At treatment right now <arilyn, the Lady in the chair across from me is being worked on by the whole team.  She has crashed badly, no pulse, no respiration.

EMT's took over and are still working with her.  Multiple shocks but no success yet.

Very worried right now.

Almost 25 minutes on manual CPR.  EMT's finaly have the auto CPR machine on her and on the way to hospital.

This isn't looking good.

Thinking of Marilyn, and all of her friends who witnessed this....

My late mum had a similar situation arise when on Haemo... The lady died, and Mum never got over it.... She was always talking about it!....

Hope all turns out well...

I have DNR orders.  Why come back to more dialysis. Just me talking.  I hope Marilyn recovers if that is what she wants.  Prayers for the Lord's will.

This is , by far, the very worst part of dialysis. I have sat and watched them work to bring back more people than I ever would have imagined. Some they succeeded, others not. I offer a prayer for Marilyn, just as all the others. It is the part that has to be blocked out each time we go for a treatment, and the part that just cannot be described to those who ask how was your session.

Prayers go out to her. Terrible. The body could only take so much of Hemo and then things happen. Your body is circulating blood around then you haw a machine pumping out the blood and circulating it while at the same time altering the composition of it then pumping it back in. Machine is going to win hte tug of war....

Sadly Marilyn didn't make it Monday.

She was a small person and I suspect even moderate take-off to smaller people has more cardiac stunning than the same take-off does to us larger people.

This is the reason I stay so hard with myself on my fluid gains.

I didn't realize that Marilyn lived a couple miles up my same road, practically neighbors.  Sadly again I will be unable to attend Services as I have an Appt with Vasc Surgeon at that time that I should not reschedule.  My fistula may need another angio and we have put that off a while already.  It won't get done that day, but it won't get scheduled if I don't go either.

Hello Charlie, I am so sorry about Marilyn and I feel sorry that you had to experience it. When I witnessed such a traumatic experience, it taught me, how much we are on life-support and such an experience brings it really home to us. I am very sorry that you had to experience it and I send you my best wishes from Kristina. :grouphug;

Feeling sad though not surprised.  :'( Saying a prayer for Marilyn and her family in this difficult time. You too, Charlie. It must have been difficult for you to watch and then learn the outcome. Life is fragile and even more so when trucking on lines filtering our blood.

Sorry about your friend, Charlie. My husband has lost some of his chair mates too. It's never easy for him. Not for anyone. He comes home to tell me and all we can do is sit awhile and think of them. Wish I could reach over and take your hand...

I've been certified in CPR and more than umpteen times.

It is frustrating to be tied to my machine sitting in that chair and NOT being able to help if they would have even let me.

I am sure this hits staff that worked on her even harder.  They tried so hard,  did CPR and used their shock pack.  I don't remember the name of that thing.  The automatic shocker thatmeasures and calculates the amount and timing of the jolt.  It has saved a number of lives, just not this time.

I just have to Believe that the Lord decided that this was the time that He wanted her to come home to Him.

Belief allows me to continue.

Take Care All.

Though it may seem otherwise, this is difficult on the staff as well. I have held the hand of a tech as tears filled her eyes after our unit lost a patient. We often criticize them but seldom take the time to understand exactly what it is they do. We have lost people who have been on dialysis longer than some of our techs or nurses have been alive. They have known these patients the entire time they have worked here. It cannot be easy for them. I know it is something that, regarless how many times I see it, it will never be easy, and it is also something I struggle with telling my family about because I do not want to increase their worries each time I leave the house for a dialysis treatment.
