Improving Again

1/6/08 Skyla is getting better by the day. She does still have lots of secretions though. Other than that, there are no more temperatures and major desats. She does desat now and then but that is because she is needing a suction. She did have a canula in her hand but was taken out yesterday as it was leaking and her hand swelled up. She is now on oral antibiotics though her gastrastomy tube in her belly. They plan on stopping them on tuesday. Her vent settings are O2 30, peep 6, rate 12 and pc above peep 8. We are hoping to get her off the rate soon which will then mean she is on cpap pressure support. We weighed her the other day and she is now 5.2kg, 11.44 pounds. She is putting on weight but not as quick as we would have liked but at least she is moving forward. She is now on 28mls p/hr of elecare. Up from 26mls p/hr.
