Which of the following techniques should the nurse use to help minimize the pain of the procedure for the newborn? a. Apply a cool pack for 10 min to the heel prior to the puncture.

Request a prescription for IM analgesic. The pain experienced from a heel stick is too brief to warrant risking the adverse effects of parenteral analgesia. c. Use a manual lance blade to pierce the skin. A spring-loaded, automatic puncture device is recommended to minimize pain by ensuring that the depth of the puncture is not too deep, avoiding injury to the newborn. d. Place the newborn skin to skin on the mother's chest. i. MY ANSWER: Placing the newborn skin to skin on the mother's chest is an effective technique to significantly decrease the newborn's pain level and anxiety. The nurse should implement this technique before, during, and after the procedure. 7.

A progesterone serum level helps to determine if a client is pregnant and if the pregnancy is ectopic. c. Lecithin/sphingomyelin (L/S) ratio. Lecithin/sphingomyelin (L/S) ratio is done as a part of an amniocentesis to evaluate fetal lung maturity. d. Maternal Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP).
