3 lon23944_fm.qxd 2/21/06 6:44 PM Page iii About the Authors Marcia L. London Marcia L. London has been able to combine her two greatest passions by being both a nurse caring for children and families, and a teacher for almost 35 years. She received her BSN and school nurse certificate from Plattsburgh State University in Plattsburgh, New York. After graduation, she began her nursing career as a pediatric nurse at St. Luke s Hospital in New York City. She then moved to Pittsburgh, where she began her teaching career. Mrs. London accepted a faculty position at Pittsburgh s Children s Hospital Affiliate Program and received her MSN in pediatrics as a clinical nurse specialist from the University of Pittsburgh. Mrs. London began teaching at Beth-El School of Nursing and Health Science in 1974 after opening the first intensive care nursery at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs. She has served in many administrative and faculty positions at Beth-El, including coordinator for nursing care of children for 32 years. Mrs. London maintains her clinical skills working in an urgent care and after-hours clinic and doing undergraduate pediatric clinical supervision. She obtained her postmaster s neonatal nurse practitioner certificate in 1983 and subsequently developed the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) program and the master s NNP program at Beth-El. She is active nationally in neonatal nursing and was involved in the development of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Educational Program Guidelines. She has contributed five chapters to various neonatal nursing texts. Mrs. London is active in nurse practitioner education in general. She was involved in the revision of the Core Competency for Nurse Practitioners and Curriculum Guidelines for Nurse Practitioner Education, as a member of the Education Committee of the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties and participated as part of the Core Competency Validation Expert Panel. Mrs. London has also pursued her interest in college student learning by taking doctoral classes in higher education administration and adult learning at the University of Denver in Colorado. She feels fortunate to be involved in the education of her future colleagues. Her teaching philosophy is that, with support, students can achieve more than they may initially believe they are capable of achieving. Mrs. London and her husband have two sons and one dog (Reilly, daughter by proxy). Her two sons, Craig and Matthew, are involved in computer informatics, and media arts and animation and are more than willing to give Mom helpful hints. Patricia A. Wieland Ladewig Patricia A. Wieland Ladewig received her BS from the College of Saint Teresa in Winona, Minnesota. After graduation, she worked as a pediatric nurse before joining the U.S. Air Force. After completing her tour of duty, she relocated to Florida, where she accepted a faculty position at Florida State University. There she embraced teaching as her calling. Over the years, she taught at several schools of nursing while earning her MSN in maternalnewborn nursing from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., and her PhD in higher education administration from the University of Denver in Colorado. In addition, she became a women s health nurse practitioner and maintained a part-time clinical practice. In 1988 Dr. Ladewig became the first director of the nursing program at Regis College in Denver and, in 1991, when the college became Regis University, she became dean of the Rueckert-Hartman School for Health Professions. Under her guidance, the Department of Nursing has added a graduate program and the school has added three departments: the Department of Physical Therapy, the Department of Health Services Administration and Management, and the Department of Health Care Ethics. Dr. Ladewig feels that teaching others to be excellent, caring nurses gives her the best of all worlds because it keeps her in touch with the profession she loves and enables her to help shape the future of the nursing profession. When not at work or writing textbooks, Pat and her husband, Tim, enjoy skiing, baseball games, and traveling. However, their greatest pleasure comes from their family: son Ryan, his wife, Amanda, and grandson Reed, and son Erik, his wife, Kedri, and granddaughter Emma. iii

4 lon23944_fm.qxd 2/21/06 6:44 PM Page iv iv ABOUT THE AUTHORS Jane W. Ball Jane W. Ball graduated from the Johns Hopkins Hospital School of Nursing, and subsequently received a BS from the Johns Hopkins University. She worked in the surgical, emergency, and outpatient units of the Johns Hopkins Children s Medical and Surgical Center, first as a staff nurse and then as a pediatric nurse practitioner. This began her career as a pediatric nurse and advocate for children s health needs. Jane obtained both a master of public health and doctor of public health degree from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health with a focus on maternal and child health. After graduation she became the chief of child health services for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Health. In this capacity she oversaw the state-funded well-child clinics and explored ways to improve education for the state s community health nurses. After relocating to Texas, she joined the faculty at the University of Texas at Arlington School of Nursing to teach community pediatrics to registered nurses returning to school for a BSN. During this time she became involved in writing her first textbook, Mosby s Guide to Physical Examination, which is currently in its sixth edition. After relocating to the Washington, D.C., area, she joined Children s National Medical Center to manage a federal project to teach instructors of emergency medical technicians from all states about the special care children need during an emergency. Exposure to the shortcomings of the emergency medical services system in the late 1980s with regard to pediatric care was a career-changing event.with federal funding, she developed educational curricula for emergency medical technicians and emergency nurses to help them provide improved care for children. A textbook entitled Pediatric Emergencies, A Manual for Prehospital Providers was developed from these educational ventures. For the past 14 years, she has managed the federally funded Emergency Medical Services for Children National Resource Center. As executive director, Dr. Ball directs the provision of consultation and resource development for state health agencies, health professionals, families, and advocates about successful methods to improve the healthcare system so that children get optimal emergency care in all healthcare settings. Ruth C. McGillis Bindler Ruth Bindler received her BSN from Cornell University New York Hospital School of Nursing in New York. She worked in oncology nursing at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and then moved to Wisconsin and became a public health nurse in Dane County. Thus began her commitment to work with children as she visited children and their families at home, and served as a school nurse for several elementary, middle, and high schools. Due to this interest in child healthcare needs, she earned her MS in child development from the University of Wisconsin. A move to Washington State was accompanied by a new job as a faculty member at the Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education in Spokane, Washington. Dr. Bindler has been fortunate to be involved for over 30 years in the growth of this nursing education consortium, which is a combination of public and private universities and colleges and is now the Washington State University/Intercollegiate College of Nursing. She has taught theory and clinical courses in child health nursing, cultural diversity and health, graduate research, pharmacology, and assessment, as well as serving as lead faculty for child health nursing. Her first professional book, Pediatric Medications, was published in 1981, and she has continued to publish articles and books in the areas of pediatric medications and pediatric health. Research efforts are focused in the area of childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular risk factors in children. Ethnic diversity has been another theme in her work. She facilitates international and other diversity experiences for students and performs research with culturally diverse children. Dr. Bindler believes that her role as a faculty member has enabled her to learn continually, to foster the development of students in nursing, and to participate fully in the profession of nursing. In addition to teaching, research, publication, and leadership, she enhances her life by service in several professional and community activities, and by activities with her family.

