Kaelan's Story

Kaelan Fairfax-Price was born almost 16 weeks early, weighing just 1lb 10oz, at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. He was transferred for further treatment to the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Royal Preston Hospital the same day. Due to his extreme prematurity, Kaelan required help with his breathing first from a ventilator, then through oxygen via a mask (CPAP). Finally he was treated using a vapotherm: a high flow oxygen therapy breathing support system.

Kaelan’s mother Stacey says: “Kaelan has been much happier since being nursed on the vapotherm – his observations are stable and he seems very comfortable”.

MedEquip4Kids has donated four vapotherms to the unit. Matron Jo Smith says: “The vapotherm is a non-invasive form of breathing support delivering humidified oxygen to babies. It also reduces the risk of pressure damage to the delicate preterm skin, which can be a risk with other breathing support systems.”
