Day 6 of Melit’s preparation for going home


Dr. Yacapin ordered to remove the stitches in Melit’s trache tube and gave us instructions on how to change the dressing.

Dr. Casino became ambitious and ordered a new round of tests, this time Melit breathing without oxygen supply. Today, she failed as her O2 saturation went down within five minutes after removing the T-piece.

Dr. Barba gave a new set of range of motion exercises to be done at home.
