"The child experiences cyanosis and shortness of breath at least 5 to 6 times a day due to asthma. The doctor has taught us how to provide emergency relief for the child and advised us to have the surgery before heart failure. Please help save the child!
Muhammad Ziyad bin Mohamad Nizar from Permatang Pauh, Penang, is a premature baby. After birth, he was immediately placed in an incubator. The baby exhibited cyanosis and shortness of breath throughout the body. Diagnosis revealed cyanotic congenital heart disease, specifically a heart defect and narrowed blood vessels. After 57 days of observation in the incubator, he was allowed to leave the hospital. However, surgery for his heart condition is required, and he needs to weigh 10 kilograms for the procedure.
Now, at 14 months old, the child experiences cyanosis and oxygen deficiency every time he cries or becomes active. In recent regular check-ups, the doctor informed the parents that the child needs surgery as soon as possible, or the lack of oxygen may lead to fatality. The desperate parents are seeking assistance for the RM80,000 surgery cost.
【After the mother became pregnant, she developed severe gestational diabetes, requiring three insulin injections daily to control blood sugar. The baby was born prematurely and had to stay in the hospital. The parents, who had eagerly anticipated pregnancy and childbirth, are now worried about the child's health】
Muhammad Ziyad's mother discovered she had severe diabetes during pregnancy, requiring three insulin injections and medication daily to control blood sugar. At 7 months of pregnancy, due to the rupture of amniotic fluid, she was sent to the hospital. After receiving a lung-strengthening injection from the doctor, she successfully gave birth the next day, and the premature baby, weighing 1.4 kilograms, was immediately placed in an incubator.
The baby exhibited cyanosis and wheezing symptoms while in the incubator. After thorough examination, doctors confirmed that the baby had Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). At that time, the condition was managed with medication, and surgery was deemed suitable only when the baby reached a weight of 10 kilograms. After spending 57 days in the incubator, the baby was allowed to leave with a weight of 2.24 kilograms.
As the baby grew, he frequently experienced cyanosis symptoms. Every time he cried or became overly excited, his lips and nails would turn cyanotic, occurring an average of 5 to 6 times a day. In case of cyanosis, parents had to curl the baby's body to improve oxygen supply to the entire body. During sleep, the baby experienced cyanosis due to oxygen deficiency, and parents were taught by the doctor how to handle the situation to save the baby's life.
In January of this year, the baby's condition worsened, experiencing vomiting when eating porridge, restricting the diet to only milk. Daily occurrences of cyanosis and increasing frequency of cyanotic seizures impacted the baby's weight and led to slow growth. During a regular check-up, the doctor recommended referral to a specialized hospital for surgery. However, the required surgery cost is a staggering RM80,000, leaving the helpless parents in distress.
