CQ Doctors' Foreign Aid Diaries|Huang Jingrui: He saves a dying baby and names her 'Mu Lan' | Updated: 2019-11-26 15:04

Huang Jingrui, a neurosurgeron of Chongqing Emergency Medical Hospital, still remembers the day that he completed the medical aid mission and leaved from PNG; local doctors saw them off at the airport.

On April 18th, 2017, Huang arrived at Port Moresby General Hospital with the 8th Chinese medical team, and stayed there for more than 400 days.

Port Moresby is located on the equator where owns hot climate and high epidemics. Also public security is poor, so that medical team has to take antiriot vans between the post and the hospital.

However, Huang and his teammates soon adapted such critical situations. Relying on their excellent abilities, Chinese medical team won the respect from local patients and doctors soon.

On May 11th, 2017, there was an emergency operation of craniocerebral trauma in the hospital. Dr.Apuahe, the only neurosurgeron in PNG, was the attending surgeon.

"They believed they could finish it independently, so we observed in the operation room rather than participated in," Huang said.

However, the uncontrollable massive haemorrhage happened during the operation, and the patient's blood pressure dropped severely. The patient was dying. This made Dr.Apuahe flustered, and he asked Huang for help immediately.

In order to save patient's life promptly, Huang joined the operation." Although we took it over in a halfway, relying on our profound working experience, we soon found the bleeding point and finished the operation," Huang said. As the first operation of Chinese medical team in PNG, it showed Chinese doctors' abilities, and promoted medical aid work to go well. Local doctors started to invite Huang to guide all Nneurosurgical surgeries since then.

On July 5th, 2017, Huang received an urgent call from neonates department: a two-week-old baby patient had a huge cyst in her brain, associated with cerebrospinal fluid leaking.

Huang was totally shocked by the time he saw the baby. The cyst was around 20*20 centimetre and ulcerated. To prevent cerebrospinal fluid continued leaking, local doctors wrapped the cyst with plastic film.
