1 doctor agrees
In brief: High risk/variable
Of the several forms of oi the primary plan should be surgical delivery at a facility capable of treating or stabilizing for transport a child with respiratory insufficiency.
The more severe forms often have respiratory distress at birth & may have poor lung capacity. Lesser forms do well in the newborn period but require personnel that understand their special need for monitoring & handeling.
