Color me skeptical.

Ahh, Dr. Gupta. I'm sure he's an awesome guy and a skilled surgeon, but from CNN's coverage you would think he flies around the world like Superman healing children and resurrecting the dead.

Reminds me of a layperson description of EMT I saw. It said we are trained to first open the airway and then save the life.

Hah, just read this before coming here. No thump shown, and the non-existent IV fluids appear. I don't know man.

The story failed to mention that he was also flying the helicopter. Which he owned. Oh, and the tail rotor was gone.

Brian Williams Jr. over here.

Think anyone will get up in arms if it turns out he lied?

The very general public doesn't know what the relationship between "pulseless" and "cardiac arrest" is. They are getting there on "cardiac", but I still have to explain that term from time to time.

He was also very careful to say "She was about to go into cardiac arrest".

I think that "thump" was the Gupta version of a sternal rub.
