A 65-year-old man was rushed to the hospital after having difficulties while singing in karaoke.
KAMI learned that the man who was identified by his surname Wang was admitted to the hospital in China and was discovered to have collapsed lungs.
In a report by the South China Morning Post, the man coming from Nanchang County in Jiangxi Province belted out 10 high-pitched songs in the karaoke.
"I was very excited in the heat of the moment and after singing a few songs with very high notes, I found myself having breathing difficulties,” Wang said.
According to some reports, the man tried to ignore his difficulties at first. However, he was taken to the hospital when the pain grew.
Newsweek reported that doctor Peng Bin-fei claimed that the situation of the man was caused by “singing high notes” and could have been life-threatening.
“The patient suffered from a lung collapse because of the high lung pressure caused by singing high notes,” the doctor explained.
The doctor also advised people to limit karaoke sessions to two hours at a time.
“It’s better not to sing for a period of over two hours,” he said.
As per Mayo Clinic, the technical term for collapsed lung is pneumothorax. The symptoms of pneumothorax include shortness of breath and chest pains.
