More than 25 million pesos invested the study house in the purchase, which aims to create cardio-protected spaces in specific places of the institution.
As a priority and a necessity, the acquisition of the new defibrillators 14 that the University of La Serena acquired, in order to have them in case of cardiorespiratory emergency, was called. That is why 25 millions were invested, a figure that also served to buy stretchers, first aid kits and immobilizer necks.
It is for this reason that the Human Resources Department, through its Risk Prevention Department, organized a training course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques -RCP- so that 150 officials know how to face an emergency, and know the way in which the automatic external defibrillator is activated and can save a life.
The training has been developed since Monday and will end on Friday, it has a duration of 8 daily hours and those who participate are from different units, faculties and addresses of the institution.
The Director of Human Resources, Miguel Sánchez, highlighted “the disposition of the officials who are participating in the different campuses and management areas that have participated in the training for the use of these devices, which will allow for a greater reaction capacity against a contingency that requires the use of DEA; In short, we appreciate your will and solidarity by committing to this training. ”
The DEA's investment is part of the Strategic Development Plan, which in the field of Institutional Management seeks to strengthen security, evacuation and emergency care equipment in the various University campuses.
This project was managed by the Directorate of Strategic Development and Quality and executed by the Department of Prevention.
It should be noted that all campuses will have these cardio protected spaces, which makes the institution a clear sign of concern for their community. Likewise, the Department of Prevention and the external company in charge of training the officials will also call on the CEC to enroll in this training and get involved in the task of being prevented, informed and prepared for medical emergencies.
