This week on Medical Emergency, A young man is viciously assaulted for doing a good deed and a 35-year-old man has been rushed to hospital after he suffered a series of heart attacks while water skiing. Meanwhile, there’s only one way to find out if this five-year-old is telling fibs – and the truth will come as a big surprise.
At The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, a 24-year-old man has been transferred from another hospital after being injured in an unprovoked assault while escorting a young woman to a taxi rank.
After such a severe beating, he may have sustained injuries to his neck and brain.
In The Alfred’s Heart Centre, 35-year-old heart attack patient Timothy is having emergency angioplasty to unblock his arteries. Twice today his heart stopped beating altogether and he’s been clinically dead. Timothy’s heart had to be shocked 13 times to keep it going.
Now his cardiologist has to quickly clear out the blockages before Timothy has another heart attack.
In the back of an ambulance, 25-year-old Almina is close to giving birth. Almina is feeling the urge to push, which means she’s in the last stage of labour -and her baby is ready to be born.
At the Hawkesbury Hospital in Sydney’s North West, a 5-year-old boy has come in after claiming he swallowed a large metal ball. This is not the first time Mitch has swallowed a metal object.
