A Doctor has advised that people should find someone who knows how to do CPR to sleep with after his wife saved him from cardiac arrest while he was sleeping.
According to @DGlaucomflecken, on Monday night while he was sleeping, his wife noticed he was breathing funny, checked his pulse, noticed he didn’t have one and immediately started CPR.
Boy did I have a wild last few days. Monday night I had a cardiac arrest while sleeping. My wife noticed I was breathing funny, checked my pulse, didn’t have one and started compressions. EMT arrived and shocked me.
I spent the next 3 days with some kind of weird brain fog. I was in an ICU, but in my mind there was a big screen tv and nice plush leather recliners. I remember wondering why they were making me wear an open back gown and not letting me watch the big tv. It didn’t seem fair
Things are much clearer today. I get to go home with a vest. It’s a cool vest that shocks you if your heart misbehaves. I get a permanent defibrillator in a couple weeks. In the meantime I’m gonna be Mr. fancy pants walking around with his electric vest
I guess the lesson is find somebody to sleep with who knows how to do CPR. Seriously don’t waste your time with non-CPR people, it’s a matter of life or death.
Ok so this portable defibrillator is not so much a vest as it is a bra. I will not be providing any photos please respect my privacy during this bra-wearing time
