Doctor of Medicine died suddenly at the age of 37!


On August 22, Dr. Yang Hongfa, a 37-year-old cardiologist at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanhua University, Hengyang, Hunan Province, was busy from the laboratory to the dormitory after midnight during his doctorate study. He suddenly died of sudden cardiac death and never woke up. His roommate found his body the next morning.

When he saw this news, Xiaobei was very sad: a cardiovascular physician died of sudden cardiac death.

Dr. Yang Hongfa has excellent medical skills, and the patients are waiting outside the operating roomThree hours later, send him a banner with the words "good hands, kindness, patience and friendliness".

Colleagues say he worksFor eight years, almost all the year round, we fought in the clinical front line. "It is customary to have a hot meal before it is too late".

Yang Hongfa's wife is also a doctor. She once described that her husband's first feeling when he comes home every day is tired, "he can sleep on the sofa".


During the epidemic in Wuhan, he was one of the first members of the medical team in support of Huanggang, Hubei Province in Hunan Province, and had volunteered to joinThe ICU team has won many honorary titles for treating critically ill patients.

The 37-year-old chief physician, with excellent medical skills and honor, can not be promoted to a senior professional title because he does not have a doctor's degree according to the regulations, so he went to study for a doctor's degree and signed a contract with the hospital.

In September 2021, he was admitted to the on-the-job doctoral candidate of Southern Medical University until he was 37 years old.

After seeing the life of Dr. Yang Hongfa, it is not difficult to conclude that excessive fatigue is the main cause of his sudden death.

Excessive fatigue will increase cardiac load and cause arrhythmia, while malignant arrhythmia, such as ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, can lead to sudden death.


In addition, often staying up late will make people's sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves in a state of dysfunction; Irregular eating and rest will lead to low sugar and low potassium, electrolyte disorder and arrhythmia, which is an important cause of sudden cardiac death.

In addition to cardiogenic factors, fatigue can also induce cerebrovascular disease, which may also lead to sudden death. The common ones are brainstem infarction and brainstem hemorrhage, which lead to the loss of life in a short time. Therefore, it is necessary to arrange work and rest time to avoid excessive fatigue and prevention is more important than treatment.
