Race Against Time | Life and Death Race in 7 Operating Rooms of Chengde County Hospital
The weekend flies by, witnessing the thrilling performance of seven emergency surgeries in the operating room of Chengde County Hospital, as well as the selfless dedication and dedicated protection of medical staff day and night.
Patient falls from a height causing splenic rupture
At around 22:00 on Saturday evening, the emergency department received a 53 year old female patient who accidentally fell from a high place and caused unbearable pain in the left chest and abdomen. The doctor conducted relevant examinations and was admitted to the hospital as "traumatic splenic rupture, acute diffuse peritonitis, ascites, multiple rib fractures". After consultation with the general surgery department and orthopedics department, she was prepared to enter the operating room for surgery urgently.
Spleen rupture is a more dangerous disease in surgical emergencies, with rapidly changing conditions. Patients with large amounts of bleeding are prone to hypovolemic shock and even life-threatening conditions.
Time is life, and medical personnel from general surgery, anesthesia and surgery departments and other departments race against time to rescue. As expected, during the surgery, Zhang Jinwu, the assistant director of the general surgery department, and others discovered a large amount of bleeding in the patient’s abdominal cavity, about 1000 milliliters, and multiple lacerations of the spleen, with long and deep lacerations. The injury was very critical, and everyone quickly and systematically treated it accordingly.
The patient was fortunate. After his injury, he was promptly admitted to the hospital, and medical staff provided timely assistance. The surgery was successful, and he has now recovered from the crisis.
Patient has significant bleeding during ectopic pregnancy
Gynecological ectopic pregnancy patients need immediate surgery... "Around 6am on Sunday, a sudden phone call rang in the operating room, marking the beginning of a busy day on Sunday. Medical staff immediately began preparing for gynecological emergency surgery.
The patient Yu, 45 years old, had irregular vaginal bleeding a month ago, thinking it was menstrual disorders and not taking it seriously. On the day of treatment, he was awakened by sudden lower abdominal pain while sleeping, accompanied by irregular vaginal bleeding, nausea, vomiting, and other symptoms. He urgently came to the hospital and was admitted to the hospital under the condition of "intraperitoneal bleeding ectopic pregnancy" after relevant examinations by the doctor.
Ectopic pregnancy, also known as’ ectopic pregnancy ’, refers to the fertilized egg staying outside the uterine cavity and growing and developing. Embryos outside the uterus cannot survive for a long time. When the embryo grows to a certain extent, it can rupture the area that contains it, causing severe bleeding and endangering the patient’s life.
The condition is an order, and cannot tolerate any delay. The green channels of various relevant departments such as Obstetrics and Gynecology, Anesthesiology and Surgery, and Laboratory are unobstructed, and medical staff work together to provide precise treatment. After making every effort to rescue, the patient finally escaped danger.
Patient experiences an accident with severe head injury
The gynecological surgery has not yet ended, and a patient who suffered a severe head injury due to an accident was pushed into the operating room.
Zhao, 65 years old, unfortunately encountered a car accident and was called 120 by a kind-hearted person to be taken to the hospital by an ambulance. The patient was in critical condition at the time, with bleeding from head movements, brain tissue overflow, consciousness disorders, and urinary incontinence The hospital immediately opened a green channel for corresponding examinations, organized joint consultations among emergency departments, neurosurgery, ICU, orthopedics, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, respiratory medicine, and cardiology, formulated rescue measures, and included about 20 diagnostic conclusions such as "severe acute open craniocerebral injury", "multiple comminuted fractures of skull", "subarachnoid hemorrhage", and "acute respiratory failure" in the hospital, Simultaneously prepare for emergency surgery.
Life is paramount, and multidisciplinary treatment is essential to win a glimmer of vitality. In the operating room, monitoring instruments ticking; Under the shadowless light, the ’Green Clothed Soldier’ was engrossed in the surgery; The equipment nurse, patrol nurse, and surgeon worked closely together... Finally, the surgery, which took about 3 hours, was successfully completed, and the patient’s vital signs were stable. They were transferred to the ICU.
Emergency surgeries one after another
The tense surgery on Sunday morning left medical staff unable to take a sip of water. Just as they were preparing to have lunch, they were connected to two urgent surgical notices for acute appendicitis and acute cholecystitis from the general surgery department and one painless delivery notice from the obstetrics and gynecology department.
Acute appendicitis and acute cholecystitis are common surgical acute abdominal diseases. If not treated in a timely manner, they may cause perforation, infection, and shock in related organs, and in severe cases, can be life-threatening.
Minimally invasive technology showcases authenticity and relieves pain in critical moments. The medical team collaborated and successfully performed minimally invasive surgery on Han Han, a 12-year-old patient with acute appendicitis accompanied by localized peritonitis and ascites, and Chen, a 39-year-old migrant worker with cholecystolithiasis and cholecystitis.
Painless delivery is a thoughtful service measure jointly carried out by the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department and the Anesthesiology and Surgery Department for "comfortable medical care". It provides postpartum analgesia to control labor pain and ensure the physical and mental health of both the mother and the fetus. On the same day, the operating room urgently dispatched anesthesiologists to provide labor pain relief services for Yan, who was unable to tolerate severe labor pain at 39 weeks of pregnancy. Eventually, Yan successfully gave birth to a healthy male baby.
The patient cut the neck with a knife, causing massive bleeding
On Sunday night, the emergency department received a patient with severe bleeding from multiple cuts to the neck, shoulder, and other areas. 40 year old Luo cut his right neck and left shoulder with a knife at home. The wound was long and deep, affecting the right external jugular vein with continuous blood flow. When the injured person arrived at the hospital, his consciousness was blurred, his face was pale, and he could be in shock due to bleeding at any time, which was life-threatening.
At a critical moment, the hospital quickly opened the emergency green channel, and medical staff from the General Surgery Department, Anesthesiology and Surgery Department, among others, provided emergency rescue and performed "right external jugular vein incision debridement and suture repair surgery and left shoulder debridement and suture surgery". The patient’s condition remained stable after surgery.
The most beautiful thing in the world is the curve of life’s beat. Every time there is an emergency, the medical staff are fully committed and racing against the clock. It is their professional technology, high-quality service, and dedication that bring hope to those who are facing life threats.
Life is an unpredictable journey, sometimes accompanied by illness and struggle, bringing panic and helplessness to people; But life is also a meeting, you will always meet a group of people who value you more than yourself, a group of white angels who would rather ignore themselves than desperately rescue and protect you.
