Lauren had a doctors appointment today.
She got a great report...
-Gage weighs approximately 4.7 pounds...(give or take 11 oz)!
-The lung-to-head circumference ratio is 1.38!
-And Dr. Boddy couldn't even find the VSD today!
Praise the Lord!
The lung-to-head circumference ratio (LHR) is an ultrasound-based
measurement of the contralateral lung area taken at the level of the
4-chamber view of the heart. The measurement is corrected for
gestational age using the head circumference. Values less than 1.0
are considered severe, and are associated with increased morbidity
and an increased need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).
