Heart Murmur and Apnea – Premature Infant
My daughter Veronica was born seven weeks premature and although she was able to come home she was put on an apnea (apnea is a period of time during which breathing stops or is markedly reduced) monitor. Shortly after being discharged from the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit ) I had to rush her back to the emergency room because she began having apnea episodes. She was diagnosed with RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) and a heart murmur.
When she was well enough to return home, I brought her to Dr. Horning for her first adjustment. She has had no apnea episodes since. Dr. Horning also diagnosed her allergy to formula which was causing rectal bleeding. The emergency room doctors wanted to operate on her but because of Dr. Horning she was spared an unnecessary surgery and just put on hypoallergenic formula.
Thanks again Doc!
