|What Happened? From the signs and symptoms, they probably suffered a heart attack - and cardiac arrest. Your friend has just died.|
|What do you do? First, assess the patient -|
|How long do you have? About 4-6 minutes - MAX. If you don't get oxygenated blood circulating to your co-worker's brain and other body organs in that time, they are all but guaranteed to stay dead. It is best to start CPR within a seconds of their going into Cardiac Arrest.|
|Cardiac Arrest "The Big One" - The heart STOPS.|
|Heart Attack The death of the heart muscle. Usually due to heart disease. As a result of a lack of blood flow to carry oxygen to the cells of the heart muscle, the muscle dies - and the ability of the heart to pump blood is lost.|
|DefibrillatorA device used to intervene in a cardiac arrest. It is used to send a pulse of electricity through the heart - a TREATMENT for the primary forms of cardiac arrest. It "Re-Boots" the heart, so it will beat normally.|
|Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).Manually pressing on the patient's chest to squeeze the heart and force blood to circulate through the lungs and vital organs of the body, and to breathe for the patient by blowing (oxygen rich) air into their lungs. CPR is not a treatment for cardiac arrest - it simply buys time for a defibrillator and advanced medical care to arrive.|
