Medical Report Muaz


Baby Muaz was born by spontaneous vaginal delivery at 26+6 gestational weeks. Mother had no signs of intraamnial infection, she was covered by antibiotic shortly before delivery, and she received 1 dose of antenatal steroids. Baby boy was born by head presentation, he was appropriate for gestational age. He was intubated in the delivery room and mechanical ventilation was started. He was admitted to NICU.

1 dose of surfactant was given, the boy was weaned from ventilation to NIPPV/nCPAP. We continued with nCPAP for the next 7 days. He was on intermittent NCPAP during 2nd and 3rd week of life for apnea of maturity.

He had significant persistent ductus arteriosus(PDA). The PDA was ligated on 50th day of life. He was intubated and ventilated during perioperative period. After extubation(day 4 post surgery) he developed progressive dyspnea and stridor(both expiratory and  inspiratory) and mechanical ventilation was needed for another day. He was successfully extubated after 7-day course of Hydrocortison. After day 56 of life he required no respiratory support, stridor and dyspnea persistent during feed. Chest X-rays shows moderate bronchopulmonal dysplasia, combined inhaled bronchodilator and steroid therapy had no effect on stridor and dyspnea. Bronchoscopy showed normal airway anatomy and oedematousus arytenoids, the probable reason for stridor.

Echocardiography post surgery showed accelerated flow on LPA, reason for persistent systolic murmur 2/6.

There was no infectious complication during stay in our hospital.

Muaz receive enteral feeding with human breast milk from day 1 of life, he got to full enteral feeding on day 8 of life. Parental nutrition was needed for 7 days. The boy has been thriving.

2 blood transfusion were applied(6/7/2010 and 11/8/2010). Hyperbilirubinemia was treated with phototherapy.

Upon discharged baby Muaz tolerates bottle feeds by breast milk and Nutrilon 0 Nenatal. He has normal breathing, except for occasional mild stridor and dyspnea rarely-without desaturations. The systolic murmur persists.

    Salam, masya-Allah syukur alhamdulillah, maha suci Allah yang telah mempermudahkan antum. Just nak share, babies kat Notts (or kat mana-mana in fact), kalau born at 26+6 weeks gestation, boleh dapat lebih banyak complications apart from yang Muaz hadapi. So, abu dan ummu Muaz, bersyukur laa pada Allah banyak-banyak atas anugerah-Nya (tak cakap pun insya-Allah antum buat punya)…. just nak share yang babies macam tu kekadang can be more complicated. Berdoalah banyak-banyak agar Muaz terdidik dengan didikan yang sempurna, semoga menjadi hamba Allah yang beriman dan beramal soleh. Amin.
