case study

  1. plzzzz help me to solve this case study

    As you move toward the house, you ask the dispatcher if ALS has responded. You are told the are already en route. when you walk into the room you see the mother on the bed and the father with the telephone cradled on his shoulder as he talks to the dispatcher. the father immediately stands aside, and you and your partner see crowning and realize that the delivery will take place
    any minute you put on gloves and set up the OB kit while getting assessment information from the mother. It is her second delivers but it is 2 weeks early. labor started about an hour ago, and the pains have been more frequent lately and very intense. the water broke just before they called 911. while your partner is obtaining a set of vital signs, the baby starts to deliver. the head comes out and you notice that the umbilical cord is around the baby's neck.
    You are able to slip it over the baby's head, and the baby continues to deliver. The shoulders and the wrest of the baby's body quickly follow.


    1. What immediate care should he provided to the newborn??

    2. What care should your partner be giving to the mother?

    We are happy to help...but you need to help as well...what do you think is important? what would be your FIRST concern? Think ABC's (airway, breathing, circulation). Is the baby crying? Is the baby active? Is the baby warm? of Newborn Health Guidelines (2012).pdf
