Medic One Celebrates 50 Years of CPR
Seattle’s Medic One is known for its survival rates of victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Much of this success can be attributed to Dr. Cobb’s innovative idea to teach all citizens how to administer CPR when a paramedic or doctor is not around. Today, more than 800,000 Seattle residents have been trained in CPR.
