CPR saves Asian pilgrim who collapsed outside Prophet's Mosque
Medical teams at the Bab Jibril Health Center, next to the Prophet's Mosque in Madinah, have managed to save the life of an Asian Umrah pilgrim who collapsed in the mosque's yard after his heart stopped.
Madinah Health Complex said that the emergency department of Bab Jibril Health Center was informed about the patient's condition by the Red Crescent. When emergency units arrived at the location, the man was unconscious, and an initial examination showed that his heart and breathing had stopped.
Medical teams at the center applied cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for 20 minutes until the man's heart beating was revived and he started breathing. The man was transferred to Madinah Munawwarah Hospital for complete tests and necessary treatment. A medical regime was prepared after his health condition stabilized.
Health centers near the Prophet's Holy Mosque have been equipped and supported by the latest equipment and qualified personnel that provide 24/7 medical and treatment services to receive emergencies within the system of health services provided to visitors of the Prophet's Holy Mosque.
