Fabrice Muamba

Posted on: April 3rd, 2012 by Gemma

On Saturday 17th March 2012 during the FA cup match between Tottenham Hotspurs and Bolton Wanderers, Fabrice collapsed after just 41 minutes of play.

 

Fabrice was not involved in any challenge and he walked to the side of the pitch and collapsed face down.  He was not breathing and CPR immediately commenced before the defibrillator arrived. 

 

Fabrice was given 15 defibrillator shocks and was in effect dead for 78 minutes, but what saved his life was immediate CPR and having trained personal ready to give early defibrillation.  Initial CPR is crucial even before the defibrillator arrives and charges.  For every one minute a casualty’s heart is not beating 10% of their life is lost. 

 

We wish Fabrice a speedy recovery and already he has made remarkable progress.
