Cardiac arrest survival story that’s close to home

Dr. Joseph Ornato is a well-known name in EMS here in Virginia and across the country.  If you don’t know him, he’s the Operational Medical Directory (OMD) for Richmond Ambulance Authority (RAA).  On a personal note, he also happens to be the Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at VCU where Amir and I are in residency.  If you have 30 minutes to spare, this is a great podcast interview of Dr. Ornato telling the story of how many of the technologies and protocols he initiated came together like a symphony to save his own life.
