China News Service, Guangzhou, April 12th (Cai Minjie Bai Tian) In April, Linzhi was full of peach blossoms. In the most beautiful season of Linzhi, a love for help from Guangdong and Tibet spanning thousands of miles is being written. From April 9th to 11th, medical staff from the Guangzhou Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Third Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, went to Linzhi, Tibet to carry out medical assistance work, from giving them fish to “giving them to fish”, training people Up is the key.
“This is a 49-year-old Tibetan woman. She had irregular bleeding after half a year of menopause. After going to the hospital, she found a huge fibroids in the uterus. She happened to meet us for help, so she started This operation was performed.” On April 9, a highly difficult “laparoscopic total hysterectomy” operation was carried out in Linzhi City People’s Hospital.

Laparoscopic total hysterectomy may be a “routine” operation for the top three hospitals in Guangzhou, but in Linzhi, the local doctors Cannot be done independently. “Patients hope to be able to do minimally invasive surgery, the local also wanted us to demonstrate this operation, so we will be on stage as soon as we come.” Sheng Xiujie said. However, the difficulty of the operation was a bit beyond expectations.
“The patient’s uterus is full of fibroids, the largest being ten centimeters, about the size of a small watermelon; and it has serious adhesion to the surrounding bladder and intestine, which adds a lot to the laparoscopic resection of the uterus. Difficulty; a little carelessness during the operation may cause intestinal injury, ureteral injury, and more bleeding.” Sheng Xiujie said.
It is the first time for the two surgical experts to enter Tibet. Before the operation, they experienced various degrees of altitude sickness such as dizziness and headache. However, the unfamiliar operation environment and personnel cooperation undoubtedly increased the number of surgeons. The difficulty of performing the operation, due to the high intensity of the operation, Professor Liu Ping even had to inhale oxygen during the operation. However, the two experts overcame difficulties and underwent a laparoscopic cut of a uterus with a diameter of 15 or 6 centimeters.
At the end of the operation, it was already 21 o’clock. “Professor, thanks to you for coming, otherwise we won’t be able to complete this operation.” said Yao Donghua, director of the obstetrics and gynecology department of Linzhi People’s Hospital.
In December last year, Wan Jing, a young nurse from the Third Hospital of Guangzhou Medical College, came to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Linzhi People’s Hospital as a member of the fifth batch of Guangdong’s flexible Tibet medical team and served as the head nurse.
The nursing experience in the high-risk obstetrics department of the Third Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University made Wan Jing very familiar with the nursing of critically ill pregnant women. After learning that Linzhi was planning to build a maternal treatment center, Wan Jing made a decision for herself A goal of assistance-spare no effort to keep the nursing technology and standardized operation of critically ill pregnant and lying-in women.
For this reason, on the one hand, Wan Jing gave lectures in the department to explain the professional nursing knowledge of postpartum hemorrhage, pregnancy-induced hypertension, lower extremity venous thrombosis and other diseases to local nursing colleagues; on the other hand, he actively promoted new nursing technology, The introduction and development of new projects, such as the “bladder pressure measurement” technology, the use of the turntable for rapid estimation of postpartum hemorrhage, and the “breastfeeding” ward education and guidance have all achieved good results.
“The time for flexible assistance to Tibet is very short, and there are still many things they want to do, but I hope that through these few months of hard work, they can form an awareness and concept of actively improving and enhancing nursing services. Even if my help ends, the improvement of local nursing standards will not stop.” Wan Jing said.
“In fact, the most lacking thing here is people.” In 2016, He Fang, deputy chief physician of the obstetrics department of the Third Hospital of Guangzhou Medical College, who had been stationed at the Bomi County People’s Hospital in Linzhi Prefecture, said in 2016. Five years later, after entering Tibet again, He Fang felt the improvement of local hardware conditions, but at the same time, the lack of “software” was still obvious.
“I came to Tibet for the first time more than ten years ago. In these years, the medical conditions in Tibet are not what they used to be. Especially the improvement of hardware has made considerable achievements, but There is still a lot of room for improvement in talent introduction and basic research,” said Professor Chen Dunjin, director of the Guangzhou Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Medical counterpart assistance is the main purpose of improving the local medical technology and service capabilities. Among them, the most critical and important is “people”, especially to cultivate local people who cannot be taken away. Medical team, this is also one of the goals of “passing, helping, and leading” the Guangdong-aided Tibet medical teams.
“Nyingchi is located on a plateau. Hypertension during pregnancy, premature abruption of placenta, postpartum hemorrhage, anemia and other diseases are more common in pregnant women.” said Yao Donghua, director of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Linzhi People’s Hospital. People of Linzhi City At present, more than 80% of the patients in the hospital’s obstetrics and gynecology department come from the obstetrics department. There is an urgent need to improve the treatment capabilities of pregnant women, especially those in critically ill women.
From April 10th to 11th, the “2021 Obstetrics and Gynecology Diagnosis and Treatment Practical Technology Study Class” co-sponsored by the Guangzhou Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Third Hospital of Guangzhou Medical College and Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University was held in Linzhi This class is a “tailor-made” class for grassroots medical staff in Linzhi area after the two hospitals have investigated local needs. The medical experts of the two hospitals exchanged and lectured on a number of common clinical and practical issues such as “Identification and Transfer of Obstetric Critical Illness”, “Postpartum Hemorrhage Diagnosis and Treatment Ideas and Common Problems”, and promoted the training of local primary care.
“This is the fifth time I have come to Tibet to teach and help. I understand that Linzhi is preparing to build a maternal treatment center. I hope to use this training class to exchange experience with colleagues in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Linzhi , To do something to improve Linzhi’s ability to treat pregnant women.” Chen Dunjin said.
“In the future, the Third Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University also hopes to give full play to the advantages of multiple disciplines and play more roles in improving the level of local medical technology.” Chen Dunjin introduced. (End)
