Pulse: The Ottawa Hospital Foundation Podcast

Oct 14, 2020

Premature babies need extra oxygen and mechanical intervention to breathe but this can damage their lungs, causing chronic lung disease. A stem cell treatment soon to be tested in clinical trials at The Ottawa Hospital may help heal the lungs of our tiniest patients.

In this episode, you'll meet Dr. Bernard Thébaud, a neonatologist and senior scientist at our hospital, and Jamie Eberts, a mother who holds out hope for what this could mean for the future, including for her own daughter.
