When Seconds Count: How a Quick Diagnosis Saved a Young Woman’s Life
By Linda Hertzberg, MD
It’s amazing when events that seem to be “miracles” happen, and even more magical to be a part of them, however peripherally.
Recently my husband, David Merzel, MD, a physician anesthesiologist and pediatric intensive care specialist, and his patient, 17-year-old Chiann Wheeler, told the remarkable story of Chiann’s brush with death from sepsis, and how David’s quick diagnosis saved her life.
They were the featured speakers at the Larry Carr Memorial Golf Event dinner and auction on September 24, 2015 hosted by the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital (BMH) Foundation to benefit the Lauren Small Children’s Medical Center.
