    My friend's baby is paralyzed: I need information on stretch spinal cord injury: Wise?

    My mother's friend knows someone who was just in a car accident with her baby.

    The mother has brain-damaged and has no idea what is going on. And the baby is paralyzed with as a quadriplegic C-1 injury, and is on a respirator.

    They call the injury a stretch spinal cord injury, and the doctors there aren't really familiar with this type of injury. If anybody has any information on this type of injury please post it or e-mail it to me.

    My e-mail address is: masedope21@Hotmail.com

    Wise if you could help me out on this one it would be great.

    hello dann. I am unsure of the extent of a c-1 injury however I believe I could offer at least a bit of valuable info as I'm a c-3. I'll email you the details asap.

    Dann,

    I recently posted a topic referring to an article that I just wrote on pediatric spinal cord injury. You might want to point your friend to the link http://carecure.rutgers.edu/spinewir...diatricSCI.htm
