With quick response and use of an AED, Suburban Imaging staff members were able to aid a patient who went into sudden cardiac arrest.
From ABC Newspapers:
Kay Ludwig, 64, Anoka, a registered nurse and a wife with four children and 11 grandchildren survived a sudden cardiac arrest. According to Ludwig, a visit to her doctor led the doctor to schedule her for an ultrasound at Suburban Imaging [Coon Rapids] to investigate a possible gall bladder problem, but when she went to Suburban Imaging Dec. 5, 2012, she started feeling dizzy on the table "and was gone."
Fortunately, staff at Suburban Imaging immediately began CPR and an AED in the facility was used to get her heart beating again normally, Ludwig said.
"I felt that I had just fallen asleep and had a beautiful dream," she said. "I am thankful to God that there was an AED and people there who knew how to use it otherwise I would not be alive today."
