Two Collapse After Eating Hamburger

In Health on April 25, 2012 at 10:34

Fast Food is proving to be a killer.

Some of them affect immediately, some a little later.

Why can’t people go back to Home Food?

There is a Limit to Fun.

‘The infamous restaurant that makes people wear hospital gowns when they order their ‘bypass burger’ got their ‘flatliner fries’ in a twist when a greedy punter collapsed with a suspected heart attack – at The Heart Attack Grill.

The 40-something unnamed woman allegedly enjoyed her calorific fat feast, as well as cigarettes and margarita cocktails, before she collapsed, according to the Medical Daily.

An ambulance arrived at the scene shortly and the woman is expected to recover.

This is the second heart attack casualty at the notorious eatery in Las Vegas after another diner suffered heart failure after chomping on a 6,000kcal ‘triple bypass burger’.

The restaurant, which also serves up ‘flatliner fries’ and 9,983 kcal ‘quadruple bypass burgers’ presented by waitresses dressed up as nurses, opened last October. It is currently holds the Guinness World Record for having the highest amount of calories ever in a burger.

Although the restaurant claims that it warns hungry diners about its fat-infested patties, people still flock back for more – probably because the grill offers free meals for super-sized people over 350 pounds.

“Who doesn’t want to risk a little danger every once in a while,” Basso told CBS This Morning following the February heart attack. “If I can put danger back into hamburgers, all the better,” restaurant owner Jon Basso told USA Today.

Live Heart Surgery Video.

In Interesting and funny, Medicine, videos on February 25, 2012 at 04:40

I often wonder how a Heart Surgery is done.

Twitter has uploaded a series of Heart Surgery and these are available in You Tube also

Following is a reproduction.

“Doctors at Houston’s Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital have made medical and social media history by live-tweeting an open-heart surgery for the first time.

Yes, you read that correctly.

On Tuesday, Dr. Michael Macris performed a double-coronary artery bypass on a 57-year-old patient. Dr. Macris’ colleague, Dr. Paresh Patel, provided 140-character updates throughout the procedure and answered questions submitted by followers of the hospital’s @houstonhospital Twitter account.

Dr. Macris also wore a camera attached to his head, according to Texas Monthly, and Dr. Patel snapped additional photos.

The tweets, photos and video are all compiled in a Storify story created by the hospital. It’s embedded here below and very graphic — though you’ll be glad to know the patient made it through surgery.

The procedure and live-tweeting lasted about 2 hours. Dr. Patel provided updates on the type of surgery, what Dr. Macris was doing and why, and the duties and roles of other members of the surgery team. The hospital currently has just over 5,100 Twitter followers.

In one post, Dr. Patel called the live-tweeting “an educational look into a common double bypass #surgery.”
