Synopsis

Zhou Xiaofeng is the Deputy Chief Physician of the Cardiology Department at Dongli Hospital. He has an introverted personality, strict self-discipline in both work and life, and is a key candidate for cultivation by the department head Bai Ji and the hospital leadership. He is a backbone figure in the Cardiology Department. He partners with Lin Yi, a straightforward and impulsive cardiovascular surgeon, in the Coronary Artery Team. The two have different medical philosophies, leading to significant differences.

Lin Yi, who recently joined the hospital, used to focus solely on surgeries at Xili Hospital and lacked communication and collaboration with colleagues. His direct supervisor and mentor, Cao Nuoya, believed that this was not conducive to his growth. Therefore, he recommended Lin Yi to work at the newly established Heart Center at Dongli Hospital.

Zhou Xiaofeng's sister, Fang Xiaoran, pursues her own ideals and aims to improve the relationship between her brother and their mother. She successfully enters Dongli Hospital and becomes an intensive care doctor in the Cardiovascular ICU. Throughout the process of treating and saving patients, these three individuals, starting from a lack of understanding and conflicts, gradually come to appreciate and support each other, evolving into excellent work partners.

Recap

Lin Yi is a cardiothoracic surgeon at Xi Li Hospital. He is the proud disciple of Cardiothoracic Department Head Cao Nuoya. For eight years, Lin Yi has not only worked diligently but also taken care of his brother, who suffers from dilated cardiomyopathy. Upon hearing that Dong Li Hospital has established a cardiac center, Cao Nuoya, with a heavy heart, sends Lin Yi to study there. Tomorrow marks Lin Yi's first day at Dong Li Hospital. As usual, he wakes up early to buy groceries when he sees an elderly man clutching his chest in pain. Lin Yi rushes to assess the situation.

The elderly man, named Wang Xi, is 63 years old. Lin Yi deduces from Wang Xi's symptoms that he is experiencing an acute myocardial infarction. Despite Wang Xi insisting that it's just a result of a previous fracture, Lin Yi persuades him to go to the hospital for a comprehensive examination. Wang Xi adamantly refuses, believing that the chest pain has subsided and that Lin Yi is misleading him. Concerned about the potential danger to Wang Xi's life, Lin Yi convinces a nearby vendor to call a taxi and forcefully takes Wang Xi to the hospital.

Lin Yi briefs the deputy chief cardiologist, Zhou Xiaofeng, about Wang Xi's condition and hastily leaves upon receiving news of his brother's deteriorating health. Zhou Xiaofeng instructs Wang Xi to undergo tests and recommends hospitalization, requiring a deposit of 15,000 yuan. Despite Wang Xi's reluctance due to financial concerns, Zhou Xiaofeng manages the situation. Suddenly, a patient in the ward under Zhou Xiaofeng's care starts choking, and he rushes to rescue the patient. Seizing the opportunity, Wang Xi quietly leaves the hospital.

Lin Yi rushes home to find his brother in critical condition. After calling emergency services, Lin Yi starts resuscitating his brother. By the time the paramedics arrive, his brother's condition stabilizes. The doctors warn Lin Yi about the hereditary nature of dilated cardiomyopathy. Meanwhile, Zhou Xiaofeng implants a pacemaker for another patient, successfully reviving their heartbeat. Upon returning to his office, Zhou Xiaofeng realizes that Wang Xi has left.

Inquiring about Wang Xi's condition over the phone, Lin Yi learns that Wang Xi claims the tests showed nothing wrong, and he has returned home. Cao Nuoya calls Lin Yi, advising him to learn well from Chief of Staff Cui Jing. Lin Yi takes note of the advice. Fang Xiaoran, an intensive care unit physician at Dong Li Hospital, diligently reviews the conditions of each patient early in the morning.

Bai Jishi, the director of the Cardiac Center, highly recommends Zhou Xiaofeng as the leader of the coronary artery team. Lin Yi rushes to a meeting, attracting the attention of young female doctors. Fang Xiaoran also notices Lin Yi, and an anesthesiologist named Xie Tianming acknowledges Lin Yi as an old acquaintance. Chief Cui Jing announces in the meeting that Zhou Xiaofeng has won the championship in the Heart-to-Heart Cardiovascular Medical Device Innovation Competition. This is the hospital's first prestigious award in five years. Everyone congratulates Zhou Xiaofeng. Cui Jing introduces Lin Yi, revealing that he is a prominent cardiac specialist and a student of Cao Nuoya. Zhou Xiaofeng immediately instructs his assistant Zhang Zhen to call Wang Xi back for reexamination.

After the meeting, the internal and external cardiology doctors conduct their rounds separately. Zhang Zhen discovers that Wang Xi's contact information is incorrect and reports to Zhou Xiaofeng. Remembering that Lin Yi has Wang Xi's contact details, Zhou Xiaofeng seeks him out for the phone number. Just as Zhou Xiaofeng is about to call Wang Xi, Zhang Zhen informs him that Wang Xi is experiencing a sudden heart attack and is being treated in the emergency room. However, it's too late, and Wang Xi has already lost his heartbeat. Despite efforts from Zhou Xiaofeng and Lin Yi, they are unable to revive him. Wang Xi's son is devastated, and Lin Yi watches him with a heavy heart.

