Whether your baby’s respiratory system is strong, or it needs a little more development, rest assured because the Angelcare breathing movement monitors have been designed to alert you if no movement is detected for 20 seconds.
Respiratory system abnormalities can sometimes only be detected once a baby is born. When everything looks normal at the ultrasounds during the pregnancy, and when the delivery goes smoothly, parents could not imagine that their newborn could possibly have a breathing disorder. The mother and father of little Florence know all too how devastating an undiagnosed infant health condition can be. Here is their testimonial.
One night, at three weeks old, Florence was put to sleep in her crib, following all safe sleep guidelines. Two hours into her sleep, the Angelcare breathing movement monitor alarm sounded; and this little infant lay unconscious in her crib. She required CPR to save her life as she had stopped breathing. In hospital, it was deemed that Florence had an infection and once treated she would be okay and this would not happen again. Five weeks later, at two months old, the worst happened again. The alarm system on the Angelcare breathing movement monitor sounded once again, alerting her parents that Florence had not taken a breath for 20 seconds, and she required CPR again. After a week of hospitalisation, Florence was diagnosed with Central Sleep Apnoea and Periodic Breathing. Florence now has oxygen delivered via nasal prongs to help her breathe until she gets strong enough not to require the added assistance.Without the breathing movement monitor Florence’s parents would not have been alerted and woken by the alarms, and their little princess would have died. The monitor contributed to saving their daughter’s life and for that they are forever grateful.
Whether your baby’s respiratory system is strong or it needs a little more development, rest assured because the Angelcare breathing movement monitors have been designed to alert you only if no movement is detected after 20 seconds. If you have any concerns about your child’s sleep cycle, then bring the device to your next paediatrician appointment to show your child’s doctor the data.
