  • Jay is more than God damn lucky that it happened when it did with all the medical personnel around.. can you imagine if he went into cardiac arrest hours later when he was sleeping? there's a good chance the results may not have been positive

  • Great place to have a heart attack with medical personal already on the seen who likely knew what to do. Too many people have heart attacks in the middle of the night and die. Wishing him a strong recovery.

  • Thank god they revived him as fast as they did. This was a cardiac arrest idk why they keep calling it a "cardiac episode". To make it clear and simple his heart stopped, he was clinically dead, paramedics put defib pads on him and he had a schockable heart rhythm, shock delivered and Jay was instantly back which is the absolute best outcome. No nuerological deficits or anything because of how fast paramedics and staff responded

  • Hello there. I am a physician and do a lot of resuscitations. I hope to clarify some confusion. It is important to hve an understanding of this if you were ever put in a position when someone goes down. If you find someone without a pulse, CPR should be performed (as someone in the bottom right of the screen was doing). When someone does not have a pulse the number one most important thing for that person is that CPR is performed adequately (approx 100 compressions per minutes) and deep (yes, ribs often break). You get the AED. The AED will either detect 1) asystole ( no electrical activity of the heart and therefore no movement of the heart) 2) pulseless electrical activity "PEA" (the heart's electrical system is working and providing a detectable rhytm, but it is not beating adequately enough to produce a pulse) 3) Ventricular Fibrillation (the left ventricle, the part of the heart that is the big pump is just quivering but not actually pumping blood through the body to produce a pulse) 4) ventricular tachycardia (this can sometimes have a pulse. In this scenerio, the part of the heart that is the big pump is pumping so fast that blood is not actually being pushed through). If the AED senses scenerio 1 or 2.. it does NOT deliver a shock, eventhough there is not a heart beat. The reason for this is because you firstly have to have some sort of rhythm to shock (you cannot shock a heart back into a rhythm if it has absolutely no electrical activity) and in option 2, the eletricity of the heart is fine, it is just not pumping sufficently, so extra electricity (ie. a shock) will do nothing. If the AED detects options 3 or 4, it will give a shock. These are considered "shockable rhythms". Once a shock is delivered the hearts electrically activity will either reset and cause the heart to pump efficently again (creating a pulse) or it does not work. If the shock does not work, you immediately continue CPR and shock again when the AED is charged (and in some resuscitations we do CPR for 2 minutes in between shocks to artifically pump the blood around the person body allowing whatever oxygen remains in the blood to get to vital organs, such as the brain.) To summarize, if a pulse is NOT found, CPR is ALWAYS performed (unless of course if was an expected death or some other factors). AEDs should always be applied. It may deliver a shock if the rhythm found is going to respond to a shock by resetting its electricity pattern into one that will start pumping blood again effectively. So in the hospital, if scenerios 1 or 2 are occuring, we also cannot shock. The only thing we actually can do that has evidence is continue CPR (with artifical breaths) and give epinephrine every few minutes (unless there is clearly an identified cause in which you should also try to fix that.. ie.. you know someone took too much insulin, so you have push a fluid through an IV that has sugar in it). CPR, breathes, and Epinephrine are provided until you get ROSC ("return of spontaneous circulation" ie. Heart beats effectively again) or after say 30min (the length of time totally depends on the situation) the leader of th effort "calls it", and death is pronounced. With scenerios 3 or 4 the AED will do shocks, but between those shocks CPR needs to be done. And to clarify another thing. If any of these scenerios occur, it is NOT always a heart attack. Sure, a heart attack can produce any of the above scenerios, but so can many of things.... hypothermia,the blood becomes too acidic or has too much potassium, the body has gone without oxygen for too long, a lung gets a big clot stuck in one of it's vessels, the sac around the heart gets filled with blood or another fluid which puts so much pressure within the sac that the heart cannot pump, or the person has an arrhythmia (irregular beating of the heart), etc. There are many many causes and often when a resusucitarion is being done, no one knows the cause. Please also note that some people have arrythmias that are not deadly and sometimes even very short lived and common (do you ever feel your heart skip a beat after too much coffee?), and some arrythmias are very deadly (either causing that person to be dead at the time, ie. Like scenerio 3, or has a high liklihood that it will convert into an arrythmia that causes death). Resuscitations that occur in the hospital are often not successful. You are essentially treating a dead person. Luckily some of them are successful. In this case, if it is true that he was pulseless, recieved immediate CPR (which makes the chances of a successful resusciation much much higher), and a shock which caused his heart to start beating again they had to be dealing with scenerio 3 or 4. When resuscitating someone and they have 3 or 4, it feels better knowing that there is something that can be done other than CPR and some epinephrine to bring their life back. I hope this clarifies some things :-)