Lin Yi confronts Zhou Xiaofeng, blaming him for negligence that led to Wang Xi's death. Zhou Xiaofeng feels guilty, and Jiang Junling calls Lin Yi to the operating room for assistance. The patient has a ruptured heart valve, posing a life-threatening situation. Lin Yi, with his exceptional skills, quickly repairs the valve. Extracorporeal circulation doctor Qiao Ye expresses admiration for Lin Yi's abilities and inquires about him with Xie Tianming.

Wang Xi's family blames the hospital for not providing effective treatment and demands accountability from the attending physician. An emergency meeting is called at the hospital, and Lin Yi receives an invitation to attend. Zhou Xiaofeng recounts the incident, and Bai Ji desperately defends him. Lin Yi questions Zhou Xiaofeng, suggesting that if Wang Xi had been kept for examination, the tragedy might have been averted. The meeting ends abruptly, with Lin Yi laying blame on Zhou Xiaofeng. Bai Ji hurriedly interrupts Lin Yi's accusations, concluding the meeting.

Wang Xi's family causes a scene at the hospital, surrounding Zhou Xiaofeng. Despite Zhou Xiaofeng repeatedly emphasizing that he issued the correct medical advice, Wang Xi refused to listen and left against medical advice. The family remains unrelenting. The director of the Medical Affairs Department, Lu Zhiping, reports to Chief Cui Jing, and they both rush to the scene. Upon hearing the commotion, Fang Xiaoran arrives and tries to persuade Wang Xi's son to sit down for a proper discussion. Feeling disheartened, Zhou Xiaofeng retreats to the corridor, where Lin Yi follows and chastises him.

Lin Yi interrogates Zhou Xiaofeng's conscience, but Zhou Xiaofeng doesn't want to explain too much. He believes he has fulfilled his responsibilities as a doctor and trusts that the hospital will handle the matter fairly. Lin Yi, frustrated, turns and leaves. He apologizes to Wang Xi's son, regretting not waiting a little longer that night for Wang Xi to complete all the examinations, which might have prevented the tragedy.

Cui Jing and Lu Zhiping discuss having Fang Xiaoran intervene to calm Wang Xi's family and then objectively and fairly handle the situation. Fang Xiaoran advises Zhou Xiaofeng to communicate with Wang Xi's family, but Zhou Xiaofeng is uncooperative. He even warns Fang Xiaoran not to reveal that they are siblings. Fang Xiaoran's mother, Fang Zhuqing, is a renowned specialist in cardiology, and before retiring, she was the head of the Cardiology Department at the First People's Hospital of Dongjiang. After divorcing Zhou Xiaofeng's father, Fang Zhuqing left him, leaving Zhou Xiaofeng deeply resentful.

From the doctors in the intensive care unit, Wang Xu and Zhao Yuliang, Fang Xiaoran learns that on the night of the emergency, there were too many patients, and Zhou Xiaofeng worked tirelessly without sleep. Wang Xi felt relief from chest pain and left on his own. Wang Xi's family comes to the hospital for mediation. Zhou Xiaofeng bows deeply, apologizing to them. Zhang Zhen steps forward as a witness, stating that Wang Xi didn't have his ID at the time and left an incorrect phone number, making it impossible to contact him.

Bai Ji retrieves the surveillance video from that day, clearly depicting the entire incident. Lin Yi hands over Wang Xi to Zhou Xiaofeng after completing surgery. Zhou Xiaofeng promptly conducts various tests on Wang Xi. At the time, there was a patient experiencing cardiac arrest, and Zhou Xiaofeng rushed to treat them, instructing Wang Xi to wait for his return. However, Wang Xi claimed to be fine, took matters into his own hands, and left. Zhou Xiaofeng, busy with duty that night, performed four surgeries in a row and didn't manage to bring Wang Xi back in time.

After watching the surveillance video, the family decides not to pursue the matter further. The hospital decides to criticize Zhou Xiaofeng, and he thanks Bai Ji for bringing the surveillance to reveal the truth. Zhou Xiaofeng realizes that all this was orchestrated by Fang Xiaoran. He expresses gratitude to Fang Xiaoran but criticizes her for leaving the First People's Hospital of Dongjiang. Fang Xiaoran considered Zhou Xiaofeng a role model from childhood and voluntarily moved to the Cardiac Center at Dongjiang Hospital.

Zhou Xiaofeng sees a female patient who suspects herself of having angina. Despite Zhou Xiaofeng insisting that it's due to menopausal reasons, the patient's husband secretly records the consultation. Zhou Xiaofeng faces the situation calmly. Fang Zhuqing is scheduled to consult in Sanya and takes a few days off. Once back in Dongjiang, she comes to the hospital to pick up Fang Xiaoran. They run into Zhou Xiaofeng, who greets them briefly and hurries away.

Fang Zhuqing speculates that Fang Xiaoran joined Dongjiang Hospital because of Zhou Xiaofeng. Fang Xiaoran, determined to work in the Cardiac Center, learned that Zhou Xiaofeng was avoiding her. Knowing this, Fang Zhuqing feels uncomfortable. Zhou Xiaofeng, seeing Fang Zhuqing again, recalls many past events. When Zhou Xiaofeng got into college, Fang Zhuqing came to deliver living expenses, but Zhou Xiaofeng firmly refused.

