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.”

    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.

  • Mellisa

    You all say that GOD did not save this baby, but thats where you are all wrong.

    Doctors dedicate their lives to helping and caring for others, selflessly. They find favor in the Lord’s grace for their deeds. GOD guides their hands, actions and contribution to science. Ofcourse it was the doctors who performed the necessary procedures to save this child’s life, but it was the Lord who created a favor opportunity for recovery.

    Prayer generates positive energy, POSITIVE energy. Yes, there are other children who have this condition who die, every spirit has it’s own mission and journey.

    Again, if you are ready to tear down someone’s faith, please be prepared to offer something to fill the void you have now left.

    You guys believe the written words of several authors who were goat herding primitives who wiped their asses with their hands and thought the world was flat? Wow, must be nice to live in ignorant bliss. Maybe you guys should go back to looking at cupcake recipes on Pintrest. Oh and for those of you that will “pray” for me or tell me I’m going to hell, you should know that telling an atheist something like that, is like telling a grown adult that Santa won’t be bringing them toys… Looks pretty silly and is completely pointless, but hey! Knock yourself out!

    Thankfully, the mother has a brain is not an unfit paretn. We know this because she named her kid an actual name. Not “Jackson”, or “Brady”, or “Grant”, “Addison”, “Madison”, “Makenzie”, I even met a “Marquette” the other day. He thinks his name is “Mark”. Umm, nope, FAIL!

    I was born @ a time when doctors performed what was called the mustard-procedure. I was referred to as a “blue-baby”. Basically they drained most of my blood to fix my heart. I was about 18 hrs old when this surgery was done. I was born in Feb., but wasn’t able to go home til Easter. At about 3 I was reopened through the back. Not too sure what was done then. I was told my whole life it was unsafe to have children. I did have problems carrying 2 of my children, so an emergency procedure was done for both. Yes an abortion. I have also misscarried 3 others. I think about my lost children pretty much everyday. However, I was blessed with 2 AMAZINGLY AWESOME kids! They are (soon) 21, my son. And (soon) 13 my daughter. They are healthy and strong. And yes, they do know about their lost brothers & sisters. I do worry about my health issues being passed on to my grandchildren, when they start coming. I will be turning 45 on the 19th of this month (Feb.). My thoughts and strength go out to the mother, father & family. But MOST important, this strong new life. I am so overjoyed that this was something that was able to be done for him. It is crazy how something so simple (so to speak) could save the life of someone. GREAT JOB DOCS!!!!

  • your all wrong

    this should be about the baby and the science that saved his life u all sit and argue about religion and are wrong for doing it God doesnt want people 2 argue over him (or her) yes he wants people 2 belive but not 2 fight over him God is about peace and love not hate and hostility the one thing given 2 us all is freewill some may choose 2 belive and others may not but its ur choice 2 try and force whatever u belive down our throats is wrong

    People take things for granted WAY too much these days.

    God Bless this kid, the doctors,parents and family.

  • Amy

    Yay! The baby lived!

    -_- And that’s all i’m saying.
    Because i don’t care who did it.
    I don’t care because a baby survived.
    And that’s all that is important here.

    I don’t need a bible or to not have a bible to be happy for the kid.

    You don’t need to know if i am a christian, an atheist, or a damn Jedi to know i am truly in a celebratory mood because of this story.

          We need to keep a Christian Attitude here. God wants us to love thy neighbor so we can pray for the non believers, but God wouldn’t want us to attacking them. He wants us to live our lives as he has instructed up to and spread the good news of his salvation, but we should not demean and judge others, that is only HIS right. Just something to remember in this sometimes crazy and violent world. God Bless.

      Prayer Warrior – there are much better ways to try and get folks to repent and to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ besides yelling at them in a story of healing.

      Yes it’s a blessing but you should pick and choose the manner in which you preach … and then the message should be relevant and not so In Your Face. Posts like the ones you’ve put under this story really give Christianity a bad name.

      1 Peter 3:8
      Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.

    • http://leonaboudin.com lola

      Prayer, God is an imaginary friend for adults. He had nothing to do with this baby one way or the other. He did not create the world in seven days and he did not have anything to do with what was going on in that hospital. It was science, pure and simple.

      • Dawn

        Absolutely, The Blood Of Christ has done it all for us. Glad to hear from another child of Christ.
        It really bothers me to hear people say that “If I cant SEE it I cant believe in it….”
        Yet they believe in the wind, and you cant see that. I feel for their souls. We must pray for them.

        • Charlie

          There’s a lot of lost souls in this world. I will continue to pray like I have been for those who still have not found God.

