Quick thinking and action by a member and the centre manager helped save a man's life at Adelaide Anytime Fitness gym.
A 39 year old man, unaware of his heart condition passed out while on a leg extension machine recently. A member close by quickly called out to Jesse Trout, the centre's Manager to call 000 and then started performing CPR.
Jesse then grabbed the Defibtech Lifeline Defibrillator and applied it straight away. The defibrillator analysed the victim's heart and detected a shockable rhythm where then a shock was delivered.
After one shock that was delivered within 3 1/2 minutes, the victim reverted to a normal rhythm. He was then taken to hospital where he discovered he had suffered a major heart attack which lead to cardiac arrest.
After 7 days in hospital, the victim is on his way to recovery. Another positive outcome with the use of a Defibtech Lifeline defibrillator. We would like to commend Jesse Trout and the member who performed this life saving rescue. Well done!
