I posted this on student nursing, but thought maybe those of you in this specialty might have more ideas on resources that I can find (hopefully online):
I am doing an assignment on full newborn assessment. One of the things I need to do is describe certain reflexes and what an abnormal response could be caused by. For example, the absence of the Landau reflex can indicate cerebral palsy or gross motor retardation, and the absence of the Magnet reflex can indicate spinal cord damage.
Out of the 13 that I have there are three that I can not find what absence of the reflex would indicate. If anyone has any resources, can you please post? This assignment is due Wednesday morning, 11-13.
Here are the ones I am lacking (I have the definitions already, and how to perform the assessment):
I just need to know what absence would indicate. Thanks for your help!
