The machine keeping heart attack patients alive

Not everyone has the chance to say thank you to the people who saved their lives, but Edwin came back to St Vincent's to be reunited with the NSW Ambulance paramedics who did just that.

After having a cardiac arrest on the street, bystander Kate called the ambos and performed CPR until help arrived.

Using new Lucas technology, he was kept alive despite his heart having stopped and rushed to St Vincent's where he made a full recovery. Watch the video below from Channel 9 News.
