A 63-year-old man has been hospitalized in critical condition after being recovered from a cardiorespiratory arrest in a hotel located in the municipality of Arona, in Tenerife, as reported by the Emergency and Security Coordination Center (Cecoes) 1-1-2.

The event occurred shortly after 11:30 a.m., when the 1-1-2 operating room received an alert requesting medical assistance for a man who had fainted and was rendered unconscious while playing tennis on a hotel court.

The hotel pool lifeguard provided first aid to the affected person and after verifying that he was in cardiorespiratory arrest, he began to perform resuscitation maneuvers. After receiving instructions via telecare from the SUC coordinating doctor present in the operating room, he applied the hotel facility’s semiautomatic defibrillator until the arrival of health personnel, who continued practicing advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers, managing to reverse the arrest.

The person affected, after being stabilized by health personnel, was transferred in critical condition in a medicalized ambulance from the SUC to the Hospiten Sur University Hospital.
