Doctors “Freeze” Baby To Save His Life

It’s the most tragic and heartbreaking thing a mother can imagine: learning there’s something wrong with her baby in utero. When Claire Ives was seven months pregnant, she got the terrible news that her son’s heartbeat was going at a rate of twice the normal number of beats, and was forced to deliver him five weeks early.

Baby Edward was born with supraventricular tachycardia, a condition that causes improper electrical impulses in the heart and leads to an irregular heartbeat. The end result is that the heart can overwork itself and stop, or organs which aren’t getting enough blood flow begin to malfunction.

Not long after he was born, Edward’s heart began to race the way it had in the womb, and doctors tried shocking it and administering medication, to no avail. The infant was given just a 5% chance of survival.

“I just thought he was going to die,” said Ives.

When nothing else worked, doctors turned to an unconventional method for a patient so young; cooling him with gel ice packs to slow his heart rate and protect his organs. His body temperature was dropped to just 91 degrees, and over the span of several days, a team of doctors and nurses stood close watch over the baby as his heartrate continued to spike up and down. Eventually, by using a combination of the cooling method and medication, they got his heart rate to remain stable. A full ten days after he was delivered, Claire got to hold her baby boy for the first time. Edward is now six months old and appears to be fine.

“It was horrible to see him lying there freezing in nothing but a nappy,” Claire Ives said. “He was heavily sedated so didn’t move much, and he was cold to touch – it looked like he was dead. All I wanted to do was scoop him up and give him a warm cuddle. I just had to keep reminding myself that it was saving his life.”

Though Edward will have to be monitored as he gets older to ensure the condition doesn’t return, the family says they are extremely grateful that science was on their side when it mattered most.

“It’s made me appreciate all the small things about my children,” said Ives. ”It’s the best thing ever to bring him home.”

      • not close

        God will not be able to save him or help him because God doesn’t exist. Next time you are really hurt and need medical attention you should pray about it. See what happens. You might get better or you might eventually die. Either way it will be “God’s will”. So much for that free will he gave our incestors Adam and Eve.

  • Fred Evans

    Any measures of lifesaving has to be God-given. Many individuals are alive today because of “unconventional” methods of lifesaving. Medical technology can be an asset as long as the doctors put the lives of individuals in God’s hands.

        maybe it makes you cringe because you know hes real and because your running from him. God bless you Stephanie and I hope he gets through to you soon Heavens knows youll need it! as for the baby im so very glad he is okay thank God for giving those scientists and doctors the knowledge to know what to do. :)

    • not close

      No man, it had nothing to do with God. These doctors received their scientific training and through science have saved lives. Last time I checked, God was a sociopathic father/ murderer. Quit giving your imaginary friend undeserved kudos.

    I was also born with this condition-but no one caught it till I was in my 40s.I should not have survived at all.My doctor this year-because my heart starting raceing again @ 172 per minute-did and “ablation”.He went in and zapped the electrical parts that were causeing the over ampage.It has worked beautifully-and my heart holds a steady 60 per minute,like it is suppose to be doing.Never give up!God bless your family and the wee one!

    none of your gods had anything to do with it..it was science and the medical team who saved the baby.i’m so sick and tired of you people talking about something your ”god” did.some god, giving a baby who isn’t even born yet a heart condition like that.we should all thank your god for that, right??imbeciles.

    • Shirley

      I’m not much interested in your belief or disbelief of God but I do want to share something. On more than one occasion I have heard a doctor or nurse pray with a patient. I heard my husbands doctors tell him that he was “in their prayers”. I heard one surgeon say a prayer that included “please guide my hands to do the work that you have prepared me to do”.
      So, I will stick with what I believe and you stick with what you believe and neither of us have to be concerned about what the other thinks.

    • Matthew

      Speaking as a man of science, you give the rest of us a bad name. Yes the doctors and nurses should get credit for the unconventional method of saving the child. Far too much I hear how they do more harm then good. They should be set as a good example to the rest of the medical community.

      And just because a person has faith, does not mean they are an “imbecile”. Science is about keeping an open mind which you have demonstrated by your lack of respect and tact you do not.

      That being said, I’m happy to read the child is doing great, and hope he has a wonderful life ahead.

  • Vanessa C.

