives in similar situations.
