    • The 1st 24 hours of LifeThe first 24 hours of life is a very significanttime due to critical transition fromintrauterine to extra uterine life .
    • Immediate care of newborn 3
    • Purposes of immediate care of newborn• Establish and maintain respiratory function.• Provide warmth and prevent hypothermia.• Ensure safety from injury and infection.• Identify actual and potential problems that might require immediate action. Immediate care of newborn 4
    • ImmediateCare of the Newborn• Airway• Breathing• Temperature• APGAR• IDENTIFICATION
    • Implementation:• Oro-pharengeal Suctioning:• 1.Wipe the neonate’s mouth with a piece of gauze around your index finger once his head has been delivered.• Wrap and dry the neonate in a warmed towel.• Suction the neonate’s mouth with a disposable Suctioning. Immediate care of newborn 6
    • Implementation:• Place the neonate in a radiant warmer.• Replace the wet towel and wrap the neonate in another dry towel.• Place newborn in trendlenburng position.• Do suction of oropharyngeal canal.• Oxygen may be given.• Continue suction as fluid is aspirated. Immediate care of newborn 7
    • Dry the Baby • Hypothermia is common • Wet newborns rapidly lose heat • Use a warm, dry, soft towel • Any absorbent material:
    • Replace the Wet Towels • Then let the mother hold the baby • Her body heat will help keep the baby warm • Cover the head to prevent heat loss
    • POSITIONING OF THE NEWBORN • Positioning Right side lying 1. promote drainage secretion 2. fasten gastric emptying time • good airway.
    • Airway & Breathing• Suction gently & quickly using bulb syringe or suction catheter• Starts in the mouth then, the nose to prevent aspiration Immediate care of newborn 11
    • Suction first from Mouth and then fromNose Use a by use of bulb syringe
    • Airway & Breathing• Stimulate crying by rubbing• Position properly- side lying / Provide oxygen when necessary Immediate care of newborn 13
    • Assess the newborn’s conditionA- One minute APGAR Score&- reassess at5 minutes.B-Neurological examination by checkingcommon reflexes of the newborn.C-Vital signs pulse, respiration &temperature.D-Growth measurement include length,weight, head & chest circumferences. Immediate care of newborn 14
    • Assess the newborn’s conditionE-Assess for any gross abnormality, congenitaldefects in head,F- eyes, ears, chest, spine,. face, nose,abdomen, anus, external genitalia &extremities.G-Assess for any signs of eye infection. Immediate care of newborn 15
    • Apgar score• The Apgar score is determined by evaluating the newborn baby on five simple criteria on a scale from zero to two and summing up the five values.The resulting Apgar score ranges from zero to 10. Immediate care of newborn 16
    • APGAR Scoring SystemA ctivity/ Muscle ToneP ulse/ Heart RateG rimace/ Reflex Irritability/ ResponsivenessA ppearance/ Skin ColorR espiration/ Breathing1 2 3 4 5 Immediate care of newborn 17
    • APGAR
    • Apgar score Sign 0 1 2Heart rate(pulse Absent Below 100 Above 100Respiratory Absent Weak cry Good , strong cry effortMuscle tone none Some flexion of Active motion , extremities extremities well flexed . Reflex No Grimace Cry irritability response Color Blue or Body pink , Pink pale extremities blue Immediate care of newborn 19
    • Significance of Apgar score• Healthy newborn: 7-10 at both 1 and 5 minutes .• Moderately depressed newborn : 3-6 ( Need resuscitation )• Severely depressed newborn : 1-2 ( Intensive resuscitation ) Immediate care of newborn 20
    • Cord CareImmediate care of newborn 21
    • Cord Care• Use sterile plastic clamp or ligature, the first ligature is placed about 2.5-3 cm from the abdomen & second ligature is placed about 1cm from the first ligature.• Press between the two ligatures.• Cut the cord by blunt sterile scissor after the second clamp.• Examine umbilical cord structure (two arteries and one vein) Immediate care of newborn 22
    • Cord Care Continue• Paint the end of the stump with alcohol.• Clean the cord at the base of cord firstly, then the stump from down to up with one direction and cleaning the cord clamp.• Let the cord exposed not covered by the diaper.• Assess the signs of cord healing and signs of infection (erythema edema tenderness). Immediate care of newborn 23
    • Cord CareImmediate care of newborn 24
    • Eye care:• Clean the eye lids é sterile warm sterile water and cotton.• Wipe from inner to outward.• Install one drop of solution of isophenicol.• Wipe the excess of solution by clean cotton. Immediate care of newborn 25
    • Vitamin K Injection• Administer 1mg. Vitamin K by I.M injection.• Route: IM into the lateral anterior thigh (Vastus lateralis). Immediate care of newborn 26
    • Vitamin K Administration Immediate care of newborn 27
    • Identification of the newborn• Identification of the newborn which place on wrist & ankle (mother name, hospital no, sex, weight of newborn).• Before transferring to nursery, ID tag should be applied. Immediate care of newborn 28
    • Dressing/ Wrapping • “Mummy” • Wrap in warm blanket • Cover head with stockinette cap Immediate care of newborn 29
    • Assessment of vital signs•temperature : the axillary method is the safest .Normal axillary temperature is 36 – 36.5 °C •Heart Rate ( HR ) : HR is counted for 60 seconds at the apex of the heart (Rangefrom 100- 160 b/m immediately after birth ) .•Respiratory Rate ( RR ) :RR varies from 30- 60 b/m when the infant is not crying .•Blood Pressure ( BP ) :Not routinely assessed in healthy term infants .The range of normal blood pressure in term infants is 60- 90 mmhg for systolic pressure and 40 – 50 mmhg for diastolic pressure . Immediate care of newborn 30
    • ANTHROPOMETRIC MEASUREMENT• HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE : 33-35cm• CHEST and ABDOMEN : 31-33cm• LENGTH : 47-54cm• WEIGHT : 2500-4000 grams Immediate care of newborn 31
