Care of the ears
Caesarean section is a surgical procedure that is performed when for some reason can not be natural childbirth, with many situations that trigger this surgery, one of these cases are twin pregnancies. Up to two babies can be born vaginally without any problems, always with great control at all times and depending on the weight of babies. When it comes to three or more children generally opt obstetricians caesarean section directly.
Also recommended are the intervention of this type if it meets other conditions such as: if the first baby (the one that plays out before) has a breech or transverse.
If one of the babies weighing less than 1,800 grams (or more than one) because they may be weak and unable to stand in a good way for a natural birth. Or if the weight of children differs by more than 500 grams.
But they may also be raised during childbirth types of barriers that prevent their proper implementation interrupted at one point and ending in a caesarean unexpected by all, we must be prepared.
It is even possible that after the first baby is born, the obstetrician should use to extract the second baby by caesarean section, if the difficulties are just facing the second delivery.
The important thing is that we must be prepared both doctors and parents to cope with a cesarean section may be needed and that parents know that this can happen suddenly without being pre-planned, it is natural for the sake of the children who are born and after that this happens everything will be fine and will be quick recovery of the happy mother.
An important part to capture sounds and balance
* The first thing to know is that the ears do not require a thorough cleaning. So applicators and swabs are not recommended. If you enter could cause damage to the eardrum.
* Stick to clean your baby’s ears externally. Use a wax that will surround the ear, this will help form a plug for washing.
* To choose the wax, keep in mind that should be light yellow and smooth.
* The wax will serve as a cap, a wax incorrectly can cause decreases in the infant’s hearing.
* Asea ears with a cloth moistened with soapy water.
* If during the wash water droplets will fall to hear your baby, try cleaning them with the edge of your towel.
* Within the ear, the hair met the absorption process of water gets in by accident.
The best chance to protect the baby’s ears is when you have not yet discharged from the hospital. Minors must be under constant review the first three months of life, because they can develop hearing problems. While few babies that come into the world with these types of conditions in the United States, one in every thousand children born deaf.
The development of language skills typically appears during the first three months and decreased hearing acuity may interfere with the healthy evolution of language, social and emotional growth.
Currently, there are various methods for identifying aural discomfort. Some children’s diseases are associated with risk factors such as family history and low birth weight. However, these criteria fail by 50 or 70% at the time of diagnosis of hearing difficulties.
Recent technological advances are aimed at increasing prevention methods. There are two universal procedures: otoacoustic emissions and audiometry. The review of otoacoustic emissions measured sounds inaudible, low, occurring in the inner ear. This demonstration can be applied to newborns before leaving the hospital.
Children who do not successfully pass the test of otoacoustic emissions should undergo a hearing test to measure brain responses, which evaluate the functions of the auditory nerve and parts of the brain involved in the audition process.
While audiometry is an expensive method, which requires much time and have technical difficulties, recent research shows that the otoacoustic emission tests are fast, inexpensive and noninvasive, to be applied to newborns from the outset.
