There are many accidental cases that happen in a very unpredictable way and the only thing a person can do is rush to the nearest healthcare center. In a somewhat similar case a  34 years old male from Lahunipada area, working in a Kalunga establishment on night duty, was admitted to JP Hospital Rourkela with a severe head injury caused by the sudden dragging of his entire body with his head in front, towards the blade of a large fan machine, which rotated over his head in speed. The patient had suffered an extreme and deep injury to the scalp, cranial bone & brain matter.

The Patient & His Extent of Injuries

The patient admitted under Dr. Susanta Kumar Patro Senior Consultant Neuro Surgeon was immediately shifted to the modular JP OT for an emergency life-saving surgery, which lasted hours. Any delay could have been fatal for the patient as his condition was precarious. All the dead bones & skin were removed and careful reconstruction of the injured & defective parts was done.
