A Search for Answers in Russert’s Death - NYTimes.com
We were deeply sadden by Tim Russert's death recently. It came as a shock that a man with so much life in him was suddenly struck down.
The EMT's tried three different ways to revive Tim Russert.
Could another method had helped him? In an earlier post I talked about the reflex revival technique. We have used it with success and hope someday that it will be studied and then adopted as a revival technique.
The longest neuron in the body runs from the center of the big toe into the brain stem. It has no breaks and connects into an area which is related to consciousness. There are interruptions in this neuron. It has a straight shot into the metabolic areas of the brain. A strongly applied pressure can cause a strong stimulation to the electrical system of the body. It may be able to kick start the nervous system. We have done it twice where there seemed no signs of life.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 250,000 lives each year. I lost two of my brothers to it.
It is not clear that a new revival technique would have saved Tim Russert. But with these kind of statistics it seems like it would be worth investigating.
We will miss you. Tim.
