The father gives CPR to save his baby on the way to the hospital to save him
When Shivansh, a 30-day-old baby, struggled to breathe at home and became blue and cold, his father, who had just arrived from the office at night, noticed and, without losing time, began to give. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and mouth-to-mouth breathing on the road while rushing to the maternity hospital. The CPR skills used by Mr. Snehshankar (infant father) helped the baby to get to the hospital in Wagholi to Kharadi in a stable condition that took him about 30 minutes due to poor road conditions. Emergency team led by Dr. Tushar Parikh, Head of the Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology, Dr. Mubashir Shah, Neonatologist Consultant and Dr. Sachin Bhise, Consultant Pediatrician saved the baby from "Almost Miss" called as Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
Dr. Mubashir Shah, Neonatal Consultant at Motherhood Hospital, said: "The one-month-old baby was taken to the emergency room at Motherhood Hospital, Kharadi, by his parents in the middle of the night at 3 a.m. We noticed that the baby had turned blue and was not breathing, his heart rate was low and his pulse was very weak. Resuscitation measures were started immediately to help the baby breathe along with chest compression to help his heart pump blood. He was effectively resuscitated and placed on a ventilator to support breathing and medications to support the cardiovascular system and improve blood pressure. "
"While extracting the story, the father, Mr. Snehshankar Jha, discovered that the baby was not breathing when he returned from his position at 1 am during the night. The parents tried to wake him up and discovered that he had turned blue and cold. They began to breathe mouth to mouth at home and continued on the road while rushing to get to the hospital. On the way we found a hospital, but the doctors were not available, so we moved in search of a hospital, where we found this new maternity hospital that has just begun and, fortunately, a doctor available, who took immediate action without waste time to save Shrivansh. "There was no other story like fever, shortness of breath, rapid breathing or vomiting immediately before this life-threatening event, apart from the fact that he was born premature with low birth weight in one of Pune's hospitals," said Dr. Shah
Dr. Tushar Parikh, Head of the Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology at the Maternity Hospital, said: "All the credit is for her father, who made the right decision and gave CPR to her baby who struggled to breathe until she reaches the hospital in a stable condition. After which, the medical team took over the challenging case. Heart failure, kidney damage, bleeding problems and seizures are consequences of the hypoxic (lack of oxygen) in the body, as seen in this baby. "Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) English) is a condition in which babies die without any apparent cause We suspected SID (Sudden Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) in this baby The proper, efficient and timely administration of our team of doctors saved this baby. "
Dr. Parikh further recommends that babies fall asleep on their backs (and not upside down or sideways) to reduce the incidence of SIDS. Alcohol consumption by parents and maternal smoking are related to SIDS. However, no such risk factors were presented in this case. In addition, breastfeeding protects against SIDS.
Baby was administered at the level 3 high-tech neonatal ICU at the maternity hospital. After 8 hours of admission, the baby developed seizures and was managed with anticonvulsant medications. The ventilator support was removed after 3 days and managed with non-invasive ventilation for another 2 days. To meet their nutritional needs, initially intravenous dextrose was administered and tube feeding was started from day 3 of admission, once their blood pressure and heart rate were stabilized. Oral feeding began on the fifth day of admission with adequate suction and normal swallowing.
Dr. Sachin Bhise, pediatric consultant at Motherhood Hospital says: "These babies also need long-term follow-up to monitor growth and especially development."
Mr. Snehshankar Jha, father of the child said: "It was a miracle done by the doctors and staff of Motherhood Hospital." "The positive attitude and empathy of the doctor has saved our baby, the doctors constantly update us on the improvement of our baby, and I thank Motherhood Hospital for giving a new life to my baby."
"At Motherhood Hospital, we have a state-of-the-art infrastructure that includes the neonatal ICU level III, the best neonatal and pediatric equipment and high-end equipment to face any neonatal or pediatric emergency. High-risk pregnancies, such as those complicated by high blood pressure, diabetes, premature labor, surgical problems in newborns, can be effectively managed and managed by a team of gynecologists and high-level obstetricians at the Maternity Hospital.
