Monroe County EMS Responds to Cardiac Arrest

On January 10, 2014 Monroe County EMS Unit 434 with its crew of Travis Wade and Heath Lisk responded to a reported cardiac arrest with Eddie McCormick responding as backup. The patient was transported to Park West Hospital while the crew applied CPR using the Lucas Chest Compression System. During transport, the patient was defibrillated four (4) times and upon arrival at Park West, had a strong radial pulse (i.e. pulse taken at various points of the body). The patient was discharged later in January and is expected to make a full recovery. Our sincere thanks to the MCEMS team for all they do to care for our residents and visitors.
