Patient Thanks Doctors and Nurses for Saving Her Life 1 Year After Near-Fatal Heart Attack

By Sharon Aron Baron

Parkland resident Lisette Caro, 50, and her family paid a visit to Broward Health Coral Springs, but this time with happy tears of gratitude to the doctors and nurses for saving her life.

Caro was brought to their Emergency Department last year in full cardiac arrest. Thankfully, her 14-year-old daughter performed CPR that bought Caro time before a  full medical team worked on her with aggressive treatment trying to save her life. 

Gary Lai, D.O., Chief of Emergency Medicine at Broward Health Coral Springs, recalls this as a moment in his medical career that he will never forget. 

“What stands out to me most is the miraculous turnaround that she made,” he said. “Once we were able to get her family at her bedside, it really was a miracle how she turned around. She has amazing kids who were able to jump into action and save mom.”

Caro said that she never thought she’d suffer a cardiac incident because her blood pressure was usually low, she never had a problem with her heart, nor did she have a history of cardiac disease in her family.

“It was very unexpected,” she said.

Today, Caro says she appreciates and loves her family a little more after beating the odds.
