Newborns are one of the most special times in a person’s life. They are delicate and vulnerable, and you would not want any other person to experience them,
So, it is very important to pay attention to your newborn while they are still alive. The required care for newborns can be confusing at first, but this article will help you know what to do if your baby cannot be saved.
Many families use metamorphosis as a standard reference for when to prepare a newborn for death. This process can range from using a table-top doll or computer software, either before or after delivery.
This process is called transposition or preparation in some languages.
The child’s parents should always be involved
The child’s parents should always be involved in the resuscitation of their child, even for a short time. This is the reason for newborn resuscitation.
While adults have advanced training in critical care, newborns require special training and education. Newborns are not fully developed and have limited knowledge when it comes to medical issues.
If the adult does not have a clear understanding of the disease process or if they are unfamiliar with the pediatric body and what issues may indicate readiness for discharge, then the child can be left alone to recover.
The adult should always have access to a phone or computer so they can provide aid if needed. This is important because although few adults have this skill set, adults with computer skills can provide aid in revising information on children.
The child’s permission should be sought
Children do not have criminal records. They do not owe anyone anything, and they do not need your help if they are past the point of wanting to be healthy.
If you would like to take care of my child, you should seek the consent of the parents before performing any procedure on your child. This is one of the principles that guide the definitive guidelines for resuscitation of a newborn.
The remaining points in this article discuss specific procedures that may be performed on infants, including: surgical removal of a fetus, extraction and correction of a placenta, and bone marrow transplantation. Many parents feel that these procedures are imperative to improving the health and well-being of their children, but there are some who do not agree with this view.
Only those resuscitation attempts that have a realistic chance of success should be made
This policy limits the opportunities for children to receive care in the immediate aftermath of an emergency.
If the child cannot be transported to an established program or home-based one, then only attempts that have a good chance of success should be made toward re-assignment to parental care.
Making a second attempt at re-assignment to family care or another program with a lower likelihood of success may harm the child and cause psychological damage. It is important that these attempts be made when children are not responding normally and are showing signs of distress.
The process of attempting re-assignment should be fair and honest. Anyone involved in the resuscitation efforts must follow these principles to help make it fair and honest.
The child should be given time to die peacefully without intervention
If the child is unable to breathe or respond to stimuli after those minutes, then intervention begins. An EMT can help guide a family through this process.
Parents and friends are called to assist in the newborn care system. Most people are not medically trained, but they know what happens when a baby dies without treatment. Parents often report that they did not want to give their baby time to die because they were afraid he would be uncomfortable, wouldn’t stay hydrated, and would be unable to catch his breath.
Some areas have implemented training for parents on how to assist their children in the absence of parents, but most regions don’t have this updated training nor guidance anymore. As more people become aware of this ethical principle(s), it will guide more families into the care system.
