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.”

“The AccuVein AV400 is going to be such a useful addition to our equipment as it will make it easier to see the small veins and thereby make the process a lot gentler on our little patients.”
