    breathe on its own
  2. what must the newborn adapt to do the following: (7)
    • 1) quickly breathe and maintain respiration rat
    • 2) replace fluid in the lungs with air
    • 3) close fetal shunts
    • 4)allow pulmonary blood flow and increase cardiac out put
    • 5)maintain body temp (thermoregulation)
    • 6) pass first stool
    • 7)detoxify substances entering from the external environment
  3. In utero the lungs are filled with ____ and _____
    secretions of alveolar cells of lungs and amniotic fluid
  4. functions of surfactant
    • 1) reduces force between moist surfaces of alveoli
    • 2) prevents collapse with expiration
    • 3) promotes lung expansion

    C-section infant does not experience chest compression followed y chest recoiil
  14. potential consequences of cold stress
    look at pg 165 figure 9-3)
    • -increased o2 consumption
    • - increased glucose utilization
    • -decreased surfactant production
  15. factors contributing to heat loss
    • -large body surface area
    • -thin skin
    • -blood vessels close to the surface
    • -little subq fat
    • -wet skin with amniotic fluid
  16. how can heat be lost to the environment? (4)
    convection conduction radiation and evaporation
  17. Nursong assesent of newborn phase 1
    assessment and care of newborn ttake place in delivery room
  18. nursing assessment of newborn phase 2
    take place 1-4 hrs of age detailed exam performed on admission to the nursery
  19. nursing assessment of newborn phase 3
    care of newborn 4 hours of age until discharge
  20. normal general appearance of baby
    • -flexion and symmetry
    • -hips abducted and flexed at elbow, hand in fist position
  21. define opisthotonos
    extension of th neck with an arched back
  22. are respirations for more than 20 seconds ok?
    no it should be further assessed
  23. signs that indicate respiratory distress
    nasal flaring, sucking in of chest wall with the sternum moving inward with inspiration, grunting sound on expiration
  24. overheating can cause the neonate to break out in a pinpoint, reddish rash ofte referred to as prickly heat or___
  25. swelling on the head of the newborn, symmetric ad result of edema under the scalp, condition will disappear without treatment is called _____. increased urinary output may result from this.
    caput succedaneum

  33. pg 175-176 copy read and type flash cards
  34. low sett ears may indicate congenital anomaly is present in ___ system
  35. describe first meconium stool
    dark greenish black tarry stool
  36. behavioral states of newborn
    • SLEEP STATE: quiet sleep, active sleep
    • TRANSITIONAL STATE: drowsiness
    • AWAKE STATE: quiet alert, active alert, crying
  37. _____ test is used to detect the presence of an abnormal condition before symptoms appear
  38. screening for ____ and ____ is mandated in all states
    hypothyroidism and phenylketnuria
  39. what is PKU (phenylketonuria)
    condition in which the newborn cannot metabolize phenylalanine, it accumulates in the blood causing mental retardation
