A young man was saved by the quick thinking and CPR administration by a NY state police trooper. The young man was weight lifting when he became unconscious and was not breathing. The CPR administration by the officer saw the man breathing briefly. The 911 was called while an employee brought an AED to the officer who attached it to the man to give him the first shock. This was followed by more CPR and a second shock. The man eventually started breathing on his own when he was about to give him mouth-to mouth.

Critical Care Providers Should Know

Compared to the other states in the nation, the state of New York is fairly average in terms of the health issues. There are a few health issues in which it performs much better than average such as having less infant mortality, fewer people who are obese, and fewer people who smoke. However, there are other areas in which the citizens of New York should be concerned. For example, the state has a higher-than-average number of people with high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Also, there are a high number of people who have diabetes in New York.

New York City is one of the largest population centers in the world. The administrators of the New York Department of Health work hard to determine how to serve a large and diverse urban population as well as care for the citizens in the more underdeveloped and more rural parts of the state.

One way that New York has addressed the issue is by issuing grants to doctors who work in "underserved communities". In December of 2011, five doctors were awarded grants that totaled up to $500,000 in order to help with the research and care of their patients. By issuing these grants, the state of New York is also hoping to entice more doctors to work in rural parts of the state.

About New York

Immortalized by iconic crooner and actor Frank Sinatra, and the basis for many a TV show, movie, and even video game, the state of New York is full of history, culture, and of course, people. One of the original thirteen colonies in the United States, New York is the third most populated state within the US, with one of the most populated cities.

Founded in 1624, New York is a powerful state, known for the urban and big city areas, such as Brooklyn and New York City. NY has the largest subway system in the U.S., along with cab drivers, completing what is a great public transportation system.

A hub of culture, New York is often thought to give rise to many actors, actresses, directors, and other entertainers. Many wide eyed entertainers head off to New York in order to find their place either on the stage or in theater in general. Broadway is often home to the best in theater and stage productions, with many famous works not only performing there, but repeatedly returning.

One of the most recognized features of the state is that of the Statue of Liberty. For many immigrants who came over from Europe during World War II saw the good lady as they first entered the country they would be living in. Ellis Island was a first stop for these people to be fully American citizens.

This is reflected in New York's diverse residents - from Russian to Hispanic to of course Italian, these residents are usually seen as the melting pot that is the United States of America.

Though New York has always been a state and city in the American eye, hearts and prayers went out to the city, state, and its residents on September 11, 2001, when the famous World Trade Center towers came crashing down in an act of terrorism. The destruction not only hit the state, but that of the entire nation.

New York is a fascinating state and regardless of which city you head to, it will be enjoyable and entertaining.
