Thanks to our wonderful pediatrician, Getty now has two new medical machines:
- Cough Assist Machine: This has a face-mask with a tube. The machine blows air quickly into her lungs and quickly sucks the air back out again, simulating a cough. Since her natural cough is weak, the machine helps get any gunk out of her lungs just like a normal cough would do. It also helps strengthen her lungs. We’ll use it a couple of times a day.
- Suction Machine: This is used to suction spit or other gunk (“secretions”) out of Getty’s mouth so she doesn’t accidentally swallow it into her lungs.
Here’s to healthy lungs!
