Oxyelite pro is used as a fat burner ;the ingredients contained are partly herbal and partly chemical.During surgery it is important that there is no unnecessary medicine or drug is taken which can have a interaction in a patients body also it is important that there is no alteration in metabolism of the body so it is necessary that you should stop taking oxyelite pro at least a week before surgery.

My daughter was diagnosed with transient tachypnea 6 days ago after birth. Another x ray today revealed no improvement with reduction of fluid on lungs and a drop in saturated oxygen was observed. Doctors have put her back on oxygen and told me another week to clear. This seems a very long time for TTN to be a problem.....? What else could be issue?

My niece has been hospitalized since yesterday because she was throwing up blood and she got 2 blood transfussions yesterday and one today. The doctor said she has no iron at all and she has been having trouble breathing so she is now getting oxygen. What can these symptoms mean? The doctors say they still don't know what it is but they are running blood tests.
