Doctors Keep Septuplets Under Close Watch

July 15, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A second baby among the nation's latest septuplets was taken off a ventilator, with medical teams continuing to keep all under a close watch since their birth Thursday.

The two still had the help of tubing and equipment that applies air pressure to their airways to prevent the loss of breathing during sleep.

The other five remained on ventilators to help them breathe.

Georgetown University Hospital has received $4,500 in donations on behalf of the babies.
