  • neonatal
  • Low-birth-weight and very-low-birth-weight infants require special care and support, preferably in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), until sufficient weight is gained and the infants have matured and are able to thrive without elaborate support systems. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The manual covers issues of diagnosis and treatment of main physiological and pathological conditions in infants during the neonatal period. (zavantag.com)
  • 135. Most common cause of neonatal respiratory distress in full term/postmature infants - Meconium aspiration 136. (medic4arab.com)
  • preterm birth occurs in 7% to 11% of pregnancies but is responsible for 85% of neonatal deaths in normally formed infants who do not have any congenital anomalies [ 3 ]. (scielo.org)
  • Infants who receive prophylactic protein-free synthetic surfactant have a decreased risk of pneumothorax, a decreased risk of pulmonary interstitial emphysema and a decreased risk of neonatal mortality. (51digg.info)
  • The cocaine-exposed infants had smaller head circumferences at birth, spent more time in the neonatal intensive care unit, and had a greater incidence of periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhages. (miami.edu)
  • Behavior
  • Infant Behavior and Development, 3 , 253-264. (miami.edu)
  • Affective behavior and weight changes among hospitalized failure to thrive infants. (miami.edu)
  • The affective behavior and weight change of nonorganic failure-to-thrive, organic failure-to -thrive, and control infants were compared across their hospitalization. (miami.edu)
  • temperature
  • The infant can be placed in an open bassinet after the nurse is assured that the baby is not experiencing cold stress and can maintain his or her body temperature. (testbankgo.eu)
  • LPI infants should have their temperature checked every 3 to 4 hours, depending on need and agency policy. (testbankgo.eu)
  • If the infant cannot maintain normal temperature they should be placed on a radiant warmer or in an incubator. (testbankgo.eu)
  • responses
  • Among the failure-to -thrive infants, positive responses to stimulation at the initial assessment were related to weight loss across the hospitalization, while positive responses to the same stimulation at the middle assessment were related to weight gain. (miami.edu)
  • Surfactant
  • Endogenous production of phospholipase A 2 has recently been identified in the lungs of infants with MAS and is associated with upregulation of inflammatory mediators, direct injury to the alveolar cell membrane, airway constriction, and surfactant catabolism. (mhmedical.com)
  • Surfactant prevents the alveoli from collapsing each time the infant exhales, thus reducing the work of breathing. (testbankgo.eu)
  • Prophylactic intratracheal administration of protein-free synthetic surfactant to infants at risk of developing IRDS has been demonstrated to improve clinical outcome. (51digg.info)
  • risk
  • The high-risk male infants received more stimulation during sucking periods but were also observably more disorganized in their feeding than other groups, suggesting that the mother's sensitivity cannot be assessed independently of the infant's responsivity. (miami.edu)
  • care
  • A. Provide immediate care to infant. (brilliantnurse.com)
  • The nurse as the support person and teacher is responsible for shaping the environment and making the care giving responsive to the needs of both the parents and the infant. (testbankgo.eu)
  • Kangaroo care (a method of providing skin to skin contact between infants and their parents) should be encouraged. (testbankgo.eu)
  • development
  • A greater number of the RDS infants received low motor scores as opposed to low mental scores, suggesting that intervention efforts with this group might focus on the development of early sensorimotor skills. (miami.edu)
  • time
  • 4. An infant girl is preterm and on a respirator with intravenous lines and much equipment around her when her parents come to visit for the first time. (testbankgo.eu)
  • Bonding needs to occur, and this can be fostered by encouraging the parents to spend time with the infant. (testbankgo.eu)
  • parents
  • It is important to keep the parents informed about the infants progression, but the nurse needs to be honest with the explanations. (testbankgo.eu)
  • young
  • An infant (from the Latin word infans , meaning "unable to speak" or "speechless") is the more formal or specialised synonym for " baby ", the very young offspring of a human . (wikipedia.org)