    GW, really? U act like he was just an animal that got hit by a car. He isnt! He is someone’s tiny helpless infant baby.If Karma was always just, i would love to c that baby grow up and b the doctor that saves ur old cranky self when u r suffering from something debilitating or even life threatening! That would b karma at its best. U should really try using some empathy in life! And @Kathryn I agree with u except this really isnt a christian or catholic or any other religous topic. This is an INFANT BABY people!

  • http://google Avery

    Hey guys, getting into a religious debate about this babies life is driving way off topic. The fact is that he was saved, he’ll get to live, go to school and make his mom happy. I believe that God played a major role in this, so that being said, are you guys gonna attack me?

    Babies are a gift from God,not just science. People who believe a baby and a human life is purely science and nothing else, it goes to show how narrow minded our population is.

    Congrats Claire!

    • j

      amen to that!!!

    • Jennifer

      Your comment shows that you don’t even understand the term “science”. Science didn’t create humans, humans created the field of science.

      If a baby is a gift from God, at what age do they cease to be gifts from God? Osama bin Laden, Hitler, all the Nazis, all bad people started out as babies.
      I started out as a baby and now I’m an atheist…do you still think I’m a gift from God?

      Why are non-atheists so insistent on saving lives? If you believe in an afterlife, what does it matter if you die? Seems to me that a newborn baby would go straight to heaven. Isn’t that a good thing?
      Seems to me that if somoeone didn’t believe in a god or an afterlife, that they would want life to go on for as long as possible because that’s all there is. Non-atheists make no sense.

      God is supposedly all-knowing and all-powerful. This means, logically, EVERYTHING that happens is God’s will. So the heart condition is God’s will. So why treat it? Why save anyone from anything if it’s all God’s will and there’s an afterlife anyway? The behavior of non-atheists is illogical and makes me think that they don’t actually believe what they say they believe.

      • Mamabug

        NO god did not save this baby’s life, the doctors did. But a lot of you are being way to harsh here. God was there, he was giving the mom, doctors and nurses strength. Yes the doctors did all the work, and yes this is due to science. but don’t you think god and science go hand in hand. GOD created us with the ability to learn, man created science, maybe that is what god wanted, for man to gain the knowledge to save people’s lives. Yes maybe god did give the baby the heart condition, that doesn’t mean he meant for the baby to die, somewhere somehow this baby has inspired someone, either the parents, the medical staff, or maybe someone just reading the story. maybe that was god’s will, to show that good things can happen. I am religious, but I don’t judge. But I will say I am ashamed of how the religious people on this site are reacting, where do you get off judging or telling someone they are wrong for their beliefs. these are not gods words, he doesn’t want you to hate on others, or say they are going to hell. only god makes that decision. Share the word but do not preach it. Have you even read the words of Christ? because it doesn’t sound like it. And for the all the science believers, lay off the religious people obviously we give credit to doctors and science, but there is nothing wrong with believing god was there and helped save this baby. Give peace a chance guys, lets love not hate.

        • C

          I can’t believe the hate from some of the so called religious posters on this topic. What gives you the right to judge others, that’s not any Christianity I know. You show yourselves as typical fanatics picking and choosing the Words that fit with your messed up logic. What gives you the right to tell people they’re going to burn in hell because they don’t believe? If you believe in God, you know it’s his job to judge, not yours so save it for someone who cares.

  • Carl

    I am very happy that the baby tolerated this procedure. Its quite obvious that science saved this child based upon good medical knowledge and precedent. I don’t dismiss God within the big scheme of things but we have to give credit to free will and the doctors involved. We should not get too crazy when we talk about God.

  • ICURN

    We call it icing, not “Freezing.” At 91 degrees the patient is no where near being “frozen”. The purpose is to slow down the body functions, greatly reducing the body’s demand for oxygen. Thus, less damage to the vital organs when the heart is unable to supply the oxygen that is normally needed. This process is usually used for cardiac arrest patients that have been resuscitated and remain unconscious. It’s a very complex process that requires much more than just lowering the body temp.

    • sa

      we call it hypothermia therapy.

