The medical team will update you on the results of any test or investigation that your baby may undergo. Some test results take longer than others to come back than others but rest assured that you will be informed as soon as possible. Similarly, some conditions are diagnosed within a short period of time while other conditions may require more time and further investigation. Not all babies exhibit the exact same symptoms for an illness and not all babies will progress at the same rate.
In this section, there is information on medical conditions/issues that a baby may present with on admission or during their stay in the neonatal unit. This information is not exhaustive and should be used as a reference point only.
