Interesting-as-hell case in point. A good doctor friend of mine, 2 weeks ago, in our very ER, had a patient who came in asystolic, multiple rounds of ACLS (shocks, drugs, etc) couldn’t restart his ticker. 4 ultrasounds showed ZERO cardiac activity. Bereft family comforted, patient in viewing room x 5 hours, cold and dead and family long since gone home. The dude started breathing again. Normal sinus rhythm. Moved to the ICU. Woke up. Went. Freaking. Home.
5 hours dead, and now not. I have no explanation, none.
I’ll blog on my own space about this in more detail. I just thought it fit here.
