Restoring Paul's Life After Cardiac Arrest
Just minutes after Paul made a delivery to a local country club, his heart stopped and he collapsed in the parking lot after suffering from cardiac arrest. When Paul arrived at Cooper, he was in critical condition. His family did not know if he would survive, or if he did, would he be the same man?
He was given a revolutionary cooling treatment called therapeutic hypothermia, which worked to cool his body temperature and save his brain function.
Today, just several months after his collapse, Paul is back to swimming with his kids, pitching them softballs and spending time with his wife. This is his story.
