TT sextuplets will need ‘sophisticated’ care
Tuesday, March 5 2013
THE sextuplets born at the Mt Hope Women’s Hospital will need a “sophisticated” level of support in their treatment. This is the view of Neonatologist Dr Petronella Manning-Alleyne. Although she was not involved in the case, she was asked to give her views on the births, given her vast experience in treating premature newborns while working as a Neonatologist in the public health sector.
(Neonatology is a sub specialty of paediatrics that consists of the medical care of newborn infants, especially the ill or premature newborn infants.) Manning-Alleyne said since the six babies all spent the same amount of time in the womb their outcomes would be the same. She described the babies as “tiny” since their birth weight was just over one pound.
