Abstract

Oesophageal atresia(OA) occurs in between 1 in 3500 and 1 in 4500 live births in the United Kingdom (UK) and has a slight male dominance (Burge et al 2013). Although OA can occur in isolation it is common, as with many neonatal surgical conditions, for it to be associated with other structural abnormalities. The following reflective case study will discuss the neonatal care of a term infant born with OA.