In his first outpatient consultation, Lin Yi recommends hospitalization and surgery, but the patient makes various excuses to refuse and insists on getting medication. Lin Yi is anxious and shouts at the patient, leading to a complaint. Chief Jiang Junling persuades the patient to be hospitalized, promising to personally perform the surgery. Jiang Junling verbally warns Lin Yi, reminding him to be more careful in the future. Lin Yi suggests triaging patients in the outpatient department to avoid delaying critical cases. Jiang Junling agrees, finding merit in the idea.

Patient Zhang Bingxian came to the hospital with unbearable chest pain. Lin Yi examined him and strongly suspected a highly fatal aortic dissection (A-dissection). As the blood vessel could rupture at any time, Lin Yi had Zhang Zhen push Zhang Bingxian through the green channel for examination and instructed the operating room to prepare. Jiang Junling took over Lin Yi's outpatient duties and asked him to perform surgery on Zhang Bingxian, a procedure Lin Yi had experience with and welcomed.

Lin Yi explained the patient's condition and the risks of surgery to Zhang Bingxian's wife and daughter. From his daughter, Lin Yi learned that a few days ago, Zhou Xiaofeng had diagnosed Zhang Bingxian with coronary syndrome, observed him for just a day, and then let him go home. Lin Yi personally performed the surgery on Zhang Bingxian, finding the pericardium filled with blood. He remained calm and completed the operation meticulously.

Cui Jing and Jiang Junling watched the entire surgical process and praised Lin Yi's medical skills. Zhang Bingxian was taken to the intensive care unit, and Lin Yi provided detailed information about his condition to Fang Xiaoran. Zhang Bingxian's daughter complained that Zhou Xiaofeng misdiagnosed her father. Bai Ji clarified that Zhou Xiaofeng had correctly diagnosed coronary syndrome, concealed the pain of a ruptured back, actively requested discharge, and that Zhang Bingxian showed no symptoms of aortic dissection before leaving the hospital. Lin Yi raised questions about Zhou Xiaofeng's diagnosis, leading to a heated argument between Zhou Xiaofeng and Lin Yi.

Fang Xiaoran defended Zhou Xiaofeng, presenting authoritative literature to prove that the later occurrence of aortic dissection was unrelated to the initial diagnosis. Bai Ji showed CT scan results from before Zhang Bingxian's discharge. Lin Yi admitted his mistake in front of Zhou Xiaofeng, and Jiang Junling asked Lin Yi to explain the situation to Zhang Bingxian's family.

During the ward rounds in the intensive care unit, Zhou Xiaofeng learned about Zhang Bingxian's condition. Lin Yi, however, was unappreciative and sarcastic. Fang Xiaoran confronted Lin Yi, vigorously defending Zhou Xiaofeng. Despite this, Lin Yi remained unyielding. The hospital decided to fine Lin Yi 300 yuan, and Jiang Junling worried that he might refuse to accept it.

Zhou Xiaofeng regularly lectures interns. When some interns asked for leave to attend a lecture by Fang Qingzhu, Zhou Xiaofeng adamantly refused. After finishing a class, Zhou Xiaofeng received a message from Zhang Zhen about a trauma patient from the emergency room. The patient had a drastic drop in blood pressure due to a heart rupture. Zhou Xiaofeng rushed to the scene, learned about the situation, and immediately performed surgery. Lin Yi received a call from Jiang Junling while leaving the operating table, instructing him to assist Zhou Xiaofeng.

The patient was suffering from severe pericardial bleeding. Zhou Xiaofeng and the medical staff made every effort to stop the bleeding, and Zhou Xiaofeng asked Lin Yi to continue with the next surgery. Hearing that Zhou Xiaofeng had been busy for a day and a night, Fang Xiaoran brought breakfast to him. Despite leaving only a sandwich, Zhou Xiaofeng had not had a chance to eat when an ambulance brought in a patient named Zhang Yuxi. Fang Xiaoran hurriedly followed to assist.

Zhang Yuxi, a salesperson for an e-commerce platform, had collapsed due to continuous overtime. Her colleagues rushed her to Dongjiang Hospital.

Lin Yi had just completed the surgery for a patient with a ruptured heart, and he admired Zhou Xiaofeng's solution for pericardial bleeding through puncture. Zhou Xiaofeng diagnosed Zhang Yuxi with aortic dissection. Fang Xiaoran called the cardiology department for help, and Lin Yi immediately rushed over. Fang Xiaoran brought an echocardiogram, performed an examination on Zhang Yuxi, and when Lin Yi saw her blood pressure dropping sharply, he decided to perform surgery.

Zhou Xiaofeng insisted on conducting a CT scan for confirmation before surgery, but Lin Yi, concerned about time constraints and the immediate danger of aortic dissection causing massive bleeding, explained the situation to the family and obtained their immediate consent. Zhou Xiaofeng tried hard to persuade Lin Yi to confirm the diagnosis before surgery to avoid potential disaster, but Lin Yi paid no attention.

Upon learning that Lin Yi was proceeding with surgery without confirming through a CT scan, Xie Tianming and Qiao Ye were reluctant to take the risk. Lin Yi voluntarily took full responsibility, and only then did they reluctantly agree to administer anesthesia to Zhang Yuxi. Zhou Xiaofeng reported the situation to Bai Ji, who immediately called Cui Jing. Cui Jing ordered Lin Yi to stop the surgery, but it was too late. Cui Jing cautioned Lin Yi repeatedly.

