- Apr 30 by JustBeachyNurseWhat do you think?
- Apr 30 by gonnaB37nursedocI would guess "A"
- Apr 30 by The DreamerB, because it would likely cause a hematoma and a pool of blood in the scalp. At least that's my "educated guess".
- Apr 30 by pumpkinspice555It's B!
- Apr 30 by Aleska25I would said its "B"
- Apr 30 by MendedHeartThe key word thats standing out to me is "physiologic jaundice"
Differentiation of physiological vs. Pathological is key and im a little stumped here
- Apr 30 by MendedHeartI thinks its A because the baby will start breast feeding much sooner and that is a primary cause of physiological jaundice?
- May 2 by Mandy0728All I can say is B, C and D were all a part of my Labor with my son & he came out jaundice...I am B+, he was vacuumed out and also I had an epidural..
