New audio recorded the interaction between medical personnel who treated Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin after he collapsed on the field during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football.
“I don’t like how he went down,” one person said.
Hamlin collapsed on the field seconds after he tackled Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins. He immediately received medical attention from doctors and athletic trainers before getting taken away in an ambulance.
Medical personnel can be heard calling for more medics in the recordings as they realized how grave this situation had become.
“We’re going to need everybody,” one person said on the radio channel. “All-call, all-call!”
“Call, bring everybody,” another person said on the channel. “We need an airway doctor, everybody. Bring the cot with the medics.”
It would later be determined that Hamlin suffered from cardiac arrest on the field, leading medical personnel to perform CPR on him. The audio recording had one person calling for a medical attachment that measures carbon dioxide levels to determine how well a person is breathing.
When told that the attachment is on its way, the person calling for it responds, “Yeah, you need to step it up.”
It would later be revealed that Hamlin would finally awake and be showing “substantial improvement” as he recovers from his cardiac arrest. He was first speaking only by writing as he had a tube down his throat.
His breathing tube has since been removed and he is breathing on his own. He also had a zoom call with his teammates.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
