England’s Healthcare 23 Week Old Baby Dead

Jayden

HUNDREDS of premature babies born in Britain are dying unnecessarily

“US, Sweden and Australia, have published data showing survival figures of 30%-60% at 23 weeks and 40%-70% at 24 weeks. If the average outcome figures in the UK are so much worse, we must ask the question, why?”


Fate was not on the side of baby boy Jaden.  He was born 2 days too early to qualify for medical care from Britain’s doctors.  He was able to kick, move his arms, turn over and had a strong heart beat yet doctor’s offered him no aid . To do so would break the rules of GP’s socialized health care . Two hours later little Jayden died. We love you Jayden and we won’t forget you.

  1. Particularly if you simply have small businesses monthly pension for you to top up your small express pension…. Every aspect of beginning a company in middle age. This individual life inside n. rEgarding great britain along with …emerytura w anglii

  2. We have a beautiful little baby girl called Nadeen born on the 2nd May 2012 at the gestation of 23 weeks + 1 day the youngest baby to survive at Wexham Park Hospital, Slough. She was immediately transferred to Portsmouth and we lived there for ten weeks while she grew from a birth weight of 590 grams to 1.3kg. We were then transferred back to Slough where over the last nine weeks she has doubled her weight and grown to 2.64kg.

    Nadeen is now terefore 23 weeks + 19 weeks but has had two recent boughts of Apnea. Apnea is a term for the absence of breathing for more than 20 seconds. It can occur in full-term babies, but is more common in premature babies. The more premature the baby, the greater the chances that apnea will occur.

    Apnea may be followed by bradycardia – a decreased heart rate. When breathing slows, the heart rate also slows. A common term for apnea with bradycardia is “As and Bs.” The last one was last night at home after being discharged two days ago from hospital. This was very scary as I had to administer CPR because she went completely blue for nearly a minute and when the ambulance arrived we were taken to A&E and are now back in Hospital once again. A couple of hours later she appears to be completely fine.

    However, my greatest fear was conveyed to me today by the specialist eye consultant C K Patel at John Radcliffe, Oxford. Who advised that the laser surgery she had three weeks ago has not worked and as a consequence she needs major surgery next week.

    We pray to God that she makes it through this most testing time as we both LOVE HER so VERY VERY MUCH.

  3. Bless you. I will pray for your baby girl, Nadeen. My husband has sleep apnea. He holds his breath while sleeping. It’s very prevalent in adults. He has never come close to death though, that I know of. I hold my breath when I am stressed or have anxiety. It stops when I don’t. Do you have an alarm for her when she quits breathing?

  4. Thank you and yes we have an Apnea alarm but I had stupidly disconnected on the day but it will be always from now on
