 Tiera Marion looks on at her 12 day-old premie son, Braylon Seabrook, Jr. Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at The Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers. The medical center recently introduced a Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist (NAVA) machine. The device helps premature babies breathe better. Unlike traditional respiratory machines, it can adjust to patients' breathing patterns i.e. deeper breaths, shorter breaths etc. as opposed to constant breathing rates decided by the machine.
