Bedford, man suffers cardiac arrest – Magpas Air Ambulance called to him


At 11:40am this morning (10th) Magpas Doctor Charlotte Haldane and Paramedic Steve Chambers arrived in Bedford via a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicle. They had been called to treat a man who had suffered a cardiac arrest.

Fortunately when the Magpas enhanced medical team arrived bystanders were administering CPR. The Magpas Doctor-Paramedic team assessed the patient (in his 70’s) and placed the man into a medically induced coma at the scene (providing him with A&E level care) before accompanying the man to Papworth Hospital via land ambulance. The patient was in a very serious but stable condition upon arrival.

An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew and Bedfordshire Police were also in attendance.

We have no further information.
