They went down on her rate today from 30bpm to 25bpm. Brinson has been sleepy today....so we will see how she does on the new setting. The plan is keep going down and see if she can go to CPAP. Brinson is consistently breathing over the vent. That is primary reason they have been able to go down. Her next blood gas is Thursday.
The tests came back on her heart. These are done on all babies with oxygen over 60 days to ensure the heart is not getting over worked....etc. Brin has a murmur of the heart ( pulmonary bronchial stenosis (PBS)). They said it was nothing to worry about. And she also has Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) which is something they will watch. The defect sounds scary, but really unless there is symptoms it is nothing to worry about and often does resolve itself.
BTW her ROP is still negative. She has another eye test next week.