      • sa

        and then, the patient is very slowly re-warmed

  • xXx #1 bitch xXx

    i dont know why people have to be rude about this shit! if that was your babi you sure in hell wouldnt be taking trash your be wanting someone to put prayers in his/her life to survive espsially when you just had it and been able to touch it for 10 days later so i recomend peopl who wants to continue taking shit should think about there future and there children this same exact shit could happen or it could be born with something way worse and it die before you even touch it get to touch it for the first time when its DEAD so i am sorry about the baby having to go thought that i was in ice wheni was 6 months old with 104.5 fever and the doctores wouldnt take me out untill my temp was at 86.5 and it worked they tock me out about 2 hours later and look at me im a miracale babygod saved my life because it wasnt my turn

  • Sharon

    You know there is a saying that God won’t give you more than you can handle, I know that’s true because I would have been dead long ago If it weren’t for God. God did not give him a heart condition it just happened,or perhaps you can blame it on all the crap that’s being put into the air.
    That beautiful baby is alive because the doctors had the knowledge to attempt a procedure that they weren’t certain would work, where do you think they received that knowledge? Medical school? yes indeed, but without the grace of god they might not have become doctors at all.
    So if you choose not to believe in God don’t but please do not say he created this child and gave him a life threatening heart problem, because that is just insane. To the mother of this beautiful baby may God bless you and keep you and your family safe.

    • steven

      Yeah, from another article talking about it, it was London.

  • Doc Halide

    This is a medically induced coma with hypothermia. And it’s also a pretty common procedure It’s indeed more than just cooling someone down. It involves extremely careful administration of various drugs and incredibly close monitoring of the patient’s moment to moment condition. I learned a great deal about this as a science fair nerd in high school when I did a project on this using mice (shut the hell up PETA) instead of babies as there were some pesky concern about ethics.
    Folks, PLEASE give credit where credit is due. Your god or big invisible guy in the sky, or whatever other claptrap you care to believe had nothing to do with this. It was the Doctors, nurses, technicians, and therapists who saved this kid’s life, and did a helluva job. Their skill and abilities were not magically bestowed by Fairy godFather. They were acquired by study, determination, and hard work. They get all the credit.
    Pray all you want, go to church, make a joyful noise. Just don’t bug the rest of us with your drivel

    • Sue

      Well said Doc. It’s very interesting that when something good happens, it was “god’s will” and when something tragic happens you hear “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” I ask these people – why would your god have people raped and murdered, yet save others?

      Yeah go ahead and give me negative input. I guess god knows it’s what I can handle. Pffft

        Best wishes to a long, healthy life for this baby!

    • nancy

      Yeah well GOD created all those people to have the ability to save that child and many other people. This is what is wrong with the world no one believes in God and he is wonderful and with HIm in your heart anything is possible. When something bad happens it is not God doing that it is the devil. Think people and start believeing before its to late!!

      Well said. Thank you. And thank you for your contribution and hard work to saving lives

    • http://YAHOO Brandi

      I would just like to comment to the good Doctors post .
      You know its people like you that create things like war , gang violence, and other bad things that happen in this world. No one was tring to take away from the good doctors, nurses, and techs, that help that babie live , Sometimes people need a higher power to beleive in.I see nothing wrong with that , but you know it truly takes a magic to even beable to get pregnant, let alone have a baby with heart troubles and someone some where had to create the good people that were there to save that baby, I dont knbow you have me so frustrated I CANT EVEN THINK but at any rate it is wonderful that the baby is alive and may he live a longe and prosperus life, and as for you Dr Halide may you someday live to regret your choice of words and I sure hope nothing ever happens to you that may put you in a position that you just may need “God” because he wont be there !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            And just WHERE do you think the Dr. got the idea to freeze the child? … that would be God.. God has His hands on every Dr during surgery, during regular check ups. God does things for reasons NO ONE will ever understand, He took my mother from me when I was 7 but I know He had a higher purpose, am I hurt, sad, sometimes angry? OH YES! But I think of things He may have saved her from had she lived or how my life may have been different. I will not know until I meet the Lord myself and maybe not even then. Bottom line is GOD had a plan fr this child, either his life personally or to touch others around him, but I am sure whatever God’s plan was, it’s working whether we see it or not. You can bash things you cannot see or prove, I guess the air you breathe isn’t real because you can’t SEE it? Hmmm. I will not stoop to arguing with people who are so closed minded, you will find out one day that all along it was GOD who had the highest score on the little board you are apparently keeping. God Bless

      • Chris

        God didn’t make the child sick or defective. He protected us in a beautiful garden and we disobeyd and got thrown out into the chaos that is the world (accidents, disease). So now we all take our chances because there are consequences for our actions/free-will. Yes, the doctors and science worked hard and saved the child. Remember, God made the doctors and the order of the natural world too. So God was with the doctors and nurses.

