Pilgrim saved after his heart stopped for 10 minutes at Prophet’s Mosque
The rapid intervention of the rescue team in the Madinah health sector was able to save the life of a Pakistani Umrah pilgrim whose heart had stopped for more than 10 minutes at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, Saudi Arabia.
The medical teams received an urgent notification to deal with the case of a 70-year-old patient suffering from health problems and loss of consciousness inside the courtyards of the Prophet’s Mosque.
Ambulance services were provided immediately and the patient was diagnosed that he had suffered cardiac arrest and breathing difficulties.
The medical team instantly started CPR with electric shocks for more than 10 minutes until the heart restarted beating.
Then the patient was transferred to Al-Safiah Healthcare Center to complete the treatment plan, and he was given the necessary medications until his condition became stable and he left the center.
It is noteworthy that the Al-Safiah Center has received seven cases of heart failure, 48 cases of critical respiratory illness, and eight cases of heart attacks at the courtyards of the Prophet’s Mosque since the beginning of this year. (Saudi Gazette)
