Amy Rea is being called a walking miracle. After an hour in cardiac arrest, her pulse returned thanks to a tireless, determined and dedicated team of professionals at Hillcrest Hospital South performing non-stop CPR.
After she collapsed at work, first responders brought her to Hillcrest, where she went into cardiac arrest. Ankit Chothani, M.D., an interventional and peripheral endovascular cardiology specialist, treated her for a suspected pulmonary embolism while several other staff gave her chest compressions for about an hour to revive her.
