"CPR in America" program features Golisano Children's Hospital patient

"CPR in America" program features Golisano Children's Hospital patient

Rebecca and Mark Knowles saved their son Cameron's life because they knew CPR. After his cardiac arrest, Cameron was eventually transferred to UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital where he was diagnosed with Long QT Syndrome, a disorder of the heart's electrical activity that can cause sudden and dangerous arrhythmias. 

Second Opinion, WXXI's national healthcare series, has formed an exciting partnership with the American Heart Association to produce a national television special designed to teach Hands-Only CPR to all of America, and the Knowles' story is a part of it.
