Statement from Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center regarding Baby Joseph

 

Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center

   
  Tuesday, March 15, 2011

   
 

Joseph Maraachli was safely transported Sunday night from a hospital in London, Ontario, arriving in St. Louis in serious but stable condition.  He is currently under evaluation by the medical team of SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center/Saint Louis University School of Medicine. The team includes a pulmonologist, neurologists, ENT surgeons, a geneticist and critical care specialists.

Joseph remains ventilated for breathing assistance. Medical evaluation is continuing.  Medical team leader Dr. Robert Wilmott, Chief of Pediatrics at SSM Cardinal Glennon and Saint Louis University School of Medicine, says Joseph likely will have a tracheotomy performed by the end of this week to facilitate his transition to a skilled nursing facility.

A tracheotomy is a surgical procedure to create an opening into the airway through an incision in the neck. The trach tube allows for suction of fluid out of the lungs, creates a safe and stable way to use a mechanical ventilator, and is more comfortable for the child. 

"We are pleased to be able to assist the family in this very challenging time,” Dr. Wilmott says.
