The workshop was conducted in two sessions:

Seventy-three participants attended the workshop that was sponsored by Snow Company.

The workshop enabled the participants to perform CPR in a scientific way, know the basic steps in rescuing cardiac arrest patients in casualty, and learn how to prevent fatal mistakes in emergency management.
