10/17/06 - NICU Day #15

Nurses: Jodi, Rachel
  • Today, Daniel is doing better. His FiO2 is down to 40% this evening after not being able to tolerate anything other than 100% as late as this morning. The NICU started a little Ativan and increased the Fentanyl because he does much better when he is sedated.
  • His CXR is unchanged to slightly worse. The PIE is more pronounced. However, the lungs will take a little while to heal so the improved clinical picture is heartening.
  • PO feeds by OG tube might start tomorrow.
