One of the medical areas where technology has most rapidly advanced is neonatal care. In the 1960s when Neonatal Intensive Care Units first opened, a premature baby had a five percent chance of survival. Now, that chance is at 95 percent.
Despite this high survival rate, premature babies often have severe disabilities as a result of their time in the NICU. Doctors and parents are then left with tough decisions about which babies they fight for.
Art Caplan heads the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU's Langone Medical Center. Tami Gaines is the mother of two prematurely born twins and author of the book "Preemie Parents: 26 Ways to Grow with Your Premature Baby."
