Sudden Cardiac Arrest / Hear Attack

 

The HeartRescue Project has created a public service announcement to draw attention to one of the nation’s leading killers, sudden cardiac arrest, and what we can do to help increase the chances of survival.

Then check out the ‘Save-A-Life’ Simulator, and immerse yourself in the world of the PSA, joining other bystanders in making life-saving decisions.

First Responders – Volunteers who save lives in their spare time

 

Written by Francis Batt

Saving someone’s life is an experience few of us will ever have.

But in recent years a team of volunteers – known as First Responders – have meant the difference between life and death for thousands of people.

Responders are spread across the county with individual groups based in Windsor, Slough and Maidenhead. Most have full-time jobs but when on call they can be summoned from their homes or places of work like retained firefighters.

They carry essential equipment including a defibrillator and oxygen and can reach a nearby patient before the paramedics arrive.

Responders from across Berkshire were gathered as usual this week at the ambulance station at Wexham Park Hospital for their regular training session.

Fran Brewer, 51, from Stoke Poges got her first call out in February, months after becoming a Responder.

She said: “A man had suffered a cardiac arrest really close to where I was. I was first there. I did not restart his heart but had given him the first shock and started the compression process on his chest when the paramedics arrived.

“Death is a process not something that happens in a moment, our job is to delay that process until the paramedics get there.”

Fran worked in the pharmaceutical industry organising clinical trials and now runs her own consultancy business.

 Lee Docherty, 41, from Cippenham, Slough, started as a Responder nine months ago.

Lee, who is married with an 11-year-old daughter, said: “My mum was a nurse and when she died I decided I wanted to put something back into the community.

“I have been to 244 calls in nine months. It was nerve racking first time but you are warned not to get emotionally involved.”

Ronald Davies, 50, of Windsor is an IT projects manager. He started as a Responder last year and got his first call on Friday – to a man of 70.

He said: “Two of us were the first on the scene. I went into automatic mode and did the things I had been trained to do.

“It was only later I sat down and relived the day’s events in my mind.”

Jo Hempshall, 25, of Slough had some practical advice to all Responders – ‘always bring a spare top. I needed it when a baby was sick on me.”

 

Vancouver teen honoured for saving a life

 

By Ian Austin, The Province

 

A quick-thinking Vancouver teen is being hailed as a hero after saving an elderly resident at the Portland Hotel.

Cole Small launched into quick action when he saw Bill Thompson suffer a heart attack, performing CPR and keeping Thompson alive until first responders arrived.

And yesterday those first responders in turn honoured Small, 18, presenting him with a medal at Vancouver Fire Hall No. 2.

“Cole Small’s efforts were certainly heroic,” said Lieut. Carol Messenger. “He’s living proof that miracles happen.”

Thompson languished in hospital for the past month following his near-death experience, but managed to recover enough to attend Monday’s celebration.

For Small, it’s the second time he’s been called into a life-or-death situation in the Downtown Eastside – recently he tried to revive another Portland Hotel resident, (unsuccessfully), but this time the hotel worker was able to save a life.

“He knew what death’s door looked like,” said Messenger, saluting the teen’s act of heroism – and his now-veteran approach to CPR. “He knew that Bill was quite ill – he phoned 911 and kept him alive until first responders arrived.”

The fire department celebration even had some real-time drama – as Small was receiving his award, many of the firefighters on hand suited up and rushed out to a call aboard a ladder truck with sirens blaring.

Beaming with pride was Cole’s dad, on hand to see his young son feted by fire officials.

“I really can’t tell you how proud I am,” said Dan Small, his voice choking with emotion. “We all need heroes, but I can’t believe it’s my son.

“I remember an eyeblink ago when he was just a toddler.”

The teen himself wasn’t taking too much credit – just advising others to take a course in life-saving cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.

“I think it’s very important for people to learn CPR,” said Small, who’s worked at the Portland for 11 months.”Maybe it’s the training – I just used my gut instinct.

“I just needed to deal with the situation.”

Young Cole has seen enough that he’s probably going to pursue a career saving lives. The youngster plans to either be a paramedic or sign up with those who presented him with a life-saving medal and become a firefighter.
