EXPECTANT MOTHERS WITH CORONAS MAY BE AT RISK OF PREMATURE BIRTH

Turkey Medicals member and Head of the Department of Child Health and diseases of the Faculty of Medicine of Cukurova University and member of the Board of Directors of the Turkish Neonatological Society Professor Dr. “However, the risk of premature birth of these pregnant women is high and development retardation can be seen in the baby in the womb,” was said.

It was stated that the corona virus, which affected the world, had different effects according to age groups. Chairman of Department of Child Health and Diseases of the Faculty of Medicine in Turkey and member of the Board of Directors of the Turkish Neonatological Society Prof. Dr. NN stated that the luckiest group in this regard is newborns, because every pregnant woman can be a carrier, a potential corona is infected, and every baby that will be born may also be infected with the virus, as well as an approach should be taken to take precautions. 1 year after the outbreak reminded the professor Dr. NN noted that in this process, there are no serious problems in newborns that they monitor both in Turkey and in International Studies and in their own hospitals.

BABY HAS GROWTH RETARDATION

But pregnant women caught in Covid-19 carry some risks, the professor noted Dr. “Pregnant women with Corona virus have a greater risk of premature birth. It can also lead to growth retardation in the baby in the womb. When babies of pregnant women infected with the corona virus are born, signs such as fever, cough, respiratory distress are seen. The need for further treatment in intensive care is less common in newborn babies than in other age groups. We’ve only lost one of the newborn babies we’ve ever watched. This baby was lost not only because of corona, but also because of a metabolic disease that was on the ground. When we monitor babies born to Corona-infected mothers, we largely discharge them without the need for treatment. But it is not yet known how newborns will be affected in the Advanced period, as there are problems such as clots in the Advanced period in adults, heart effects,” he said.

THEY ARE ISOLATED IN INCUBATORS

Pregnant women are given routine tests throughout the process, said Prof. Dr. added:

“If the pregnant woman has a contact, an approach is taken according to her, and those who participate in childbirth take protective measures according to her. When the baby is born with a suspected corona virus, protective measures continue again, and these babies are isolated in the intensive care unit, not in an open bed. As if it were positive until the Test came out, the measures continue. And when it comes back positive, it’s monitored according to whether it’s a finding or not. If there is a finding, the necessary supportive treatments for the virus are being done. In a newborn, the infection occurs when it passes through the birth canal. Since those who enter labor have already taken protective measures, transmission from them is not expected very much. But it is also necessary to pay attention to this during the transplantation of babies.”

NEWBORNS TO BE TRANSPORTED BY PRIVATE AMBULANCES

Especially in the process of transporting babies with respiratory support, special ambulances in Turkey and equipment should be activated, the professor said Dr. said, ” these babies should be transported with a closed special transport incubator. In fact, the spread should also be prevented by covering the head so that it remains outside when moving. For example, if respiratory support is to be performed, all of them, including the breathing tube placed in the baby’s airway, must be special. The ambulance should also be disinfected after those incubators have landed. Newborns will now be transported by private ambulances. About this, there are studies conducted by the Ministry of Health and Turkish Neonatological Society. The training of the transport team is also continuing. At the same time, we are talking about the need to pay attention to the transport of babies with Covid,” was said.
