Paul's Story

Paul Glover settled in to watch a pro basketball game after going out for dinner with his girlfriend. The 55-year-old McKeesport resident and Navy vet started feeling like he had indigestion.

"I was laying on the floor watching the game, and I started to feel like I ate too fast," says Paul.

Around midnight, Paul arrived in the emergency room at UPMC McKeesport, complaining of the increasing chest pain. The ER team took Paul to the treatment area right away and within minutes his heart went into ventricular fibrillation (VFib).

Knowing they needed to move fast, the ER team rushed Paul to the heart catheterization lab.

Paul sang the praises of all who cared for him, especially the nursing staff.

"The nurses were wonderful on every floor I was on. They took care of my every need and took me in like their own," says Paul. "I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for UPMC McKeesport."