      • http://yahoo susan

        lola…well since you were not around nor anyone else that talked back then we don’t know how the world was created actually. God is not imaginary he is real…talk to him once you’ll see. open your heart and he comes there. the bible that tells the “stories” and thats what they are… are words coming from a time when men ruled and women did have a voice! do you really think the bible about a loving God would write this or think this way? doubt it. if your angry about the lies… don’t take it out on God. it’s not his fault those idiots read stories that he did not write and preach them to ignorant people and they believe them! just saying…

    • dottie hubbard

      I agree science will take the credit but God was in charge from the beginning.I know a lot of people don’t believe but I do and I praise Jesus for his healing that he paid at the cross

    • Barbara

      Thank God there a few Christians who really believe in God’s being the Great Physician. Since He made science, the baby, the doctors and even the air that we breathe, He is the Healer, the Reason we are here and even loves the heathen who refuse to believe in Him. what Mercy!!!

  • David

    Freeze means 32 degrees. Not 91. Sensational articles like this make me want to pull my hair out.

    • Rebecca

      The article clearly says the baby’s temperature was dropped to 91.

      • Dawn

        91 degrees is freezing? HmHM???? Does not seem like you know much about science….Maybe you should take a refresher…like a 2nd grade science class.

        • Harry

          I don’t think they meant freeze in the way you think it means. Also there are quotes around the word freeze which means they didn’t actually freeze the baby.

    • cc

      Well that’s why there are semi-quotes around the word ‘freeze’…

    • Canace

      You do realize that freezing outside and freezing a body are two completely different things right? Once your core body temperature drops below 95 you become hypothermic.

      • rachel

        thank u canace there is one intelligent person. all these 91 is the the new freeze comments are driving me crazy.

    • Ryan

      ok, yes freezeing point of water is 32 degrees, but the human body core doesn’t have to get to 32′ to freeze to death… jeeze next time read the article and know your facts before talking …

    • rachel

      not in body temp. if u actually dropped a body temp to 32 it was would be frozen solid and DEAD! normal body temp for a baby is 98.3 dropping a body temp to 91 does risk death dork! google is a woderful tool befor u make a lame comment,

    As for the person(s) that think the omnipresent God theory works for everyone it doesn’t! Recently science saved our grandchild, thanking a presence that really none of us have ever seen, or most have never felt can bring about some heated debates. As for my daughter and son in law, they feel those doctors saved their child, after the other doctors at the delivery hospital messed the child up! We in American have freedom of speech so please don’t shoot the messenger! I was raised in the Methodist church and in turn took my children to church, until … they asked the obvious question…So why can’t we SEE God if he is real, why does he hide from everyone and why do people pray to someone they can’t see or have never seen? How did Jesus even get here if Mary never had relations with Joseph, and how did God make Mary pregnant for that baby to be Jesus? Well in all honesty they made a point! And after that we did stop going to church and the separation here is three fold; Faith, Religious thought, and being Spiritual! The American Indian’s can tell us a thing or two about faith, and being spiritual, they were connected to the land and thanked every single thing they killed for food for it’s life to feed their family. Each and every event in the life of an Indian is a spiritual event. Don’t think that they would have a problem with a scientific resolve it if works better than the medicine man. BUT all the herbs, and supplements we use to date came from the Indian technology. As for scientific results, our grand baby was on deaths doorstep and only got better when the children’s hospital stabilized her and when they could gave her the breast milk my daughter had saved for her daughter, she recovered from certain death or confinement from science! In the image of God I can understand, but the rest…12 men with robes and beards decided what would be in the bible, no women, just men that had limited education and instilled fear in most and sought to punish those during the time of Christ birth for those to believe what they professed to be true, by the witness of a hand full of people in a time AD or shortly after BC which ever you want to look up on the internet or look in a book. We are a culture of who said , who saw and who do you believe. Science verse religion!

    • GP

      Whilst I dont necesarily agree or disagree with what you wrote, I thought it was a well reasoned piece you wrote…right up to the point where you said, ‘BUT all the herbs, and supplements we use to date came from the Indian technology.’ Well, horse balloney. I am sure the Greeks would have something to say about that. And the egyptians before that.

      The one factual thing that you stated and you got it wrong. Ironic that you are talking about science!

      • Dawn

        I am a true believer of Christ, and what he did for us on the cross at calvary. And there were women that God taught, remember Mary Magdeline?? If you went to church you should know who I am talking about. Science is a good thing, but it would not exist if Christ did not create it.
        So, you dont believe in what you cant see. Can you see the wind?? NO… But you can feel it right??
        Im sorry you feel this way, I will pray for your soul, because with that attitude, and look at Christ, you are headed to an eternal life of burning in hell.
        Ever get a little burn on your hand? It hurts like crazy, well think of your whole body burning all over, without a break, EVER.
        I will pray for you, weather you want me to or not, you are Gods child.
        I also agree with the comment made before mine.
        I am very happy that “science” saved your grandbaby, but if it were not for God there would be no science.

