This story follows Oscar Munoz, the current CEO of United Airlines and is about the heart failure he suffered in 2016. Oscar has always been a healthy person, even a vegan at one time, but in 2016 he suffered a major heart attack in his home. He recognized what was going on and called 911. Because they had a 12-lead EKG on board, EMS was able to deliver Oscar to the proper care where he was put on life support 38 minutes from the time he made that phone call. This life saving tech was only recently made available to all ambulances in Chicago in part because of the work of the American Heart Association.
Thanks to the Munoz family and the staff at Northwestern Hospital for sharing their story.
