CASE STUDIES

Bijali Dalvi and her baby get a new lease of life through the efforts of SRH and NICU

 

Bijali Dalvi, an expectant mother, was bitten by a Russell’s viper, one of the world’s most venomous snakes. The timely administering of an anti-dote saved Bijali’s life, but led to complications for her unborn baby. The next day itself, her infant was prematurely delivered with an extremely low birth weight of 1.75 kgs. When the baby did not cry and did not start breathing, it was rushed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital.
The parents, fearing their inability to cover high hospital bills, were relieved when the hospital readily agreed to provide treatment absolutely free. The baby was diagnosed with venom toxicity and was immediately given an anti-venom injection. The child was kept at the NICU for a period of 26 days. On discharge, the baby was in good health, ready to begin her journey of life.

 

TESTIMONIALS

“Not only the medical services but also quality surgical services being offered to a one day old newborn is something which has to be seen to be believed. The dedication, discipline, devotion and empathy which your staff demonstrates and the selfless services offered to the most marginalised and vulnerable members of the society without any economic returns or expectation is something which needs to emulated by other organisations. As a doctor I must appreciate the holistic approach to all the health problems under one roof at your hospital.

As a part of the National initiative to focus beyond survival for a cognitive vibrant India, your hospital is quite ahead in this initiative. Your early intervention centre is a mile stone in this area. The way you have added the various components of development in your early intervention centre, starting from the birth of a child, especially the vision component which is responsible for 40% brain development requires a huge appreciation and applause. Most of the medical colleges both in India and internationally have even not started thinking in this area of cognitive development, as this is left to school, not appreciating that 90% of the Brain is formed by the age of three years, hence the most critical period of human development does not get due attention.”

REPORTS

Shrimad Rajchandra Child Malnutrition Centre Revitalises an Infant Life

Rajesh, a seven-month-old infant, from Moti Palsan village near Dharampur, had developed severe problems due to malnutrition. Unlike average infants of his age who normally weigh 5 kgs, Rajesh weighed only 1.7 kgs! Rajesh displayed symptoms of faltering growth and neurodevelopmental delay, even unable to hold his neck up. Additionally, he also suffered from mild hydrocephalus, a condition where one has an abnormally large head size. He was admitted to Shrimad Rajchandra Malnutrition Treatment Centre. Since he was severely anaemic and unable to take oral feeds, he was initiated on injectable antibiotics, intravenous fluids and a blood transfusion. A highly skilled team of specialists, including a paediatrician, physiotherapist and paediatric neurologist, monitored Rajesh’s recovery. After a few days, Rajesh started accepting special feeds for malnourished children. After 45 days in critical care, Rajesh’s weight increased to 2.9 kgs ....
