Man saved by off-duty medical staff
    2019-02-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THREE medical workers from Shenzhen helped save an elderly man who fainted on a train from Shenzhen to Qingdao on Feb. 5.

One of them was Sun Xuedi, a nurse from Shenzhen Children’s Hospital. She was traveling back to her hometown with her child when she heard the call-out over the loudspeaker system for medical staff to come forward. Sun immediately asked other passengers in the same carriage to help take care of her child and went to the rescue of the old man.

When Sun arrived, many people were around the elderly man, who wasn’t breathing and had no pulse and no heartbeat.

Sun performed chest compressions, and a secretion came forth from the man’s mouth. After clearing his respiratory tract, Sun put on a mask before doing mouth-to-mouth.

It was the first time in 14 years that Sun had traveled back to her hometown to celebrate the Spring Festival with her parents, according to a Shenzhen Special Zone Daily report. Sun’s husband, also a medical worker in Shenzhen, had to work during the holiday.

Almost immediately after Sun arrived, Huang Tonghai, a surgeon from Shenzhen People’s Hospital, was at the scene. He conducted a surgery a day before and was on his way back to his hometown in Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province, to have a family reunion.

Huang Changhong, a nurse from Shenzhen Pingle Orthopedic Hospital, was sleeping on the train when she heard the announcement. She ran to the carriage where the old man was and joined the other three medical workers, including a medical worker from Huizhou, to help render CPR.

Following more than 30 minutes of chest compression, the train arrived at Heyuan Station where first-aid workers were already waiting at the platform.

With the emergency equipment brought by the first-aid workers, the rescue continued from another 10 minutes before the man’s vital signs were stable.

The man, 71, was later taken to a hospital in Heyuan for further treatment.

The man has a history of coronary heart disease, according to the Daily report.
