Nigerian doctor uses bathroom slippers to save accident victim’s life (Photos)

A Nigerian doctor, Chibuike Joseph Chukwudum has given hints on how he used a bathroom slippers to save the life of an accident victim.

Chibuike who had to improvise due to non-availiability of the materials at the hospital where he works narrated in details all he had to do to save the victim’s life.

The unavailability of the needed materials many believe is a pointer to the decayed level of our health sector.

The Federal Government has been blamed for this even as Nigeria’s number one citizen, President Muhammadu Buhari continues to patronize foreign medical hospitals because of the inefficient ones we have in the country.

Read Chibuike’s full post below:

Just In Case You Find Yourself In A Jungle.

Emergency medicine is as exciting as it is unforgiving. People who excell in it are those who can think fast on their feet, and those who are daring. This is so as every minute counts, and the slightest delay could spell doom for the patient.

More often than not, especially in a third world country like Nigeria, the need arises for an emergency physician to reach into the deepest recesses of his brain and pull out an improvisation– a hack, to save a patient whose life is hanging by a thread.

For people working in standard hospital settings– where emergency tools are just a tray or trolley away– there may not be much need to familiarize oneself with the different hacks in emergency medicine. However, for the NYSC medical officer who may find himself in a rural setting, far removed from civilization, being familiar with these hacks is very important for two reasons:

– when in a charted territory, using a hack one is already familiar with saves both oneself’s time, and most importantly the patient’s time.

– it has a way of sparking one’s own genius to come up with a denovo improvisation when in an uncharted territory.

This is why I always share my own hacks, as I believe that it may someday be of help to someone who may find himself in a situation similar to the ones I often find myself in. As a matter of fact, I’ve had several colleagues call to tell me that they were in the doldrums one time or the other, and had to employ one of the several improvisations I write about, and it worked.

📝 BLUNT CHEST TRAUMA and C-SPINE INJURY, following RTA [Road Traffic Accident]

I was already on my way to work when they informed me that men of the Nigerian Road Safety Commission had just brought two accident victims to our hospital. So, I quickened my steps, knowing full well that a minute could make a world of difference.

I have a knack for smelling danger. So, immediately I entered into the mini theater, where they were being attended to, I was alarmed as I noticed that one of them was practically choking– he was struggling to breathe and was not doing a good job about it.

My argus eye caught two things in an instant: he was coughing up blood, and the left side of his chest looked bigger than the right, and wasn’t moving with each intake of breath as it should. Given the hemoptysis [coughing up blood], that could only mean that he’d taken some pretty bad hit to the chest, contused [bruised] the lung, and air was leaking freely into the pleural space, suffocating him. The fact that he sounded confused, even with no evidence of head injury, only told me how serious it must have been, as confusion in this setting is an indication of cerbral hypoxia–that the brain isn’t getting enough oxygen.

I gloved up, and just like I had expected, he’d fractured multiple ribs, and there was widespread crepitus over the left side of chest, showing that there was an air leak. The trachea and the heart were pushed to one side; and air wasn’t entering into his left lung at all, making the oxygen saturation to be as low as 60%. Tension pneumothorax!

Also, the cervical spine was a tad unstable, and if not attended to urgently, he could become paralysed in all for limbs. What more, the motor control of the diaphragm could also be knocked off, leading to paralysis of that muscles, and inability to breathe “at all at all,” and of course death.

Bottom line? He needed two things urgently:

1. Stabilization of the cervical spine [neck bone].

2. Relieving the pneumothorax.

To be able to do number 1, above, I’d need a cervic collar. And for number 2, I’d need a wide bore needle, and then a chest tube thereafter.

However, none of these were handy, nor could they be gotten within a 100km radius.

📝 CERVICAL COLLAR HACK

Back in school, they had hammered the differemt ways of improvising a cervical collar into our heads, considering how important the cervical spine is to survival. However, I’ve never had cause to use any of them.

