Video & Update

I just wanted to share a video we just took up in the NICU. We found out his blood work was slowly going in the wrong direction. (For those of you medical, his CO2 on his ABG was getting pretty critical and making him 7.10)
So they made the decision to put him in the HFV, so he is now breathing over 400 times a minute. This should help protect his lungs believe it or not. Hopefully he isn't on it long.
