Acadian Medics Reunite with Miracle Baby
Date:5/24/2013

(PRWEB) May 24, 2013

This week is National EMS Week, which recognizes and honors emergency professionals and their efforts to provide the best emergency care and to improve health communications in communities. The mission of this week is also to educate the public that all can play a role in the chain of survival. Citizens are the first link, and a very important one. According to the American Heart Association, proper bystander CPR after a cardiac arrest can triple a victim’s chance of survival.

Fortunately for little Rivers Quibodeaux, his parents had received proper CPR tutelage while he was in the neonatal intensive care unit due to being premature.

On February 26th, two-month-old Rivers’ parents, Jules and Emily Quibodeaux, found him unresponsive in his crib. Emily immediately began CPR, and Jules called 911 and was transferred to Acadian Ambulance. While taking turns giving Rivers CPR, the Quibodeauxs stayed on the line with Dispatcher Paramedic Kendra Alleman, who gave them additional instructions and kept them calm.

“Kendra was so comforting,” said Jules. “It was nice to have a voice of hope on the other end of the line.”

Acadian Medics David Savoy, Kimberley Leger, and Ian Mixon arrived on scene and took over resuscitative efforts, obtaining a faint pulse, and transported Rivers to a landing zone where Flight Paramedic Brady Wanersdorfer and an Air Med helicopter were waiting. Rivers was released from the hospital a few weeks later with no neurological deficits.

The medics were all very inspired by the courageous Rivers, who is now five-months-old, and stayed in touch with the family to receive updates. However, the whole situation hit very close to home for Wanersdorfer. He, too, coded as a baby, and his own father did CPR until the ambulance arrived to bring him to a medical helicopter. Wanersdorfer made many visits to the hospital to see Rivers, and was excited to visit with him again when he and his fellow medics reunited with the Quibodeauxs last week.

“Seeing Rivers doing so well is amazing, and it truly brings to light the importance of early CPR,” said Wanersdorfer. “If his parents wouldn’t have begun CPR right away, he wouldn’t be here today. They are the true heroes.”

The Quibodeauxs have since become advocates for bystander CPR, creating a video that was played at a recent Be a Heartstarter event. “You need to familiarize yourself with CPR, because you don’t think you are going to have to do it, but no one plans for this,” said Emily.

She continued, “It saved his life.”

Acadian Ambulance is committed to their patients and their communities. They are an emergency and non-emergency medical transportation provider to Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi.

Since 1971, Acadian has provided the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation possible. In the past decade, the company has expanded to include a diverse suite of services in health, safety, and transportation. Acadian’s six divisions are Acadian Ambulance Service, Acadian Monitoring Services, Air Med, Executive Aircraft Charter Service, National EMS Academy and Safety Management Systems.
