Successful resuscitation after a male had fallen down a flight of stairs in Ballito
PSS Medical Rescue paramedics, together with Lenmed advanced life support paramedics, responded to an incident where a male had fallen down a flight of stairs. The patient was said to be unresponsive.
On arrival of paramedics, they found that contractors (that were helping the residents move) had started CPR. Paramedics continued CPR for an additional 15 minutes and initiated advanced life support interventions when the patient's heart started beating. The patient was further stabilized on the scene before being transported to Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital to an awaiting specialist.
We would like to thank the individuals that started early CPR as it most definitely changed the outcome. Well done!
CPR saves lives.
