AMR Offers CPR Lessons For National Emergency Medical Services Week
Paramedic Patty Stolarz, a 30-year veteran paramedic, recalled a recent incident that illustrated the importance of the task at hand for her and other trainers Wednesday.
It was two years ago at Nashua’s YMCA, just before Christmas, said Stolarz, when a woman swimming at the pool had a medical emergency. Stolarz said the woman was pulled out of the water and the lifegaurd started CPR. EMTs arrived and took over, but the initial actions by the lifeguard made a world of difference.
