    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. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUT LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER When she arrived at the hospital, Mashsheart was showing no electrical activity and her kidneys and lungs were not functioning, doctors said. 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. At one point the snowfall became very heavy. We found a rock and tried to use it for shelter to avoid adverse weather conditions. Once visibility improved, I could see that our friends had tried to contact us, audrey was losing consciousness so I tried to send some photos to our friends of where we were.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    I don't believe in coincidence. I mean, all things happen for a reason and for a lesson too. Yes, you just heard me right. Everything that do happen under this planet earth/world whether good or bad, favourable or unfavourable is meant for a reason and for a lesson to be learnt by all humans. Now, that infers, nothing goes for nothing. You've got to accept the above fact. Because, even the scripture has said it long ago before now in ROMANS 8 : 28. It says, all things work together for good of them that love God i.e. even that your so seemed failure, disappointments, setbacks and stuffs like that, will sooner or later turn out for your good/betterment. Oh! Yes, that's just what will be your fate/portion. If only you do believe/accept the above fact. For, until you believe, that's when you will surely see/receive from God. Scripture reference JOHN 11 : 40. Never forget, whatever you undoubtedly believe in, definitely works for you and never against you. That is that.
