On Wednesday, June 28, Cardiac Cath Lab employees Daniel Gallagher, RN, and James Bunch, RTR, assisted Dr. Laszlo Fuzesi and the CT-ICU staff at the St. Elizabeth Campus in placing an emergent IABP (Balloon Pump), ultimately helping to save a patient's life. They quickly responded to the call for help and went far outside of their comfort zone to perform this life-saving measure at the patient's bedside. The patient was very unstable and was deteriorating quickly when the Cardiac Cath Lab team intervened and assisted in saving her life. Thank you, Daniel and James, we're proud of the difference you made!
