Gurgaon: At the current rate of allegations raging against corporate hospitals, the bills for the rare treatment and three months hospital stay of the severely preterm baby girl would have been a bomb.
But the baby girl of a migrant worker availed it completely free! At 23 weeks, she also becomes the youngest child to survive heart surgery for a congenital heart defect.
The premature baby girl was born at 23 weeks, which in itself is a deathly condition, with a rare heart condition called Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) that would send too much blood into the lungs and make it impossible for her to breathe. That she got a new lease of life in an area infamous for female feticide and a skewed sex also makes this a rare event.
The frail girl also showed an extraordinary fighting spirit. She valiantly battled her condition for the past 3 months at Artemis. Baby Anandita (name changed) was extremely underweight, about 500, equal to the size of our palm. Right after birth, she struggled to breathe and had to be connected to a ventilator to keep her alive. She needed a heart surgery promptly to survive.
Her parents being migrant workers, who live off their daily wages, could not afford such a surgery along with months of specialized care- that was necessary to keep Anandita alive. The hospital management came forward to show utmost generosity and decided to bear the complete cost of surgery, medicines as well as hospitalization.
