Our Respiratory Adventure
A NICU Story
by Dr. Prem Fort and Adam Wood

Written by a neonatologist and a micro-preemie dad, this book takes you on a fun RESPIRATORY ADVENTURE through the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) as seen from the point of view of different families around the world. Doc Fort (a true-life neonatologist) will be your tour-guide as we explain some of the breathing problems, treatments and equipment used to heal babies. The book prepares parents for NICU life and serves as a keepsake of their own personal journey for years to come. The use of humor, heartwarming images and educational tips will help to make the NICU experience one highlighted by milestones, memories, and laughter.

Dr. Prem Fort is a neonatal ICU trained pediatrician with more than 10 years of medical experience. He completed his training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is originally from Lima, Peru and emigrated as a teenager to the great country of the United States seeking higher education. His passion for writing books began as child and all throughout his career as a medical researcher, writing for various medical journals on topics related to prematurity breathing problems. He has a passion for educating families about babies in the NICU and started doing so through social media. His co-author is Adam Wood; a retired U.S. Army veteran and published children’s author whose first book, “Our Preemie Adventure” has been read all over the world. Adam’s passion for writing came after his son was born premature weighing just 1 pound and 4 ounces and found very little books on the subject. He began doing public speaking, advocacy, creating online content and writing his first book to showcase life in the NICU with a humorous twist. He discovered his co-author through social media which sparked the idea to write another children’s book together. Their hope is to educate families about life in the NICU and bring cheer through their funny yet educational storytelling. Both authors bring a viewpoint that compliments the perspective of both parents and healers during their NICU journey.
