Mary HoltschneiderSaved By Those You Trained: The Honor and Privilege of Completing the Circle

As a near death survivor from a massive pulmonary embolism that struck me in my workplace parking lot in December, 2013, I was fortunate to have been found and treated by many of the healthcare provider staff that I had trained over the years. Working as a Nurse Educator at the Durham VA Medical Center and previously at Duke University Hospital, I have trained thousands of staff on emergency procedures, such as Basic and Advanced Life Support. In addition to the initial staff that resuscitated me, the staff that continued the care in the intensive care unit and stepdown unit were also those whom I had trained. Though I currently have no conscious memory of my NDE, my resuscitation was extremely extensive and my prognosis was poor. Since the event, I have come to realize that I have subconscious memory of the event and share many of the aftereffects of those who have conscious memory of their NDE. I am a Registered Nurse and former paramedic and regularly speak to healthcare provider audiences about my experience, the interprofessional teamwork that was essential to my survival, and the importance of understanding the effects that an NDE has on a patient.
