Heart Stopping Moment For Jay

Heart Stopping Moment For Jay

Heart problems seem to be the order of the day for Derby players at the moment!

After Rams youngster Mark O'Brien was forced to have surgery on a heart problem diagnosed during a routine examination Jay McEveley has revealed that his own routine surgery on his fractured cheekbone saw his heart stop for two minutes!

"I've had operations under general anaesthetic before and I thought this would just be another routine procedure, but it didn't go according to plan. My heart decided to stop when I was on the operating table.

Obviously, I didn't realise until I woke up in intensive care when I was wired to machines that were monitoring me and my heart.

I didn't really know where I was at first and my chest was hurting a bit but then the doctors explained to me what had happened.

I was told my heart had stopped for two minutes. When I was told it was pure shock. I couldn't believe it. It was so surreal.

If it was 10 or 20 seconds or something like that then I probably wouldn't have thought much about it but two minutes is a long time and it was very scary."

McEveley was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

The 24-year-olds heart could've stopped due to a reaction to the anaesthetic given to him, however McEveley says that he's had several operations with no affects previously so this probably happened due to one of the contacts they put over you eyes. Plenty of nerves in your face are connected to your heart so if one of these is touched it can slow you heart rate, which due to his fitness levels being so high means this resting pulse is slow any way so it just stopped altogether!

Thankfully the Scottish international was resuscitated and made his return to the squad for last nights vital win against Coventry, even though this was only among the subs.
