Without a proper spelling, can you at least supply a context-?

Possibly. Context: a baby is born with a potentially fatal disorder arising from the premature inhalation of a substance in the womb which causes severe limits on lung efficiency after birth.

I think mircomium/micromium may be the thing they inhale, but I'm really not sure.

MECONIUM

Postby Katy_Bobbles » Fri Jul 13, 2007 8:38 am

Its meconium. Were you watching fight for life on the BBC the other night?? :lol:

I googled to see what it is and its actually the first stool of an infant. It has more of a tarry consistency. Sometimes its expelled into the amniotic fluid and the baby inhales it.

Wiki has a page on it

Oh no reason in particular, just interested. I doubt such a thing would make good conversation down the pub...unless I loaded that photo onto my phone :P
