unique baby names

Since December 2019, the number of new coronavirus infections in China has continued to increase. From February 5th to 6th, 2020, China has reported three confirmed cases of neonatal infections. The immature development of the newborn's autoimmune function has further worried the newborn parents. What can we do with the coronavirus?

The biggest difference between the coronavirus infection and the common cold and the common cold:

It is found that breathing gradually becomes difficult, such as breathing too fast or too slow, too deep or too shallow Infants or newborns showed open mouth breathing, wheezing, moaning, nostril instigation, nodded breathing, and even appeared three concave signs of lips and complexion changing breathing. Seeing the above symptoms, you need to see a doctor immediately!

This shows that the newborn's breathing problem needs special attention!

Now a days labs uses intelligent optical fiber sensing technology to monitor the baby's real-time breathing frequency. When the baby's breathing frequency is too high or low, the smart mattress and the bound APP will send an alarm reminder. In addition, it also provide sound and temperature reports of the baby's sleeping environment. Make newborn parents aware of newborn breathing problems earlier!

2. Newborn parents, take good home protection

  • Monitor the abnormal breathing of the newborn: Monitor the breathing status of the newborn, pay attention to the changes in the breathing of the newborn, because it is difficult for the parents to detect the breathing difficulties of the newborn, especially In sleep!
  • Refuse to visit, stay away from others: 14-day incubation period of the coronavirus, even longer incubation period, and even more asymptomatic patients, stay away from the crowd, reducing external contact is the safest protection for the baby.
  • Open windows regularly for ventilation. When ventilating the bedroom where the baby is located, move the baby to another room with a suitable temperature.
  • Daily necessities and rubbish should be cleaned and disinfected in a timely manner. Newborn necessities should be separately washed and sterilized. Family daily necessities should also be dedicated to special people and set up with special lidded trash cans to clean up every day. In addition, use for items that are frequently touched Spray disinfection with chlorine-containing disinfectant is very necessary.
  • Body temperature monitoring. If the newborn's body temperature rises, go to a pediatric specialist hospital as much as possible, and measure the body temperature at least twice a day. If fever, poor milk, shortness of breath and other symptoms occur, contact the designated hospital for infection prevention and control in time.
  • It is not recommended that newborns wear masks. The lung volume of newborns is very small. In fact, children under 3 years of age are not recommended to wear masks.

Department of Neonatal Medicine, chief physician and administrative director of the Department of Neonatal Medicine, two experts pointed out that newborns themselves are a special group of immunocompromised people. Many of their characteristics are different from infants and older children More different from adults. Novice parents who are new mothers and fathers do not need anxiety and panic, and effectively protect their newborn babies.

The duration of this war without smoke is still uncertain. For newborn babies, the psychological status of parents, especially caregivers, is equally important for epidemic prevention and control

The most hard-core neonatal protection is here

On February 26, a 9-month-old baby in USA was diagnosed with coronavirus pneumonia. It can be seen that for the coronavirus pneumonia, children are not uncomfortable, infants and young children are at high risk of respiratory infections! But there is no need to panic. Next, let us understand how to carry out correct and effective neonatal protection?

Newborn coronavirus infection routes include:

Contact transmission and droplet transmission, hospital acquired infection.

Contact transmission and droplet transmission, hospital acquired infection.

  • Those diagnosed with maternal or highly suspected infection;
  • The pregnant woman is in close contact with the family member who is diagnosed or highly suspected of being infected;
  • The family caregivers after the birth of the newborn have confirmed and highly suspected infections.

The clinical manifestations of neonates, especially premature infants, lack specificity and may not cause fever. Once there is an epidemiological history, poor mental response, poor milk intake, and repeated vomiting should be promptly sought after.

How should newborns born to mothers diagnosed or suspected to be infected be isolated?

After the delivery, the doctor should conduct a timely health assessment of the born baby. Newborns who are generally in good condition should be taken home immediately. They should be separated for at least 14 days at home. It is best for the mother not to contact the baby. Consider breastfeeding after the mother is cured; Less then 34 weeks of premature babies or abnormal children after birth need to enter the isolation ward for isolation, and carry out necessary inspections and etiological sampling, pathogen analysis and corresponding treatment.

It is not sure whether the newborn will be infected or become a source of infection. Prevention and control measures should be taken during house isolation: isolation in a single room, minimization of caregivers, regular window opening in the room (30 minutes), washing hands frequently, Disinfect the objects (high temperature or 75% alcohol) etc. Observe closely the changes of the newborn's body temperature, milking, breathing, jaundice, etc.

Do newborns with no history of contact need to check for coronavirus infections, and how to protect them?

If the newborn has no history of contact, no special discomfort, no routine investigation is required, and normal newborn care is required.

  • It is not suitable for newborns to wear masks. Parents should take the initiative to wear masks. When coughing or sneezing, they should completely cover their mouth and nose with tissues (if they are too late, they should cover their mouths with their arms Nose, wash your hands thoroughly, and disinfect your arms), and immediately throw the used paper towels into an enclosed trash bin, and wash your hands with running water. Don't kiss the child, don't exhale or breathe to the child, don't use the mouth to test the milk temperature.
  • The conditional households should turn on the air purifier and ultraviolet disinfection at regular intervals. The households with restricted conditions take turns to ventilate each room 2 to 3 times a day, and open the windows for 30 minutes each time. Move the child to another room, take good heat preservation measures to avoid the child getting cold during ventilation.
  • Keep the floor clean and dry, and avoid moist corners to avoid the growth of viral bacteria. If the family has 84 disinfectant containing chlorine disinfectant, you can configure it according to (84 disinfectant 10ml + 1000ml water), drag the floor 1 ~ 2 times. If the family has a suspected or confirmed parent, the disinfection of the used items or the room where they have lived should increase the concentration of 84 disinfectant, and increase the original solution of 84 disinfectant from 10ml to 20-40ml and add it to 1000 ~ 2000ml. Families who have purchased things out of the condition can use disinfectant for secondary disinfection and reuse.
