Man, that kid is going to get a major guilt trip:  "I *DIED* giving birth to you, and this is how you repay me?"

You'd think an epidural would be alot easier.

I'm pretty sure that child can now either communicate with the dead, or tell the exact moment of everybody's death.

She will also win anytime the "how long were you in labor" discussion comes up.

"It was 32 hours of hell! What about you?"
"About twenty minutes."
"That's incredible, you must have felt very little pain."
"Not any, really, I was dead."

Nigrelli's coworkers jumped in, kicked her husband out of the room when they removed her bra to attach the defibrillator pads.

Because he hasn't seen them yet?

Enh.... You can debate this point of grammar for hours. "Clinically dead" is what they call it when your heart stops. The fact that your brain cells are still alive and (if blood gets oxygenated and flowing to the brain very, very soon) you could get back up and dance a merry jig doesn't change the clinical definition.

I was more amazed by how much advertising crap there was on that article. A lightbox-effect "Like us on Facebook!" thing that I had to dismiss, combined with an auto-play video ad, combined with a floating "buy Intel UltaBooks!" thing that covered the lower half of the browser.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Get AdBlock. Sometimes I use a different browser to test things for work.

CPR doesn't work like that - most people who get it and have a ROSC, like 99.95% of them - will not "get up", let alone dance a jig. In fact, they'll most usually be in a coma and require continuing support as a result of reperfusion syndrome and the shock to the brain from loss of blood flow (O2 and glucose). In fact, this is the reason we put them on ice now, and cool them down to 33-34 deg. celsius.

This is the reason that they have you immediately resume CPR after defibrillation with an AED now. Even if you did convert them into a perfusing rhythm, the first minute or two of cardiac output is ineffective at perfusing the brain and myocardium usually, and the heart muscle takes time to recover.

 Unless you have someone who is johnny on the spot - i.e. they have an implanted cardioverter/defibrillator, or someone has them already on the pads and immediately recognizes and cardioverts a lethal rhythm - they're probably not going to be conscious and screaming at you to stop pushing on their chest.

For the last time, this isn't death.

People don't come back from the dead. Sans vitals is not death, it becomes death if vitals are not restored.She had an emergency medical episode where vitals stopped, were artificially sustained by persons present, and later her vitals returned and her body is performing them itself.

You're just not using enough energy. Anything can come back to live with an 18 volt deep cycle marine battery.

Your heart can stop beating for quite a while without you 'dying'. No one who dies (no brain function) ever comes back... without an insatiable craving for human flesh or blood!

Would the AED have caused any damage to the baby?

When I took a CPR /AED class, they never said what to do if the person is pregnant. Actually they never told us if we need to do anything different for female patients at all.

One guy afterwards asked if you leave the bra on, or take it off for using the AED, no one knew the answer.

For laypeople, no. You are posing no risk to the fetus if you are using an AED because you can't get much worse than mom dead. Remember that before the child comes out that the mother is providing the majority of the circulatory support for it through the umbilicus. Also, the fetus is in distress long before the mother herself demonstrates distress.

Don't second guess, do CPR and use the AED. There are some things a trained responder might do different, but that's above a layperson level.

Also, the best practice is to cut off all clothing off the chest, bra included. You won't have anything hindering CPR or pad placement in that case.

You know she'll still boast that she can still bear more pain than men just because she gave birth. No matter that she was technically dead and had no reaction to stimulation.

She was not dead.  Dead is dead.
Her heart stopped.  Had they hooked her up to ann EEG, she would have had brain activity, ergo, not dead.

Mostly dead.

If you can't readily remove the bra for some reason, don't worry about it catching fire. MythBusters managed to make it do that, but only under rather unlikely circumstances.

Friggin teachers will do anything to get out of working.  I bet she had enough "sick days" to actually recover in a hospital while getting PAID to lay there and do nothing.  I'd also be willing to be the local union thugs insured that hospital stay was paid for by the taxpayer.

Growing up, every time my dad even thought I was being disrespectful to my mother, he'd toss the old "She could have died giving birth to you!" routine.  I used to feel guilty about that until I got older and learned that Mom was never in any danger giving birth to me or my two siblings and that Dad wasn't even there when I was born.

OTOH, my daughter did run a real risk when her twins were born, almost four years ago.  She had pre-eclampsia and was in hospital for a week on bed rest before they were born by C section.  She gained 30 lbs in fluid weight in one week before they were born and her BP was way up.  On top of that, the pre-eclampsia came back after she was home and she ended up in hospital for another week before that resolved.

She put on 80 lbs with the twins and has lost it all and is looking pretty good now.
