    Transcript

    00:01 So now let's review all the important points that we just made as we talked about the assessments that are performed in the labor suite or in the OR immediately after delivery.

    00:11 So, in a nutshell, there are two umbilical arteries and one vein.

    00:16 There are three shunts responsible for circulating oxygenated blood away from the lungs and the liver, and these close after birth.

    00:25 They are the ductus venosus, the foramen ovale and the ductus arteriosus.

    00:30 APGAR scores are made up of appearance - remember that's color, pulse, grimace, activity, and respirations.

    00:38 APGAR scores are assigned at 1 and 5 minutes of life.

    00:42 An APGAR score of 7 or greater indicates that the newborn is transitioning well.

    00:49 Infants may lose heat via conduction, convection, radiation, or evaporation.

    00:57 Any baby that's born to a birthing person who has diabetes, gestational diabetes, or an infant who's LGA should have a glucose test immediately after birth.

    01:08 And finally, Vitamin K activates clotting factors in the liver while Erythromycin protects the eyes from potential infections.

    01:18 You did it!