One of the hacks involves using a bathroom slipper, I remembered. So, looking around, I saw one lying carelessly. I reached for it, removed the straps, and then created a hole at the heel end, to mirror the one at the toe end. Next, I wrapped the slipper around his neck– with soft pads underneath as a cushion; and held it in place with a tourniquet passed through the holes at both ends.

And there it was: a cervical collar!

I thanked my trauma teachers silently under my breath.

📝 NEEDLE THORACOSTOMY HACK

When someone has a tension pneumothorax, the pressure building up in his chest needs to be relieved fast, so he can breathe fine, else he could die within minutes.

Usually, tension pneumothorax is relieved by emergency needle thoracostomy, which is practically inserting a special, wide bore needle into the person’s chest so that the air trapped there in, under high pressure, can escape. Visualize this as puncturing and deflating a football, or a tyre.

After this– relieving of the tension pneumothorax by emergency needle thoracostomy– depending on the cause, a chest tube should be passed to continue the drainage of the excessive air accumulating in the chest, else it could build up again, leading to another tension pneumothorax.

In the index case, none of the above was available– not a standard needle for thoracostomy, nor a chest tube.

What I did was to relieve the tension pneumothorax with the regular needle that comes with syringes. Once I stuck it into his chest, you could hear jets of air escaping under high pressure. Within seconds to minutes, he began to breathe easy, and his oxygen saturation appreciated exponentially. That was the easy part.

The difficult part was how to pass a chest tube to prevent an inevitable reaccumulation of excessive air, and a recurrence of tension pneumothorax. Like I mentioned earlier, there was no chest tube available. However, a senior colleague had taught me how to improvise one by fenestrating an NG tube, or a urethral catheter, and inserting either of them into the chest. Unfortunately, none of these were available too. And moving the patient– without knowing the full extent of his cervical injury, and not having a ready means of transportation that could carry him in one piece, without unnecessary bending of the spine– was not an option, as it could have him paralysed in all four limbs, or worse still– dead from paralysis of the diaphragm.

While I was still thinking of what to do, he started deteriorating again: apparently enough air had accumulated in his chest again to impair breathing, leading to hypoxemia, and malfunctioning of the brain from lack of oxygen.

Then a bright idea popped into my head. I got a wide bore cannula, and stuck it into his chest, so air could be leaving through it. Then I connected one end of a drip-giving set to the cannula, and the other end of it to a urine bag. It was an airtight arrangement.

Almost immediately, you could see mist forming along the length of the tubbing of the drip-giving set, showing that humidified air was making its way through it. After few minutes, the hitherto collapsed urine bag started inflating, showing that air was collecting there.

The challenge was how to ensure unidirectional flow of air, since there was no underwater seal to create a a valve mechanism. Without a system of valve, air could potentially flow backwards into the chest, especially when the pressure in the bag becomes higer than that in the chest.

I did two things to prevent this from happening:

1. Knowing full well that expired air is denser than atmospheric air, I made sure that the urine bag is placed at a level below the chest.

2. Most importantly, I made sure that air didn’t accumulate in the bag under pressure. Once a sizeable volume of air accumulates there, we would occlude the drip-giving set with it its regulator, maintaining an air-tight system upstream. Then we would open the valve at the tail end of the urine bag, to allow the accumulated air to escape, without the risk of having atmospheric air rushing into the chest.

We carried on like this until he was fit enough, and the family was buoyant enough, to take him to a proper Hospital. 24 hours it took. And guess what. Within that period of time, there was no single incident of deterioration from hypoxemia. He was lucid all through, and breathing relatively fine.

😀

Now you have a new air-bending skill to add to the ones you already know.

I am CJ, the last air bender!

😜

📝 PS:

Needless to say, this should only be tried when there’s no chest tube available; no NG tube, or urethral catheter, to improvise with; no nearby Hospital to refer the patient to [or moving the patient has its own risk]; and the BENEFITS CLEARLY OUTWEIGHS THE RISKS!

