The stars were clearly aligned on June 28th for a 46 year old man who went into sudden cardiac arrest at his home in Cote Saint-Luc.
Bystander CPR was started by someone on scene. The CSL EMS crew of Samantha and Adam arrived alongside two police officers from Station 9. The two police officers ran upstairs to take over compressions while the EMS crew established an airway and provided ventilations, as no shock was advised on the monitor.
Urgences-santé showed up shortly thereafter and by the time the patient was loaded into the ambulance, he had regained a spontaneous pulse and respirations.
Great teamwork between the emergency services and a focus on the patient clearly made the difference.
Thanks and congratulations to Cote Saint-Luc’s finest police officers, EMS volunteers and the ambulance technicians. Everyone involved in this intervention performed to the best of their abilities resulting in a life saved. You are all to be congratulated for excellent work.
