Baby of Chaya was born on 24th May 2016 at Apollo Cradle, Jayanagar, Bangalore and was diagnosed with Right Eventration of Diaphragm. Due to poor financial status they were not able to continue the baby’s treatment there hence was shifted to Bangalore Medical College (Victoria Hospital) where he underwent Right Plication of Diaphragm on 1st June 2016. Baby was kept on observation but developed respiratory problems off and on. As the baby’s condition was not stabilising his parents shifted him to Manipal Hospital on 16th June 2016 for medical intervention.
Baby was on medical intervention with ventilation and showed improvements and scan was done which revealed decrease in excursions of diaphragm but was on antibiotics and poor saturation continued on artificial oxygen. After 20 days an X- ray was done which showed Pneumonia on the left side and continuing medical intervention.
Baby’s father Mr. Anil Kochar works in Blue Dot Courier Company as a field worker and mother Mrs. Chaya works as a Audit Associate at KPLG and earns Rs. 22000/- totally. They had insurance of Rs. 300000 which is exhausted and they have shelled out all the money they have and also taken loan from their companies and friends. The baby is showing slow development and his condition is not stabilising and is dependent on ventilator completely. They are not able to bare the charges.
Till date their bill amount is Rs. 861401 approximately and might need further Rs. 10 to 15 lakhs depending on the day to day condition of the baby.
As per the consultant baby’s condition cannot be ruled out as he is highly dependent on ventilator and antibiotics and may require other 2 to 3 months of admission.
