The extreme preterm baby who was born at 24 week with 510 gram weight is now an active normal infant. Baby, Nafeesuthul Misriya, daughter of Smt Haseena, from Karunagappally, was born on 10 November 2018 at the Lifeline Super Speciality Hospital, Adoor, which offers tertiary care for the Mother and the New-born at par with international standards.
Dr Binu Govind, Consultant Neonatologist and Head of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the Hospital (who was trained in CMC Vellore and worked as Assistant professor there) along with a team of doctors who are extensively trained in neonatal care, took care of the baby. Baby Nafeesuthul Misriya, now of above five months, is healthy and does not have any major morbidity of prematurity. Since the baby was born 16 weeks before full term, she was given ventilator support and provided best possible care in the NICU.
