Filming Gregor and Judy’s Amazing Story

Posted by | 19 Mar 2015

Gregor and Judy have an amazing story to tell – and they want to share it.

The story of how Gregor was resuscitated after a sudden collapse illustrates the successful operation of the chain of survival in a rural area. Early recognition that Gregor’s heart had stopped, a call for help and bystander CPR with coaching from the Ambulance Control Centre (ACC) bought time until further help arrived. This part of rural Scotland can be difficult to reach quickly with an emergency ambulance and ACC were able to summon the help of a  community first responder to deploy a defibrillator while the paramedic crew were on their way.

The Chain of Survival worked perfectly for Gregor – how do we ensure that his experience is the norm?
