Diversity Is At Our Core

Meet Ligardine Myrthal, former patient at BMC
Ligardine Myrthal's life turned tragic when she was rushed to the operating room for an emergency cesarean section. Her unborn baby's heart had stopped beating and now every second was crucial to the baby's survival. Her daughter, Serena, was born moments later, limp and virtually lifeless.
After seventeen agonizing minutes, Serena's heart began beating; however, BMC's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit knew that only extraordinary measures could save Serena from a lifetime of disability due to the oxygen deprivation her brain had suffered. In response, the team initiated a Cool Cap protocol to rapidly cool Serena’s brain using flowing water for three days. Serena is now growing into a happy toddler.
