A medical team at King Salman Specialist Hospital in Hail managed to save the life of a patient whose heart stopped upon her arrival to hospital.
The team confirmed that the patient attended the emergency department while she was in a critical and emergency condition, and upon her arrival, her heart stopped, and the medical team rushed to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, as she came back to life after a stop that lasted for (8) minutes, to be transferred directly after providing her first aid service to the intensive care unit because of her suffering from heartburn, congestion in body fluids, high acidity in the blood, and her suffering from lupus erythematosus with complications on the kidneys that led to fluid congestion and a drop in the oxygen level in the body.
The team treating the case indicated that all emergency measures were taken during the time of resuscitation, which, thanks to Allah, contributed to stabilizing the condition.
