What's Going On With Damar Hamlin? (Video)


Damar Hamlin recently underwent a terrifying incident on the football field, suffering a cardiac arrest and needing CPR. Fortunately, the medical staff was able to jump into action and apply CPR quickly enough that they repaired his heartbeat while rushing him to the hospital in an ambulance. 

Now, he is in the ICU, sedated while receiving the best care possible. 

As someone with experience as a Unit Secretary in the CVICU, I can confidently say that his medical team is providing top-quality services. Let me explain to you what is happening to him in the ICU.
