Great Doctor Ling Ran Chapter 400
401 Beep Beep Beep
After the wedding banquet, All the doctors returned to the hospital by bus or by car. Throughout their journey, many of the doctors were making successive phone calls to delegate tasks to members of their department or explain certain situations to certain people.
Tian Qi looked around and could not help but say, "Life as a doctor is really hard."
Ling Ran looked around too and asked in a puzzled tone, "Why?"
"Huh? Don't you find it hard?" Tian Qi was surprised.
Ling Ran thought about it and said, "Resident doctors who are not qualified to carry out surgeries yet probably have a hard time."
Resident doctors had to write medical records and manage patients. In addition, they were always ordered around by nurses, patients, and their family members, and chief physicians and associate professors. The worst part was that the department directors would not pay any attention to them at all. They had an extremely high workload.
Tian Qi was a little shocked. "I thought that operating on patients is very hard. Doesn't the responsibility involved bring about a huge psychological burden?"
Tian Qi, who was still a student but owned the majority of the shares of a pharmaceutical sales company already had a certain understanding when it came to the field of medicine.
However, Ling Ran smiled without thinking much. "Carrying out surgery is the most relaxing part."
Tian Qi was suddenly at a loss for words.
She had seen a lot of workaholics. To be honest, there were plenty of workaholics, yes-mans, and leeches in the Tian family. Among the Tian family's subordinates and members of the various companies they owned, there were also many young workaholics, middle-aged workaholics, and workaholics who did not mind working themselves to death. But this was the first time Tian Qi had seen such a handsome workaholic like Ling Ran. Tian Qi could not really fathom this.
"You stay in the hospital for such long hours every day. How do you even maintain the quality of the skin on your face?" Tian Qi could not hold herself back anymore and finally uttered this question.
Ling Ran had been asked the same thing multiple times. He flashed a smile which seemed to have come out from a mold before answering according to the mold he had set for himself when it came to this sort of question. "I wash my face and dry it every day, and I refrain from coming into contact with water that is over one hundred and ninety-four degrees Fahrenheit or its steam."
Tian Qi froze for a moment before laughing out loud. "Doctor Ling, you're pretty cool when you crack a joke every now and then."
Ling Ran whipped out his car key with a smile on his face. They had already arrived in the parking lot.
A few men who arrived at the parking lot at almost the same time had been throwing secret glances at Ling Ran and Tian Qi. It caused them extreme agony, but when they reached the parking lot, they were suddenly in high spirits.
A man in a tight-fitting suit immediately pressed the key to his Mercedes-Benz.
A sturdy, luxurious, and brand-new Mercedes-Benz C200 let out earth-shattering beeps that echoed throughout the tiny parking lot of the hotel.
The man in the tight-fitting suit had a smile on his face, and his heart was filled with pride. for visiting.
It was a little tough on his wallet to buy a Mercedes-Benz that cost more than 300,000 RMB because he was just promoted to an attending physician not long ago. When he decided to get a loan to buy the car, he had a lot of doubts.
However, at this moment, he was exhilarated!
As the man in the tight-fitting suit looked at Ling Ran's tiny Volkswagen Jetta, he rested his hand on top of his Mercedes-Benz and pressed his car key again.
'Huh, why did I hear the alarm ring twice?'
With this thought in mind, the man in the tight-fitting suit could not help but look toward the direction of the sound.
There was a black Mercedes-Benz E200L, and the owner just opened the car door. The car was sturdy, luxurious, grandiose, and even more expensive than his!
The man in the tight-fitting suit looked at the owner of the car. He was also a young man and was wearing a large white coat. The skin on his face seemed even smoother than that of the man in the tight-fitting suit. He might even be under thirty years old!
The man in the tight-fitting suit could not help but chuckle. 'What's the point in buying a Mercedes-Benz E-Class using money that is not your own? And you even got the cheapest E200. You probably bought it just to show off.'
The cars in the parking lot kept ringing, one louder than the other. It was as if all of them were fueled by fire today.
The man in the tight-fitting suit and the young man in a large white coat looked to their side in unison.
There was a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, with its owner who looked almost fifty years old standing beside it. The lights of the car and the eyes of the car owner sparkled.
The man in the tight-fitting suit and the young man in a large white coat sighed in astonishment at the same time. They then turned and looked at Tian Qi.