Jiang Junling, Zhou Xiaofeng, and Fang Xiaoran, one after another, came to watch the entire process of Lin Yi's surgery, and they all nervously watched. Lin Yi skillfully stopped the bleeding for Zhang Yuxi, and her blood pressure gradually returned to normal. However, her brain oxygen rapidly decreased, and Lin Yi had to complete the branch anastomosis within five minutes. Otherwise, irreversible brain damage could occur due to prolonged oxygen deprivation. Despite the standard anastomosis requiring ten minutes, if a CT scan had been done before the surgery, Lin Yi could have accurately located the branch.

With Zhang Yuxi's brain oxygen rapidly dropping, Cui Jing rushed to the scene. Lin Yi, relying on his excellent medical skills, quickly completed the anastomosis. Zhang Yuxi's various indicators gradually returned to normal, and everyone present breathed a sigh of relief. After the surgery, Cui Jing and Jiang Junling called Lin Yi to account for his actions. Lin Yi admitted that he did not follow the procedure for the surgery and was willing to accept any punishment. However, he didn't have time to wait for the CT scan results. Cui Jing explained the consequences to Lin Yi.

Fang Xiaoran explained Lin Yi's surgery to Fang Qingzhu, who thought Lin Yi was too reckless. Fang Xiaoran, on the other hand, praised Lin Yi's medical skills. Fang Qingzhu mistakenly believed that Fang Xiaoran liked Lin Yi, but Fang Xiaoran clarified that she actually disliked Lin Yi. Lin Yi's impulsive behavior resulted in a quarter of the bonus being deducted from the entire medical staff in the department. To avoid affecting everyone, Fang Xiaoran spoke up for Lin Yi, but Cui Jing insisted on following the proper procedure before surgery.

After the meeting, Lin Yi sought mercy from Cui Jing, asking not to penalize his colleagues' bonuses. However, Cui Jing remained firm. Zhou Xiaofeng was appointed as the leader of the coronary group, a position he was eager to take. Despite Zhang Yuxi's various indicators being normal, she remained in a coma. When Lin Yi examined her, Zhang Yuxi woke up in a daze, expressing gratitude to Lin Yi and even suggesting he consider her.

To compensate for the deducted bonuses, Lin Yi gave each penalized colleague some money, but they all returned it. Zhou Xiaofeng reminded Lin Yi to think twice in the future. Zhou Xiaofeng proactively messaged Fang Xiaoran to inquire about Zhang Yuxi's condition. Fang Xiaoran sent Zhang Yuxi's various indicators to him, and Zhou Xiaofeng expressed his gratitude, marking the first time he had initiated contact with her. Lin Yi dreamed that Zhang Yuxi had an accident, waking up in a cold sweat. His brother advised him and suggested they watch the blooming of night-blooming cereus together.

Cui Jing announced that Zhou Xiaofeng had been appointed as the leader of the coronary group, and everyone congratulated him. Lin Yi was suspended from work, having neither clinic nor surgery duties. Bored and idle, Zhou Xiaofeng arranged many night shifts for him without any days off. Lin Yi questioned if Zhou Xiaofeng was settling a personal grudge against him. Zhou Xiaofeng wanted him to gain more experience, and Lin Yi reluctantly acquiesced.

Zhang Yuxi was in low spirits, refusing to eat or drink. Lin Yi tried hard to persuade him and even fed him, a scene observed by Fang Xiaoran. Zhou Xiaofeng wanted to treat everyone to a meal over the weekend, but Lin Yi staunchly refused, advising Fang Xiaoran and others not to join the gathering. Fang Xiaoran teased him for holding grudges.

Zhang Yuxi's husband visited the hospital, and Yu Lingyun handed him the overdue payment notice for hospitalization expenses. He complained about Zhang Yuxi choosing such a poor workplace, which didn't provide social and medical insurance, and didn't even cover hospitalization expenses. Zhang Yuxi had savings of fifty thousand yuan, which he was asked to use to pay for the hospitalization. Fang Xiaoran noticed Zhang Yuxi's low spirits and offered kind words of encouragement. Zhou Xiaofeng was heading to the outpatient department, and as Zhang Zhen had a cold and cough, he couldn't accompany him. Lin Yi volunteered to be Zhou Xiaofeng's outpatient assistant.

Zhou Xiaofeng accurately diagnosed a patient's condition based solely on the suspension of clinic duties, earning Lin Yi's admiration. His brother's condition had stabilized recently, and Lin Yi took him downstairs to play with other children. Lin Yi called him to go home, but he was still reluctant to leave. Zhang Yuxi cried every day due to her bad mood. Fang Xiaoran played music to help relieve her stress. Zhang Yuxi was upset because of conflicts with her husband and parents. The more she thought about it, the sadder she became, finally breaking down in tears.

Suddenly, Zhang Yuxi started coughing and developed a fever. Fang Xiaoran conducted relevant examinations and called Lin Yi. Lin Yi deduced that Zhang Yuxi had a Klebsiella pneumoniae infection and advised Fang Xiaoran on the appropriate treatment. Lin Yi accidentally learned that Fang Xiaoran was the daughter of Fang Qingzhu. Fang Xiaoran consulted Zhou Xiaofeng about Zhang Yuxi's condition, and Zhou Xiaofeng agreed to use a ventilator; otherwise, Zhang Yuxi might suffocate to death. Fang Xiaoran considered informing Zhang Yuxi's parents, but Zhou Xiaofeng advised her not to let emotions cloud her judgment, supporting Lin Yi's suggestion. Fang Xiaoran used this opportunity to persuade Zhou Xiaofeng to reconcile with his mother, Fang Qingzhu, but he remained indifferent.

