Hooray! Another Life Saved!

On 3rd November 2011 at 12:12pm, one of our clients responded to a an apparent case of “seizure”. Upon arrival to the victims side, he was found to be unresponsive with some foaming at the mouth. Although checking of pulse of not needed now in the guidelines, being veterans of life saving, they checked it anyway and found none. They immediately switched on the AED and applied the pads.

This is the first ECG analysed just after applying the electrode pads :

The large spike shows the shock that is delivered to the victim. The following ECG strip shows that his heart came back to normal rhythm :

They then continued CPR just as the AED prompted them to. At the next AED analysis, this was recorded :

This tells us that his heart rate is about 6 times a minute. His blood pressure is definitely low. The AED still prompted them to perform CPR, which they did.

At the next analysis, this is what was recorded :

His heart rate is now approximately 100 beats per minute!

After this time, the emergency ambulance arrived. The victim started waking up as they stretched him into the vehicle.

Kudos to our client!
