Woman Declared Clinically Dead Revived After 42 Minutes

Published August 19, 2013

News Corp Australian Papers

Australian doctors have saved the life of a woman who was clinically dead for 42 minutes.

The miracle patient was rushed to hospital after a major heart attack, but was declared clinically dead soon after arrival.

With the aid of a hi-tech machine that kept blood flowing to her brain, doctors at Melbourne's MonashHeart managed to unblock vital arteries and return her heart to a normal rhythm.

The hospital today described her survival as, "astonishing".

Doctors say Vanessa Tanasio, 41, a mother of two from the suburb of Narre Warren, needed numerous defibrillator shocks, including one in the ambulance on her way to hospital.

In a telephone interview from the hospital, she said she was eager to get home. "I'm feeling excellent. For someone who has been dead for nearly an hour of this week I am feeling tremendously well."

Emergency medics used a device called LUCAS 2 to keep her blood flowing last Monday while cardiologist Dr Wally Ahmar worked to unblock the arteries to her heart.

Tanasio, a sales representative for an earthmoving equipment company, said she had no history of heart problems.

"This has taken me completely by surprise. I am relieved to still be here for my children. The doctors and the nurses have been awesome. The machine is awesome."

Some sights won't let you click on them if they are copyrighted. I hate that.

They called the man a, "behind," though.

Thank you for the pictures of Lucas. You moderators are too fast for me

Re: Woman Declared Clinically Dead Revived After 42 Minutes

That is incredible. From the headline I was worried she would be brain dead or have severe brain damage from being clinically dead that long. But then I see the machine kept the blood flowing to her brain. That is wonderful. That is a great machine. I hope more hospitals can get one.

Modern medicine miracle.
And a heart attack at only 41. No history of heart problems. Not overweight. Completely unexpected. We just never know how our day will turn out, do we?

We truly don't know. You are right. I imagine she is probably very focused on her health now.

Would be interesting to hear what she experienced / saw during the time she was dead. If anything....

Nope! When our number is up, it's up

We've seen cars that we wouldn't expect to see anyone survive with survivors and cars that looked like they sustained hardly any damage with fatalities.

This woman could be one of those junk food eaters who remains thin, but, has a high percentage of body fat, like bulimics and anorexics, whose organs fail.

If you and Meg click on the link I added, there is a video of what the machine does for the heart. Interesting, to say the least.