Fang Xiaoran truthfully explained Zhang Yuxi's condition to her husband. When he learned about the considerable expense for the ventilator, he complained about wasting money and suggested Zhang Yuxi leave the hospital and consult a renowned doctor. Zhang Yuxi recalled how she had insisted on marrying him against her parents' wishes, and he used to sweet-talk her. Now, things were different, and she was heartbroken.

Zhang Yuxi was heartbroken because of Tian Lei's heartlessness. Fang Xiaoran kindly advised her. Zhang Yuxi regretted marrying Tian Lei against her parents' wishes. Tian Lei let her down. Fang Xiaoran firmly believed that her parents wouldn't mind, so she urged Zhang Yuxi to inform them. Zhang Yuxi had already broken her parents' hearts, fearing they wouldn't forgive her. The reason she worked day and night was to earn their approval. Zhang Bingxian was next to Zhang Yuxi. He advised her to believe in her parents' unconditional love. Zhang Yuxi couldn't face her parents, so Fang Xiaoran had to give up.

Zhang Yuxi, disheartened and in worsening health, asked Fang Xiaoran to find her parents' contact information. She discovered they had moved. Fang Xiaoran asked Zhang Yuxi's classmates but found nothing. Lin Yi, unable to bear it, confronted Tian Lei. Tian Lei, for money, refused to use extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Lin Yi fought hard to save Zhang Yuxi from the brink of death. Angry and frustrated, he scolded Tian Lei, who ignored him and insisted on completing the discharge procedures for Zhang Yuxi.

After completing the procedures, Tian Lei ran into Zhou Xiaofeng. Zhou Xiaofeng understood Tian Lei's decision and advised him to call Zhang Yuxi's parents to avoid more trouble. When Zhang Yuxi's parents arrived late at night, Fang Xiaoran persuaded Nurse Yu Lingyun to let them visit. In the intensive care unit, Zhang Yuxi's parents, wearing protective suits, saw their frail daughter. The medical staff was moved, thinking Lin Yi had convinced Tian Lei to bring them. Zhang Yuxi's parents, after learning about ECMO, disagreed on its risks. Zhang's father was determined to save her, but Zhang's mother didn't want her to suffer.

Zhang's mother consulted Zhou Xiaofeng, a cardiologist. Unable to intervene in extracorporeal treatments, Zhou Xiaofeng thanked Zhang's mother for saving Zhang Yuxi. Feeling uneasy seeing Zhang's mother crying, he suggested trusting Lin Yi, who risked punishment to save Zhang Yuxi. Zhang's parents agreed to Lin Yi's treatment plan and signed the consent form.

Initially resistant to ECMO, Zhang Yuxi's attitude changed after a night of constant care from Fang Xiaoran and Lin Yi. People queued up to see Zhou Xiaofeng after hearing about his medical skills. Zhang Yuxi's father wrote a thank-you letter to Lin Yi, appreciating the medical staff at the Heart Center for saving his daughter. Meanwhile, Lin Yi received a disciplinary notice from the hospital but took pride in being a doctor.

Zhou Xiaofeng suggested creating a special registration line for patients unable to book appointments online. Cui Jing agreed and instructed Zhou Xiaofeng to keep an eye on Lin Yi. Despite Lin Yi's impatient temperament, Zhou Xiaofeng admired his sense of justice. Han Xiao accidentally witnessed Mrs. Zhang feeding persimmons to Zhang Bingxian, scolding her without knowing the full story. Zhang Bingxian, experiencing constipation again from eating persimmons, sought help from Han Xiao, leading to a messy situation. Zhang Bingxian's daughter recorded it and reported Han Xiao to the medical department, threatening to have her dismissed.

Despite Lin Yi's efforts, Han Xiao treated him coldly, leading to a heated argument. Cui Jing asked Zhou Xiaofeng to handle the situation. Lin Yi apologized to Zhang Bingxian on behalf of Han Xiao, who also felt guilty. Fang Xiaoran and Fang Qingzhu discussed Han Xiao's case, recognizing its complexity and hoping Zhou Xiaofeng would handle it wisely.

Zhou Xiaofeng and Yu Lingyun had a conversation with Han Xiao, who felt wronged. She had repeatedly advised Zhang Bingxian not to eat persimmons, as it could cause trouble for bedridden patients with constipation. However, Zhang Bingxian didn't listen, and Yu Lingyun sternly scolded him. Zhou Xiaofeng advised Han Xiao to apologize to Zhang Bingxian's family.

Zhou Xiaofeng and Yu Lingyun brought Han Xiao to meet Zhang Bingxian's daughter and wife. Zhang Bingxian's daughter insisted on dismissing Han Xiao and threatened to expose the matter to the media. Zhou Xiaofeng asked Han Xiao to leave first and tried to plead for her, but Zhang Bingxian's daughter remained adamant. She even mentioned Lin Yi's intention to dismiss Han Xiao. Zhou Xiaofeng promised to provide a satisfactory response within three days. Zhou Xiaofeng sought White Ji's help, suggesting reducing Zhang Bingxian's treatment fees, but White Ji insisted on firing Han Xiao. Zhou Xiaofeng worried about the impact on the morale of their nursing department colleagues, but White Ji remained unyielding.

