Xiao Yu began to have convulsions due to rapidly developing myocarditis. The left ventricle of his heart practically ceased to pump blood, but after a series of intensive resuscitative actions the boy's condition stabilized.

Doctors from the hospital contacted doctors from Shanghai and requested extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), a life-support system that nourishes the blood with oxygen and takes over the work of the heart.While they were waiting for the ambulance to arrive from Shanghai (the distance was 180 kilometers), Xiao Yu's condition worsened. His heart stopped, he could not breathe, the pressure dropped so low that the doctors could no longer measure it.

And then about 30 doctors and nurses were immediately called to the ward to help the boy survive until the ambulance arrived. For five hours, 30 people took turns forcing the heart of the child to work so that blood would flow to the brain. By the time the car came from ECMO from Shanghai, the doctors had done a total of more than 30 thousand chest presses, causing the small heart to beat.

The doctor who took part in the rescue, Xiao Yu, said that their team tried their best: “We did everything we could to save the boy, it would be incredibly sad if we had surrendered. We all wish him a speedy recovery. ”
Now Xiao Yu is in a children's hospital at Fudan University, where, we hope, the same dedicated doctors work.
