露西-萊特比的審判。醫護人員奮戰45分鐘搶救嬰兒

謀殺案審判中,醫生們在45分鐘的搶救過程中使用了5個劑量的腎上腺素並嘗試了兩輪復甦,以挽救一個嬰兒。

據稱,護士Lucy Letby將空氣注入嬰兒的血液中,該嬰兒被稱為Child E,於2015年6月在切斯特伯爵夫人醫院死亡。

萊特比女士被指控在2015年至2016年期間在該醫院謀殺了7名嬰兒並試圖謀殺另外10名嬰兒。

陪審團被告知,這對雙胞胎是早產兒,萊特比女士是兩個男孩的指定護士。

2015年在醫院擔任初級醫生的克里斯托弗-伍德(Christopher Wood)的筆記,概述了2015年8月的一個深夜是如何接到一個墜機電話,要求協助處理兒童E。

根據他在北京時間1點23分的記錄,心肺復甦術(CPR)被停止,兒童E在被交給他的父母之前被清洗了。

Wood醫生後來向Letby女士的辯護律師Ben Myers, KC證實,他是唯一負責兒科和新生兒科的高級衛生官員,而Harkness醫生是當晚負責這些科室的唯一註冊醫生。

伍德醫生同意,他即將結束四個月的培訓實習,對新生兒 "沒有什麼經驗"。

一名在E號兒童昏倒和死亡前一天值班的護士後來告訴陪審團,這個嬰兒一直很 "穩定"。

在被問及對兒童E的評估時,這位因法律原因不能透露姓名的護士說。"除了高血糖之外,他在那個班次上表現良好"。

但這名護士同意KC的邁爾斯先生的觀點,即孩子E是早產兒,而且存在與此相關的 "風險"。

法院命令禁止報道據稱被萊比女士攻擊的兒童的身份,同時也禁止確認與兒童有關的父母或證人。


Doctors used five doses of adrenaline and tried two rounds of resuscitation during a 45-minute battle to save a baby, a murder trial has heard.

Nurse Lucy Letby allegedly injected air into the bloodstream of the baby, known as Child E, who died at the Countess of Chester Hospital in June 2015.

Ms Letby has been charged with murdering seven babies and attempting to murder 10 others at the hospital between 2015 and 2016.

The twins had been born prematurely and Ms Letby was the designated nurse for both boys, the jury was told.

Notes from Doctor Christopher Wood, who was a junior doctor at the hospital in 2015, outlined how a crash call came in late one night in August 2015 for assistance with Child E.

According to his notes at 01:23 BST, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was stopped and Child E was cleaned before being given to his parents.

Dr Wood later confirmed to Ms Letby's defence lawyer Ben Myers, KC, that he was the only senior health officer covering paediatrics and the neonatal unit, with Dr Harkness the only registrar covering those units that night.

Dr Wood agreed that he was coming to the end of a four-month training placement and had "very little experience" with neonates.

A nurse, who was on shift the day prior to Child E's collapse and death, later told the jury the infant had been "stable".

Asked for an assessment of Child E, the nurse, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said: "He was doing well on that shift, apart from the high blood sugars."

But the nurse agreed with Mr Myers, KC, that Child E had been born premature and that there were "risks" associated with that.

A court order bans the reporting of the identities of the children allegedly attacked by Ms Letby, while identifying parents or witnesses connected with the children is also banned.