Zhou Xiaofeng sought help from Lin Yi, asking him to appeal to Zhang Bingxian's family for leniency and give Han Xiao a chance to reform. Lin Yi firmly refused, leaving Zhou Xiaofeng disappointed. Lawyer Chen Yue from Xuanji Law Firm visited Zhou Xiaofeng to inquire about Zhang Yuxi's situation. Zhou Xiaofeng honestly shared the information, and Chen Yue admired Zhou Xiaofeng's care for patients. Chen Yue inquired about the details of Zhang Yuxi's surgery, suspecting overmedicalization at the hospital. Zhou Xiaofeng refused to answer, and Zhang Zhen, the security guard, was called to forcefully remove Chen Yue.

After extensive medical treatment, Zhang Yuxi's condition gradually improved. She wanted to return to her hometown for recuperation. Zhang Bingxian congratulated her. Han Xiao, after sending her child to kindergarten, came to the hospital lounge. She had never taken leave in many years, and now with free time on her hands and not wanting to worry her family, Fang Xiaoran advised her to rest. Later, she approached Lin Yi seeking his help, desperately trying to please him. She took Lin Yi to visit the ICU, attempting to make him empathize with her. Lin Yi, witnessing Han Xiao's mistreatment of patients, was also aware that she had caused Nurse Zhao to resign. However, Fang Xiaoran remembered that Nurse Zhao was dismissed due to unsatisfactory performance, unrelated to Han Xiao, and Lin Yi was unaware of this.

Chen Yue approached Lin Yi to inquire about Zhang Yuxi's condition. Zhou Xiaofeng sent a message warning Lin Yi to be cautious with Chen Yue, as she was hired by the company. Lin Yi responded with cold words, criticizing the company's leadership as heartless, and then left angrily, leaving Chen Yue aside. Zhang Bingxian's daughter came to negotiate with Zhou Xiaofeng, urging him to dismiss Han Xiao quickly. Zhou Xiaofeng lied, claiming the hospital director was away, asking her to wait one more day. Chen Yue couldn't help but mock Zhou Xiaofeng.

Zhou Xiaofeng approached Fang Xiaoran to discuss obtaining surveillance videos from the ICU. Fang Xiaoran voluntarily offered to edit a video showing Han Xiao's careful attention to Zhang Bingxian. She worked tirelessly, managing the video editing while taking care of patients. Fang Xiaoran, overwhelmed with busyness, stayed up all night but finally managed to edit the video.

As Zhang Bingxian's condition improved, he was scheduled to transfer to a regular ward. Fang Xiaoran arranged for Zhang Bingxian's wife and daughter to receive nursing training, and Lin Yi advised them to study carefully. During the training session, Yu Lingyun played the edited video of Han Xiao caring for Zhang Bingxian. Zhang Bingxian's wife and daughter were deeply moved, feeling a sense of guilt. They voluntarily withdrew their lawsuit against Han Xiao.

Han Xiao visited Zhang Bingxian in the ward, sincerely apologized to him, and received heartfelt thanks. When Zhang Bingxian's wife and daughter saw Han Xiao diligently taking care of him, they invited Han Xiao to eat buns. Zhou Xiaofeng heard that Han Xiao had previously worked in the operating room, so he reassigned her back to the operating room. Han Xiao expressed her gratitude to Zhou Xiaofeng and Yu Lingyun, and Yu Lingyun advised her sincerely.

Fang Xiaoran shared Zhou Xiaofeng's daily life on Weibo, filled with praises. Chen Yue read the entire Weibo post and began to suspect that Zhou Xiaofeng and Fang Xiaoran might be relatives based on their names.

Fang Xiaoran is well aware of the preferences of each patient in the intensive care unit. She hangs favored decorations and photos by their bedside, stabilizing the patients' emotions. Lin Yi highly praises Fang Xiaoran's approach.

Zhou Xiaofeng invited colleagues from the Cardiac Center for a meal. Lin Yi made an excuse not to attend, and this was Zhou Xiaofeng's first time dining with colleagues. They perceived him as aloof, keeping their distance. Han Xiao publicly expresses gratitude to Zhou Xiaofeng and Fang Xiaoran, thanking them for their help in finding evidence that saved her from being dismissed. Zhou Xiaofeng is grateful for having such good colleagues, publicly stating their cooperation. Everyone enjoys the gathering with laughter and joy.

Lin Yi finishes work and relaxes downstairs with his brother. He sends a congratulatory message to Zhou Xiaofeng, who promptly replies. Lin Yi suddenly receives news that his teacher Cao Nuo has had a stroke and rushes to the hospital. After full efforts from medical personnel, Cao Nuo stabilizes. He expresses concern for a patient he was scheduled to operate on, and Lin Yi advises him to rest.

Fang Xiaoran, in high spirits, drinks a lot. Worried colleagues ask Zhou Xiaofeng to take her home. Fang Xiaoran, delighted, can't stop smiling. This is their first time spending time alone together, and she is proud to have Zhou Xiaofeng as her good brother.

