DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS constricts w/ establishment of respiratory function. FORAMEN OVALE closes functionally as respirations are established, but anatomic or permanent closure may take several months. HEART RATE averages 140 bmn BP 73/55 mmHg PERIPHERAL CIRCULATION acrocyanosis w/n 24H RBC high immediately after birth; falls after 1st wk ABSENCE /NORMAL FLORA INTESTINE vit K Slide 4: RESPIRATORY SYSTEM NORMAL RESPIRATORY RATE Chest and abdomen rise simultaneously. - no SEE-SAW BREATHING LECITHIN & SPINGOMYELIN N/B are obligate nose breathers. Slide 5: Urine present in the bladder at birth, but NB may not void for 1st 12-24 hours. Later pattern is 6-10 voidings/day - indicative of sufficient fluid intake. Urine is pale and straw colored. - initial voidings may leave brick-red spots on diaper (d/t passage of uric acid crystals in urine Infant unable to concentrate urine for the 1st 3 mos RENAL SYSTEM Slide 6: DIGESTIVE SYSTEM Hard palate should be intact, small raised white areas on the palate are normal. EPSTEIN’S PEARLS Newborn can’t move food from lips to pharynx. CIRCUMORAL PALLOR may appear while sucking. capable of digesting simple CHO and simple CHON but fats Immature Cardiac (esophageal) Sphincter Stomach capacity caries= 50-60 ml Feeding patterns Slide 7: FIRST STOOL is MECONIUM. - black, tarry residue from lower intestine. - usually passed within 12- 24 hours after birth. TRANSITIONAL STOOLS - thin, brownish green in color After 3 days MILK STOOLS are usually passed. a. MILK STOOLS for BF-INFANT - Loose and golden yellow b. MILK STOOLS for FORMULA-FED - Formed and pale yellow Slide 8: HEPATIC hgb … unconjugated bilirubin (< 12mg/dl), …conjugated (water-soluble) bilirubin..excreted Slide 9: TEMPERATURE HEAT PRODUCTION a. Metabolism of “BROWN FAT” Axillary temperature: 96. 8 to 99ºF NB can’t shiver as an adult does to release heat. NB’s body temp drops quickly after birth. - cold stress occurs easily. Body stabilizes temp in 8-10 hours if unstressed. Cold stress increases O2 consumption. - may lead to metabolic acidosis and respi distress. Slide 10: IMMUNOLOGIC IgG & Colostrum NB develops own antibodies during 1st 3 mos, but at risk for infection during first 6 weeks. Ability to develop antibodies develops sequentially. Slide 11: NEUROLOGIC / SENSORY SIX STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS DEEP SLEEP LIGHT SLEEP DROWSY QUIET ALERT ACTIVE ALERT CRYING NEONATAL ASSESSMENT : NEONATAL ASSESSMENT Slide 13: WEIGHT normal= 2500 - 4300 g (5.5 to 9.5 lbs) at term. Initial loss of 5-10% of body weight - normal for the first few days - this should be regained in 1-2 weeks LENGTH Average 45.7-55.9 cm (18-22 in) CHEST CIRCUMFERENCE 30-33 cm (12-13 inches) should be equal to or 2-3 cm < head circumference Slide 14: 25% of the body length; circumference 33-37cm Bones of the skull are not fused Palpable sutures Fontanels Molding …Caput Succedaneum..Cephal Hematoma Masses from birth trauma *Re-measure after several days if significant molding or caput succedaneum present HEAD LAG HEAD Slide 15: EYES EARS NOSE MOUTH NECK Slide 16: CHEST Appears circular since AP and lateral diameters are about equal Respirations appear diaphragmatic Bronchial sounds heard on ausculation Nipples prominent and often edematus Milky secretion (Witch’s milk) common Clavicles need to be palpated to assess for fractures Slide 17: ABDOMEN UMBILICAL CORD 2. GASTROINTESTINAL 3. ANUS Slide 18: Pigmentation increases after birth Skin may be dry. ACROCYANOSIS Small amounts of lanugo and vernix caseosa still seen May develop “NEONATAL RASH” - (ERYTHEMA TOXICUM NEONATORUM) HARLEQUIN SIGN SKIN COLOR Slide 19: Testes descended or in inguinal canal. Rugae cover scrotum. Meatus at tip of penis. BREASTS Nodule of tissue present in breasts. FEMALE GENITALIA Vernix seen between labia Pseudomenstruatrion MALE GENITALIA Slide 20: Predominantly flexed. Occasional transient tremors of mouth & chin. Newborn can turn head from side to side in prone position. Needs head supported when held erect or lifted. LEGS Bowed No click or displacement of head of femur observed when hips flexed and abducted. FEET Flat Soles covered with creases in fully mature infant. MUSCLE TONE Slide 21: BIRTHMARKS Slide 22: TELANGIECTATIC NEVI (STORK BITES) NEVUS FLAMMEUS (PORT-WINE STAIN) NEVUS VASCULOSUS (STRAWBERRY MARK) MONGOLIAN SPOTS REFLEXES PRESENT at BIRTH : REFLEXES PRESENT at BIRTH ROOTING REFLEX : ROOTING REFLEX PALMAR-PLANTAR GRASP REFLEX : PALMAR-PLANTAR GRASP REFLEX Newborn’s fingers curl around the examiner’s fingers and the newborn’s toes curl downward. Palmar response lessens within 3-4 months Plantar response lessens within 8 months DARWINIAN REFLEX : DARWINIAN REFLEX MORO REFLEX : MORO REFLEX BAINSKI REFLEX : BAINSKI REFLEX SLEEPING OR WALKING REFLEX : SLEEPING OR WALKING REFLEX CRAWLING REFLEX : CRAWLING REFLEX Place the newborn on the abdomen The newborn begins making