Question...I am studying for my OB exam and I am confused now. I know as soon as the baby emerges, you suction the mouth first and then the nose. This prevents the baby from gasping the fluid when suctioning the nose. Now, if the baby had meconium stain, based on the color of the amniotic fluid, is the suctioning the opposite? Do you suction the nose then the mouth? If this is mec stained, do you use a bulb syringe or an actual suctioning cath for deep suctioning?
Thanks in advance for any assistance
