Doctors baffled by 'resurrected' woman

A woman who stopped breathing for over two hours suddenly woke up long after all hope had been lost.
Ruby Graupera-Cassimiro had undergone a successful C-section in a Florida hospital when she unexpectedly collapsed due to a rare complication known as an amniotic fluid embolism.

Doctors worked tirelessly to revive her using chest compressions and a defibrillator but after more than two hours without breathing and forty-five minutes without a pulse her outlook looked grim and the medical team took the difficult decision to stop.

As doctors were about to record the time of death however Cassimiro's heart monitor suddenly stirred back in to life and a short time later she had even regained consciousness.
One of the nurses declared that her revival was nothing short of miraculous.

Cassimiro revealed afterwards that during the time doctors had been trying to revive her she had dreamt of meeting her late father who told her that it was not her time and that she had to go back.

She later went on to make a full recovery and suffered no further complications.

If they were trying to revive her using a defibrillator then her heart was still beating. It had most likely gone into ventricular fibrillation which is where the heart beat is irregular and chaotic. This is what happens during cardiac arrest. In that condition, a patient can be kept 'alive' by using CPR to get oxygen into, and circulated round, the body. A defibrillator can 'shock' the heart back into it's usual rhythm. When there is no activity whatsoever in the heart, the patient can't be revived. What's remarkable here is the amount of time that elapsed before she was revived. But, as it s... [More]

Isn't a heat beat and a pulse inherently intertwined? That is, no heart beat, no pulse. Doesn't a hospital heat monitor detect even the faintest of heart activity? (I don't know for sure) Perhaps this is a miracle, or medical technology is somehow lacking. Neither. See above post. There will still be activity in the heart but it's not a pulse, and won't be detected as one. If you visualise one of those heart monitors where you can see a graphical depiction of heart activity, in a healthy person there will be regular peaks along the line. Like this: This is what ventricular fibrillation looks l... [More]

What's remarkable here is the amount of time that elapsed before she was revived. But, as it says in the article, this is rare but not unheard of. Not a miracle. Just decent medical care. . nailed it..... .

Untreated eclampsia in pregnancy can lead to seizures and even coma. This may have been the case with Lavrinia Merli, a peasant girl living near Mantua in Italy, who was thought to have died from ‘hysterics’. She was interred in a vault in July1890. Although it is not clear why, the vault was opened two days later and it was found that the girl had regained consciousness, turned over in the coffin and given birth to a child. Both were dead. The fear of premature burial persists today and is occasionally exploited by Hollywood in horror movies. Nor is it an entirely baseless fear. It is not eve... [More]

Baffled ! Baffled by life and baffled by death . Just another wonderfully confusing piece of information that we cannot process because we don't know what is life and what is death ! We only have theories and even the theories are baffling !

Did they know she was pregnant before finding the baby ? I would have said yes, as she gave birth to the child, which would indicate she was more than just a couple of months pregnant. But some of these stories I would take with a pinch of salt, the initial stories were very likely true, but then gets the added frills....much for extra gore and added interest effect. But sometimes the real truth behind some of the stories from the villages are even more terrifying than the myth.

The Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) algorithms for cardiac resuscitation are learned as a rote process and the process is one of continual recertification so that team members can interact synchronously in accord with current evidence-based research. The in-hospital (witnessed event) survival rates generally drop by about four percent per minute after the cardiac incident. Outcomes from cardiac arrests that result in discharge from hospital are around eighteen percent. After ten minutes survival rates are poor due to overall tissue deterioration caused by global ischemia. If I had ... [More]

The main thing is that she lived regardless of the details.
