Newborn Vital Signs

  1. Hey y'all!

    Hopefully everyone has had a good first week or so of school! This site helped me out quite a bit when I started the program and I'm back for more help now!

    I'm starting my first Maternity clinical tomorrow in the Nursery and need to know the vital signs of a newborn within 1 hour of birth, 6-12 hours after birth, and 12-24 hours after birth. Believe it or not, these are nowhere to be found in my textbook and I am having trouble finding them on the web. Any nurses or students have any suggestions for me where to find this info?

    Look up transitioning the newborn, that should help.
