RoyOnRescue Interviews Lifeguard Who Rescued Poolside Patient

Three cheers for our heroic Lifeguards!  In this episode, I get the opportunity to speak with Logan Evans, the Life Guard who was part of a three person team of First Aid providers who helped a woman who had apparently had a seizure and fallen in the Women’s shower room at a local pool!  The problem was that there was a pool full of people and the patient was trapped in a locked shower stall half in and half out of the door on the ground.  Watch this interview to see how Logan, Certified Lifeguard, sprung into action to help this person through this scary and potentially life threatening situation.

Roy Shaw TV Interview With “Ask The Expert”.

A while back I had the honor of being asked to be on the health care panel for a local television show called,  “Ask The…”.   In this episode, Shelly Irwin had wanted several representatives from different types of medical response agencies.  The Hospital ER, the Ambulance on the street and a paramedic in education.  It was a lot of fun and though it’s a bit long and my mike is turned up a little high, I thought some of you might like to here what the different types of medical responders do and how they look at things from their world.   I loved being a street paramedic but I really love being able to host RoyOnRescue and create life saving video trainings that are watched all around the world.

Hope you enjoy it.

Oh yeah, did I say it’s 26 minutes long?   Might want to refresh that beverage of choice before you begin! : )

Watch A Real Cardiac Arrest and Survival! Plus Patient Interview Post Resuscitation.

I wanted to share this video with you.  We know sudden cardiac arrest happens almost every 2 minutes to someone in the U.S. but we rarely get a chance to watch a real cardiac arrest occur, see the rescue caught on a security camera and then hear the patient talk about his experience so that everyone can learn from it.  If you or someone you know does not know how to provide CPR, please go to and watch the free CPR training by clicking on the training video tab.  Or simply click here after  you watch the video below.

This is the concluding episode of the interview between Clint Crabtree, MMA Champion, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt and Owner of Grand Rapids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  In this final part of the interview with Clint, he explains in more detail how he manages his diet combined with exercise and how it’s redefining the way we think about living with diabetes type 1 or type 2.  If you have diabetes, want to prevent diabetes or maybe know someone who is diabetic, you won’t want to miss this final part of a very enlightening interview.
