If your heart were to suddenly stop beating, chest compressions would be required. But manual CPR , even when done well, doesn't supply enough blood to vital organs.
In this month's Health Check report, Serese Cole takes us inside the emergency department of the Fremont Area Medical Center to demonstrate how two new tools are giving doctors and first responders more help and time during a crisis - while increasing a patient’s chance for survival.
Dr. Brian Cunningham and Fremont Fire and Rescue Captain Pat Tawney will introduce us to the technology and reveal how it's changed what they do in the emergency room and on the scene of rescue call.
It's Friday at five on the Channel Six News.
