Brenda is a nurse in a special care nursery. A 16-year-old girl had been admitted to the emergency department earlier that morning with complaints of excruciating back pain and nausea. She was diagnosed as being in labor and transferred to the labor and delivery unit. She was apparently unaware of the pregnancy. She received no prenatal care and cannot remember the exact date of her last menstrual period. An ultrasound determined the infant to be approximately 5 lb. All attempts to stop labor are unsuccessful, and a baby girl is delivered. The newborn is placed on the open bed warmer for the team to assess.They observe decreased muscle tone, spontaneous respirations, and heart rate 120. The infant is crying softly. The infant receives stimulation by drying with a warm blanket and oxygen blow-by via bag and mask by the respiratory therapist at just prior to 1 minute of age. The infant’s color is blue at 1 minute of age and her Apgar score is 7. The infant’s tone improves, and she begins to pull her arms and legs to midline. Her color improves quickly with blow-by oxygen and the respiratory therapist slowly backs off the oxygen. The infant receives an Apgar score of 9 at 5 minutes of age.The baby’s physical appearance includes the following: head a little larger than body size, numerous veins visible under skin, plantar creases on half of foot sole, ears are formed and soft with little cartilage, nipples aren’t well defined, labia majora smaller than labia minora. What equipment would Brenda check to ensure that it was present and working properly for the delivery? Why might she need this equipment?Based on the physical assessment and response to resuscitation, what would you determine this infant to be: preterm, term, or postterm? Why? How many weeks gestation would you estimate the newborn to be?Once the infant is stable, what course of action should Brenda take next? Why? What problems should she anticipate?2202
