Surviving Cardiac Arrest - Tim Willmott's Story

One Saturday in July, 2012, Tim Willmott's heart stopped beating for almost 50 minutes. Dr. Nate Rudman and his emergency room team literally brought his life back. Then they gave him therapeutic hypothermia treatment to prevent the fever that causes postcardiac arrest brain damage. So not only did they save his life, they made sure it was a life worth living.
