Newborn is Given Xenon Gas For Brain Trauma
A British hospital has become the first in the world to give xenon gas to a stricken new-born baby to prevent it suffering brain injury. Riley Joyce received the life-transforming treatment at St Michael's Hospital, Bristol, when he was taken there suffering from lack of oxygen.
