This machine is used to monitor your baby's heart rate and breathing amongst many other things. The monitor has an audible alarm to alert the staff to any inconsistencies in any of the parameters we are watching. All babies in the unit are monitored 24 hours a day.
Some babies, both those born prematurely & full-term, need special help to adjust to their new lives. They need different kinds of care than is normally given. Your doctor asked that your baby be admitted to the Brandon Intensive Care Nursery for this special care.
