Cardiac Arrest

17 May: Near Haverhill


Anglia Two was tasked near to Haverhill to assist EEAST and police with a man in his sixties who suffered a cardiac arrest. Babcock pilots landed the helicopter on a field close to the scene. 

Doctor Lyle Moncur, Critical Care Paramedic Dave Killingback and Critical Care Paramedic Gary Spitzer provided enhanced pre-hospital care at the scene to resuscitate the patient, including delivering chest compressions and using a defibrillator and taking control of the patient's breathing. 

The HEMS team then accompanied the patient to the Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, by land ambulance, for further treatment.