  • Jack

    God had nothing to do with this, idiots! I can’t believe that you think that he did. If he really did have something to do with it, why was the baby born with a bad heart to begin with? Why didn’t he just fix it then? And how did he fix it afterwards? Oh, wait… He didn’t. Doctors and nurses did with MEDICAL SCIENCE. Science = 1 Christians = 0

      • James

        news flash. I will live this life not hurting other people. I will save lives, but I WILL NOT believe in a God. I will not thank anyone but my parents and everyone else who help me. Now, of course if God helps you through life, then obviously thank him. He’s helps you mentally. So I will live this life like how I want it. If he burns me after I die, I don’t think I have a choice. I don’t want to be succumbed to a person with so much “power”.

      • James

        So, it’s your business to believe in him and thank him everyday and for everything that has happened. But if you’re not thanking the Doctors and the staffs who saved this baby, you’re a cynical junkie.

        • kathy

          James it is not so much that you need to relate to God as power but AS LOVE. But then you need to know that you can call on God cause he does have the power to heal.Here on this earth when you hear of things like this yes you could wonder what god almighty loving God would allow or cause this,but he doesnt ..We are only here for awhile ,some have longer than others,the question here is how long is long? Thats why anyone that really accepts Jesus as the son of GOD and GOD AS THERE PERSONAL SAVIOUR they will understand that we will not all be perfect and we will not always have it easy but we do know if we run the race and faint not and we set our affections on things above we shall see God and have a home built in heaven with no more pain and no more sorrows. Its called a vision you have to have one are you will PERISH have doubt and fear and you will die of disbelieve in a lonely place.God does give the believers the healing in the hands the wisdom to know and the love to be patient ,so just try it dont give up or give in till you have really gave GOD a chance to show you his perfect unconditional love im 56 and i do know there is a GOD,I will be praying that God will open up your heart and eyes to see before you thta he is LOVE,

    • http://yahoo Katie

      God has something to do with everything. He was born that way to teach people something. We are taught not to take life for granted. My son was born with a heart condition and it was very tough. Doctors helped a lot but God has blessed him with life. Sometimes God wants to remind us not to take life or our children for granted.

    • Maggie

      God gives scientists the brains and desire to find cures. Yes, He could have touched this baby in utero and healed him, or He could have spoken “be healed” at any time before or after birth. God, in His infinite wisdom chose to allow this lettle fellow and his family endure this situation for good. We may not know what that is now; however, one day it will all make sense. Nothing goes to waste in God’s economy.

      Jack- there are lots of man-made reasons that people on earth suffer, acquire diseases, have abnormal dna patterns etc- most caused by environmental factors that we have created over thousands of years-to combat this God has also gaven man the knowledge, procedures, medicines and medical genius to be able to correct the medical abnormalities that happen everyday- and when it is God’s will, the medicine works-like in this case. Thank God for giving the doctors the insight and the knowledge to create this procedure and use it on this baby.

      God vs The Scientist

      God was sitting in heaven one day when a scientist said to Him, “God, we don’t need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing – in other words, we can now do what you did in the beginning.”

      “Oh, is that so? Explain…” replies God. “Well,” says the scientist, “we can take dirt and form it into the likeness of you and breathe life into it, thus creating man.”

      “Well, that’s very interesting… show Me.”

      So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil into the shape of a man. “No, no, no…” interrupts God, “Get your own dirt.”

    Next time everyone who’s been dissing God in this gets hospitalized, the doctors will say “Sorry we don’t have the medical science to heal you.” And then they’ll bill you and toss you out on the street. And to the doctor who claimed it was all him and his colleagues who saved the baby, you’re wrong. You performed the work of God’s hands and he used them to guide your body and mind to make that decision. Reprent from your thoughts fo yourself being some holy life-saving god yourself.

