New lease of life to a stabbing victim

A 38-years man presented with an un-recordable blood pressure and feeble pulse, secondary to massive bleeding after having been stabbed in his abdomen. With his rapidly deteriorating condition, the team, led by Dr. Ravinder Singh Malhotra, Chief Laparoscopic and General Surgeon, wasted no time in appropriately resuscitating the patient and taking him up for a life-saving surgery to control the bleeding. Having dealt with this, it was noticed that there were multiple injuries of liver, stomach, and diaphragm, requiring a definitive procedure involving difficult liver surgery. The patient lost almost 5 liters of blood and received around 12 units before and during the initial surgery. Once stable, in about 48 hours, he was taken up for a very intricate but definitive surgery involving removal of part of patient’s liver. The patient recovered well and was discharged on 8th postoperative day. Dr Ravinder Singh Malhotra informed that saving the life of this patient was possible only due to a well-coordinated teamwork of 20 doctors from various departments including Emergency Physicians, Critical Care and Anaesthetic team. He appreciated the efforts of Dr Anupal Singh Kahlon, (Intensivist) and Dr Rajinder Kaur (Chief Anaesthesiologist). Dr HP Singh, Medical Director, stated that Fortis Escorts Hospital Amritsar is known for treating patients with serious and complicated illness and saving precious lives due to a team of experts in all specialities. Mr Dinesh Vashist, Facility Director, congratulated the team of Doctors doing great, cutting edge work.
