Science and technology have been reaching the height of turning impossible to possible. There remains hardly any problem which doesn’t have any solution. With the advancement in technology, also the medicine has come a long way. The last example recently came out when doctors saved a pregnant woman and her newly born child.
The child Manushi became Asia’s smallest born baby weighing only 400 grams and 8.6 inches in length. Her low weight and critical condition made the doctors and parent lose their hope but the girl survived. The miracle happened that surprised everyone.
The girl child name is Manushi and she was born to a 48-year-old woman Seeta in Udaipur, Rajasthan. In June 2017, Seeta had undergone an emergency premature C-section. She was kept in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for six months and now she is a healthy infant.
As per the report of The Hindu, neonatologist Sunil Janged who was leading the team of doctors said:
TO SALVAGE A BABY OF THIS SIZE WAS A CHALLENGING TASK. THERE IS NO REPORTED SURVIVAL OF A NEWBORN WEIGHING THIS SMALL IN THE INDIAN SUB-CONTINENT.”
Added Dr. Sunil Janged:
THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE FOR OUR TEAM WAS TO PREVENT ANY INFECTION TO HER AND OUR TEAM MANAGED IT VERY WELL.”
Also, the doctor said:
“She was struggling to breathe, so was immediately put on advanced respiratory support ventilator to expand her tiny, immature lungs. We had to start the baby on total parenteral nutrition, which basically means giving all the essential nutrients such as amino acids, carbohydrates, minerals and multivitamins directly into blood circulation.”
