A 25-year-old anesthetist posted on a series of cartoons on Weibo yesterday which he had drawn to communicate with a deaf-mute mother undergoing a C-section operation.

The young anesthetist, Yao Xiang, made the drawings hastily before the cesarean on Monday, after he was told to draw something to explain the procedure to the patient, according to a nurse at the hospital.


“Please maintain this position while the anesthetic is being administered.”

“Lie on your back after the injection is complete. Let me know if you feel uncomfortable.”

“You will experience some discomfort when we try to get the baby out. Try to breath with your mouth. You’ll feel fine once the baby is out!”

“Let me know immediately if you experience any of the following: nausea, wanting to vomit, palpitation, or dizziness.”

“Does it hurt? Are you OK?”

The surgery was a success and a healthy baby boy was delivered.

“I just wanted her to be safe,” says Yao, adding that he likes drawing and draws whenever he has the time.
