 The court upheld the defendant after he broke 12 ribs of the old woman during cardiopulmonary resuscitation

On September 7, 2017, sun Xiangbo, the owner of a drugstore in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, broke 12 ribs while performing CPR for a woman named Qi Laotai (pseudonym) who fainted in her shop. At the end of October of that year, sun Xiangbo received a lawsuit from the court. The woman sued sun Xiangbo to the court, saying that sun Xiangbo needed to compensate nearly ten thousand yuan for her hospitalization expenses. At the same time, after the assessment of disability level, she also needed to compensate for the disability compensation.

On January 1, 2020, the reporter of Beijing Youth Daily learned from sun Xiangbo, the party concerned, that after two years waiting, he got the civil judgment of the local court on December 31, 2019. After more than two years of the incident, the court decided to reject the plaintiffs request for a lawsuit from Mrs. Qi. Sun Xiangbo indicated that he was very happy to wait for the judgment.

The drugstore opened by sun Xiangbo was previously located in the north gate of a large community in Kangping County, Shenyang, Liaoning Province. On September 7, 2017, at about 8:00 a.m., a 70 year old aunt came to the drugstore and said that she was a little stuffy and short of breath. Sun Xiangbo said, I took out the sphygmomanometer, and in the process of measurement, the aunt suddenly fell to the ground, and there was no breath and heartbeat. I quickly called 120 and started CPR for her.

Sun Xiangbo said that he has rural doctor certificate and medical practice license, so there will be no mistake in the judgment of the aunts physical condition and the whole CPR operation. The whole pressing process lasted for about ten minutes, during which the aunt had recovered consciousness, and the body also appeared obvious movements. Later, the ambulance rushed to take the old man to the hospital. After hospital examination, the old woman suffered from 12 rib fractures, hypokalemia and right lung contusion on both sides. She was hospitalized for 18 days.

The reporter of Beiqing daily learned from the training instructor of the first aider in a top three hospital that CPR needs to press the rescue object at a frequency of about 100 times per minute, which requires a large amount of force. In the process of CPR, it is very easy to cause fracture or bone fracture. Generally speaking, the requirements for first responders are that compared with rib fracture, life-saving must be put in the first place.

Sun Xiangbo said he didnt think much about it after it happened. He continued to run drugstores. However, in October 2017, sun Xiangbo received the indictment, and Mrs. Qi sued her to the court for two main reasons: first, Mrs. Qi thought that she had taken a pill given by sun Xiangbo to her in the drugstore, and then fainted; second, sun Xiangbo made cardiopulmonary resuscitation for herself, resulting in 12 rib fractures.

The reporter of Beiqing daily understands that in order to deal with this case, the local court has entrusted several appraisal institutions to carry out appraisal, but the appraisal institutions all think it is beyond the appraisal ability and do not conduct appraisal. Until November 2018, the court selected the medical experts in the database of Shenyang intermediate peoples court for consultation, the experts held a hearing, and inquired about the parties. The experts concluded that There is no inevitable causal relationship between the plaintiffs taking nitroglycerin drugs and cardiac arrest. Sun Xiangbo, the defendant, does not violate the diagnosis and treatment norms and should not bear the rescue fault in the process of CPR for the plaintiffs Qi.

Sun Xiangbo said that after doing CPR to the old man and breaking his ribs, he was concerned by the media. Many nearby residents knew about it. Before the courts decision came out, many things were unclear. The business of his drugstore was also gradually cold. He had to close the store in June 2019 and open a new clinic in another place.

Talking about how to deal with similar situations in the future, sun Xiangbo said that as a person with a doctors qualification certificate, he would definitely save each other if he met again, but he would keep the video of saving people.
