In China doctors managed to save 23-year-old woman with fulminant myocarditis. The heart of the Chinese did not fight for three days, said the Global Times.
Patient was treated with ecmo to ensure the breathing and heart support, and eventually the doctors were able to resume normal work of the heart.
The doctor said that the cause of the deterioration of the health of the woman was that she always went to bed late the night before, which led to a weakening of its immune system. A few days before entering the hospital, she caught a cold, which caused myocarditis and as a result in cardiogenic shock.
During treatment, the patient remained conscious and could talk with others, despite the fact that she had no heartbeat.