📝 NB:

Patient waa fully conscious when the pictures were taken. The purpose was explained to him, and he gave his consent.

Government of China Scholarships for African Students in China, 2018

Man wrongly imprisoned for 27 years seeks ₦20 billion compensation

A 56-year-old man, Clinton Kanu, has said he will demand a N20bn compensation for spending 27 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit.

Kanu, who was sentenced to death in 1992 for murder, was freed by the Supreme Court on April 5, 2019.

The Okigwe, Imo State-born consultant criminologist explained that though he made efforts to absolve himself from a gang-up that led to his incarceration, nobody was ready to listen to him until he was jailed.

While in prison, Kanu lost his mother; coupled with the fact that he was not married, he said he fought loneliness.

Kanu, who recounted the incident that led to his travail, said, “About 27 years ago, some people were accused of stealing a generator and fluorescent tubes; they were my in-laws.

“After a court decided the case, we suddenly heard that somebody was killed in the compound where my sister married. I was arrested because those behind my ordeal thought I was trying to resolve a land dispute in favour of one person.

“I was taken to the Okigwe Police Station and later transferred to Owerri, where I was charged to court in April 1992. I was detained in the Owerri prison. I was at the tribunal for seven years because those behind my ordeal included armed robbery to the case. They believed I was a strong man and wanted to tie me down.

“They brought false witnesses to testify against me at the tribunal. I was later taken to a regular court where I was condemned to death. From Owerri, I was transferred to the Port Harcourt prison. At the Port Harcourt prison, I waited for many years for the hangman’s noose.

“I went to the Appeal Court to appeal the case, but my lawyer messed it up. Then I decided to proceed to the Supreme Court, where after 27 years in prison, I was vindicated. I was detained for nothing for 27 years; I was discharged and acquitted on April 5, 2019.”

Speaking to our correspondent on Saturday, Kanu argued that he would demand N20bn compensation from the Federal Government and his state (Imo State) for the damage done to his business.

He also stated that he developed ill health due to the prison’s dirty environment, adding that with the help of his lawyer, he hoped to be well compensated.

“It seems as if everything collapsed on my head; I don’t know where to start from. My head is jam-packed with thoughts and I need to ask God to direct me. I really need help.

“I am considering asking for compensation from the Federal Government and my state. I want this legal parochialism and injustice to stop.

“When you talk about the damage done to my business and to my health, due to the prison’s dirty environment, and a lot of other things that have gone wrong, if I put my losses in billions, I don’t think it is out of place.

“The money is just to make me solve my problems and get back to normal life. I will ask for N20bn compensation,” Kanu said.

He thanked his church and some relatives who had been feeding and accommodating him since he left prison last Tuesday.

I’ll be your President, I’ll reclaim my mandate – Atiku tells supporters

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has rekindled hopes that he will reclaim his mandate at the tribunal.

The former Vice President said this in a statement to DAILY POST on Sunday signed by his Special Assistant on Youth and Support Groups Ambassador Aliyu Bin Abbas.

Atiku assured millions of his supportersin the last elections, that victory was sure.

He titled the statement, ‘A MESSAGE OF HOPE TO THE OVER 18 MILLION ATIKULATED FAMILY MEMBERS.’

“Like never before in the history of presidential election petition in Nigeria, the plethora, overwhelming, watertight and barefaced evidences at the disposal of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the PDP has put us on a track to glory,” he said.

He appreciated the efforts, doggedness and determination of his supporters to bring about a new Nigeria where businesses and investment will thrive, when Wazirin Adamawa reclaims his mandate at the tribunals.

He added, “It is just the believe and confidence you had that made many of you to travel far and wide, even twice for some, risking everything to cast your votes for his Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar/Peter Obi.

“Some of you may have never voted before, but because you believed in #TheAtikuPlan and you wanted a new Nigeria to be birth by Wazirin Adamawa and Peter Obi, you chose to endure all the stress, including those of collecting PVC and joining the queue to cast your vote under the scorching sun.

