An incredible cardiac arrest survivor story of a how a typical morning for Dalyce Bradshaw avoided tragedy thanks to her coworker and her husband providing life-saving CPR. Dr. Bentley Bobrow sits down with KPRC 2 News to discuss the impact bystander CPR has when minutes are critical before medical attention arrives.

Dr. Ben Bobrow, Emergency Medicine physician with McGovern Medical School at UT Health Houston and Memorial Hermann, said most cardiac arrest patients can die within minutes because bystanders don’t do CPR.

 

“The main thing is that initial link in the chain of survival happens because without that, by the time paramedics get there, often there’s little for them to do,” Bobrow said.
