The Emergency Room Staff at Central Peninsula Hospital knew the odds were stacked heavily against my wife Karen on September 7, 2011when our son and I drove into the ER entrance with my wife Karen in a full ventricular cardiac arrest. The first five minutes in a cardiac arrest are absolutely critical. The Emergency Room team knew right away that we were in our car and only 2 minutes from the hospital when my wife was stricken. They did not give up their resuscitation efforts.
