UFC Heavyweight Shane Del Rosario Suffers Cardiac Arrest
UFC Heavyweight Shane Del Rosario is in critical condition following a catastrophic cardiovascular collapse on Tuesday morning.
â€œShane del Rosario had a catastrophic cardiovascular collapse at home on Tuesday morning,â€ said del Rosario’s manager Jason House. â€œHe was brought to the hospital in full cardiac arrest. He was resuscitated in the emergency room back to a stable heart rhythm and blood pressure. He is currently in the coronary care unit critically ill. Our prayers are with him and his family.â€
Training partner Erik Apple posted an update on the UG and followed it up with more info while speaking with Sherdog.com:
“He was supposed to fight next months UFC on the 28th,” posted Apple. “He’s in great shape right now. I was at the hospital yesterday and I will be going back in a few hours. It’s very serious and life threatening but there have been positive signs. Ian Mccall found him and possibly saved his life with CPR until the ambulance got there.”
â€œYesterday there was very little hope for him to even make it past that day,â€ said Apple. â€œIt was down to the point where his liver and kidneys werenâ€™t functioning. He was on dialysis. They had to give him the maximum amount of medication that they can, just so they could get his blood pressure at an acceptable level.
â€œSince then, heâ€™s actually had some positive signs. No. 1, his kidneys are functioning… he doesnâ€™t have any problems with his organs right now as far as I know. Early this morning they began weaning him of off the blood pressure medication.â€
â€œHe had some response this morning. A nurse said he sort of readjusted himself and turned his head. To me that means his brain is coming back online. If heâ€™s moving and having some kind of reaction those are all positive signs.”
â€œFrom what weâ€™re told, if Shane is going to survive, and heâ€™s going to be OK, it would be a big deal.”