Tian Qi happily entered the Volkswagen Jetta and was talking to Ling Ran with a vibrant smile on her face.
Ling Ran turned the ignition, but he was not in a rush to start driving. He let his car warm up a little before he slowly drove the car out of the parking lot.
In the parking lot, another car let out a ring, but people no longer cared about it.
"Where should I send you to?" Ling Ran asked Tian Qi.
"I'll just go to Yun Hua Hospital," Tian Qi answered.
Even though Ling Ran did not understand why Tian Qi wanted to head to Yun Hua Hospital, his personality dictated that he did not ask such questions.
Tian Qi did not say much either. She watched Ling Ran as he drove with a smile. She did not care about where she was headed.
The Volkswagen Jetta made it to the underground parking lot of Yun Hua Emergency Medical Center smoothly. Tian Qi followed Ling Ran obediently as he took the elevator upstairs. The place was extremely quiet at this time, and this was exactly what Tian Qi hoped for.
The elevator doors slid open.
All kinds of sounds, layer upon layer, loud and soft, immediately rang out.
"Can you please take a look."
The treatment room and resuscitation room were filled with people in distress.
Ling Ran calmly walked through the atrium. This was a common scene in the Emergency Medical Center. The louder a patient's screams were, the milder their symptoms usually were. Patients who were truly critically ill would not have so much strength to yell out loud. Most of the time, they would experience shortness of breath and tightness in the chest, causing their bodies to go limp, just like that old woman in the corner.
Ling Ran could not help but stop in his tracks.
"What's wrong with this patient?" Ling Ran walked towards the corner. The Emergency Medical Center's treatment room was extremely huge, and patients were only separated by curtains. The hospital beds were placed quite far apart, and some of them were equipped with life-saving instruments. Most were not equipped with those instruments, as patients who truly needed life support would be sent to the resuscitation room or the ICU.
At this moment, a houseman stood in the corner beside the old woman. The houseman was a little taken aback by Ling Ran's sudden question. He picked up the old woman's medical record in a flurry of motion and flipped through it. "The main complaint is gastrointestinal pain, and she has been experiencing continuous cramps and dull pain since she had her lunch. She vomited once, and the vomit mainly consists of gastric content. She has a history of chronic gastroenteritis"
"When was the last time you experienced stomach discomfort?" Ling Ran cut the houseman off and took out a stethoscope from the emergency medicine cabinet beside him. He took a few moments to warm the diaphragm with his palm before placing it on the patient's chest.
"I've not taken any omeprazole for quite a few years. I feel like my illness has returned."
"Hmm... let me check." As Ling Ran spoke, he pulled the houseman aside and said in a hushed tone, "This patient is in urgent need of electrocardiography. Call people from the Cardiology Department over for a consultation."
The houseman hesitated for a few seconds. He wanted to ask Ling Ran something, but Ling Ran had already turned and left.
To be honest, the houseman did not have much faith in Ling Ran when it came to an emergency diagnosis. Even though Ling Ran was a renowned figure in Yun Hua City, he had only performed normal diagnoses, and all his work were related to the field of orthopedics. He really did not spend much more time in the treatment room and resuscitation room of the Emergency Medical Center compared to most housemen.
If emergency medical specialists wanted to look down on anyone in the chain of contempt in a hospital, all they could do was to regard orthopedists in disdain. Of course, this was only in the context of the nobility of the work they do instead of the pay they receive.
But all housemen knew very well what it meant when a patient needed electrocardiography and had to be consulted by cardiologists.
He turned to look at the old woman whose forehead was drenched in cold sweat and remembered some of the things he studied before such as sudden cardiac death. He suddenly realized the gravity of the situation and started running out of the treatment room with his head lowered.
In a flash, three nurses rushed over with an ECG monitor. One of the nurses closed the curtain, enclosing both Ling Ran and Tian Qi within the space. The two other nurses hastily placed electrode sheets on the old woman's body while placing a blood pressure cuff around her arm...
The old woman finally realized what was happening. "I Am I"
As she spoke, the ECG monitor that had just been set up started beeping.
"Ventricular fibrillation!" The nurse who set up the ECG monitor was experienced, and she immediately yelled out loud as it only took one look for her to know that it was not a false alarm.
