Saving my father with Mark Holt

In episode #49, Paul talks to son and lifesaver Mark Holt about his father’s cardiac arrest in a remote Lake District pub. Mark takes us through the event that occurred soon after his seemingly fit and healthy father had completed a run and a walk up the Old Man of Coniston.

Just an hour before the event

Mark talks about his work as a carer and how the experience of doing CPR in a medical environment differs from doing it on a family member far away from a hospital. He talks about how it has affected him and his family, his dad’s recovery and how a previous stranger’s cardiac arrest effectively saved his dad’s life.
