TRACHEOESOPHAGEAL FISTULA (TOF)
A Rare Condition Needing Urgent Attention
I would not have written about this condition but for
the fact that you may be the first one to suspect it before the
nurses or even the doctors think of it.
If your newborn baby has excessive salivation or coughs
or vomits each time you give him a feed, draw your doctor’s attention to these symptoms. Most likely, the cause will
be something simple and not TOF. However, early diagnosis
of this condition is important to allow your doctor to take
further steps to help your baby.
