Hello Allnurses community,
I had an experience that I thought I'd share. I have practiced OB nursing in our hospital for two because of a lack of nurses in that area. The thought of coding a neonate has always terrified me, and it finally happened a couple days ago. It was a scheduled repeat C-section with no risk factors other than advanced maternal age. The neonate was nonvigorous and we began NRP protocol. He had no resps and a HR 60. Two sets of 15 compressions and bagging brought him around, much to the relief of all involved.
Now meeting my greatest fear, I am finally comfortable with OB. I laugh in the face of double and triple charting- hahaha! Does anyone else what to share an "aha!" moment?
