The skills and quick actions of a physician assistant assigned to the 72nd Operational Medical Readiness Squadron potentially saved a life on Sept. 30, 2020. First Lt. Aaron O’Meara and his girlfriend, Erica Arellano, who had just received a food delivery in the lobby of their apartment, discovered an unconscious man struggling to breathe in the elevator. O’Meara determined the man was unresponsive and proceeded to drag him out of the elevator so that he could safely assess him. At the same time, Arellano called 911. “I realized he wasn’t breathing,” O’Meara said. “He just had some agonal gasps, meaning he was sort of making the effort to breathe but not getting a full breath.” Unable to find a pulse, O’Meara began CPR compressions while instructing the apartment’s security guard to go find an automatic external defibrillator.
