The AMRI Hospitals Bhubaneswar’s NICU team saved a 700-gram premature baby with multiple problems and issues.

A woman from Puri had delivered the girl child just 25 weeks after her pregnancy in June. After the conceiving baby, the parents were having their regular checkups with Dr Monica Gupta, Gynaecolgist, AMRI Hospitals. When the premature delivery happened, the desperate parents, with an aim of saving the neonate, approached the hospital’s Department of Paediatric & Neonatology.

The baby received a thorough treatment under the care of Dr Janaki Ballav Pradhan, Dr Monica Gupta and the NICU team. "The baby was extremely small and had all the complications of prematurity. There were many continuous challenges during the treatment. She received three doses of surfactant on ventilator support for one month. After that when she developed pneumonia and sepsis, we almost lost hope, but the baby was a fighter. We were able to overcome the issues. She is now healthy and neurologically normal,” said Dr Pradhan and Dr Gupta.
