Chapter 2: Operating Room

"Come on! Please pick up!" a young woman said into her phone, tears in her eyes, barely able to hold on. This young man just saved her from dying, and now he's dying! "Hello this is 911, what's your emergency?" finally responded a man from her phone. "Hello yes, you need to send help right away. Someone-Someone's been run over!" she said, already crying and sobbing. "Okay miss, please calm down. We'll be sending an ambulance right over. Where are you?" "I-I'm at Marshall Avenue. Please hurry!" "Alright, we'll send an ambulance your way. Just sit tight, and make sure they're still breathing."

The girl put her ear to his chest. His heart was still beating, somehow. Surprising, considering how he looked. Blood pooled out from under him, tread marks through his chest and waist. A bone was even sticking out of his thigh. Multiple deep cuts are around his body. His bag, and its contents, have been ruined. Slowly and carefully, she took one ear next to his mouth. Breathing. Relieved, the girl stood up to notice the crowd that seemed to have surrounded her. How odd for people to look at someone suffering and not do anything about it.

After long enough, an ambulance arrived. Quickly, the helpers put him onto a stretcher, and put him in the ambulance. It quickly drove off, seeing the situation he was in. All the girl could do was hope that he would be fine. Deep in her heart though, she felt it wouldn't. She felt it would take a miracle to survive something that brutal, and he was only barely staying alive.

On the ambulance, the paramedics were surprised to see that the guy was still alive, let alone breathing. He was in terrible condition. Putting an oxygen mask on him and hooking him up to a cardiac monitor, they saw his heartbeat at 265 beats per minute. Too fast. Sedating him, they tried to slow it down. Checking his breathing and blood pressure, the paramedics find him breathing, but in an irregular manner, as well as the blood pressure being 80/45; too low. He was suffering from myocardial contusion - a bruising of the heart. Damn. For now, all they can do is try to keep him stable. Seeing all the lacerations, the paramedics quickly apply some pressure and sterilise and clean the wounds before stitching them up and bandaging them. This took them about 45 minutes overall. His left femur was also sticking out. The paramedics sterilised the puncture area and placed the leg in a splint, hoping that they weren't too late for an infection to happen.

Soon enough, the ambulance reaches the hospital. The paramedics efficiently take the stretcher off the ambulance and rush it into the hospital so that the other wounds could be treated. Reaching the operating room for him, they place him onto the operating table, set everything up, and the doctors start the operation as fast as possible. First of all, they use anaesthetics in order to make sure their patient somehow wakes up. Next, they shove the bones back in their original spot, after they got loosened trying to remove the splint. They then cut a hole around the knee, and placed a specially designed titanium rod into the intramedullary space - the inside of the bone - of the femur, holding the bone in place. Then, using some of their tools, they screw the rod in place, making sure that the femur stayed put. Looking around the head, they saw that the skull had fractured. Considering that the skull could easily heal itself, they just sutured the wound close.

The doctors better patched up the paramedics' healing job, and began cutting him open. After doing so, what they find is a bruised heart, and broken ribs that nearly pierced the lung. The heart had a damaged artery, meaning they had to repair it quickly. Doing that, they also drained any of the spilling blood to prevent any complications. The lungs were closely checked to see if they were injured. Fortunately, they weren't. So they moved on to repairing the ribs. They easily did so using some bone staples to fix it. Done patching him up, they closed the body.

Finished with the operation, the patient was placed on another stretcher and placed him in a reserved room. Hoping the surgery was good enough to fix his injuries, the nurse proceeds to check his contact info to call his parents.