    I feel sad for the God haters here. They are his creation but they act like he is nothing people believe they are gods if they do one good thing; but really that was God leading you to do that thing. I hope you all have a reality check when the day comes and may God still acceot your sick infested souls! Just because you’re to weak to love God, doesn’t mean he’s too powerful to give you all of his love.

      ??? Saying your better that someone else doesn’t make you so. As a matter of fact that is pretty much the root of the problem. Holier than thou.

    • Nicole

      You are the one being intolerant of the non-believers. You don’t have more worldly knowledge just because you believe in God. That is a very ignorant thing to say. You do not KNOW for a FACT that God is real. You don’t. You can BELIEVE until your heart’s content, but you cannot and do not know. No one knows and no one can know. His existence can’t be proven. If your God is real, only He can judge and damn me. You can’t tell me that I am going to Hell, you are not God and you do not have that power. I would be insulted if I were your God because you are trying to do His work for him.

  • joe ruskin

    there is no such thing as god. It is a myth along with all the stuff in the bible..which may i remind everyone is written by MAN!! It’s nothing more than a “good” cult!

    • http://yahoo.com ???

      The sin of you and all other disbelievers here is disgusting and revolting, I will never come back to this page so I can avoid you sinners. And the Bible is God’s word written through the hands of men, so you’re wrong. Your own selfabsorbed life is a cult!

      • joe ruskin

        oh yeah real inspirational a man hearing voices..makes me wanna believe

        • KP

          Your “christian” standpoint is very disappointing to me. As a christian you are not suppose to put down “sinners.” We are all sinners. You have no right to call their sins revolting and disgusting. Whether they believe or not, I believe that God loves them.
          It is only out job to show love and compassion, none of which I have seen from you.

          Yes, some of the comments have hurt me as a christian, but they have free will as we do express themselves.

      • Nicole

        Point, this baby was saved by science and smart doctors, not “God.” You religious people are worse than non-believers a lot of times because you are so intolerant, ignorant, and judgmental. Fact is, NO ONE knows FOR A FACT that God is real. It has not been proven and it cannot be proven whether or not God exists. You can BELIEVE that he is real, Joe can BELIEVE that he is not real, but neither of you know for sure. That is why I am agnostic.

        • Mellisa

          Doctors find favor in the Lord’s grace to perform his work. His hand guides. I pray all of you who doubt in a higher spiritual force never have a situation where all you have is faith. Hope and faith feed the hungry. Who are all of you to try and take away the comfort of others who believe?

Hope that the mother and child have a happy life together.

    How did this become about God and Atheism? Look, I am glad that this procedure saved this baby’s life and it is a good reference point for parents or soon to be parents in the same or similar situations, in case other doctors are NOT using this procedure/method. Stay focused, people.

      Stephanie, i could understand how you would be saying what you are saying because you dont believe like a christian ,but if you knew or had experienced something that work wouldnt you share it with people you love or like ? when you become a christian or [believer] you ate taught to love everyone like God loves everyone even the ones that dont give him a chance to prove he is love ,and so for me to say that we christian we have experienced a relationship with God so we want to share it with people we do or dont know.everyone will go through a different test to have a testimony,of the love of GOD ,hes the healer, hes the provider ,hes a anchor,hes the rain hes the sunshine,hes the one and only .hes the only one, hes the ALHA AND OMEGA which is THE BEGINNING AND THE END,.The one thing you need to think about is if you do serve God and there is no God you havent lost nothing.and ,or dont serve him and there is one, whos really gonna feel good about the life you have lived with knowing that the Bible teaches us so much good and ways to overcome the obstilcles of life that steals and brings you so much sorrow .then to live thinking its all science or man or book ??? Seriously we are going to see and read and feel that there are people that will never want to accept Jesus ,but before i leave or turn around i will share what i know will work ,and that is BELIEVING IN A GOD OF LOVE AND MERCY AND GRACE . i do pray that You will someday give God a chance to show you his perfect love ,,

    • kathy

      Dave we get offended when we hear someone not believing in someone we know that has showed his grace and mercy on our lifes or in a healng that took place if it be with old or young, when you have read the Bible you will know that it READS[speaks] about unbelievers and what our duties here on this earth is for us to do . and that is us as christians want to make or maybe it sounds like we are be judgemental to open up your heart and eyes and to believe ,because we know that there is a satan the is roaring to and fro seeking whom he may DEVOUR .thats scarey to me being a mother, a nana, a,bus driver and CHRISTIAN, We dont have alot of time left to touch or to convince people to give God a chance,so we are sounding sometimes like FORCER.BUT its because we know there is a GOD AND WE ALL HAVE A DIFFERENT TESTIMONY TO PROVE HOW WE FEEL AND WHY . and we want to share with whoever that we have somthing that works !!!

