A premature baby was resuscitated in San Diego last week using a new, specialized bed designed just for preemies. Averi Snyder was born four weeks early and not breathing. Her umbilical cord was tied in a knot. Mom Kim Snyder said the doctor didn’t immediately alert her to the dangers but dad Shane Snyder said he saw the whole thing. Seconds after she was delivered, Averi was placed into a special bed so that the team of doctors at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital could pump oxygen into her lungs while she was still attached to her mother’s umbilical cord.
