Even Thoracic Surgeons Can Do CPR

If you have to collapse during your workout, make sure you do it near two nurses and a thoracic surgeon.

What's interesting, though, is outside the hospital, doctors and nurses are just like anyone else who might come upon such a scene:
“We do this every day, but we’re surrounded by our colleagues and the equipment,” she said. “To do it out in the field was just surreal..."
And it's even more surreal when the patient does so well.

Nice work, guys!

Reminds me of a former colleague, who had the great good sense to have her MI while meeting with the head of a local hospital's cardiac electrophysiology unit.
