Special Vest Saves Moore Man's Life During Cardiac Arrest
A Moore man is grateful he’ll be around to enjoy Father’s Day this Sunday.
Michael Adams is 59 years old, and on Feb. 17, he suffered a massive heart attack.
His cardiologist at Integris Southwest Medical Center Dr. Ryan Norris outfitted him with what’s known as a LifeVest Wearable Defibrillator.
Eight days later, Adams suffered a cardiac arrest at work, but his LifeVest shocked his heart back into rhythm.
“A gracious God, good doctor, and a wonderful family,” Adams said Friday afternoon.
Integris said the LifeVest Wearable Defibrillator has saved at least a dozen lives in Oklahoma so far this year.
Sudden cardiac arrest is the #1 killer in America. Oklahoma ranks #2 nationally in sudden cardiac deaths.