“It is a public knowledge that some of you had to even paid money to collect your PVCs in some places like Lagos among others, a very sad and embarrassing situation,” he said.

He told them not to despair, but remain resolute.

“Right now, our dream of a #BetterNigeria may seem to have been dashed by the cowardice behavior of the chairman of INEC, caving in to the desperation of the APC to cling to power at all costs.

“But I want to tell everyone of us that the good news is there’s light at the end of tunnel. The vision to Atikulate a new Nigeria is alive.

“Be optimistic as you have always been because the JOURNEY to reclaiming the stolen mandate to create #BetterJobs for the millions of unemployed youth of this country, provide #BetterLife and #GetNigeriaWorkingAgain WILL SURELY BE FRUITFUL because TRUTH is on our side.

“Whatever is the case, we insist and call on the judiciary, the last hope of the common man to remain resolute and dispense justice to the Nigerian people without fear or favor. Nigeria is bigger than anybody and will outlived all of us.

“Ladies and gentlemen of the Atikulated family, keep the faith.”

She told police she had thought it was cats, but that it had become louder.

She told El Universal:

“I asked a neighbour to look inside who said there was nothing there, but then I noticed some shoes, tools and water. I shouted at him to get out, but he did not do anything.”

The man, who had been stuck for 24 hours, refused to leave until he was forced by emergency services.

Wattbike International Doctoral Research Award at University of Waikato in New Zealand, 2018

Man wrongly imprisoned for 27 years seeks ₦20 billion compensation

A 56-year-old man, Clinton Kanu, has said he will demand a N20bn compensation for spending 27 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit.

Kanu, who was sentenced to death in 1992 for murder, was freed by the Supreme Court on April 5, 2019.

The Okigwe, Imo State-born consultant criminologist explained that though he made efforts to absolve himself from a gang-up that led to his incarceration, nobody was ready to listen to him until he was jailed.

While in prison, Kanu lost his mother; coupled with the fact that he was not married, he said he fought loneliness.

Kanu, who recounted the incident that led to his travail, said, “About 27 years ago, some people were accused of stealing a generator and fluorescent tubes; they were my in-laws.

“After a court decided the case, we suddenly heard that somebody was killed in the compound where my sister married. I was arrested because those behind my ordeal thought I was trying to resolve a land dispute in favour of one person.

“I was taken to the Okigwe Police Station and later transferred to Owerri, where I was charged to court in April 1992. I was detained in the Owerri prison. I was at the tribunal for seven years because those behind my ordeal included armed robbery to the case. They believed I was a strong man and wanted to tie me down.

“They brought false witnesses to testify against me at the tribunal. I was later taken to a regular court where I was condemned to death. From Owerri, I was transferred to the Port Harcourt prison. At the Port Harcourt prison, I waited for many years for the hangman’s noose.

“I went to the Appeal Court to appeal the case, but my lawyer messed it up. Then I decided to proceed to the Supreme Court, where after 27 years in prison, I was vindicated. I was detained for nothing for 27 years; I was discharged and acquitted on April 5, 2019.”

Speaking to our correspondent on Saturday, Kanu argued that he would demand N20bn compensation from the Federal Government and his state (Imo State) for the damage done to his business.

He also stated that he developed ill health due to the prison’s dirty environment, adding that with the help of his lawyer, he hoped to be well compensated.

“It seems as if everything collapsed on my head; I don’t know where to start from. My head is jam-packed with thoughts and I need to ask God to direct me. I really need help.

“I am considering asking for compensation from the Federal Government and my state. I want this legal parochialism and injustice to stop.

“When you talk about the damage done to my business and to my health, due to the prison’s dirty environment, and a lot of other things that have gone wrong, if I put my losses in billions, I don’t think it is out of place.

“The money is just to make me solve my problems and get back to normal life. I will ask for N20bn compensation,” Kanu said.

He thanked his church and some relatives who had been feeding and accommodating him since he left prison last Tuesday.
