unknown chinese male.

my first collapse. watching someone from go from pulseless electrical activity to ventricular fibrillation and then to pulseless ventricular tachycardia (various unstable rhythms) - all the while with CPR, shocking and drugs in between. it was sad, because he was with a couple of strangers when he collapsed and no one knew his name. thank goodness he's stabilised now. it's amazing to be able to bring back a pulse with chest compressions. i think everyone should learn CPR. if you haven't, do think about it now.

was talking to xx later, and i said, one day we might have to do this for someone we know. she replied, that's the scary part.