crawling movements with the arm and legs Reflex usually disappears after 6 weeks TONIC NECK/FENCING REFLEX : TONIC NECK/FENCING REFLEX CRY : CRY Loud and vigorous. Heard when infant is hungry, disturbed or uncomfortable. GESTATIONAL AGE ASSESSMENT : GESTATIONAL AGE ASSESSMENT Slide 34: Direct examination of the infant leads to an accurate assessment of maturity. SKIN thickens with gestational age may be dry/peeling if postmature LANUGO disappears as pregnancy progresses SOLE (PLANTAR) CREASES increase with gestational age (both depth & no.) Slide 35: AREOLA OF BREAST at term, 5-10 mm in diameter EAR CARTILAGES Cartilage stiffens, recoil increases, and curvature of pinna increases with advancing gestational age. GENITALIA Female, look for the labia majora to cover the labia minora and clitoris Male, check for descended testicles & scrotal rugae Slide 36: NEUROMUSCULAR ASSESSMENT - best done after 24 hours RESTING POSTURE Relaxed posture (extension) seen in the premature; Flexion increases with maturity SQUARE WINDOW ANGLE Flex hand onto underside of forearm, identify angle at which you feel resistance. Angle decreases with increasing gestational age. Slide 37: ARM RECOIL Flex infant’s arms, extend for 5 sec., then release. Note angle formed as arms recoil. Decreases with increasing gestational age. POPLITEAL ANGLE Place infant on back, extend one leg and measure angle at point of resistance. Angle becomes more acute as gestation progresses. Flex infant’s arms, extend for 5 sec., then release. Note angle formed as arms recoil. Decreases with increasing gestational age. Place infant on back, extend one leg and measure angle at point of resistance. Angle becomes more acute as gestation progresses. Slide 38: SCARF’S SIGN Draw one arm across chest until resistance is felt; note relation of elbow to midline of chest. Resistance increases with advancing gestational age. HEEL TO EAR Attempt to raise foot to ear, noting point at which foot slips from your grasp. Resistance increases with gestational age. INITIAL CARE OF THE NEWBORN : INITIAL CARE OF THE NEWBORN Slide 43: Observe and assist with initiation of respirations Assess Apgar score Note characteristics of cry Monitor for nasal flaring, grunting, retractions and abnormal respirations Obtain vital signs. Observe NB for signs of hypothermia or hyperthermia. ASSESSMENT Slide 44: Suction mouth, then nares with bulb syringe. Dry baby and stimulate crying by rubbing. Maintain temperature stability. Keep newborn with mother to facilitate bonding. Place newborn at mother’s breast if breastfeeding is planned or place on mother’s abdomen. Place newborn in a warmer. Position newborn on the side or abdomen or in modified Trendelenburg position to facilitate drainage of mucus. Ensure proper NB ID Footprint NB & fingerprint mother on ID sheet/ agency’s policies & procedures Place matching ID bracelets on mother & NB NURSING INTERVENTION Slide 45: APGAR SCORING SYSTEM Perform and record Apgar score at 1 min & at 5 mins. If the score is less than 7 at 5 mins., the Apgar score shld be perform at 10 mins. A score of 7-10 indicates a healthy newborn. A score of 3-6 is considered moderately depressed. A score of 0-2 is severely depressed.

NURSING INTERVENTIONS NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) : An ischemic attack to the intestine resulting in thrombosis & infarction of the affected bowel, mucosal ulcerations, pseudomembrane formation, & inflammation. Bacterial action (E.coli or Klebsiella) complicates the process causing SEPSIS. May be precipitated by any event in which blood is shunted away from the intestine to the heart & brain. - Fetal distress - low Apgar score - RDS - prematurity - neonatal shock & asphyxia NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) : NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) Average onset: 4 days NEC more encountered more frequently due to reasons that more severely ill infants are surviving. May ultimately cause bowel perforation. MEDICAL MANAGEMENT Parenteral antibiotics Gastric decompression Correction of acidosis & fluid and electrolyte imbalances Surgical removal of diseased intestine NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) : NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) CLINICAL FINDINGS History indicating high risk group Findings related to sepsis - temperature instability - apnea, labored respirations - cardiovascular collapse - lethargy or irritability NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) : Gastrointestinal symptoms - abdominal distention - vomiting or increased gastric residual - poor feeding - (+) Hematest for stools - X-rays showing air in the bowel wall, adynamic ileus, & bowel wall thickening NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) : NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS (NEC) NURSING INTERVENTIONS Carefully assess infants at risk for early recognition of symptoms.
