'Dead' Man Comes Back to Life After 45 Mins with 17 Electric Shocks

A man in his thirties initially went to Khorfakkan Hospital with an irregular heartbeat. He later experienced a cardiac arrest but was successfully revived after an intense 45-minute battle for his life.

At the hospital, he complained of an irregular heartbeat, which led to a cardiac arrest. Doctors quickly started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and administered 17 electrical shocks and 15 doses of adrenaline to stimulate his heart. The diagnosis revealed a potentially life-threatening coronary artery thrombosis.

After these efforts, a clot-dissolving agent was used alongside ongoing CPR. A cardiologist's assessment following the cardiac arrest confirmed acute coronary blockage through Electrocardiogram (ECG) findings.

To ensure his cardiac stability, he was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and placed on a ventilator in preparation for a coronary angiography procedure at Fujairah Hospital. Surprisingly, the Cardiology team at Fujairah Hospital confirmed a 100% success rate in dissolving the clot, with no blockages or clots in the coronary artery.

As his condition stabilized, he returned to Khorfakkan Hospital for further treatment. Daily monitoring showed significant improvement in his cardiac function, reaching 55%. Once his condition was stable, he moved to the Internal Medicine department. He spent eight days in medical care, including two days in the ICU and six days in the Internal Medicine department.

He was discharged from the hospital in excellent health. His treating physician provided clear instructions on prescribed medications and the importance of regular follow-up appointments at the cardiology clinic to monitor his progress and ensure continued well-being.
