When lifelong racing enthusiast Gary Zarounian, awoke in IU Health Methodist Hospital for the first time in five days, some of the first words he heard were "Do you believe in miracles?"
IU Health Physicians Cardiologist George Revtyak, MD, spoke them as Gary woke from a medically induced coma after collapsing outside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
On Sunday, July 28, 2013, Gary had just attended the Brickyard 400 and was walking across the parking lot when he collapsed onto the hood of a car and fell to the ground. Fortunately, his friends spotted him and summoned help. Immediately a nurse he never met performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and compressions on his chest. Soon after, a state trooper took over and called paramedics.
Gary was rushed to IU Health Methodist Hospital where he was placed in a medical coma to help him recover from cardiac arrest. The physician expertise and level of care provided by the Level 1 Trauma Center was critical to Gary's successful recovery over the course of 13 days.
Back on his feet and ready for more racing – Gary looks forward to supporting Methodist Health Foundation and IU Health Methodist Hospital during the month of May at Rev. He's invited Dr. Revtyak, the former state trooper who was at his aid, Sargent Wix and several paramedics to be his guest at this year's event.
"I want to help them save many more lives – just as they helped save mine."
