While human NHS physicians watch:
According to Thasee Pillay, Nair’s assisting surgeon, these overseeing proctors had apparently “gone to the coffee shop” right in the middle of the procedure, which prevented them from being able to take the reins once it became clear that Pettitt’s life was at risk from the surgical robot going rogue. Pillay also stated that he had no idea that these overseers were planning on not staying throughout the entirety of the surgery.
“I had no idea of their timescale and that they were not staying for the duration,” he’s quoted as saying. “The proctors leaving was a crucial moment. The loss of that vital assistance was a major blow at a critical time.”
Overseeing proctors were sipping lattes while surgical robot punctured patient’s aortic septum, splashing blood all over robot camera
At one point during the botched surgery, the surgical robot actually punctured Pettitt’s intra aortic septum, resulting in so much blood being splattered on its camera that doctors could no longer see what the robot was doing.
Nair stated during the follow-up hearing that he couldn’t effectively communicate with Pillay via the robot’s microphone system as this was happening because the sound was largely inaudible.
“We were not far apart, but Mr. Nair’s voice comes through a microphone and it is tinny,” he stated. “The acoustics were not very good.”
“There were times when I raised my voice. One was when the sutures were not being placed in an organised fashion and were criss-crossed.”
A scene from a horror film played out at your local government deathcare facility.
From their imagined beginnings a century ago, the automatons were supposed to “help” us by doing tedious or complicated chores. Like heart surgery. Would you trust one?
Bad acoustics, live streaming, and blood spilling. While men sip lattes, the machines advance their war of extermination.
Okay, back to your all-important televised college football.
