Baby Atticus will join at least seven other babies born at RBWH today, February 29, which only occurs in a leap year.  

Mum Myrelle is completely overjoyed with the arrival of her first baby, but admits that she had some initial concerns over her son being born on a day like today. 

I remember looking at the time as it was getting closer to midnight, but I was so tired, and thought to myself, the 29th is fine - we will still celebrate his birthday every year anyway, Myrelle said.  

Congratulations to the new family of three. 🥰

NUM Pauline, Dr Martin and the entire Metro North Health kidney health service recently celebrated 70 years since the first successful haemodialysis treatment in Australia which was performed at RBWH. 

The machine was built in 1954 by a doctor, a chief electrician and a biomedical technician, based off a prototype originally designed in the Netherlands, where it was used to successfully treat a 36-year-old woman suffering from septicaemia. 

The trio went on to create and build another dialysis machine, until the first commercially produced haemodialysis machine was purchased in 1961.

This is an amazing milestone from which lifesaving treatment, albeit life-changing and all-consuming, has enabled thousands of people to live longer in spite of kidney failure, Pauline said. 

#ShoutoutSaturday 👏 to the Metro North Health kidney health service on this milestone!

The whole birth process was a bit surreal. I thought I couldnt do it, but then I just did - so you can do it and instinct does just take over. She had some heart rate issues and you just switch into the mode of keeping your baby safe. I was so overwhelmed when she was here, I still cant believe she is ours and we made her.

Is it love or is it a heart problem? With the two often presenting with similar symptoms, we asked RBWH Cardiology registrar Dr Anish to share the top cardiac symptoms not to dismiss. 

❤️ Chest pain: Falling in and out of love can hurt, but if you have this, its straight to the ED!
❤️ Palpitations: When that special someone makes your heart skips a beat, its okay, but otherwise we need to see you. 
❤️ Shortness of breath: They might take your breath away, but if simple tasks like walking or going up stairs are doing that, you better get checked out.
❤️ Dizziness: Falling head over heels for someone can happen to the best of us, but if you are feeling dizzy, you might need to see the doctor.
