Breathing: Newborn Baby Survival Lesson 1
From a warm mother to a whole new world, the first lesson for a newborn baby is breathing.
Because the baby is in the stage of hypertension, although there is a slight breathing movement (preparing for breathing after birth), this “breath” is weak and ineffective. Without real breathing, he will inhale amniotic fluid.
The newborn is delicate and tender. In a world that is completely unfamiliar and facing all kinds of violations and pollution, he has become the most basic function of maintaining life. There is a process that requires the care of mothers.
The first breath of a newborn baby passes through the birth canal. During the complication process, the body temperature is affected by the external temperature, and the oxygen, carbon dioxide, and pH (PH value) in the blood change accordingly. These stimulate the breathing center and naturally regenerate.The child had his first breath.
Obviously, the natural delivery of the mother allows the baby to go through the birth canal, which is very beneficial to the first breath of the newborn.
From the beginning to the beginning, the newborn’s first breath, unlike normal later breaths, is extremely deep.
The traditional way to slap behind the buttocks is not good for the baby’s first deep breath.
Newborn babies breathe in this way. Due to immature development of the respiratory center, the muscles between the ribs of the newborn are weak. The respiration is mainly caused by the upward and downward displacement of the diaphragm.Breathe with chest.
In order to let the newborn baby breathe happily, when handling the umbilical cord, do not use bandages, gauze to ligate the umbilical cord, and do not bind and fix the newborn baby’s abdomen.
When handling the umbilical cord, you can use a small rubber band or umbilical clip to fix the umbilical cord, and then cover it with gauze to make the newborn baby’s abdominal breathing convenient and smooth.
You should know: Newborn baby’s breathing is very shallow, and the breathing frequency is slow and fast.
In the first two weeks of the newborn, breathing is faster, about 40 times per minute. If it is abnormal for more than 60 times, you should consult a doctor in time.
Be careful of apnea: During sleep, the newborn baby’s breathing depth and rhythm are particularly irregular, and even the phenomenon of apnea (within a few seconds), the heart rhythm will be slowed down, but the breathing will be faster and the heart rhythm will immediatelyAlso returned to normal.
Although these are normal phenomena, if the baby’s apnea is slightly longer, a few seconds or more than 20 seconds, it is often the manifestation of the disease: such as neonatal pulmonary membrane disease, there will be prolonged apnea time.
If a newborn has had asphyxia at birth, apnea may also occur during recovery after rescue.
Premature babies are born before their lungs are fully grown, breathing will recover more than normal term babies (but also more than 60 beats per minute), and they are particularly prone to apnea (this is also the case for premature babies after they are born)Or the care unit).
You can rest assured that for newborn babies whose heart rate is particularly fast after birth, reaching 60 beats / min or more, or who have been rescued by suffocation, they are usually placed in a hospital by a conditional hospital for close observation by medical staff, and instruments are available at any time.Monitoring, baby problems can be treated in time.
Looking at the health of the newborn baby during breathing, the newborn sleeps for a long time, crying when he is hungry, and crying when he is wet. It is often difficult for a novice mother to tell his baby’s health from his mental state, which can be trimmed from his breath.The breathing frequency and breathing movements of a newborn baby are such instruments for whether or not they are sick.
Respiratory frequency from normal to accelerated, such as the original 40 times / minute, developed to 60 times / minute, or even 80 times / minute, indicating that the baby has an infection, often a sign of pneumonia.
If it turns to normal soon, it means that the baby is gradually recovering and is recovering.
When there is no guardian equipment, observe the baby’s breathing movements to know if the baby is sick1. Normal breathing should be close to the mouth (except for nasal congestion). If the baby opens his mouth to breathe and his nose flaps, it is a manifestation of accelerated breathing.
2. The cusp between the intercostals or the ribs is flat during normal breathing. If there is a depression, it is abnormal.
3, the breathing of newborn babies is mainly abdominal, if the up and down also fluctuates greatly, or the chest and abdomen show a “seesaw” when breathing, the ups and downs, not parallel up and down, is not normal.
4, there is an adult voice when breathing, as if sighed by being injured, is a manifestation of illness.
If the newborn baby is breathing while Long Qi has the above phenomenon while sleeping, parents should take the baby to the neonatal department of the hospital in time so that the baby can be treated in time.
The vital signs of the newborn baby are very fragile, and the novice mother has no experience. Only careful and careful can make the baby grow up safely and healthily.
