Summary, etc.:
Part 1: Physical Examination of the Neonate: This program demonstrates immediate assessment of the newly-born with an emphasis on criteria that confirm the neonate is in stable condition. It begins by illustrating how to perform a systematic, detailed examination that includes checking vital signs and evaluating the head and neck, abdomen, extremities, and genitals. In addition, recognizing normal variations among newborns is explored. Finally, methods utilized to prevent dangerous heat loss are described. Part 2: Gestational Age Assessment of the Neonate: This program demonstrates how to determine the gestational age of a newborn based on physical and neuromuscular findings. It illustrates how to compute the findings to distinguish those infants who are born at term from those who are preterm or postterm. It also demonstrates how to correlate gestational age with the size of the infant and to identify those infants who are small, large or appropriate in size for their gestational age. In addition, this program illustrates procedures such as eye care, intramuscular injections, and obtaining capillary blood.
