Here Are A Few Danger Signs In Newborns And Young Infants

Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Nov 25, 2019

Your newborn is going through several variations in getting used to this new living (in the outside world). However, this change always goes well, but sometimes there are certain alarming symptoms that you should watch for (with newborns). Whenever in an emergency, open the airway and give oxygen by nasal prongs if the newborn is in severe respiratory discomfort, hypoxaemic or cyanosed. Give mask ventilation with room air or oxygen, if there is gasping, apnoea, or respiratory rate too slow. Give penicillin or ampicillin and gentamicin. If unconscious, shaking or dozing, check blood glucose. Every kid is different. If you see any of the signs that are worrisome to you, then trust your knowledge of your kid and call your child's healthcare provider as early as possible.
