After undergoing omphalocele surgery, a baby should be taken care of properly to ensure quick healing and to prevent further infections or other medical problems.
After surgery, the baby may need to stay in the intensive care unit to keep the baby warm until he or she reaches the right temperature. For a while, mechanical ventilation will be used to help the baby breathe normally during the recovery process. Feeding the baby with the use of a nasogastric tube should take place when his bowel movement is already normal. The tube will also serve as a medium for other medicines he or she needs while recovering.
If you think your baby developed omphalocele due to the use of Zoloft while pregnant, you may be able to seek compensation from the manufacturer. Contact the legal team from Williams Kherkher at (888) 220-0640 to learn more about your legal options and how you might be compensated.
