Today, SCCEMS Paramedics John Ryan and Jake Barnes, as well as Union Fire Co #1 Ambulance Division EMTs Mike Syska and Beth Case, were visited by a very special patient. On 23 November, Mr Curtis Greer went into cardiac arrest at his house in Oxford. Through the quick efforts of his wife and son starting CPR and calling 9-1-1 and the EMS patient care team of EMTs Syska and Case and paramedics Ryan and Barnes, Mr. Greer was resuscitated in the field. Aggressive care was continued by the EMS team while he was transported to the Christiana Hospital Emergency Department and Cardiac Care Team where he went an emergent cardiac catheterization. After 2 weeks in the hospital, Mr. Greer was discharged home. He is doing well with his recovery and wanted to stop by and thank his rescuers.
