The fact that they started cpr really fast and got him the medical help really quick helped a ton.

What I don’t understand is why they proned him. The only reason to prone people is if they are having issues staying oxygenated (even with the ventilator on the max amount of support settings they can do). Unless there is new evidence showing that proning somehow has positive outcomes in after the heart stops/has an arrhythmia? I haven’t heard about this yet unless we are behind on research. That is for the doctors to deal with. I just know we don’t normally prone unless they see a reason to. Some people may not even be stable enough to prone. It’s wild. Some you barely touch and their oxygen plummets. Those don’t generally make it though
