Modern Medicine at its best. the patient in the video was drinking a cup of coffee an hour after the surgery. All this innovative surgery and the nurse still had to crank the bed by hand.
Please just wake me when it’s over.
It took a couple of guys to hold me down (and three types of painkiller) when they tried to set a bone in my arm. I don’t know how many it would take to hold me down to cut open my heart.
I'm assuming this was intentional.
I'd hate to think it was something like, "I thought you put him under! No, I thought you put him under!"
Awesome.. India has amazing talent, all it needs are some decent politicians and rest will fall in place.
I wonder if the patient still gets Versed or some other short term amnesia drug. To undergo a procedure like that would weird me out to the max. “Sir, your heart’s just been stopped... excuse me while I tinker under the hood now....”
Yeah, cup of coffee. Decat? Nothing like full caffeine coffee right after heart surgery. :’)
