Dead and then alive again

Edgar's picture
By Richard P. Holm M.D.
I have a number of patients who are enjoying life years after having a sudden death experience because they had the good fortune being near someone who could provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR. Of course there are times when people are certainly dying, when CPR would only cause more suffering, and when resuscitation should not be done. That, however, is another story for another day.
