IDF Saves Life of 13-Year-Old PA Boy

An IDF medical team on Sunday saved the life of a 13-year-old Palestinian Authority dialysis patient whose life was in danger due to the worsening of his condition.

"We received a call around nine in the morning from the Chief Medical Officer of the Judea and Samaria Division informing us that there was a boy hospitalized in the Jenin hospital in need of further intensive care," said Lt. Abed Rabah, Medical Officer of the Menashe Regional Brigade in the Judea and Samaria Division,according to the blog of the Israel Defense Forces.

The Division Medical Officer was contacted when the child's condition escalated after he had been anesthetized and attached to a breathing tube, which resulted in pulmonary edema – fluid accumulation in the air spaces of the lungs. The IDF transferred him to the Rambam Healthcare Campus in Haifa, whose Meyer Children's Hospital specializes in Pediatric Nephrology Dialysis.
