Staff nurse Questions Most important MCQs Child health nursing
Respiratory Distress Syndrome

Respiratory distress syndrome, also known as hyaline membrane disease, occurs almost exclusively in premature infants. The incidence and severity of respiratory distress syndrome are related inversely to the gestational age of the newborn infant.

The use of antenatal steroids to enhance pulmonary maturity

Appropriate resuscitation facilitated by placental transfusion and immediate use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for alveolar recruitment

Early administration of surfactant

The use of gentler modes of ventilation, including early use of "bubble" nasal CPAP to minimize damage to the immature lungs

Supportive therapies, such as the diagnosis and management of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), fluid and electrolyte management, trophic feeding and nutrition, and the use of prophylactic fluconazole

These therapies have also resulted in the survival of extremely premature infants, some of who continue to be ill with complications of prematurity.

A percentile a measure used in statistics indicating the value below which a given percentage of observations in a group of observations fall. For example, the 20th percentile is the value below which 20% of the observations may be found.

The term percentile and the related term percentile rank are often used in the reporting of scores from norm-referenced tests. For example, if a score is at the 86th percentile, where 86 is the percentile rank, it is equal to the value below which 86% of the observations may be found
Foremilk and hind milk

Foremilk and hindmilk are not different types of milk–they are only terms that refer to  milk at the start

or end of a feeding. Foremilk : the milk at the beginning of a feeding; hindmilk : milk at the end of a feeding,
which has a higher fat content than the milk at the beginning of that particular feeding.

The change is very gradual. The fat content of the milk is determined by the emptiness of the breast - the less milk in the breast, the higher the fat content

Allow the baby to finish the first breast before offering the second (instead of switching sides while baby is actively breastfeeding).
