Quoting BuzyMommy:" Do you mind if I ask how long was your baby on the oscilator, vent and cpap? My son is 7 weeks now, born ... [snip!] ... steroids and was extubated yesterday. He had his PDA ligation a week ago. Im sorry if I am being forward, I just am worried."
It's okay, you can always ask.
She was on vent for a total of 3 weeks maybe. She did a few days at first, then went to canula. However, she had a pulmonary hemorrhage from the PDA and went on the oscilator for about a week until her surgery. Then back to the vent for maybe a week after the surgery. She was only on the cpap for a matter of a few hours, then back to the canula. She came home on o2 and an apnea monitor.
