A Chinese surgeon has been hailed as a hero after working for about 20 hours non-stop to save urgent patients.
A poignant image shows that the orthopedic surgeon Luo Shanpeng falls asleep through the operating table after he has reasserted the severed arm for a migrant worker.
He was asleep while he sat down at the table, still with the arm he had just attached to the patient.
He had performed five operations and his sixth operation lasted eight hours.
The Chinese surgeon Luo Shanpeng sleeps through the operating table after he has rescued six patients. He has reattached the arm for a migrant worker and holds him, so that the blood continues to flow
"This sight makes my heart ache", said the nurse who took the photo of her colleague out of respect. The photo has become viral after appearing on WeChat, a Chinese messaging platform.
Luo works for the No. 6 People & # 39; s Hospital of Guiyang in Guizhou Province in the south-east of China.
He told Guiyang Evening News that he had already performed five operations when a patient was admitted to the hospital around 3 pm on 3 January.
The patient's right arm was mutilated in a meat grinder and almost torn off his body.
Luo decided to perform an emergency operation for the patient, despite the fact that he had already worked in the course of time.
& Otherwise, the patient would lose his arm. & # 39;
Luo said in a reply to the photo: I wanted to close and rest my eyes. I did not expect to fall asleep. & # 39;
The photo was made the next day around 4 o'clock.
Luo (photo) said it was an honor to become a surgeon and patients are the most important
He told the local newspaper that by that time he had worked almost 20 hours without a break. He held the patient's arm because the patient was still undergoing general anesthesia and the arm could not touch anything until the cast dried.
That's why he kept the arm for the patient. This also kept the blood circulating in the arm for the patient.
When he said on the video platform Pear, Luo said he was tired at the time. He agreed to perform the operation because he thought he could still concentrate.
He said that as a surgeon, he was important to keep his body healthy and to keep his mind clear.
Luo added that it was an honor to become a surgeon and the happiest thing for him was to see his patients recover.
