An old video of a doctor saving the life of a newborn has gone viral. In the video, Dr Surekha Chaudhary can be seen performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation to revive a newborn baby. The video was posted by Sachin Kaushik, a police officer from UP. The incident took place in March 2022 at a Pediatrician at a Community Health Centre (CHC) in Agra, Uttar Pradesh.
The baby girl was born through normal delivery she had difficulty breathing due to prolonged labour. There was no movement in the body, the doctor tried to give oxygen support to the baby but even that didn’t help. Dr Choudhary sprang into action. The doctor gave her mouth-to-mouth respiration to the newborn for about 7 minutes relentlessly after which she started showing movement.
Mr Kaushik also shared a follow-up video in another tweet, in which Dr Choudhary can be seen massaging and patting the back of the newborn. After the baby starts to breathe, Dr Choudhary can be seen smiling and rocking the baby in her arms.
Check out the video here:
डॉक्टर सुलेखा चौधरी, पीडियाट्रीसियन, CHC, आगरा।
बच्ची का जन्म हुआ लेकिन शरीर में कोई हलचल नहीं थी।
बच्ची को पहले ऑक्सिजन सपोर्ट दिया, लेकिन जब उससे भी लाभ नहीं हुआ तो लगभग 7 मिनट तक ‘माउथ टू माउथ रेस्पिरेशन’ दिया, बच्ची में साँस आ गई।👏🏼❤️#Salute#Doctor#respectpic.twitter.com/1PQK8aiJXQ
