Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


What is the expected duration of nursery stay for my newborn daughter who passed stools inside the womb? She currently exhibits fast breathing. Doctor, could you please inform me if there are any serious complications associated with this situation?



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Your daughter respiratory distress could be a result of meconium aspiration syndrome. She will require respiratory support until her lungs improve, which typically takes around 2-4 days. If there is significant lung damage, it may take weeks to fully resolve. The duration of recovery depends on the extent of lung involvement in your daughter case.
