    cleft lip
  2. Problems that are associated with cleft lip are:
    • bonding
    • feeding
  3. Surgical repair of a cleft lip is __________.
  4. Cheiloplasty post-op:
    • IV fluids
    • I&O
    • avoid sucking for 1-2 weeks
    • feed with rubber tipped syringe
    • Breck feeder (bulb tipped syringe)
    • H2O first, then formula
    • upright for feeding, burp every 1/2 oz
    • no suctioning or tongue depressors
    • position inclined on back/upright in infant seat or on right side NEVER on abdomen
  5. Suture line care after a cheiloplasty:
    • do not allow to crust (scarring)
    • use saline/sterile water
    • antibiotic ointment
    • Logan Bar- prevents strain/stress
    • sutures usually removed 7-10 days
    • analgesics

    • 6-18
    • palatoplasty
  9. __________ is the abnormal narrowing of the pyloric sphincter caused by overgrowth of muscle at the pylorus.  Hypertrophy causes the stomach to become __________.
    • pyloric stenosis
    • distended
  10. S/s of pyloric stenosis appear when the infant is about __ to __ weeks old; includes occasional vomiting that becomes __________ with a very sour smell.  Other s/s:
    • 2-3 weeks old
    • projectile
    • sunken fontanels
    • dry and mucous membranes
    • no tears w/crying
    • inelastic skin turgor (tenting)
    • pallor, gray skin with dark circles
    • weight decrease
    • decreased UOP
    • urine specific gravity >1.030
    • VS changes (weak pulse)
  11. Pyloric stenosis is usually dx by __________.
  12. __________ is performed by splitting the hypertrophied pyloric muscle down to the submucosa.
  13. While awaiting surgery for pyloric stenosis, they might recommend a small amt of __________ to be added to the formula to thicken it and give extra nutrients.
  14. __________ is commonly given to infants with pyloric stenosis.
  15. How should you feed an infant after a pyloromyotomy?

    ductus ateriosis
  24. CHF tx goals:
    • improve cardiac function:  Digoxin, ACE inhibitors
    • remove accumulated fluid:  diuretics, monitor K level (low K can lead to dig toxicity), fluid and Na restrictions, monitor I&O, daily wts
    • decrease cardiac demands:  bed rest, small freq feedings; soft nipple with enlarged hole; semi-fowler's
    • increase tissue oxygenation:  supplemental O2, inrease iron foods; supplements as needed
