Dont go overboard on vaccine schedules and developmental

milestones. You can sink a lot of time into that for little to no benefit
o You should know a couple of big milestones per age group.

Risk factors for neurological damage from hyperbilirubinemia

1. Hypoalbuminemia- Having a decreased albumin, means there will be more
free unconjugated bilirubin which would normally bind to albumin. More free
UCG bili-->free bili in body which can easily cross BBB to cause neurological
2. Neonatal sepsis: Sepsis makes the BBB more crossable, and as such, there
is an increased chance for neurological damage in such infants
3. Metabolic acidosis decreases bilirubin binding, and as such, this free bili
can cause an increase in neurological damage.

Choanal Atresia
- Blocked posterior nostrils on one or both sides due to congenital septum.
Feedings by mouth are either difficult or impossible b/c infant would have to
breathe through their mouth. Crying makes respiration better b/c they use
their mouths Surgery opens the airways.

When to not breastfeed

women undergoing cancer tx.

Qualitative test used in simple cases of vaginal bleeding

Symptomatic congenital disease

- Occurs when a mother has a primary CMV infection in the 1st trimester of
pregnancy-->death of baby

Asymptomatic congenital disease

- Occurs in the event of reactivation of CMV infection during pregnancy,
maternal IgG passes transplacentally, protecting the infant from serious

Phenobarb on bili
- Phenobarb--> UGDP enzyme--> conjugation of bilirubin-->
unconjugated bilirubin. Using phenobarb can help neonatal jaundice

Beck's triad
- Test set for cardiac tamponade: BP, muffled heart sounds over
pericardium, distended neck veins

Scarlet fever and tx

nasal mucosa composed of large blood vessels and fibrous tissue; only seen
in adolescent males***

Biliary Atresia
- light colored stools, hepatomegaly, increased direct hyperbilirubin (direct
Direct hyperbilirubinemia (>2) is an indication for evaluating neonatal
jaundice even if the infant seems normal otherwise

Crigler Najjar
- Absence of UDGP causing an increase in indirect bilirubin. These infants
present in the first 24 hrs and die within the 1st yr of life
(Gilbert's syndrome-milder form of this)

Whooping cough
- Coughing spells lasting 20-30mns. These spells are so severe that they can
cause rectal prolapse, epistaxis, or even pneumothoraces
-May worsen w/ eating/drinking cold liquids