        • Millee

          So you are saying God created science, right? Ok, I’m fine with that. But, by going with your statement that God created science, then that means that he also created the science to preform abortions. And if God is so “against” abortions, why would he create the science to preform them? Makes SO much sense. You people kill me. Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with your beliefs. Believe what you want. But I will tell you this, if you “believe” in one part of that statement, don’t get all butt hurt with the facts that come along with it. THAT, my friend, just makes you a hypocrite.

        I am sorry. It seems to me that you have lost your faith in Heaven and God. I am not here to talk down to you or give you a hard time for what you believe but I just needed to respond to your post because when I read it I felt like you were hurting. I also felt pain when I read your post because I know that if I didn’t have a relationship with God I would be lost. I don’t claim to be perfect or have all the answers but if you are interested I will gladly try to answer any questions that you might have about God or the Bible. Just to let you know a little about me, I am a Christian and I go to a United Pentecostal Church.

        another thing… i don’t practice religion as I believe it stinks! as does the stories in the man made bible. i know there is a God and he does not give a damn what you think! Thats why he gave you a brain and choices. you are happening to use them to criticize things you know nothing about. i am using my brain and choices to pinpoint you and take apart what you said. you a judge of reason? doubt it!

    • BRS

      No matter what is true, the only important thing is that the baby is saved. I personally feel that there is a God since even the Big Bang Theory still needs to be based on the fact that there was something here to begin with and where would that have come from? Makes you think…Hope the baby has a happy and healthy life. Congratulations.

      I had friend who was badly sick and she prayed for a mont get better and then her sickness got worse.She told I been praying,praying,praying and praying for God heal me why hasn’t he.A week later she went seem a doctor and seen how sick she was and they started treating her 2 weeks later she was looking healthier then in past month.She told the church yes god will answer prays but sometimes it takes a doctor do the healing and that why god give the knowledge and gift to save people lives.No it science it’s that god give them this is coming from a wicca.

      To G.D~ I am sorry for how you feel and I am more sorry for the christians responses. I am a christian but I am not going to beat this over your head for how you feel. We have all been there. I wanted to tell you to watch the Case for Christ. It will answer alot of your questions. There is a reason why we can not see him. The bible talks about faith and about believing in God who you can not see.That is what faith is all about. I encourage you to watch it and do me a favor, say this to Jesus, ” You know I don’t believe in this religion stuff but by any chance you are real; show yourself to me and my family.” I believe He will. I do believe everything happens for a reason. I also believe He is everywhere being patient with you until you figure things out. Please, sometime in your life never forget this blog and say to him what is above and see what happens. Jesus still loves you

    Without the Grace of God their would be no science, no you, or me. It is a blessing to have his healing power to heal this baby. The word say that God reign on the Just and the Unjust. so even though you don’t believe God chose to heal your baby…God is Love

  • Steve

    All of the people here giving thanks to “god” instead of the doctors, who’ve spent countless hours of their lives learning what we have discovered on our own through thousands of years of medical advancements, all of you sound like brainwashed cultists. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves for not giving them the credit they deserve. God didn’t provide us with the techniques used to save this baby’s life, we discovered them without any supernatural assistance whatsoever. Grow up, please.

    • http://www.yahoo.com lorena

      although I agree with you on the part that those doctor do deserve more credit than what fanatics give them. I see that part of your reasoning is flawed since by assuming the concept of a god, and I assume you mean a trype of christian like, then you must accept that that god did give the doctors something that enables them to provide the techniques used to save the baby, eg. Intelligence, reason, the brain and so forth. I respect you opinion but I just think your reasoning is a little wrong

        Yu a damn lie! God gave those doctors the knowledge and know how to saving a person life!. Now yu grow the fuck up.

      • pat fernandez

    • anon

      God didn’t give them shit there isn’t an all powerful God watching over everything we do. Wake the fuck up I don’t understand how you assholes laugh at Greek gods like zeus because they obviously don’t exist yet just one God has to.

      Your right God did not come down from where ever he is to do this but guess what MR. He gave those doctors life and they learned what they know through the choices that were laid before them when they chose medicine. This baby was also strong enough to endure what he had to go through. I believe in God. I believe that all things work in balance.

      • jeff

        so in order for god to do anything he has to be their ? so god couldnt of given the doctors the ability to do the procedure ?

        • http://yahoo susan

          sorry but they learned those procedures in medical school. you don’t make sense at all by the way! and be there? what you talking about…God is everywhere especially in your heart and good things happen if you listen! gosh your goofy!

