Man, 30, suffers & # 39; rectal burst & # 39; after his & # 39; perverted friends & # 39; have inserted and inflated the mouthpiece of an industrial air compressor in its anus
- The man's injury was reported by doctors in New Delhi and Rishikesh, India
- It belonged to a series of three case reports of men with the same injuries
- All three men had to remove all or part of their colon because of the damage
A man's colon erupted after his & # 39; perverse & # 39; friends put a compressed air pump in his anus and inflated it, revealed a bizarre medical report.
The 30-year-old was taken to the hospital after the horrific joke left him because he needed his entire gut because of a & # 39; rectal eruption & # 39 ;, an injury caused by air pressure rising so high in the rectum that he exploded .
And his case, though extraordinary, was not unique – doctors reported it in a journal article in addition to reports from two other men with similar injuries.
One had sprayed pressurized air on his back in an alleged accident, while another suffered the pain from robbers trying to stop him.
The experts warn that the air can be just as harmful as solid objects and industrial machines must be treated with caution due to the hazards.
Doctors warn people to be well informed about the dangers of using industrial machines such as air compressors, because they can produce 100 times higher pressure levels than what is safe for colonoscopy (image: the type of air compressor that caused the injuries and, on the left, a part of the person who injured the man whose & # 39; perverted friends & # 39; did it to him)
Doctors at the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Rishikesh have written the report.
They said the men suffered under high pressure, which were normally & # 39; limited to battlefields & # 39 ;.
Life-changing injuries sustained by the men came as a warning of the dangers of misuse of industrial machines.
The airflow produced by an air compressor, the authors of the report write, are at least 100 times higher than what would be safe for a colonoscopy.
The man whose friends submitted him had & # 39; multiple colon perforations & # 39; and doctors found feces between his other internal organs.
HOW CAN COMPRESSED AIR DAMAGE CAUSE INTERNAL ORGANS?
In a paper in the Journal of Medical Case Reports, doctors explained how air is pressured above a certain point & # 39; forms a column that works like a solid & # 39 ;.
A sudden flow of air in the body can lead to injuries called barotrauma.
Barotrauma, although rare, occurs when the pressure in a body tissue is higher than the area outside, causing it to burst.
Air pumped into the anus, for example, would go straight to the intestine and inflate the organ like a balloon until it could no longer withstand the pressure and rupture.
If air was pumped into the mouth in the same way, it could have the same effect on the stomach or lungs.
Researchers wrote in a paper in the Journal of Medical Case Reports: & # 39; The amount of injury can vary from mucosal ulceration to complete eruption, depending on air pressure, air flow rate, anal resting pressure and the distance between the source and the anus.
& # 39; Management varies from repair or resection with proximal enterostomy, because several other injuries can perforate later and have a delayed presentation. & # 39;
The report said the injury was & # 39; caused by his perverted friends who put the mouthpiece of a windpipe (tire air pump) in his anus and inflating it & # 39 ;.
In a separate case study, a 34-year-old man working on a gas pump was taken to the hospital with similar injuries after trying to stop a burglary.
He had some doctors a & # 39; rectal burst & # 39; and needed most of his colon removed and needed a colostomy bag.
The report said that he & # 39; had suffered an alleged insult of compressed air by robbers while thwarting the raid. The robbers had inserted the mouthpiece with compressed air into his anus.
And in the third report, a 24-year-old man went to an emergency department at the hospital with a & # 39; alleged history of accidental injury to the anus from a compressed air jet & # 39 ;.
The man said the air nozzle was about 25 cm (9.8 inches) from its back and stood up for just a second.
He had a swollen, painful torso and the inside of his stomach was covered with stools and blood, the doctors said.
Surgeons had to remove part of the intestine due to damage caused by the incident.
& # 39; Education regarding such machines and their safe use should be encouraged because most of these cases are accidental and are due to ignorance & # 39 ;, wrote the doctors led by Dr. Lovenish Bains.
Air, the experts said, can be just as harmful as a solid object.
Strong compressed air, she added, & # 39; forms a column that acts like a solid body, opening the anal sphincter.
The doctors said: & # 39; It only takes one or two (seconds) to release enough pressurized air to cause major damage. & # 39;
The research is published in the Journal of Medical Case Reports.
Employee is killed after colleague inserts a compressed air hose into his bottom like a joke and his inside explodes
A Japanese worker in a production company died after his joke coach blasted the wind from an air compressor on its bottom, it reported last year.
Akio Ishimaru, 46, complained that he felt unwell within minutes and was taken to the hospital where he succumbed to injury.
His 34-year-old colleague Yoshiyuki Yoshida was arrested and told the police that he & # 39; did not think he could possibly die & # 39; by such a fateful joke.
Asia Times reported that the incident took place in an industrial equipment factory in Ibaraki, Tsukuba City, where Ishimaru and Yoshida were working.
The pair & # 39; clownnered & # 39; when Yoshida took the pipe from an air compressor and Ishimaru poked the buttocks before injecting wind into his body.
A police spokesman said the air compressor was pressed against the anus, over clothing, not directly into the cavity.
