6: Isaac was admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) an hour after birth. He was having difficulty breathing. He had to be put on a nasal CPAP machine. He was on it for 10 hours then was weaned to a blended flow nasal cannula. | He was in the NICU for a total of 6 days. While he was in the NICU he received antibiotics, TPN, and oxygen. He also required an NG Tube until he could eat again. He had a lot of amazing nurses, respiratory therapists, and doctors taking care of him.
