Bobbi Kristina Brown taken off ventilator after tracheostomy
Bobbi Kristina Brown has been removed the ventilator that has helped her breathe since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31, but no decisions have been made to take her off life support, a family source told Reuters.
The source, who declined to be identified, said Bobbi Kristina Brown’s overall condition has not changed. Removing the breathing tube was a standard course of practice to avoid infection, the source said.
Whitney Houston’s daughter will now receive air through a hole in her throat (tracheostomy), indicating she will likely remain in that position for weeks or months rather than of days, CNN reported.
Family members have said Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, the only child of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, is fighting for her life at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after she was discovered last month face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban home.
They have said little about Bobbi Kristina Brown’s treatment or medical prognosis. Bobby Brown has asked for privacy.
Police in Roswell, Georgia, are treating the case as a criminal investigation and have been questioning people about the circumstances leading up to Bobbi Kristina Brown being found in the bathtub.
