  双语丨大爱无疆 湖南援塞医生被点赞

“他出众的能力,已让他成为众所周知的人。”卡努院长在感谢信中写道。

  "His outstanding ability has made him a well-known person here," Kanu said in the letter.

  “他是医院有史以来最好的外科医生之一,感谢中国政府能派遣他来到我们医院。”3月20日,一封来自万里之外的塞拉利昂中塞友好医院院长卡努所写的感谢信,被湖南省卫计委转送到了湖南省人民医院。

  "He is a good Chinese doctor who devoted himself to his work. We really appreciate it that the Chinese government can send him, an excellent surgeon, to our hospital," said a letter written by Dr Alex Kanu, the dean of Sierra Leone-China Friendship Hospital, that was put on the desk of the Health and Family Planning Commission of Hunan Province Wednesday.

  而被他点赞的“good Chinese doctor”,是来自湖南省人民医院的普外科专家、急诊二科副主任,也是中国(湖南)第19批援助塞拉利昂医疗队队员之一的熊邦文。

  The good Chinese doctor is Xiong Bangwen a Chinese doctor who won respect and admiration in Sierra Leone for his extraordinary medical skills and dedication during his deployment in the African country.

  在塞拉利昂,尽管中塞友好医院是最大的综合医院,但医疗设备简陋、医疗资源紧张,当地医生仅有2名。因此,救死扶伤的重担压在中国医疗队员肩上。而医院外科以普外科为主,熊邦文是队里唯一的普外科医生。

  Xiong, a surgeon from the People's Hospital of Hunan Province, arrived in Sierra Leone with 19 other doctors in May 2017 to provide medical aid to the disease-ravaged country. Based at the Sierra Leone-China Friendship Hospital in Freetown, capital of Sierra Leone, Xiong's daily routine there is packed with surgeries due to a shortage of staff members.

  3月10日,中塞友好医院收治了一名35岁的当地男子,他急性腹痛3天,且已神志不清。由于病情紧急,院长卡努请熊邦文进行紧急会诊。经检查,患者腹部隆起,全腹压痛、反跳痛,已有感染性休克。由于医院没有CT,诊断不能明确,且病人不宜转运检查。

  On March 10, for example, a 35-year-old man who had suffered from acute abdominal pain for three days and had fallen into a clouded mental state was sent to the hospital. As the hospital was unequipped with modern medical facilities, such as a type B ultrasound scanner and CT scanner, a diagnosis couldn't be made.

  危急时刻,熊邦文结合自己多年的临床经验,判断患者可能是乙状结肠扭转,必须马上手术。否则,患者将有生命危险。

  Based on the limited availability of sophisticated medical equipment, Xiong used his rich clinical experience to diagnose a volvulus sigmoid colon.

  此时,熊邦文刚连续完成两台手术,已经下班,但救人要紧,他毅然决定为患者进行剖腹探查术。The patient needed surgery immediately or risked losing his life. Although Xiong had just performed two operations in succession, he braced himself for his third operation in one day.

  术中,发现患者乙状结肠扭转并坏死,随后,他果断而谨慎地为其进行了坏死结肠切除术。经过4小时的救治,熊邦文及其团队成功挽救了这名男子的生命。

  After four hours, Xiong and his team managed to save the critically ill patient in the first sigmoid colon torsion necrosis operation performed in Sierra Leone.

  据悉,乙状结肠扭转是一种极其严重的急腹症,死亡率高。此次,熊邦文手术团队成功抢救这名危重病人,是塞拉利昂开展的首例乙状结肠扭转坏死+肠切除+结肠造痿术。

  Xiong Bangwen's surgical team successfully rescued the critically ill patient. It was the first sigmoid colon torsion necrosis ,bowel resection ,colostomy performed in Sierra Leone.

  Last year, he and his teammates saved the life of a critically ill patient who suffered volvulus and intestinal necrosis, carrying out the surgery despite several power failures.

  去年11月的一个晚上,熊邦文在连续完成两台手术后,为一名消化道穿孔、急性腹膜炎合并双侧腹股沟疝嵌顿,并已合并感染性休克的当地患者接台紧急手术,抢救进行到深夜,赢得当地群众的高度赞扬。

医疗队不仅提供了医疗救助,而且成为两国建立更强大友谊的桥梁。

  The medical team not only provided medical aid, but acted as a bridge that built a stronger friendship between the two countries.
