Memory Loss

It has been seven years now and I still have some short term memory loss issues, is this normal, I was dead for 5 minutes and they had to hit me with the paddles 5 separate times before they got me back to a normal rhythm, I was taken to the hospital and put into a coma for 48 hours on one of those tables that lowers the body temp and moves you around so you don't get bed sores.

It is sort of effecting my job performance, can anything be done to help?

Adding Youth to the Chain of Survival

What if your daughter went to school tomorrow and didn’t come home? She didn’t run away; she was not kidnapped. She collapsed. In Math Class. You get a call from her friend saying she fell out of her seat and was shaking on the floor, and now she is not moving, and not breathing. They called 911 and help is on the way. No one in her class knows how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and the school nurse is out sick. How can this be happening? Doesn’t everyone know CPR? And isn’t there a defibrillator in her school? You rush to the school. The ambulance has just arrived and the emergency medical technicians are trying to revive her. But it is too late.
