A 5 day old infant (Gabe) is brought into the Children’s Hospital Emergency Department via ambulance. Gabe’s parents called the EMS as he experienced an episode they describe as a “blueish colour around the mouth” after breastfeeding. They indicate that over the past 24 hours, Gabe has not been feeding well and appeared to have increased work of breathing with an increased respiratory rate.
