have a chance of surviving appendicitis.
He managed to do this with the help of his non-medical colleagues by
instructing them on holding lights and resuscitation methods if he should
lose consciousness.

After 2 hours he had successfully completed the operation. Only when the
instruments were cleaned and the place tidied up did he take antibiotics and
painkillers and go to sleep.
