Way to go Dr. Zhen!

APRIL 06, 2016
By Lawrence Yee, DDS, Patient's Father

A letter was received from the father of a jogger that Dr. Zhen stopped to help. Below is an excerpt of the letter.

On Friday, May 22, 2015, my son went into cardiac arrest while jogging around in Redlands. Dr. Zhen and his wife were heading out of town when they saw a bystander performing CPR. Without hesitation, Dr. Zhen stopped the car and jumped in to help and took over CPR, not only preforming chest compression, but also administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. He worked tirelessly for 8 minutes until EMS arrived on scene. 
At the hospital, my son was intubated and placed on hypothermic protocol for 24 hours with a low chance of survival or survival with severe head injury. On May 24th, just two days after his incident, my son was extubated and immediately was able to speak coherently. Today he is functioning normally without any deficits at all.
We undoubtedly believe that Dr. Zhen played a vital part in reviving my son and we are forever grateful for his selflessness, his generosity, his skills, his perseverance and his kindness.
Way to go Dr. Zhen!
