Mr Himanshu Bharadwaj has been declared dead by doctors and left in the Morgue overnight but suddenly ‘wakes up’ just before autopsy was due to be carried out on him
Large crowd gathered outside the hospital in protests and accusing the hospital of negligence and incompetence but the Bharadwaj’s family are thanking of a pure “miracle” the he’s still alive.
The autopsy was just about to begin on Himanshu Bharadwaj, who had been pronounced dead by doctors, before a pathologist detected a pulse.
Bharadwaj had been seriously injured in a car accident. After his condition worsened in hospital, he was first declared brain dead and then later, medically dead.
Dr C Gedam of the Chhindwara District Hospital said the man continues to be brain dead and still needs treatment, Dr said to News 18 outlet.
According to reports in Daily Bhaskar, the body was kept in the morgue overnight before the planned post-mortem,
The man was declared brain-dead and upon his arrival at Chhindwara hospital his respiration was dysfunctional and the pulse was also missing. However, his respiratory organs began responding this morning after spending the night in mortuary.
At times, in brain-dead patients, the heart and the respiratory system stop functioning transiently, which seems to be the case here. Himanshu is still brain-dead. Thus, we have referred him to Nagpur due to lack of sufficient facilities locally, the Doctors said.
