Dr Stephanie Krebs Louka knows from first hand experience that CPR saves lives.
Several years ago Dr Louka began her journey into emergency medicine as a volunteer EMT with VA Beach EMS.As an EMT she was taught “Healthcare Provider CPR.” While on duty Stephanie used her training to save a patients life and was recognized by the local EMS community.
Most recently Stephanie and her husband Dr Amir Louka [also a volunteer EMT in VA Beach] experienced the positive results of early CPR intervention when their 13 month old daughter, Evie went into cardiac arrest and was saved by CPR provided by a daycare worker.
Stephanie and Amir encourage the public to learn community “Hands Only CPR.”
Dr Stephanie Louka recently met the day care worker who saved Evie’s life. Watch the emotion video at: VCUDayCareWorkerSavesALife
