Today the miraculous story of how paramedics saved a man’s life using new technology broke. The original incident happened in January but thanks to new health guidelines released this week the story is once again in the headlines. In January Howard Snitzer’s heart stopped due to a heart attack and if it had not been for a new technology called capnography experts say there is no way Snitzer would have survived.

What made Snitzer’s story so unique is that his heart had stopped for over an hour and a half but the paramedics knew to continue working on him because their capnography machine showed he had a chance of survival. The capnography system is able to monitor carbon dioxide in a person’s breath to show the chances of survival as well as help medical teams determine what exactly is the problem. The paramedics that responded to Snitzer were reportedly some of the first to have the new technology and they say without the machine they would have been forced to give up on Snitzer well before the one hour mark.


Holy crap!! 96 Minutes? Well for those that thing technology is a bad thing, wait until something similar happens and gold old technology comes along and keeps you alive and kicking.

This is a truly amazing story and a testament for all the new technologies that are knocking on our doors waiting to be used in an emergency setting.

Good to know that this stuff is out there so when I get old I can hopefully be able to die a few times.


Any thoughts?

I see a "I visited Jesus in Heaven" book on the horizon.

That is really a long time though...

What I would LOVE to find out is whether or not this guy has a NDE story to share with us. His memory may take a while to recover... Hmmm so very interesting.

I think this is wonderful! The American Heart Association is right...every hospital etc. should have one of these new machines and technology.

I would really like to find out....what went on with the man during those 96 minutes...what did he experience on the other side?

Here is a good article about this from CBS news.

All I can really think about is how terrible the grammar in that article is when its coming from a supposed professional source. Don't get me wrong- its an awesome story. I just had trouble reading that. Though I don't have exceptional grammar skills and I don't usually pay any attention to it.

What I want to know is whether this fellow had any brain damage due to blood oxygen levels? I am sure that this is cool as heck but the sideeffects could be debilitating

That's a good point. Isn't there a floating myth that it takes seven minutes to die after your heart stops beating?

That is a good point but maybe the blood was not completely depleted of oxygen. It says in the original article that the machine detects carbon monoxide in the blood to tell if the machine will work, maybe that is something similar. Maybe that is part of it can save you, if your brain could still be revived and work properly.

But, I do remember hearing something about 8-12 minutes and your brain suffers. I thought after you die you still had 12 minutes of brain function. I thought all the '___' in your brain is released putting you on a massive dream/trip, maybe that's what this guy had for 96 minutes.

I do bet he has some crazy stories.

So it sounds like the standard methods of reviving people after cardiac arrest was done, but the new technology just allows them to know with more certainty when intervention won't work. So before this new tech, it sounds like they were perhaps stopping resuscitation a bit prematurely in some cases. Not a lot of specifics in the article but seems to be the case.

I had a near death experience when i was younger. When i was dead i felt so happy, at harmony, at peace. I went through the tunnel and seen the bright light. I was told by a family member who passed away before i was born to go back, its not my time. I explained to my father and his brother what there dead brother, my uncle looked like and how he sounded, they were amazed on how accurate i was and it made them emotional. Its nice ware i went to but its nice to experience being human on this physical world too. I'm so happy to hear we are making progress on finding ways to save peoples life better and faster.
