Nurse helps perform CPR on passenger having medical emergency on plane

While Ms Katie Stencel was on a flight recently, the pilot requested for medical professionals on board to assist in a medical emergency.
Without hesitation, Ms Stencel, a nurse by profession, sprang into action. She joined a fire fighter and a flight attendant to resuscitate a passenger with CPR for an hour before the plane could land.
Ms Stencel shared her reasons for responding to the call for help. She said: “All I knew is that if we didn’t do something now, she had no chance. So we jumped in and did everything that we could.” Kudos to Ms Stencel, the off-duty fire fighter and flight attendant for stepping forward to perform CPR on the victim.
Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) is a time-sensitive condition. The chances of survival decrease by 10% with every minute without intervention. OHCA is one of the leading causes of deaths around the world. Hence, it’s important for as many people to be trained in CPR & AED.

Wife performed CPR to save husband’s life!

When Lisa Wiles was preparing dinner in the kitchen, she heard her husband, Dan from the other room. She went over and found Dan had weird breathing sounds. Immediately, after checking that there was no response, she called the ambulance.

The medical dispatcher on the line could hear the sounds that her husband was making and instructed Lisa over the phone on how to perform CPR. Soon after, an officer from the Sheriff’s department arrived and used the AED on Dan. They continued performing CPR and used the AED until the medical help arrived.

Thanks to their efforts, Dan survived! Thank you Lisa Wiles and the officer from Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department for stepping up to DARE to save a heart!

Always remember, if you witness someone who had collapsed or suffered a cardiac arrest, always remember to call 995 and stay on the line with the medical dispatcher who will be there to guide you until the ambulance arrives.
