Male 53 years old managed to survive after a heart attack. When the victim’s relatives found his body cooled to 22°C.
For four hours the doctors fought for the life of 53-year-old patient, making him a cardiac massage at home, on the road in the ambulance to the hospital. Bringing the victim to the hospital, him hooked up to life support to increase the temperature of the body. Fifty-year-old Frenchman surprised everyone when his heart starts beating again, reports Rus.Media.
Jonathan Charbit, head of the intensive care unit, says that the patient has recovered due to cooling: a body temperature of 22°C slowed down the process of metabolism that has not allowed the body to spend all the energy. The doctors were shocked when a man had been 18 hours without signs of life, and then came back to life.
