Whether your baby's respiratory system is strong, or needs a little more development, rest assured because Angelcare breathing movement monitors have been designed to alert you only if no movement is detected after 20 seconds.
Respiratory system abnormalities can sometimes only be detected once baby is born. When everything looks normal at the ultrasounds during the pregnancy, and when the delivery goes smoothly, parents cannot imagine that their newborn already has a breathing disorder.
The mother and father of little Florence know unfortunately too well that a catastrophic situation caused by an undiagnosed infant health condition can occur suddenly. Here is their testimonial.
One night, at three weeks young, Florence was put to sleep in her crib, following all safe sleep guidelines. Two hours into her sleep, the Angelcare breathing movement monitor alarm sounded; our little girl lay unconscious and required cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to save her.
In hospital, it was deemed that Florence had an infection and once treated she would be okay and this would not happen again. Five weeks later, at two months young, the worst had happened again.
The alarm system on the Angelcare breathing movement monitor had sounded, recognizing that Florence had not taken a breath for 20 seconds, and she required CPR again.
After a week of hospitalization, Florence was diagnosed with Central Sleep Apnea and Periodic Breathing. Florence now has oxygen delivered via nasal prongs to help her breathe until she gets strong enough not to require the added assistance.
Without the breathing movement monitor we would not have been alerted and woken by the alarms and our little princess would have passed.
The monitor contributed to saving our daughter and for that we are forever grateful.
