When rescue workers must halt CPR to navigate a patient to the hospital, the person’s blood pressure drops, as do chances the heart will restart. Newport Beach fire Capt. Rick Zaccaro called some Newport Beach homes “a nightmare” when it comes to trying to get the person onto a stretcher and out of the house while paramedics apply CPR. “The biggest problem with CPR is it’s not effective when you’re moving the patient,” engineer Tim Richards said.

The Rescue Heart Foundation presented an automated external defibrillator (AED) to the Boys & Girls Club of the Harbor Area on Friday.

Paul Hahn has never performed CPR, and until this month, he had only seen a defibrillator used on television. But on Aug. 4, Newport Beach Country Club's head golf pro became a hero when he used a defibrillator to bring a heart-attack victim to life on the eighth hole of the club's golf course. The man has since recovered. "The fact that he came back was probably a miracle," Hahn said. Although the odds of surviving full cardiac arrest are low, they increase depending on how quickly CPR and a defibrillator are used, Newport Beach Fire EMS manager Cathy Ord said.

NEWPORT COAST ? Lou Basenese turns 57 today, so the gift neighbors gave him on July 6 was a little early. Their gift wasn't wrapped ? it was his life. Basenese and his wife, Laura, were vacationing here from Orlando when Lou suffered a heart attack near their condo. Laura's screams for help led neighbors to call 911 and help her perform CPR until paramedics came. Updated CPR procedures done by the medics and a brand-new machine at Hoag Hospital also allowed Lou Basenese to survive what could have been a fatal attack.

Tuesday night, Covey, an Orange County Fire Authority captain, was playing basketball with his team in a recreation league at the West Newport Gym off 15th Street near Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian.
