As I was driving home from teaching my Monday morning yoga class, I noticed a man lying face up on the sidewalk on Lower Roswell Road and another man standing over him. I pulled over and asked the bystander, “Is he okay? I have a first aid kit in my car.” My first thought was that he twisted his ankle. But the guy standing over him said, “I don’t think he is breathing.” I ran to him and realized right away: it’s agonal breathing. I checked his carotid pulse; no pulse. I pause for a second thought: Oh my gosh this man is in cardiac arrest! I shouted for someone to call 911 as I ran back to my car to get my Red Cross keychain that had a breathing barrier and a pair of gloves in it. I knelt down and double-checked that he didn’t have a pulse then I started CPR.
There was no time to think--all of my training just took over.
I gave it everything I had. I watched as this man’s face turned blue: I could tell he was dying. I thought, This is someone’s father, husband, friend--I can’t let him die. I did about eight minutes of CPR before the firemen and EMTs arrived. They asked me to move back and then applied the AED and gave him a shock. The AED worked--they got a weak pulse! The man, a jogger, had no identification on him. There was no phone, no keys, no wallet, no I.D. at all. EMTs loaded him onto a backboard and put him in the ambulance. As they drove away I began to shake. A rush of emotions came over me.
Did this really just happen? I thought to myself.
As an American Red Cross trainer I knew that if CPR is administered immediately after cardiac arrest, it can help increase the chances of survival. But I know it doesn’t always work. I had no idea for days if this man lived or died. I even pulled up the obituaries to see if there was a listing there.
After four long days, I got word: he made it. He was alive and doing well! I met him and he is a wonderful human and he is a doctor.
We all should be trained to do CPR. One day someone we love or we may be the recipient.
