On Jan. 10, Zhao went on holiday to the US, and was sat on a flight from San Francisco to Honolulu when, after three hours, the plane's radio suddenly announced that an elderly American passenger had suffered a sudden angina attack and was looking for medical help.
At first, Zhao wasn't sure if her Australia nurse license would allow her to help this old man. But she finally made the decision to help. When she went to the old man, two American doctors and two nursing interns also rushed to help.
"After examining the patient's pulse, we found that his blood pressure and pulse were slow, and the patient was vomiting and his heart was uncomfortable," Zhao said.
All five agreed to let the patient lie down and take aspirin, and after about 20 minutes, the situation improved.
However 40 minutes later, the passenger's condition worsened. This time, Zhao directly rushed to the patient's side.
After discussing with it together, they decided the patient needed a saline injection. Zhao cleverly used a clothes hanger as an infusion bottle in the cabin and injected the patient. This completely stabilized his condition, which lasted until the plane landed.
