Today the Head of Community Response for East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Mick Barnett-Connolly, came out responding in Northampton.

During his short visit he managed to attend two jobs in the new Community Response Vehicle (CFR05). First job of the day was a report of an unconscious male in a park ? Cardiac Arrest. This was quickly followed by another call for a male in Cardiac Arrest a short distance away.

Mick was amazed by the team work of everyone involved, ranging from the Paramedic Team Leader, Emergency Care Practitioner, Paramedics and Community First Responder during the attempted resuscitation of the patient.

The new LUCAS 2 Chest Compression System Р(Physio Control) was deployed and a successful Return of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC) was achieved, patient transported to local hospital for further treatment.

“It was a pleasure taking Mick out responding today, its great to show him what we do best” – Andy Simpson (Scheme Co-ordinator).
