2 SCA/OHCA Saves In One Year

Call it being at the right place at the right time but I am fortunate to have saved two SCA victims in the past year. The most recent occurred just over 2 weeks ago. Here is a link to the story http://patch.com/california/cupertino/area-exec-saves-heart-attack-victi...

The most important thing is that both individuals lived. That said I am trying to understand are the odds of this happening? From what I understand it is rare to save one persons life with CPR...but two in one year?

If anyone has some data that can shed some light on this, I would appreciate it.

David Goldberg’s Death May Have Been Due to Heart Rhythm Disorder

New details are emerging about tech mogul David Goldberg’s cause of death. He was the husband of Facebook’s executive Sheryl Sandberg.

Autopsy results suggest that 47-year-old David Goldberg had a heart arrhythmia. This may have caused him to fall while working out, leading to his fatal head injury on Friday.

While vacationing with family in Mexico, David Goldberg collapsed at a gym and died after suffering severe head trauma and blood loss.

Goldberg was the chief executive operator of SurveyMonkey, an online survey company valued at $2 billion.

The husband of Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, they were one of the tech industry’s highest profile couples.

“This is a huge loss for Silicon Valley. It’s by far the biggest loss since Steve Jobs,” said Marc Benioff, family friend and tech executive.
