Cabarrus Hearts and Heroes 2013

The Hearts and Heroes video was produced in collaboration with Cabarrus County EMS and Carolinas Medical Center-Northeast for the annual Hearts and Heroes survivor celebration.  The Hearts and Heroes event brings back patients who survived an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Cabarrus County and reunites them with the telecommunicators, first responders, EMTs, paramedics, nurses and doctors that helped save their lives.  The event is held annually.  This video was made to both highlight the process of how a cardiac arrest is worked in Cabarrus County, but also to have actual patient testimonial. This video does a great job showing the many links in the chain of survival and just how important each link is.