Fang Xiaoran pretends to be unable to walk due to intoxication, and Zhou Xiaofeng takes her home. Seeing Zhou Xiaofeng, Fang Qingzhu is excited and invites him in. Zhou Xiaofeng, unable to refuse, helps Fang Xiaoran into the room. Awkwardly, they discuss recent hospital events, with Fang Xiaoran praising Zhou Xiaofeng. Seeing photos of Fang Qingzhu's younger days, Zhou Xiaofeng recalls her leaving him at the age of five. Despite her explanations, he leaves abruptly, ignoring Fang Xiaoran.

Fang Qingzhu becomes increasingly sad, thinking that if she hadn't divorced, she would have endured a difficult marriage for thirty years. She sends monthly living expenses to Zhou Xiaofeng but is forbidden to meet him by her grandmother. She continues her education while working and sends living expenses quarterly.

On the way home, Zhou Xiaofeng is emotionally conflicted, remembering the last time he saw Fang Qingzhu. She gave him a puzzle and promised to bring him to Dongjiang once her work stabilized. However, she went abroad for three years, and Zhou Xiaofeng, in anger, threw away the puzzle. Fang Qingzhu tells Fang Xiaoran about the past, and Fang Xiaoran encourages her to reconcile with Zhou Xiaofeng. However, Zhou Xiaofeng remains unforgiving and leaves without turning back.

Lin Yi arranges for Cao Nuo's patients to find other doctors for surgery. Only Yan Hui, chairman of Yan Hui Group, insists on waiting for Cao Nuo's recovery before undergoing surgery. Cao Nuo, aware he can't undergo surgery again, recommends Lin Yi to Yan Hui. Yan Hui reluctantly agrees, asking Lin Yi to accompany his wife for a comprehensive examination.

Yu Lingyun clears a room for Yan Hui, and Cui Jing sends Zhou Xiaofeng to welcome Yan Hui. Yan Hui is eager to see Lin Yi, who is currently occupied with surgery, ignoring calls from several important figures in the Dongjiang medical system.

Since Yan Hui was hospitalized, there has been a constant stream of visitors, but Lin Yi has chased them all away. Cui Jing gathers the surgical team for a meeting, and based on the urgency of the patient's condition, Lin Yi schedules the surgery for the day after tomorrow. However, Yan Hui firmly insists on minimally invasive surgery, while Zhou Xiaofeng repeatedly emphasizes that his condition is not suitable for it and recommends cardiovascular surgery. Lin Yi has two more surgeries to prepare for, so he rushes off.

Bai Ji initially wanted to use Yan Hui's surgery to expand the influence of the Cardiology Department. Unexpectedly, Zhou Xiaofeng transferred it to Cardiovascular Surgery, as he believes it's more suitable. Yan Hui, busy with work, receives numerous calls and wants to be the first for surgery. He even offers Lin Yi a big red envelope through his wife, but Lin Yi refuses, insisting on following the order of surgeries.

Lin Yi dismisses the visitors to Yan Hui and, downstairs, his assistant Shu Ze cheers for Yan Hui loudly. Zhou Xiaofeng arrives to stop this, and Shu Ze asks Zhou Xiaofeng to deliver cards and greetings from the staff to Yan Hui. Zhou Xiaofeng persuades them to leave and takes the cards to Yan Hui. Yan Hui complains about the discomfort of the hospital bed, and Zhou Xiaofeng quickly fixes it for him.

Yan Hui has been afraid of needles since childhood and is anxious about the surgery. Zhou Xiaofeng reassures him, advising him not to have psychological burdens as the entire surgery is under anesthesia, causing only mild pain. Lin Yi vents his frustration to Cao Nuo, who advises him not to offend those people who care about Yan Hui.

Chen Yue keeps a close eye on Fang Xiaoran's Weibo, thinking that Fang Xiaoran is dating Zhou Xiaofeng. She comments below, and Fang Xiaoran repeatedly explains that Zhou Xiaofeng is her true big brother, and she is his fan. Chen Yue is curious and searches online, quickly finding out that Fang Xiaoran is the daughter of Fang Qingzhu and Zhou Xiaofeng's running route.

Chen Yue pretends to coincidentally meet Zhou Xiaofeng during her morning jog by the river. She takes the opportunity to inquire about Zhang Yuxi's situation. Zhou Xiaofeng, aware that she is investigating the matter on behalf of Zhang Yuxi's former company, remains tight-lipped. Chen Yue discovers that Zhang Yuxi concealed a history of high blood pressure before joining the company, and Zhou Xiaofeng repeatedly emphasizes that hypertension is unrelated to aortic dissection. Chen Yue argues about not conducting a CT scan before the surgery, asking for Zhou Xiaofeng's WeChat. Zhou Xiaofeng firmly refuses, but Chen Yue introduces a new job opportunity for Zhang Yuxi and requests Zhou Xiaofeng to pass it on. Zhou Xiaofeng agrees to add her as a friend.

After recovering, Zhang Yuxi expresses gratitude to Lin Yi and considers suing her former company for not providing medical insurance to employees. Lin Yi gives Zhang Yuxi his WeChat for easy contact, and Zhang's mother gives Lin Yi a handmade sachet. When patients are discharged, Fang Xiaoran stands on the second-floor balcony to see them off. She and Lin Yi watch Zhang Yuxi leave the hospital, while Tian Lei hides and observes from the side, making Fang Xiaoran feel emotional. Fang Xiaoran reveals that Yan Hui gave red envelopes to the surgical team, and she is sure Lin Yi did not accept them, making Lin Yi feel gratified.

