The 8 seconds of dying with Jamie Poole

In episode #38, Paul talks with cardiac arrest survivor Jamie Poole, an Australian in London.

Jamie had his first cardiac arrest when he was just 20 years and puts his survival down to wearing a suit. After Jamie’s first close call he gets an ICD and takes us through his experiences of having numerous appropriate shocks, of which he knows by the feeling that has become the 8 seconds of dying.

Having a serious heart condition hasn’t stopped Jamie from having a positive outlook on life and his eagerness to make the most of it by seeing the world is very refreshing.
