At nine o’clock in the evening, the obstetrics department opened the phone and said: There was a failed natural delivery and an emergency cesarean section was requested.
As soon as he heard this, Dr. Zhang, who was on duty in the anesthesiology department, immediately rushed to the operating room. Obstetric anesthesia, do not dare to delay for a minute, otherwise there will be a major incident.
As soon as anesthesia puncture kits and medicines were prepared, the nurses rushed in with the maternity, obstetrics, and pediatricians.
To complete the signature and tripartite verification as quickly as possible, Dr. Zhang asked the nurse to put the mother in the lateral position for puncture.
However, whether it was pain or fear, this woman’s position was always non-standard.
Seeing that the patient’s waist is almost the same, Dr. Zhang shook his head and said, “Let’s do it first.”
However, it was this accommodation that caused Dr. Zhang to regret.
The body position was not in place, and the puncture process really encountered a problem: several times of puncture, it could not penetrate into the spinal canal.
What made Dr. Zhang’s headache even more was that the woman who was parturient kept shouting from time to time, and her body also evaded.
At that time, Dr. Zhang thought: If this is not anesthesia for childbirth, then we should give up puncture and change to general anesthesia. However, no matter how good general anesthesia control is, it may also affect children. Therefore, I can only persuade and try to puncture.
the mother still makes sounds from time to time.
What worries Dr. Zhang even more is that, after an attempt to deviate slightly from the midline, the parturient shouted that the leg seemed to be overcharged.
Although it was just a word from the mother, the sweat on Dr. Zhang’s back suddenly came down.
At that time, he was afraid of hurting the nerves of the mother.
Finally, after a lot of hard work, the puncture was finally successful. The moment he saw the cerebrospinal fluid, a stone in Dr. Zhang’s heart finally fell to the ground. This cesarean section can finally be guaranteed by satisfactory anesthesia!
As for the “discharge”, Dr. Zhang has been watching carefully during the operation.
What made Dr. Zhang feel the pressure was that the anesthesia in the leg that had the discharge during the operation was surprisingly good.
It’s so good, how can he not worry? To put it bluntly, once the nerve is damaged, the effect may be better.
The one-hour cesarean delivery was over in no time.
However, in theory, the anaesthetic hasn’t worked. Therefore, until everyone sends the mother back, there is no way to observe whether there is any problem with that leg.
Someone said, check back in a few hours.
Easier said than done:
First, the current medical environment is unique. If you go to check the situation in the middle of the night, it may cause unnecessary suspicion of family members.
Secondly, the lights in the ward go out after ten o’clock. At this time to see the patient, the ward doctor or nurse will think there is something wrong.
Again, Dr. Zhang reassured himself: nothing happened. When puncturing, there is a feeling of discharge when the fine needle is inserted. Even if there is damage, it will heal quickly.
Dr. Zhang was still thinking about it until twelve o’clock.
I couldn’t sleep, so I just got up and read a book for a while.
Slightly sleepy lying in bed, but tossing and turning and unable to fall asleep.
The next morning, as soon as Yumabai came out, he went to the ward to see the legs of the mother.
He was relieved to see that the mother’s legs moved freely and nothing unusual. A sense of drowsiness struck, and he fell asleep with his head covered.
An anesthesia, a worry, this is the daily life of an anesthesiologist.