      • Karisma

        the bible isn’t truly written by God, it is written by man. Am I right? United States came as a country to give us freedom of religion because many people were trying of being FORCED to believe in a religion that they don’t want. Don’t FORCE anyone.

  • Stephanie

    Well then maybe you should keep you BIASED feelings to your self and not post them on a web page. We none believers do not like coming to pages and reading your religious non-scense. If you dont like the replies to your comment, THEN DONT COMMENT IDIOT!! Jesus and God have nothing to do with Medical SCIENCE!!

      Stephanie, you should not call anyone an idiot when you spell like a first grader.

      If you are going to try and tear down someones faith and spiritual well-being, what are you prepared to offer to fill the void? If you have nothing of positivity to replace the faith of the faithful, you should be quiet.

      • Janice

        Agree with Melissa…..A-men!

    • Dave

      Just so I’ve got this right…your opinions are UN-biased (because they’re yours, of course). And those that don’t agree with yours are biased nonsense and you don’t like coming to a public website, open to all, and reading something with which you disagree, because those who disagree with you are idiots. Sounds like a “pot and kettle” kind of situation going on here.

    • Karisma

      Stephanie~i do agree with you. as for everyone else. I will believe in a higher power but i will not believe in the bible because only man has written that word. NOT GOD. This baby was saved by these doctors that went to school and pushed themselves to study for years. Show me other prove of God other than a bible. I do believe in other Gods and Goddess (which is a higher power). But that is my right. None of you should crush anyone else because of a belief.

This baby was saved by the swift thinking of doctors and with the help of science. I forget how you can pray someone back to health. But GOD and Jesus did such an excellent god, your right i think the credit should go to them, NOT!!! CAN I GET AN AMEN!!!

      Nicole, you seem like a very open minded person, so can I make a reccomendation? Buy a Bible. Give it a chance a see what it is all about. Or better yet buy “The Story” it breaks down the events of the Bible in chronological order and makes the Bible a little easier to read. If you cannot afford this book I will be more than happy to send you it. I’m not saying this will change your mind about God but in my case after I was done reading and understanding there was no doubt in my mind that God is real and that Jesus is the savior. Again, I’m just asking for you to give it a shot.

  • Nicole

    Please get a life, people. You keep ranting about God, but this article is about the baby and how the doctors saved him. God didn’t save the baby, the doctors did using science. If the doctors had simply prayed for the baby and did nothing, the baby would have died. Praying does not work. Science does, medicine does. Someone praying for me to believe in God is not going to make me believe in God. I don’t believe in God and I don’t not believe in God. I am agnostic. I believe that the existence of God cannot be known or proven, which is true. There is no proof that God exists and there is no proof that God does not exist. God could be real or he could not be, but it can’t be known or proven. I do not believe in a Christian God, at all, but a higher power could be real. Easily. I do think that there is SOMETHING out there, but the Bible is crap and so is the Christian God. Give the credit where the credit is owed. The DOCTORS saved that baby using science and medicine. God didn’t save the baby.

  • DB

    for thousands of years children were born with this condition…and for thousands of years people prayed for God to save their children…and for thousands of years the children died, horribly.

    So now, GOD finally decides to get invovled? Where the hell has he been all this time?!?!

    • Nicole

      Agree with you totally.

    My God is the GOD of science as well as miracles and wonders. HE is more than capable using doctors and scientists, or any one for that matter, to accomplish anything! Do I give glory to God, yes. Will I be thanking HIM for doctors and scientists like these, yes. We need them. Will I be praying for this child and his family, yes again. And will I be praying for those with views different from mine, whether they want it or not, yes, I will be praying for them as well. May God bless all of my Christian siblings who posted.
