A Young Life Saved with Expert Emergency Care
After passing out suddenly in his home, Chris Cooper was rushed to AdventHealth East Orlando’s Emergency Department where his heart was restarted 11 times. He was then airlifted to AdventHealth Orlando, where it was discovered that he had blood clots in his lungs. He then spent 21 days in a coma and on the ECMO unit with a special pump that served as an artificial lung. After extensive rehabilitation and an expert team by his side along his journey, Chris is now living an active, healthy life.
