A Hug that helped change medicine. Video Un abrazo milagroso.
In 1995, a baby was saved by the hug of her sibling. CNN's Lisa Sylvester reports on a twin bond that has lasted.
A miraculous story happened in Western, Massachusetts, United States, October 17, 1995, where a pair of twins who were born prematurely for 12 weeks, and even each weighing less than 1 kilo, by the way they survived it was really shocking.
Paul Jackson, father of two, knew of complications, and even asserts that the hospital NICU, "the nurses were very honest with me, they told me the next three days would determine to live or not."
When they were just 3 weeks of life, one began to have trouble breathing, his heart began to pump too fast and her oxygen level fell precipitously, and even began to put in a blue tone.
One of the nurses had the idea of bringing them together, removing them from their incubators and put them next to each other in one incubator, something that had never been done. What happened next was truly shocking.
Kyrie Jackson, healthy sister, put his arm over the back of the sick twin, Brielle Jackson, hugging her. This surprising and miraculously made Brielle levels were stabilized, saving his life.
This happened 17 years ago, and now, the twins have grown, healthy and normal life, but what they achieved that day changed the way in which the processes are handled at this hospital and throughout the United States even, and from that moment each having problems with premature babies, from 22 weeks of gestation, physical contact between infants and their mothers, or in the case of twins together, calling this "Kangaroo Care" are since then promoted.
