through my 1.5 years experience in General Intensive Care Unit (ICU) , a common word used by our staff in a daily basis or even by other staff in another hospital , a word called ” Gasping ” ………
“this patient is gasping right now !!! ” what does it sound for u ??
it means that the patients’ soul is now coming out from his body !!!!
ohhhh i know ……..what a post !!!!……
don’t know but just found my self want to talk a little bit about this kind of thing !!!!
now for sure you wonder how we can know that ? !!!
it can be detected through a special movement in patients’ head …..a kind of tilting it upward and downward along with a sound just like a person who is drowning and gasping for air……the time this movement took differs from person to another ….it can lasts hours while in another it can lasts less than an hour …..sob7an allah personally i believe that it depends on the persons’ faith itself …..
now u do what u should do,what your responsibility and duty ,for saving that patient , needs; whether raising blood pressure or enhancing oxygen satuaration in blood or anything u can save the patient with …..
but the hard thing is ……..
when you saw his/her family while they visits him/her ……u just simply couldn’t tell them that it CAN be the last time u can see your beloved one so they can say goodby for him or at least recite some holy quran for him/her ……u can just give them an image that his/her condition is very critical and encourage them to recite some holy quran …..
its a strange feeling when u know that this person is gonna die within couples of hours!!!!
what contradict here ; that on the other side i see it as a privilege for me …..how come?!!
our prophet mohammed said (peace be upon him) :
لَقِّنُوا مَوْتَاكُمْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، فَإِنَّ مَنْ كَانَ آخِرُ كَلَامِهِ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ “
i saw it as a gift being beside any one even it will be at the street and have a chance to help in al tashahood to say : أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمد رسول الله
our prophet (peace be upon him) do that by himself , he goes where ever he heard that any one is dying and help him to do so ……
on the other side also its a way to remind you always that you are gifted by having your beloved ones beside you and living healthy …..reminded you by the fact of dying that all we will face one day …..that this life is too short and silly to worry about…..remind you to be down to earth when dealing with people because we all be there below that soil………
