Yonhap News Agency, Seoul, November 25th. A person in charge of the Special Investigation Headquarters of the Korean National Police Agency stated at a press conference on the 25th that the "prime time for first aid in the Itaewon stampede accident until about 11 pm that day" proposed by the headquarter is an example. Express "this time period is extremely precious for first aid".
The person in charge said that the "until 11 o'clock that night" proposed by the Ministry does not refer to the golden time for first aid in the medical definition. The Ministry believes that the degree of being squeezed and stressed is different according to factors such as individual physical conditions and location, so the timing of cardiac arrest and other situations will also vary from person to person.
The Ministry stated on the 23rd of this month that the first aid prime time understood by the Ministry is "the effective time for first aid to prevent death after the incident", and believes that 45 minutes after the stampede accident, that is, as of 11 o'clock that night is the prime time for first aid. However, the fire department and others retorted that, generally speaking, the prime time for first aid is 4 to 5 minutes after cardiac arrest. That is to say, considering the crowds at the scene that night, it was impossible to rescue a large number of people within the "prime emergency time" defined by medicine. (Finish)
