After emergency CPR, the patient was sent straight to the operating room where open heart surgery was performed and the ECMO team was utilized. The patient's life was saved and after thirteen days, she was discharged from the hospital.

Later, a 39 year old male police officer was running when he fell to the ground and went into cardiac arrest। After arriving at Min-Sheng, the patient was rushed to the operating room where the ECMO machine was used and open heart surgery was performed.
