Answers

Q1 An orogastric catheter should be inserted only after 5 minutes of bag and mask ventilation during newborn resuscitation

Answer: FALSE. It is 2 minutes


Q2 An ETT has just been inserted via the oral route for a 2 kg baby. It should empirically be taped at 8 cm level at the lip

Answer: TRUE


Q3 Chest compression cannot be performed on an infant who is being ventilated with a bag and mask

Answer: FALSE. This is often necessary in the event that the infant is not (yet) intubated


Q4 Diaphragmatic hernia should be suspected in an infant who has respiratory distress at birth and a scaphoid abdomen

Answer: TRUE


Q5 All self- inflating bags can be used reliably to provide free flow oxygen to a newborn

Answer: FALSE. The valve assembly has to be checked, an oxygen reservoir has to be connected and O2 flow must be at least 5L/min


Q6 A baby is born flat. He has no breathing effort and his heart rate is less than 40 per minute. You should immediately apply cardiac compression and oxygen by face mask to the baby

Answer: FALSE. Bag and mask oxygen or intubation should first be applied


Q7

A mother in term labour is being monitored on the cardiotocogram. Just before the baby is born a flat CTG (with no heart rate) is detected. This baby does not need to be resuscitated as he is already a stillbirth

Answer: FALSE. Resuscitation should be attempted for all just diagnosed ‘fresh still births’


Q8 During resuscitation of a 28 weeks’ gestation 1 kg baby his heart rate is slow to pick up and colour is poor. He should be given 10 mmol of iv NaHCO3

Answer: FALSE. The dose is 2 mmol (ie 4ml of 4.2% NaHCO3)


Q9 A 3 kg baby will likely require a size 2.5 endotracheal tube for intubation

Answer: FALSE. The correct size is 3.5


Q10

It is dangerous to use 100% oxygen during resuscitation of a 30 week gestation baby in the labour room

Answer: FALSE. 100% oxygen can be used for resuscitation in the labour room whatever the gestation


Q11

You are the nurse working in the labour room. A baby has just been born with thick meconium stained liquor and is not crying. Your immediate action should be to flick the sole of his foot to stimulate him to cry

Answer: FALSE. Direct tracheal suction should first be done and baby should not be made to cry


Q12 An emergency LSCS at 32 weeks for abruption is being performed. A 1.5 kg baby is delivered and found to be in hypovolaemic shock. Umbilical venous catheterisation should be performed quickly in the OT for easy administration of fluids

Answer: TRUE . This is the most effective way of administering fluid volumes
