Doctor Saves Man’s Life by Sucking Urine from His Bladder in Mid-flight Emergency

A doctor saved a man’s life by sucking urine from his bladder for 37 minutes during a mid-flight emergency.

Vascular surgeon Zhang Hong was travelling on a China Southern Airlines flight on Tuesday, when the emergency call for an on board doctor was initiated.

The South China Morning Post reported that an elderly man had about 1 litre of urine trapped in his bladder, but wasn’t able to urinate.

The alarm was raised, when there was still about six (6) hours before the flight lands.

As a result, a makeshift bed was imminent and he used materials that were available to him, including a portable oxygen mask, a syringe needle, straws from milk boxes and tape.

After piercing the patient’s bladder, the easing of pressure was not enough so he had to use the only pump he could rely on, and that’s his own lips. He sucked and spitted the urine into an empty wine bottle and a glass.

According to Dr Zhang, “If we had not dealt with the situation in time, the patient’s life would have been at risk. It was an emergency situation. I couldn’t figure out another way.”

“When I saw that the man could hardly bear the pain any more, my only thought was how to get the urine out of his bladder,” the publication also added.