Lin Yi arranges for Yan Hui's preoperative examination. Dr. Liu pushes him in the elevator, and they wait in line at various departments. Tired and hungry, Yan Hui complains to Lin Yi and Zhou Xiaofeng, and Zhou Xiaofeng does his best to calm his emotions. Lin Yi deliberately delays the surgery time, infuriating Yan Hui. Dr. Liu patiently explains, and when Yan Hui learns that he will be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit with twenty other patients after surgery, he worries about the risk of infection and threatens to rent an entire room. Dr. Liu quickly finds an excuse to leave.

Yan Hui, in pain from the potassium solution, calls for a nurse. Dr. Liu dares not face Yan Hui and asks Fang Xiaoran to intervene. Fang Xiaoran patiently listens to Yan Hui's complaints, soothing the pain from the infusion with a warm towel. Yan Hui's emotions gradually stabilize. Lin Yi successfully completes the surgery and sends someone to bring Yan Hui to the operating room.

Yan Hui has been afraid of pain since childhood, even fearing injections. When medical staff come to take him to the operating room, he trembles with fear, tightly holding his wife's hand. Despite her continuous encouragement and cheering, Yan Hui remains extremely frightened. Lin Yi completes the crucial part of the surgery for the previous patient, allowing the assistant to handle the final steps. He then prepares for Yan Hui's surgery.

Restless, Yan Hui anxiously awaits Lin Yi to start the surgery and becomes impatient. Zhou Xiaofeng sends away the last outpatient and quickly arrives at the operating room. Yan Hui vents his frustration to Zhou Xiaofeng, who urges Lin Yi to proceed. Lin Yi calmly finishes the surgery and immediately begins preparations for Yan Hui. At this moment, Deputy Director Wang Xu from the Intensive Care Unit calls urgently, reporting a critical situation with a patient Lin Yi was responsible for. Lin Yi rushes to leave, but Yan Hui, exhausted and hungry since the morning, refuses to let him go and demands immediate surgery. Lin Yi tries to find another doctor for Yan Hui, but he vehemently refuses, even threatening and intimidating Lin Yi. In frustration, Lin Yi leaves, slamming the door.

Cui Jing arrives upon hearing the news, personally overseeing Lin Yi's completion of the drainage for the patient. They go to the operating room together, only to find out that Yan Hui has already left. Soon after, someone calls Cui Jing, demanding an explanation for Yan Hui's surgery. Lin Yi realizes the severity of the problem and offers to apologize to Yan Hui, but it's too late.

Fearful of surgery, Yan Hui wishes for minimally invasive intervention. Xiao Ye recommends Bai Ji, who confidently assures Yan Hui that he can handle the surgery. Upon learning this, Zhou Xiaofeng advises Bai Ji to report to Cui Jing first. Bai Ji, with a plan in mind, wants to finish the surgery first before reporting. Zhou Xiaofeng suggests involving Cardiovascular Surgery, but Bai Ji firmly declines, aiming to use Yan Hui's surgery for publicity in the Cardiology Department.

Zhou Xiaofeng carefully reviews Yan Hui's medical records, and Lin Yi inquires about the patient's condition. Zhou Xiaofeng falsely claims that it's a case from foreign literature. Bai Ji arranges for Yan Hui in the hybrid operating room and sends Zhou Xiaofeng to escort him. During the surgery, Bai Ji, as the lead surgeon, accidentally punctures a blood vessel with a guidewire, causing Yan Hui's blood pressure to drop sharply. Ignoring Zhou Xiaofeng's advice, Bai Ji continues the surgery, but both attempts to repair the damage fail. Yan Hui's heartbeat accelerates, blood pressure plummets, and Bai Ji panics. Zhou Xiaofeng secretly calls Fang Xiaoran to bring an echocardiography machine to the Chest Pain Center.

Seeing an echocardiography machine in the Chest Pain Center, Fang Xiaoran immediately realizes the severity of the situation. She hurries to the operating room and witnesses Bai Ji performing minimally invasive surgery on Yan Hui. Despite Zhou Xiaofeng's persistent persuasion, Bai Ji only agrees to seek assistance from Cardiovascular Surgery after realizing the gravity of the situation. Fang Xiaoran urgently seeks help from Lin Yi, who arrives without hesitation. Together with the medical staff, they make relentless efforts and successfully complete the surgery.

Afterwards, Cui Jing severely scolds Bai Ji, reminding him not to pursue quick success and immediate benefits, emphasizing the responsibilities of being a doctor. Bai Ji deeply regrets his actions. Yan Hui finally regains consciousness, but Fang Xiaoran notices that he hasn't urinated. She quickly calls Lin Yi, who performs relevant checks and discovers fluid accumulation in Yan Hui's pericardium. Wang Xu calls to truthfully report the situation to the hospital leadership.

Jiang Junling advises Lin Yi to consider the overall situation and not reveal the failure of Bai Ji's surgery. Bai Ji desperately tries to shift blame, insisting that Yan Hui's pericardial effusion is unrelated to his intervention surgery. Fang Xiaoran publicly raises doubts about this claim.