  • mimi

    dint realize 91 degrees is the new freezing point

    • rachel

      it’s not that 91 is the new freezing point average body temp for a baby is 98.3 so that is 7 degrees cooler than average quite a bit cooler. u should cool ur body to 91 and see how u feel.

    Jesus is the Great Physician. Not one in the Bible did He not heal who believed in Him.By His stripes we are healed. Jesus healed me of breast cancer in the year 2002.I chose no chemo, rads, meds,or surgery. I walked out in faith.Jesus has paid the price in full. When Jesus heals, He heals 100%, free, without pain,scar or a knife. The Bible does not say to take pills. The Word is written to gather the elders together , fast, pray, annoint with oil, and lay hands. Did Jesus die in vain? Lke ws a Physician of the Law. After healing me, the Lord revealed to me that when we trust in man, we cross out out faith. Lord spoke to me that “if there were a pill to heal you, the Lord would have only needed one.” He gave one. His name is Jesus Christ.We take 1 pills, 2 pills, then 3, the side effects is out body rejecting the drug, because we are defling God’s temple. The holy Spirit lives in a Believer of Him.(Jesus) Does Jesus need a pill? Our faith s only as strong as Our knowledge of the Word of God.Thank you, Jesus

    • danielle

      you got lucky. I m sorry but believing in god didnt save you. many believers more pure than you die everyday and other non believers live. this quackery is what is wrong with this country and every other. You hear a child has been saved By A strategy known and taught TO PHYSICIANS ALL OVER THE WORLD and make it into religious banter. You probably cant hear how crazy you are, but leave your weird ideas out and congratulate the parents instead. the ideology that something other than reality is saving you makes for a very sheltered and closed off existence. How IS IT THAT BELIEVERS DIE AT ALL WITH YOUR SILLY IDEAS. oh wait eternal life yeah I heard that one too. WEIRDO.

    • Rachel

      What does your rant have to do with the baby? Nothing. Are you saying that they shouldn’t have tried to give him medicine to slow his heartbeat and just let him die? Because that’s what it sounds like.

    • Dan

      Your an idiot. Grow up, God is imaginary.

  • Jon D.

    I was born with the same condition. This is nothing new, and the same procedure took place with me only a few weeks after I was born. Ice shocking is very, very common for sufferers of SVT and WPW to regulate the heart rate.

    It has nothing to do with religion; it’s common sense and scientific knowledge.

  • jeff

    the real question is will this be covered under obamacare.

    • jeff hopkins

      Yes it will

    • pw

      this child was born in London moron, so take your attempt at pseudo-political mindless ranting elsewhere. but if he was born in the US, then yes, it would have been. and thanks to obamacare, the child would have actually had the opportunity to be insured rather than being automatically treated as if it’s whole life was one big pre-existing condition.

  • deanne

    i’m reading all this and all these peaple are ranting over god wow so a child was saved wonderfull that was important sorry that you all over looked that

  • erika

    This is exactly what happened to my son and I was about 8 months pregnant with him. My doctor didn’t deliver him and a week later his little heart just stopped beating. My baby boy would be 4 years old. I am so happy this little guy had doctors that knew what they were doing. God Bless him and his family

    • M

      i am so sorry for your loss

  • Abel

    Ice Ice Baby!!

  • LMHL

    DON’T READ ANY OF THESE COMMENTS. I DID AND I’M SORRY. MOST OF THEM ARE IDIOTIC.

    • Pierre

      I agree.

    Glad the little one has made it this far. I had a similar condition with a hole in my heart that would close when I was born. Also was in the icu for 11 days with pneumonia, and doctors had to ice me down to keep my fever down. The ice worked. Glad he’s ok.

  • http://yahoo hb

    in my continent,ive never heard of doctor freezing a life baby, but if it works, then good luck to the baby and the mother. My prayers for them is to be able to overcome this.

  • Stone

    Happy to read the little guy made it! All the best to him.

  • Pediatric CICU Nurse

    I work in a pediatric CICU is Pittsburgh. This is a common therapy for after an arrest to help preserve brain function. 10 days is a little much, usually its for 3.
    To prevent tachy arrythmias post op, we keep our babies temp around 95 degrees.

  • Dale

    Yikes!, I thought this was about the doctors saving the baby using a technique that is not widely known. How did religion get in the mix of this? I hate to say it. But a lot of you Jesus wierdos are very selfish people.

  • Maddie

    Look everybody, ask yourself if it really matters that much if it was God or science. The baby’s alive, ok? and you can argue for eons over it, but in the end the baby will still have lived. Lets not make this into World War III please. Im begging you…
