A: Cardiac arrest. During delivery, her heart stopped. When the heart stops, the brain is deprived of oxygen. You get brain damage. That's why she is in the state she is in today.
Q: Dr. Towler has testified that he restored the heart beat in three (3) to five (5) minutes. In your opinion, is that an accurate estimate?
A: In my opinion it took much longer, nine (9) ten (10) minutes. There's too much brain damage.
Judge: Are you saying that failure to restore a heart-beat within nine (9) or ten (10) minutes in itself constitutes bad medical practice?
