Respiratory Distress Following Premature Delivery of a Baby with Patent Ductus Arteriosus - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical illustration series depicts respiratory distress following premature delivery of a baby. The upper half of the exhibit shows normal blood flow and respiration of an infant after birth, with the ductus arteriosus of the heart closing to allow oxygen-rich blood to reach vital tissues in the brain and lungs. In the lower half of the image, the infant is shown with a patent (open) ductus arteriosus and foramen ovale in the heart muscle wall. This causes oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor blood to mix together, resulting in poor respiration and eventual tissue death in the brain.
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your
illustration to the defendants, with a copy to
the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million
dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.
I appreciate your help!"
