PROM premature rupture of membranes
when is a baby considered infected? if PROM for >24 hrs
C section if <39 weeks, increase risk of resp distress, infection, neonatal unit admission
toxemia may lead to HTN and proteinuria - at risk for seizures

A appearance
p pulse
g grimace
a activity
r respirations
blue pale appearance 0
body pink extremity blue 1
all pink appearance 2

If APGAR almost all 1s, score is 5
premature delivered normally
premature develop on time for age
small for gest age never catch up while developing
small for gest age big head
risk for small for gest age HTN mom
risk for small for gest age smoking mom
small for gest age vasoconstriction from old mom with HTN or smoking cause decrease blood flow and decrease nutrition
large for gest age very sick
large for gest age needs to be on monitors, nasal O2 and IV
large for gest age when cord cut, cuts off sugar supply but baby has too much insulin and seizes
post mature decreased subcutaneous tissue, dry baby due to low nutrition due to placenta quitting
Skin exam color, rashes, nevi
hemangiomas most not present at birth
sucking baby eyes open!
epicanthal folds (nasal side) - seen in Downs Syndrome
Conjunctivitis on day 1 m/c cause chemical (due to silver nitrates on skin around eye)
conjunctivitis on day 2 m/c cause gonorrhea
conjunctivitis on day 3 or later due to chlamydia **watch out for pneumonia!
Head exam shape, fontanelles, swelling, lesions, face
frontal bossing prominence of frontal bones seen with congenital syphilis
cephalohematoma blood between the skull and periosteum - at risk for jaundice
caput succadeneum fluid extraperiosteal below scalp and above periosteum
unilateral lacrimal duct obstruction another cause of conjunctivities
what happens if pressure at inner canthus doesnt open lacrimal duct and the baby is <1 yr? the optho will not probe it because too young
mouth exam palate, tongue, ebsteins pearls, supernummerary teeth
palate feel to make sure its intact - may have submucosal cleft
submucosal cleft looks intact but isnt and will create speech problemes
high arched palates associated with developmental and congenital anomalies
ebsteins pearls occlusion cysts midline palate or on gum, look like teeth, benign, rupture and go away
supernummerary teeth babys permanent teeth - no problem
neck exam masses, sinus tracts, clavicles
clavicle fractures many miss this! palpate for crepitus, heal spontaneously
masses SCM lesions, branchial cleft rests; goiter - mom may be hypothyroidism
cystic hygroma seen laterally
sinus tracts remnants of fetal development - dont cause major problems
thyroglossal ducts normally travels down but may not finish and may find mass/ draining sinus midline - dont remove until you know if it is the thyroid since they are small in newborns!
newborn breast engorgement may leak milk as mom breast feeds - normal due to moms hormones
normal resp rate of newborn 40
tachypnea of newborn >60
Only congenital anomaly you can rule out with a stethoscope coarctation of aorta
coarctation of aorta decreased pules in LE femoral pulses
Umbilicus vessels 3
umbilical arteries 2
umbilical veins 1
umbilical artery carries blood to placenta
umbilical vein carries O2 blood to fetus!
single umbilical artery possible malformation in Cardiovascular, CNS, GI, Renal, Karyotypic syndromes
Male genital exam make sure testes are down, look for hydrocele, hernia, hypospadius
hypospadius opening of urethra is any place other than tip; if severe, cant have circumscision because you need the skin to repair it
female genital exam normal to have mucoid or bloody discharge in breast fed babies due to maternal hormones
Back exam look for any skin abnormality overlying the cord because the skin and NS are derived from the same germ layer (neurocutaneous disorders)
hips dislocation, especially in breech deliveries - make sure you call it developmental dysplasia of hips (not congenital dislocation of hips because not always found at birth)
m/c finding with dysplastic hip abduction
Galazzi sign knees bent with feet on mattress - is one knee higher than the other? the lower knee is the subluxed hip
barlow maneuver attempt to dislocate the hip - you abduct and push up and feel it slip out the glenoid
ortolani sign when you bring the leg back down and hear the thud when it goes back - relocating the hip
developmental dysplasia of hips evaluate the hips every visit until they walk
when will the cord fall off around? 2-6 weeks
bowel movements normal can be 7/8 per day due to gastrocolic reflex or 1 per week when breast feeding because it is mostly water
baby doesnt cry because has gas passing gas because right before they cry they take a deep breath in and bear down
when do you do a spinal tap and check for sepsis? if baby is <1 month and has 101 F; <2 months and has 102 F; <3 months and has 103 F
elevated bili 1.increased production - due to increased hemolysis 2.impaired handling - due to immaturity or liver disease 3.increased reabsorption from intestine
