Welcome Back, Human

Welcome Back, Human

She is training and she said, “I can still feel it in my hands…” and told me the story. The ambulance got a call and they rushed to a senior citizen’s home where a 95 year old lady was not breathing. Protocol is to do work on her, so she did mouth to mouth on the lady and then she did chest compressions. She said that she broke her ribs doing the compressions and that is what she could still feel in her hands, all of these hours later. She did five rounds of CPR on the little old lady and they even shocked her to get her heart going again. It was to no avail. She told me, “The lady had probably died peacefully in her sleep. And if we had been able to revive her, she likely would have been brain-dead from the electricity we put into her to try to get her heart going.”
Whoa…
Just imagine… Everyone hopes that they will die peacefully in their sleep. She was doing her job that is expected of her, but imagine if she had been able to revive this 95 year old lady who had peacefully died in her sleep, and they managed to bring her to life again, with crushed ribs and a dead brain… Welcome back!
