Cardiac arrest patient saved
    2018-07-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A MAN who suddenly fainted due to cardiac arrest near Shenzhen Children’s Hospital was saved by doctors and nurses after more than an hour of first-aid treatment, sznews.com reported Monday.

The man surnamed Luo was 56 years old. He accompanied his family to the hospital Sunday morning. Feeling a bit sick, he waited in the square before suddenly fainting.

The security guard at the gate immediately rushed to get help from the emergency department. Qi Yin, deputy director of the department, followed the security guard to the scene. Luo’s symptoms indicated that he was suffering from sudden cardiac arrest.

As it was the first time Qi had rescued an adult, she asked the security guard to call 120 for additional assistance and evacuated onlookers. Once Luo was connected to a defibrillator monitor, it showed ventricular fibrillation, meaning he required defibrillation.

At that time, an ambulance arrived from Peking University Shenzhen Hospital. The emergency care staffers immediately used an AED (automatic external defibrillator) to rescue the patient.

One hour and 10 minutes later, Luo’s heartbeat was finally restored and he regained consciousness. He was later sent to Peking University Shenzhen Hospital for an examination. Luo was diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction and is recovering well.

Luo is said to have experienced chest tightness and chest pain two days before the incident. Moreover, he is overweight and likes smoking, which increases the risk of a myocardial infarction. (Zhang Yu)
