A 40-year-old man could be recovered from a cardiorespiratory arrest that he suffered this Friday afternoon when he practiced sports on Las Teresitas beach, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, according to the Emergency and Security Coordination Center (Cecoes) 112.
A call alerted that a man had fainted, so a coordinating doctor from the Canary Emergency Service (SUC) gave the necessary instructions to the alerters so that they could perform resuscitation maneuvers while the health resources arrived.
Once on the beach, the basic life support ambulance personnel verified that the man was still in cardiorespiratory arrest, so they continued to practice basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers and applied two shocks to him with the Semiautomatic External Defibrillator (DESA), managing to recover his pulse.
Later, once stabilized, the affected person was transferred in a critical condition in a medicalized ambulance to the Hospital Universitario Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria.
Finally, agents from the Local Police of Santa Cruz de Tenerife took charge of making the appropriate reports.
