Oliver Brown was born seven weeks early at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan, weighing just 4lbs 4oz. Oliver spent his first two days in the Intensive Care Unit where he needed a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine to help him breathe, after which he was transferred to the High Dependency Unit. For a while he was also in an incubator, as his temperature kept dropping and he was jaundiced.

For a total of three weeks, Oliver received excellent round-the-clock neo natal care at the hospital. He’s now growing up to be a healthy, happy little boy thanks to the incredible support he received as a newborn baby.

Oliver’s mum Louisa says: “The nursing staff were absolutely brilliant. I couldn’t praise the whole unit enough. I’m diabetic and they even took care of me when I had a hypo one day. Thank you to all the staff and thank you to MedEquip4Kids for the equipment you have funded in Wigan over the years.”

“During winter months our admissions of children with respiratory conditions increase, so these saturation monitors are vital to us being able to safely monitor children. They will allow us to monitor more children both continuously through their stay with us and at intermittent times during their visit. Staff will find the additional units make their jobs easier.”
