Long Drive, an Automatic Car & Tight Jeans Become Recipe for 30-year-old Delhi Man's Near Death Experience
30-year-old Saurabh Sharma suffered a pulmonary embolism, a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in the lungs, because of his non-stop eight-hour-long drive in tight-fitting denims.
New Delhi: Just going out for a long drive in an automatic car. That is what 30-year-old Saurabh Sharma, a businessman, had thought before undertaking an eight-hour-long drive. Little did he know that the drive would end with a swollen leg and an emergency trip to the hospital.
Sharma suffered a pulmonary embolism, a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in the lungs, because of his non-stop eight-hour-long drive in automatic car while donning tight-fitting denims.
Sharma was on his way to Rishikesh in his automatic car, when he started feeling a pain in his calves. According to an Indian Express report, he ignored the pain. However, two days later his legs were swollen. "I suffered a blackout for five minutes apart from breathlessness and sweating," he was quoted by Indian Express as saying.
He fainted and was found by his colleagues who rushed him to a hospital. At the hospital, the doctors found that Sharma's BP and pulse rate were very low and had to perform CPR to revive him. He was then put on a 24-hour dialysis therapy after he found that his kidneys were unable to function properly.
The Indian Express report quoted Dr Naveen Bhamri, the Director & HoD of Cardiology at Max Super Speciality Hospital (Shalimar Bagh) where Sharma was treated, as saying that the prolonged sitting in uncomfortable clothes had led to the problem.
