According to the Daily Mail of May 18, the 32-year-old man, whose name and nationality are unknown, is obese and has high blood pressure. Men due to abdominal pain to the hospital, self-reported at home to do a positive pregnancy test, also known as urinary incontinence, indicating that the membranes have ruptured, about to give birth. However, the hospital judged that his abdominal pain was related to obesity and taking antihypertensive drugs. It was doubtful that he was pregnant.
On the same day, the nurse saw that the man was in stable condition and asked him to do the pregnancy test first according to the procedure. Hours later, B-mode ultrasound showed that he was pregnant and in labor before being pushed into the delivery room for emergency caesarean section. Unfortunately, serious complications affected the fetus and the man gave birth to a dead baby.
Originally, the man was actually a transgender, with the gender labeled male on his medical record. The tragic case was published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday (15), suggesting that if nurses took the special patient more seriously and gave birth to a caesarean section at the first time, they might be able to usher in the birth of a baby. The author of the article, Dr. Duffner Stromsha of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, argues that the word male in medical records causes medical staff to ignore patientsactual medical needs. If female patients seek medical advice, I believe that the hospital will immediately arrange to enter the gynecology and obstetrics examination and evaluation, rather than let them suffer for several hours.
According to reports, the patient had previously taken testosterone to inhibit estrogen in order to reduce ovulation and maintain male signs, then stopped medication due to financial constraints, and her menstruation was interrupted for several months. At first, he did not take it seriously, until abdominal pain was unbearable, he suspected that he was pregnant, bought a pregnancy test stick, and then came to the hospital for help in childbirth.
