Returning to ’90s, She Became Famous In Major Surgical Fields - Chapter 42
First aid on the train 6
Being able to answer the questions of a senior doctor was equal to getting guidance from a senior doctor, so Xie Wanying was very cautious and grateful of such an opportunity and said meticulously, “Precordial thump  is one of the effective measures of emergency cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The biggest difference between it and CPR is that it can stop ventricular tachycardia up to 40 percent more effectively if done properly and in a timely manner.”
The answer was beautiful, Director Wu nodded his head.
“You tell me again, what is the standard procedure of this operation?”
“The correct strike location is half an inch below the sternum, in the middle of the chest.
This place is the weakest support of the entire thoracic cage. When the blow is delivered, the rib cage will surely bend to a specific level and reach the heart, causing electrical cardiac activity and disrupting a possibly life-threatening rhythm.
The fist should be approximately 20 cm above the patient and focused to strike the inferior portion of the patient’s sternum with force.”
A single strike is insufficient, always be prepared for a second blow. Especially if defibrillation equipment is not available.”
Silence fell over the train carriage.
“Did she get it right?” Mother Lin’ s voice was hoarse and constrained, as if she was going to break down in tears. Her daughter was about to lose to Xie Wanying at this point.
“Yes.” Director Wu answered affirmatively.
Mother Lin, who was already unsteady, was going to fall over upon hearing what Director Wu said.
The crowd around Lin mother-daughter pair looked at them with frowning eyes. It was clear who was a genuine medical student and who was a scumbag.
“Who would dare to seek medical attention in such a family?”
“Didn’t you say it? She’s a dentist.”
“A dentist is also a doctor, but she doesn’t seem to know anything. I would not visit her to examine my teeth.”
As accusing words followed one after another, Mother Lin’s face became paler. She must determine the origin of this little girl named Xie. She stared fiercely and asked, “Which medical school student are you ? My daughter is a student of the Capital Medical University!”
‘What does this woman mean?’
Sun Rongfang was really angry.
‘Is there a significant distinction between medical schools? Do they not all teach medicine? Shouldn’t doctors and medical students be focused on saving lives?’
“My daughter studies medicine at Guoxie University.” Sun Rongfang replied directly on behalf of her daughter.
Director Wu and Lin mother – daughter pair were shocked.
Sun Rongfang was puzzled by the looks on the faces of the three people in front of her.
Her mother was not a doctor, so she didn’t know. Even if she knew, she might still be modest because her mother was like that. Thus, Xie Wanying spoke to her mother, “Nothing, all medical schools teach people to save lives.”#pleasereadthistranslationatfanstranslation.com
Sun Rongfang was relieved to hear that her daughter was thinking the same thing as she was.
Director Wu admired the conversation between the mother and daughter, which was radically different from that of the Lin family’s mother and daughter, and said, “The students of the Guoxie University are really the most remarkable, modest and good at learning. In the future, if you graduate, you can come to work in our hospital anytime you want.”
The fact was that Guoxie University graduates were always sought after .
Sun Rongfang was ecstatic to hear this, as she believed that her daughter’s job after graduation still can not be secured without having to beg her cousin. She introduced her daughter to Director Wu as best as she could, “Director, my daughter belongs to the 8th- year class grade of the National Association.”
“Eighth-year class!” Mother Lin screamed.
This time it was her turn to have her hair stand on end.
Oh god! This woman’s daughter was actually a student of Guoxie University’s 8 year class program. Lin mother-daughter pair’s heart trembled. Medical students and their parents were the most interested in hearing about medical news. Everyone knew that Xie Wanying was going to study medicine in the most influential medical school.
1. Precordial thump – the procedure has a very low success rate, but may be used in those with witnessed, monitored onset of one of the “shockable” cardiac rhythms if a defibrillator is not immediately available.↵
2. CPR – using chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth breathing resuscitation.↵
3. Ventricular tachycardia (V-tach or VT) – is a fast heart rate arising from the lower chambers of the heart.↵
