NRP - Lesson 1
Terms in this set (18)
About ____ % of newborns will require some assistance to begin regular breathing.
About ____% of newborns will require extensive resuscitation to survive.
True or False: Careful identification of risk factors during pregnancy and labor can identify all babies who will require resuscitation.
Chest compressions and medications are rarely or frequently needed when resuscitating newborns.
Chest compressions and medications are RARELY needed when resuscitating newborns.
Before birth, the alveoli in a baby's lungs are collapsed or expanded and filled with fluid or air.
Before birth, the alveoli in a baby's lungs are EXPANDED and filled with FLUID.
the air that fills the baby's alveoli during normal transition contains ____% oxygen.
The air in the baby's lungs causes the pulmonary arterioles to relax or constrict so that the oxygen can be absorbed from the alveoli and distributed to all organs.
Oxygen in the air causes pulmonary arterioles to RELAX
If a baby does not begin breathing in response to stimulation, you should assume she is in ____ apnea and you should provide ____.
You should assume SECONDARY APNEA and you should provide POSITIVE-PRESSURE VENTILATION.
If a baby enters the stage of secondary apnea, her heart rate will rise or fall, and her blood pressure will rise or fall.
the baby's heart rate will FALL, and her blood pressure will FALL.
Restoration of adequate ventilation usually will result in a rapid, gradual, or slow improvement in heart rate?
Ventilation usually will result in a RAPID improvement of heart rate.
Resuscitation should or should not be delayed until the 1-minute Apgar score is available?
Resuscitation SHOULD NOT be delayed until the 1-minute Apgar score is available.
Premature babies may present unique challenges during resuscitation because of
A. Fragile brain capillaries that may bleed
B. Lungs deficient in surfactant, making ventilation difficult
C. Poor temperature control
D. Higher likelihood of an infection
E. All of the above
ALL OF THE ABOVE
Every delivery should be attended by at least ___ skilled person whose only responsibility is the management of the newborn.
Every delivery should be attended by at least 1 skilled person
If a high-risk delivery is anticipated, at least ___ skilled persons, whose only responsibility is resuscitation and the management of the baby, should be present at the delivery.
At least 2 skilled persons should be present at a high-risk delivery.
When a depressed newborn is anticipated at a delivery, resuscitation equipment should or should not be unpacked and ready for use.
Equipment SHOULD be unpacked if a newborn is anticipated to be depressed at delivery.
A baby who was meconium stained and not vigorous at birth had meconium suctioned from the trachea and continued to require supplemental oxygen to keep oxygen saturation as measured by pulse oximetry > 85%. As soon as the heart rate is above 100 bpm, the baby should recive routine or post-resuscitation care?
Since the baby required continuous supplemental oxygen, he should receive POST-RESUSCITATION care.
When twins are expected, there should be ____ people present in the delivery room to form the resuscitation team.
There should be 4 people present in the delivery room to form the resuscitation team prepared to resuscitate, 2 for each baby.
APGAR score stands for_____?
activity - muscle tone
pulse - heart rate >100
grimace - reflex irritability
appearance - color
