    APPLE WATCH CATCHES GRANDMOTHERS HEART CONDITION, POSSIBLY SAVING HER LIFE The couple went missing in a snowstorm after spending a weekend with friends on November 3. Rescuers located Marsh in time after her husband sent friends photographs of their location. She was flown by air ambulance to the ValldHebron Hospital in Barcelona, where she was connected to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine. The machine stands in for the heart and lungs, pumping blood through the arteries and heating it, which raises the body temperature.Doctors believed she could survive if they treated the hypothermia. This is an exceptional case on a global scale, Eduard Argudo, a doctor from the Vall dHebron hospital told a press conference.There are practically no cases of people being revived after their heart has stopped for so long.

Eduard Argudo said the sharp fall in her body temperature may have saved her as the cold preserved her organs. Six hours after entering cardio-respiratory arrest, Marshs heart began to beat naturally again. Marsh, who spent 11 days in hospital recovering, has not suffered any long-term brain damage but has trouble moving her hands which were affected by the cold. When I went home I had damage to my hands. I could not do up my buttons on trousers or put in my earrings. These are small things which are going to get better, she said. Rohan Schoeman, Rohan Schoeman, 36, who is South African and works as a teacher, said the couple had spent the weekend with friends but left early morning without them.
