Child with leukemia, on ventilator for low heart rate, has swollen stomach, blue hands and feet, red ring on belly button even after removal of IV's and tubes. Cause and remedy?
My friends son is 5 and has luekemia. He had pneumonia and was put in the hospital and his heart rate is very low. His lungs have cleared up but he is still on the ventilator his heart rate is in the 30 s his stomach is really swollen his hands and feet are blue and he has a red ring around his belly button. The drs can t figure out what is wrong. All tubes and IVs have been removed except the ventilator. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
