Staying focused or having the ability to reasonably act in a panicking or challenging situation where your senses sometimes go numb is a man’s biggest strength. But, keeping your composure is not such an easy task. However, despite the odds, this man has put forth a heroic story in which he does a braver task of saving himself.
A male nurse, who chose to hide his identity, was the only professional on duty at Nursing Coral Bay, 1000 km from Perth, Australia. On duty, he experienced severe chest pain and dizziness. He was well aware of the fact that he will not make it to the next medical facility which was 150 km away and it was revealed to him that he has to be his own savior.
He composed himself and hooked to an EKG machine that showed a complete heart block due to an evolving heart attack. To confirm the diagnoses, he then performed the second EKG and immediately emailed the results through ETS, emergency telehealth service, and availed the services of a medical doctor who addressed him through real-time video.
According to South China morning post, the report also appeared in New England Journal of Medicine. Then, he inserted intravenous lines in his arms to administer his lungs that included aspirins, blood thinners and a clot-dissolving drug called Tenecteplase.
The earlier mentioned report talked about how he dealt when he came to know he is having a heart attack.
“HE ATTACHED HIS OWN DEFIBRILLATOR PADS AND PREPARED ADRENALINE, ATROPINE, AND AMIODARONE,” WHICH ARE DRUGS TO TREAT HEART RHYTHM PROBLEMS’’
He was lucky that his plan of action worked, blessing him with a new life. Though he did have a basic know-how of how the things and this method may not be applicable to everyone, his bravery can still not be disregarded.