Normal adult Hb 12-15
normal baby Hb 20 HbF (more Hb) because placental O2 is lower therefore once born, air O2 is higher and they break down the extra blood
septic jaundice high direct bili
polycythemia due to delayed cord clamping (increases blood volume) can cause jaundice
Jaundice of term infants begins 2-3 days and gone by day 7
premies jaundice begins day 4-5 and gone by day 14
c-section <38 weeks increase bili and jaundice because more immature liver
when do we worry about bili? if it rises >7mg/day, >12mg by 48 hrs or >15 by 72 hours
Jaundice starts at head and works down so check soles to see how far along they are
kernicteris yellow staining of brain
high direct bili very bad!
high direct bili caused by sepsis, infection, hemolytic disease, cystic fibrosis
Increased indirect bili most are fine; it is physiologic but look at Coombs test
Coombs test isoimmunization; if positive have Rh or ABO incompatablility
ABO incompatability mom is O because has anti a and anti b and baby is either a or b
If coombs was negative measure Hb next - if Hb high, baby is polycythemic (tomato)
causes of high Hb twin transfusion, maternal-fetal transfusion, delayed cord clamping, small for gest age
If Hb low look at reticulocyte count - if normal, there is nothing wrong with the RBC and high bili due to cephalohematoma, high enterohepatic circulation, infreq stool, bowel obstr, neonatal asphyxia (no heart beat)
If reticulcytes high ask hematologist to look at smear
characteristic smear cells spherocytosis (abnormal, rupture in spleen)
how is spherocytosis dx? family hx of anemia
nonspecific smear cells G6PD deficiency (causing the increased indirect bili)
risks for hyperbili -born before 38 wks -sibling w/jaundice -mother exclusively breastfeeding - causes excess hormones to be metabolized by immature liver -visibly jaundice at <24 hrs
risk for hypoglycemia small for gest age
risk for hypoglycemia diabetic moms
risk for hypoglycemia premie, postmatures, stressed infants
hypoglycemia symptoms may be asymptomatic
lumbar puncture differentiates between sepsis and meningitis
transplacental bacterial infections syphilis, lyme, TORCH
m/c cause of cerebral palsy maternal infections while preg due to cytokines
number 1 etiology of sepsis group B strep (women are colonized in vag flora)
early onset sepsis types I and II; prevented by IV ABX to mom & screenings
late onset sepsis type III; presents as pneumonia and you die
respiratory distress syndrome most freq cause of resp distress in newborn; results from lack of surfactant
xray of respiratory distress syndrome ground glass appearance
tx resp distress syndrome tx like baby has GroupB strep because the xray looks the same
most common pneumonia Group B strep
Crack/cocaine use 3rd leading cause of birth defects assoc with mental retardation
Crack cocaine use clinical findings microcephaly, short palpebral fissures, flat philtrum, thin vermillian border, migcrognathia, low set ears
crack cocaine assoc findings intrauterine growth retardation, prematurity, lethargic, hypertonic, tremors,increased CNS injuries
Heroin&Methadone infants go through withdrawal; with methadone symptoms are more severe and longer - irritable, tremors, seizures, high-pitched cry
barbiturates symptoms delayed; due to the slow metabolism & excretion by the immature liver
opiods increased risk for resp distress & seizures
leading cause of death in 1st yr of life after newborn period SIDS; most common between 2-6mos
cows milk based formula brands enfamil, similac, goodstart
cows milk based formula protein source skim milk (cow)
cows milk based formula fat source soy, coconut, safflower oils
cows milk based formula carb source lactose
Lactose the sugar in breastmilk is lactose so you cant be lactose intolerant at birth
1 kg 2.2lbs
1 meter 39.37 in
greatest factor correlating with the development of obesity presence of a TV in a childs bedroom
marasmus severe state of caloric deprivation
marasmus exam failure to gain weight; distended or flat ab, muscle atrophy, hypotonia, edema, hypothermia
kwashiorkor inadequate protein intake with almost normal caloric intake
kwashiorkor exam **edema, diarrhea -lethargy, hyperactivity, distended ab, skin rash, decrease hair coloration, anemia

hypertonic dehydration deficit over 48hrs Na 158-170
hypertonic dehydration deficit over 72 hrs Na 171-183
hypertonic dehydration deficit over 96 hrs Na181-196
hypertonic dehydration maintenance keep same
renal failure/no urine output deficit remains same
maintenance is oliguric half normal maintenance
K replacement cant give until urine output has been established
m/c cause cerebral palsy outside of the neonatal period head injuries secondary to abuse
2-3 yr old sexual abuse if play takes on aspects of shame, secrecy and obsession
3-4 yr old sexual abuse if have a clear focus on sexual intercourse red flag
masturbation normal in 2-4 yrs
