The journalist who reports on the health sector, Bujar Vitija, opened the topic of whether the baby of the pregnant woman who was killed today, could have been saved.
He gave an example of how doctors managed to save a nine-month-old baby who was in the womb of a mother who was tragically shot with a gun in Detroit, USA in 2013.
Vitija said that the evaluation of whether the child could have been saved in the case of the 35-year-old woman Hamide Magashi, should be done by professionals.
He said that Kosovar doctors should not be put on public trial for this case.
- The dilemma raised if the doctors had to make an effort to save the baby, professionals answer best.
I don't know how the case happened and what were the reactions of the doctors at those moments. After how many minutes did they come to the scene? Did they come out immediately or not? Since he was not sent to the room, was it possible to confirm the baby's death right there and then with a stethoscope (pinard) after the mother's death was ascertained? If yes, how is the result? With Pindard's stethoscope? Have the doctors fulfilled their oath in this case?
Are there similar cases where the baby was saved?
- Yes, the link below shows how the doctors managed to save the baby of a pregnant woman who was shot with a gun. The case was even more difficult because it did not happen near the hospital.
Emergency services rushed the dead mother to the hospital and the doctors gave oxygen to the mother, because according to this report, oxygen can circulate to the baby through the umbilical cord.
"Babies can come back quickly", says the attending physician. "I have seen many women die in accidents and babies have been saved."
I hope that these dilemmas will be clarified by those who are responsible, and that we will not hold a public trial for the doctors if they did their job properly or not, in this macabre crime.
