Gosselin sextuplets continue to progress

Hershey, Pa. -- The Gosselin sextuplets continue to improve, according to Dennis Mujsce, medical director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Penn State Children's Hospital, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

"The Gosselin babies remain closely monitored and the management issues so far addressed by the NICU team are all to be expected in premature infants of 30 weeks gestation," said Mujsce. "Four of the babies continue to breathe satisfactorily without the help of the ventilators. Another baby is approaching the point where her breathing tube can be removed, as well. The NICU team will concentrate on improving the babies' nutrition as they continue to keep them warm and comfortable."
