CLAY COUNTY – Jim Market was given a second shot at life two years ago when he collapsed in the parking lot of Baptiste Oakleaf ER from a left arterial descending heart attack (commonly known as Widowmaker). rice field.
A man from Middleburg wasn’t breathing when his wife pulled up a pickup truck at his front door.
“He stopped talking to me. He was making weird noises and turning blue. All of a sudden he stopped responding to me,” his wife Timi said. “By the time I got to Oakleaf Parkway, he breathed his last. By then I was driving 90 mph. I hit him and kept me from leaving. I cried out to
When they arrived at the front door of the emergency room, she went inside to get help. Security pulled him out of his seat and started a cardiopulmonary resuscitation market on the sidewalk.
“I knew I had to get him out,” said Luis Vargas.
Nurses and doctors soon joined Vargas and helped lift Market on a stretcher. A nurse continued chest compressions while Marquette rushed into the examination room.
The medical team worked to stabilize the market.
“Jim was essentially dead,” said Dr. Joseph King. “I had to shock his heart a few times to get it back to normal rhythm.”
A guard’s initial chest compressions and a quick response from the entire team were able to resuscitate a patient from a heart attack that had few survivors.
Successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is no worse than CPR when national television viewers watched in disbelief when the Buffalo Bills safety suffered a sudden blow to the chest that caused a heart attack and went into cardiac arrest. A medical team resuscitated him on the field and was forced to perform CPR again at the hospital. Hamlin has since recovered and been discharged from the hospital.
However, not everyone is so lucky. While many have heard of his CPR, few know how to perform it.
The basics are:
“Usually the first thing you do when performing CPR is tap and shout,” says Yolanda Tucker, an Acuity CPR and safety training instructor at Orange Park. “You’re waiting for a response.” 2 seconds maximum, after which I want to check the pulse.”
You can check your pulse by placing your index and middle fingers on your neck next to your trachea.
Tucker recommends checking your nail bed if you’re not sure how to check your pulse.
“It’s usually white, then pink again, which shows that it’s getting blood,” she said.
If you can’t feel a pulse, alert anyone nearby to call 911 immediately and bring an AED or automated external defibrillator. Most businesses are required by law to be owned.
“Then give CPR until one of three things happens: the person receives RSC (Return to Spontaneous Circulation), EMS arrives, or they are too exhausted to go any further. ‘ she said.
If the child has cardiac arrest, use two thumbs or the back of the hand to administer CRP and give rescue breaths after each set of compressions. If you see a teen or adult lying down, you can do Hands-Only CPR. The compression should be strong and fast in the middle of the chest.
To help you stay on track and find the right speed, Tucker suggested performing chest compressions to the tempo of Vesey’s song “Stayin’ Alive.”
“I want to do 30 compressions,” Tucker said.
There’s no specific way to place your hands, but they should be at least two inches below the adult,” she said.
Both pads have pictures if you are in a situation where you must use an AED. Child or infant pads are placed front and center, both front and back. That’s the only time I don’t follow the pictures. Otherwise, place one AED pad on the right side of the chest (just below the collarbone) and another on the lower left side of the chest.
Turn on the AED and follow the prompts. Your voice will tell you exactly what to do. Continue to perform CPR until you see Analyzing heart rhythm. When the voice is clear, make sure no one is touching the patient.
CPR is lifesaving and relatively easy to administer. Even someone without formal training can perform CPR and operate her AED according to instructions. Still, not everyone has immediate access to the life-saving care they need.
“People always think someone else will step up, but it’s not enough to call 911 because we can be the difference between saving a person’s life and starting CPR. You lose 10% of your brain’s function for every minute you’re late, which is why I urge all adults to learn CPR,” says Eunice Mathis, a CPR instructor at Florida Training Academy in Jacksonville. says Mr.

“Bring the whole family. Can you call 911 if your child can’t give chest compressions and you realize Daddy isn’t responding?” Mattis said.
