HOLY SHIT. It was like the heart was incased in black pudding. Wow. Looks like the heart wall had a hole.
Possibly or it could've been a hematoma induced by trauma. You see that alot in mvas that were unrestrained n hit their steering wheel.
CPR can cause it to, it's a huge risk of good deep effective compressions, but if they were already coding then the tamponade didn't kill em, they were already dead. Just wanting in limbo.

Ya. there wasn't much back story on how the injury happend. I just commented that it looked like this:

That's what the medical community and TV gotta clear up. Normies think that a couple of minutes of CPR and BOOM, the patient is up and about running marathons like nothing happened. Most don't know that broken ribs, punctured lungs, fractured sternums, etc., happen and are frequent even by people who do that sort of stuff for a living. For God's sake you are compressing a cage that was designed not to compress, to artificially employ a muscle.

When you crack ribs it sounds like balsa wood breaking wrapped in silly putty. . Feels like it too. Its weirder still when they look at you but you tend to not think about it because of the tunnel vision effect.

I should look up the history behind CPR, I think one of my legends of surgery podcasts went over it actually, it's pretty neat how they kinda discovered and tweaked it.

Yeah that muffled "pop" or "snap."

A trail run near the California coast may have led a woman to contract a horrifying infection with a rare parasitic eye worm.
The woman is only the second person known to have contracted this particular worm, which typically infects cows, according to a new report of the case, published Oct. 22 in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.
The 68-year-old woman lives in Nebraska but spends her winters in California in an area called Carmel Valley. The inland valley located about 13 miles (21 kilometers) from the coast is known for its wineries and hiking trails.
She was there in March 2018 when she felt irritation in her right eye and so flushed the eye with tap water. That's when a 0.5-inch (1.3 centimeters), wriggly roundworm came out. After this discovery, she looked more closely at her eye and saw a second roundworm, which she also removed, the report said.

The next day, the woman went straight to an eye doctor in Monterey, California, who retrieved a third roundworm (also known as a nematode) from the woman's eye and preserved the worm in formaldehyde. The doctor told the woman to continue to flush her eye with distilled water to remove any more worms. She was given a topical medication to prevent any bacterial infections from taking hold.
The preserved worm sample was sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where researchers determined that the woman was infected with a species of eye worm called Thelazia gulosa. Only one other human case of T. gulosa has ever been reported, in a 26-year-old Oregon woman who became infected in August 2016, Live Science previously reported. The worm usually infects cattle and is carried by certain types of face flies that consume eye secretions.

Tetanus, also known as lockjaw, is a bacterial infection characterized by muscle spasms.[1] In the most common type, the spasms begin in the jaw and then progress to the rest of the body.[1] Each spasm usually lasts a few minutes and spasms occur frequently for three to four weeks.[1] Spasms may be severe enough to cause bone fractures.[6] Other symptoms of tetanus may include fever, sweating, headache, trouble swallowing, high blood pressure, and a fast heart rate.[1][6] Onset of symptoms is typically three to twenty-one days following infection.[1] Recovery may take months.[1] About ten percent of cases prove fatal.[1]

Tetanus is caused by an infection with the bacterium Clostridium tetani,[1] which is commonly found in soil, saliva, dust, and manure.[2] The bacteria generally enter through a break in the skin such as a cut or puncture wound by a contaminated object.[2] They produce toxins that interfere with normal muscle contractions.[3] Diagnosis is based on the presenting signs and symptoms.[1] The disease does not spread between people.[1]

Tetanus occurs in all parts of the world but is most frequent in hot and wet climates where the soil contains a lot of organic matter.[1] In 2015 there were about 209,000 infections and about 59,000 deaths globally.[4][5] This is down from 356,000 deaths in 1990.[7] In the US there are about 30 cases per year, almost all of which have not been vaccinated.[8] Description of the disease by Hippocrates exists from at least as far back as the 5th century BC.[1] The cause of the disease was determined in 1884 by Antonio Carle and Giorgio Rattone at the University of Turin, and a vaccine was developed in 1924.[1]

Symptoms
Tetanus often begins with mild spasms in the jaw muscles—also known as lockjaw or trismus. The spasms can also affect the facial muscles resulting in an appearance called risus sardonicus (pictured below). Chest, neck, back, abdominal muscles, and buttocks may be affected. Back muscle spasms often cause arching, called opisthotonos. Sometimes the spasms affect muscles that help with breathing, which can lead to breathing problems.[1]

Prolonged muscular action causes sudden, powerful, and painful contractions of muscle groups, which is called "tetany". These episodes can cause fractures and muscle tears. Other symptoms include fever, headache, restlessness, irritability, feeding difficulties, breathing problems, burning sensation during urination, urinary retention and loss of stool control.[9]

Even with treatment, about 10% of people who contract tetanus die.[1] The mortality rate is higher in unvaccinated people and people over 60 years of age.[1]

Ecmo is a form of lung bypass where two huge tubes are put into you right above the big blood vessels in you heart.
They constantly take the blood out of you, take the CO2 out and put oxygen back into the blood, cuz your lungs aren't working and can't do the exchange.

Usually these pts are in a medically induced coma. They have to be, they're usually very sick and any movement could dislodge those big tubes and they will bleed out very very quickly.

This fucker is playing b-ball.

That's fucking amazing.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Mordake

An account described Mordake's figure as one with remarkable grace and with a face that is similar to that of an Antinous.[1] The second face had a pair of eyes and a mouth that drooled[2] that it was female[3] The duplicate face could not see, eat or speak out loud but was said to "sneer while Mordake was happy" and "smile while Mordake was weeping".[4]Mordake repeatedly begged doctors to have his "demon face" removed, claiming that it whispered things that "one would only speak about in hell" at night, but no doctor would attempt it. According to the legend, Mordake committed suicide at the age of 23,[4] after he secluded himself to a room.[5]

Fake news.

The Museum of Hoaxes site seems to have uncovered the answer. They found an article titled, “The Wonders of Modern Science: Some Half Human Monsters Once Thought to Be of the Devil’s Brood,” in an 1895 issue of the Boston Sunday Post with the exact story Gould and Pyle printed. It was written by a poet named Charles Lotin Hildreth—fiction, presented as nonfiction.

I kinda figured it might be, the pic I found looked almost like a doll or wax replica, and the only text on him were those books on freaks of nature sort of publications that also talked about portents n women born like mermaids.
