Labor Day Miracles

My name is Amy Jones.  I am 37 years old.  September 7, 2009 was the day my life changed forever. The first part of my story will be told from the recollection of others – the story may be incomplete because my husband, who is a major part in this story, does not like to talk about this. It is simply too painful. It is easier for me because I don't remember. I am almost a third party to the entire experience.

Pharmacological Fright

Michelle Bychowsky, Hoboken, NJ – 34 at time of event (2008)

Michelle Bychowsky

Michelle works for Novartis, she trained as a pharmacist, and now manages the drug supply for investigational trials. She was presenting during a meeting on that Wednesday, when she fell forward onto the table in front of her. 911 was called and several colleagues, who were also EMTs, hurried over to assist.
"I'd never met [them before] but now I keep in touch with them," she said.

Methodist University Hospital Expands Use of Therapeutic Hypothermia for SCA Survivors

MEMPHIS–A “cool” new treatment is responsible for saving the
life of 63-year-old Isaac Turner last December. “It saved him, no question,” said Bruce
Wilson, M.D., a cardiologist with Methodist University Hospital. Methodist
is the first hospital in West Tennessee to offer
therapeutic cooling therapy for cardiac arrest patients who meet particular
criteria.

Now

Methodist plans to implement cooling therapy in its other
three adult hospitals in the Memphis area, Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown
Hospital, Methodist North Hospital, and Methodist South Hospital. All four
hospitals are certified chest pain centers which brings high-level cardiac care
to patients in all corners of our community which is vitally important when
treating heart attacks.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
