An emergency response team from the Madinah health department saved the life of a Pakistani Umrah pilgrim at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah after his heart had stopped for more than 10 minutes.
A 70-year-old patient with health issues and a loss of consciousness was brought urgently to the attention of the medical teams inside the Prophet’s Mosque’s courtyards.
The patient was immediately given access to ambulance services, and it was determined that he had experienced cardiac arrest and breathing problems.
The medical staff immediately began performing CPR while administering electric shocks for over ten minutes until the heart started to beat again.
The patient was then moved to Al-Safiah Healthcare Center to finish the treatment regimen, where he received the required medications until his condition stabilized and he was discharged.
It is noteworthy that since the beginning of this year, the Al-Safiah Center has treated seven cases of heart failure, 48 cases of severe respiratory illnesses, and eight cases of heart attacks in the courtyards of the Prophet’s Mosque.
