Delhi Doctors Miraculously Save 22-YO Engineer Whose Heart Stopped Working For One Hour
When Aasif Khan comes out of Apollo hospital, many may consider him a dead man walking. For, 12 days ago, the 22-year-old engineer from Aligarh suffered a massive cardiac arrest and his heart did not beat for nearly an hour.
The medical miracle that put Aasif back on his feet began with a stroke of luck: the cardiac arrest happened inside the hospital while doctors were examining him for acute chest pain.
As soon as he collapsed, trauma specialists kept the blood supply running by administering continuous cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and shock to the heart using a defibrillator.
