The most important step in treating shock is to identify its cause and treat it appropriately. The next step is to identify any problems that may impair cardiac function and correct them. Respiratory support should be given at whatever level the infant requires in order to maintain adequate oxygenation and ventilation.
Cardiovascular support may require the use of inotropic agents such as dopamine, dobutamine, or epinephrine. When treating hypovolemic shock, the goal is to improve the circulating blood volume by providing crystalloids or blood products. When there is not an acute loss of blood, normal saline and lactated ringers are appropriate volume expanders. When there is an acute loss of blood, normal saline may be used for volume expansion until packed red blood cells (PRBCs) or whole blood is available.
Again, when treating cardiogenic shock, the focus of treatment is the underlying cause that is affecting the functioning of the heart. Treatment of septic shock may involve a combination of hypovolemic and cardiogenic shock treatments.
Fluid boluses may be needed as the infant's fluid shifts from the intravascular space to the extravascular space. Cape Fear Valley Health System, Training and Development Department, is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the North Carolina Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation. Cephalhematoma is a collection of blood between the surface of a cranial bone and the periosteal membrane. Infant in good breastfeeding position : tummy-to-tummy, with ear, shoulder, and hip aligned.
LATCH was created to provide a systematic method for breastfeeding assessment and charting.

X-linked frameshift mutation deletes the dystrophin gene and accelerates the breakdown of muscle.
No melanin which leads to skin cancer due to autosomal recessive tyrosinase deficiency or defective tyrosine transporter. Common auto-recessive defect of renal tubular amino acid transporter of cysteine and others in the proximal convoluted tubule. Auto-recessive blocked degradation of branched amino acids Ile, Leu, and Val from low alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase (B1). GLYCOGEN STORAGE DISEASES - abnormal glycogen metabolism resulting in glycogen accumulation.
LYSOSOMAL STORAGE DISEASE - deficiency in one of many lysosomal enzymes resulting in accumulation of metabolic product.
X-linked recessive alpha-glactosidase deficiency resulting in ceramide trihexoside accumulation.
Auto-rec Sphingomyelinase deficiency with accumulating Sphingomyelin causing neurodegeneration, cherry-red spot on the macula, and foam cells. AR deficiency of alpha-L-iduronidase leading to accumulation of heparan sulfate and dermatan sulfate causing developmental delay, gargoylism, airway obstruction, corneal clouding, & hepatosplenomegaly. XR deficient Iduronate sulfatase with accumulation of Heparan sulfate and dermatan sulfate. AR deficiency in lipoptoein lipase or altered apolipoprotein resulting in increased levels of chylomicrons, TG, and cholesterol.
AD absent or low levels of LDL receptors causing atherosclerosis, tendon xanthomas, and corneal arcus. Immediate Baby Care Airway - Clean mouth and nose Thermoregulation - Warmth APGAR Gross assessment Identification Bonding. Some cardiac problems may be found such as a floppy mitral valve, aortic incompetence, and dissecting aortic aneurysms.

Results in high NADH resulting in creation of lactate (acidosis) and malate and lots of fatty acid synthesis. Homocysteine will be found in urine and result in mental retardation, osteoporosis, tall stature, kyphosis. The excess cysteine in urine precipitates as hexagonal crystals and renal staghorn calculi. There is severe fasting hypoglycemia, lots of glycogen built up in the liver and hepatomegaly. So, there is a lot of glycogen in the muscle which gives you cramps and myoglobinuria with exercise. Patient has peripheral neuropathy of hands and feet, angiokeratomas, and cardiovascular and renal disease. Manifests with pancreatitis, hepatosplenomegaly, and eruptive xanthomas without a significant risk for atherosclerosis.
Defect causes thick mucus, recurrent infections, nasal polyps, and meconium ileus in newborns. Presents as microcephaly, severe mental retardation, epicanthal folds, and cardiac abnormalities. Auto-recessive or may occur during pregnancy effecting the fetus (microcephaly, heart defects).
Develop Heinz bodies and Bite cells which are RBCs which have precipitate in them and that have been phagocytosed by spleen macrophages.
