The mountains and seas are far apart, and the hearts and hands are closely connected. In recent years, Weiyuan County and Chengyang District of Qingdao have continuously increased their cooperation in medical cooperation. By implementing the management of Luoxi Hospital, increasing capital investment, building facilities, exchanging talents, and building disciplines, the rapid development of health care in Weiyuan County has been effectively promoted.
During the Dragon Boat Festival holiday this year, a parturient in Weiyuan County People’s Hospital suffered from rapid and massive bleeding and weak uterine contraction in a short time after giving birth to a newborn by cesarean section. After receiving the notice, Liu Qi, a help expert from Chengyang District People’s Hospital in Qingdao, arrived at the department at the first time to quickly understand the changes in the condition and guide the start of the emergency plan for obstetric hemorrhage.
"By adjusting anesthesia, optimizing fluid replacement and using vasoactive drugs, the circulation was stable. The operation lasted for more than four hours. After a lot of fluid replacement, blood transfusion and diuresis, the stability of maternal vital signs and the normal function of tissues and organs were ensured." Liu Qi said. During half a year’s assistance and cooperation, he mainly carried out surgical anesthesia, carried out new technology projects in the front line of clinical anesthesia, taught more than 200 cases in one-on-one teaching and guided practical operation, and gave more than 20 lectures on professional technology. In the form of small classes, he studied some new anesthesia methods and guidelines at home and abroad with everyone and shared his experience.
Since 2021, Weiyuan County has sent 55 medical technicians to Shandong Province for further study, which has achieved remarkable results, learned advanced diagnosis and treatment technology, promoted the improvement of medical technology and improved the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment service capacity. Qingdao Chengyang District People’s Hospital sent 12 experts to assist and guide the general surgery, critical care medicine, endocrinology, anesthesiology, brain department, pediatrics, cardiology and other departments of the county people’s hospital; Qingdao Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine sent 3 experts to help and guide the departments of orthopedics, cardiology, radiology and encephalopathy in the county hospital of traditional Chinese medicine, and 3 experts to help and guide the departments of neurology, obstetrics and gynecology and orthopedics in the county hospital of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine.
In 2022, Chengyang District helped 500,000 yuan to equip Huichuan Town Health Center and Yangzhuang Branch of Huichuan Town Health Center with 2 ambulances and vehicle-mounted equipment; The assistance fund is 4.94 million yuan, which is used for the construction of grassroots medical and health quality improvement projects in cooperation between the east and the west. Qingdao also donated more than 500,000 anti-epidemic materials to the county.
In 2023, the assistance fund was 300,000 yuan, which was used for the construction of primary health care quality improvement projects in cooperation between the east and the west. Seven medical institutions, including Chengyang Street Community Health Service Center in Chengyang District, donated 100,000 yuan to 11 medical institutions, including Qingyuan Community Health Service Center in Qingyuan Town, through the Weiyuan County Red Cross Society, to purchase medical equipment, further enhancing the county’s medical service capacity. Qingdao Hisense Medical Equipment Co., Ltd. donated medical materials worth 2.3 million yuan to the county hospital of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine.
Talents, technologies and ideas from Qingdao’s medical and health fields are being continuously imported into Weiyuan, based on expanding the space of health cooperation between the two sides, and promoting the exchange of ideas, interaction of ideas and mutual learning of styles. In the past three years, Qingdao City, Shandong Province has changed from "blood transfusion" to "hematopoiesis" by means of "personnel attachment, hospital-hospital cooperation, remote consultation, technical support and personnel training", thus realizing the desire of the people not to leave the county after serious illness.
