Fast Action for Heart Attack Saves a Life

Fast Action for Heart Attack Saves a Life


>>Got to El Camino,
they took one look at me and pushed me right through. I didn’t even sit on the chair. I just said, I can’t breathe,
this is it and they had me sit down and started
doing EKGs on me. Dr. Curatola came in and
they discussed it some more and they said, well we, we’re going to have a little
operation on you quickly. And so I got wooped away
and that evening I woke up and he said, okay, he said you
were very lucky, and explained to me, he said I had a,
basically I had a heart attack, but one of my veins
clogged up and that was it and they put a stent in. So they did an angioplast
on me and the whole thing. But that’s my first real
connection with El Camino. I mean if it wasn’t for
that day, and it wasn’t that Dr. Curatola was
somewhere in the hospital, I would not have, I don’t
think I would be here. [ Pause ] El Camino hospital was able
to treat me and get me back to where I am 100%
fully functional. It’s the medical staff
at El Camino hospital. The hospital is just a building. The people in it make it. In the areas of heart
surgery, it is definitely one of the best in the world. And, and I believe I got the
best care I could get anywhere in the world, right here.
