Hello friends on TC

This has absolutely "nothing" to do with Turkey in any way. I am posting this because it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen in my life. It brings tears to your eyes while you smile ! If you love music, go make yourself a tea or coffee or pour that glass of wine, sit back and watch this 50 minute programme (in 5 parts).

Enjoy and be amazed

Actually, it says that they did not have the equipment to monitor the amount of oxygen that was administered. It probably was not in use in 1980. Not related to malpractice more like no equipment available in those years.

That is very highly unlikely. I couldn't find the exact information about when monitors where introduced, but here's some info about ventilators. Of course they must have had a monitoring system.

"The iron lung, also known as the Drinker and Shaw tank, was developed in 1929 and was one of the first negative-pressure machines used for long-term ventilation. It was refined and used in the 20th century largely as a result of the polio epidemic that struck the world in the 1950s."

I think it could be the fact that he was born at 26 weeks and in 1980, extremely few babies even survived that alone ! An iron lung, I assume, could not be used on a baby that is smaller than a adult human hand and weighing only 1.5 pounds. Not only that, an iron mask is a concealed iron chamber with the body inside, and the head exposed to the outside air with a seal around the neck. This baby was wired up to multiple drips, machines and monitors that you would not be able to access in an iron lung. An iron lung also does not feed oxygen directly into the lungs, patients breathe on the their own accord. A 26 week premature baby would not survive even if it could use an iron lung. I am not a doctor, but having read the iron lung info, it seems logically not possible.

I don't think that this can be related to malpractice and one must consider than technology that has advanced in 28 years. Things were seriously different back then.
