WHY YOU SHOULD LEARN CPR
On 03/19/18 just after midnight, Rush FD Ambulance & CHS MIHC (Henrietta Ambulance) were dispatched to a report of a 68-year-old male in cardiac arrest. The caller who also performed CPR until Monroe County Sheriff Deputy Erica Henderson arrived and took over CPR within 3 minutes of the initial call to 911. EMT Jim Bucci Rush Past Fire Chief and present firefighter & Dep Chief at CHS (Henrietta Ambulance) arrived and was the first Rush responder to arrive within 7 minutes. 9-1-1 did a great job of making the proper notifies and getting help on the way quickly.
Upon his arrival he confirmed a medical 500 and the Deputy continued CPR until EMT Bucci applied the pads on the patient’s chest within 53 seconds where CPR was briefly stopped so the AED (Automatic Defibulator) could analyze the patient’s heart rhythm, it was then the AED indicated a shock was warranted and then delivered. Again within 10 minutes from the time of dispatch Paramedic Manzo and Medic Byrne from CHS MIHC, arrive and at this time there was no indication of CPR needing to be done after a pulse check and airway management and patient care was underway.
What saved this patient was CPR being started immediately by the patient’s wife Diana who is a current member of the Rush Fire Department adding she is an EMT and CPR instructor. The added benefit of Deputy Henderson being less than 1000’ away and was able to take over CPR and perform hi quality chest compressions until EMT Bucci arrived with his AED to provide early defibrillation. Good Prehospital care and treatment is what saved this person’s life!
