Dandenong’s Colin Fiedler, 39, was one of three cardiac arrest patients revived last June after being dead for between 40 and 60 minutes at The Alfred hospital, which is trialling a mechanical CPR machine that performs constant chest compressions, and a portable heart-lung machine, News.com.au reported.
Till now AutoPulse machine and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation have helped treat seven cardiac arrest patients.
The machines allows doctors to diagnose the cause of the cardiac arrest and treat it, but keep blood and oxygen flowing to the vital organs and brain, which reduces the risk of permanent disability.
