Springing into action
Andy’s sudden cardiac arrest story

Andy Hannan was playing walking football when he collapsed on the field from a sudden cardiac arrest. Thankfully, one of his co-players, Sue, a first aid volunteer, immediately sprang to action. Watch how she saved his life with the help of the system of care.

I told Sue in person how very grateful I was that she’d made a big difference to me: the difference between life and death, and I’m very grateful for what she did that night.

Game-changing innovations
Jeff’s total shoulder replacement story

With the help of Blueprint technology, a surgeon restores the shoulder—and the hope—of a former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher.

"I’m not trying to throw the ball 90 miles an hour anymore, but if we want to go out and play catch, I know I can do it," he says. The first time being able to go out and throw with my son was great for me. But it was even greater for him.