8 lon23944_fm.qxd 2/21/06 6:44 PM Page viii Preface Faculty and students in today s maternity and pediatric nursing courses face a wide variety of issues and challenges. Courses are growing increasingly shorter, and clinical experiences are more limited. Time truly is precious for both students and faculty. The primary goal in this edition is to present key content in an accurate, readable format that helps students and faculty focus on what s important and helps students develop the skills and abilities they need now and in the future in an ever-changing healthcare environment. This is done through the new Critical Concept Review feature at the end of each chapter, through the illustrations and photographs that clarify concepts more efficiently than words can do, and through the accompanying Student CD-ROM, which depicts clinical situations and requires students to engage in critical thinking. In its structure, format, and delivery, this text provides a concise look at maternal-newborn, women s health, and pediatric nursing. ORGANIZATION The organization of the text also reflects a time-saving approach. As educators and nurses, we know how difficult it is to teach everything that students need to learn in so little time. Consequently, we sought to reduce duplication in the text by carefully integrating maternity and pediatric nursing topics. For example, Chapter 1 begins with introductory concepts important for maternal, newborn, and child nursing, such as family-centered care, cultural considerations, health promotion, community and home care, and legal and ethical considerations, as well as emerging areas such as cord blood banking, the Human Genome Project, and stem cell research. Later chapters focus on reproductive issues and women s health, pregnancy, birth processes, postpartum care, and newborn management, and then transition into the pediatric care chapters. The pediatric chapters also cover general issues first, beginning with introductory concepts followed by two chapters, Chapters 37 and 38, on health promotion for children ranging from infancy to adolescence. Chapters 39 through 57 cover the nursing care of children with various disorders, organized by body system. Throughout the text we have eliminated potentially conflicting information. Students may notice a voice change within chapters. For example, within theory-based sections, we use the nurse. Within the nursing management sections, however, we speak to the students directly in second person, e.g., Assess... or Manage.... This way, students have a very clear understanding of their responsibilities and can put themselves in the role of the nurse more easily. IMPORTANT THEMES IN THIS EDITION Central to this edition are several key themes that are increasingly evident in nursing care of childbearing and childrearing families. Family-Centered Nursing Care Nursing care for pregnant women and children is a familycentered process. The underlying philosophy of Maternal & Child Nursing Care is simple: We believe that family members are co-participants in care, whether this is related to pregnancy and childbirth or to care of the infant or child at any stage of development. Families experience the excitement and exhilaration of welcoming a healthy infant into their home, but they also experience sorrow and concern when a health problem occurs. Nurses play a pivotal role in helping families celebrate the normal life processes associated with birth, in promoting the health of the family and child, and in fostering the child s growth and development from infancy through adolescence. We are committed to providing a text that integrates the needs of families across the continuum from conception through adolescence. Health Promotion In this textbook, we subscribe to the paradigm that all childbearing and childrearing families and children need health promotion and health maintenance interventions, no matter where they seek healthcare or what health conditions they may be experiencing. Families may visit offices or other community settings, specifically to obtain health supervision care. Nurses may also integrate health promotion and health maintenance into the care for childbearing and childrearing families and children with acute and chronic illness in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings. This textbook integrates health promotion and health maintenance content throughout, most visibly in three new chapters: Chapter 4, Health Promotion for Women, Chapter 37, Health Promotion and Health Maintenance for the Infant and Young Child, and Chapter 38, viii

9 lon23944_fm.qxd 2/21/06 6:44 PM Page ix PREFACE ix Health Promotion and Health Maintenance for the Older Child and Adolescent. In addition, a new feature entitled Health Promotion summarizes the needs of children with specific chronic conditions, such as asthma or diabetes. These overviews teach the student to look at the child with a chronic illness like any other child, with health maintenance needs for prevention, education, and basic care. Nursing Care in the Community Most maternity and pediatric nursing care occurs in the community setting, especially since most children and pregnant women are healthy and have only episodic acute health conditions. Even women with high-risk pregnancies and children with serious chronic health conditions are receiving more care in their homes and in the community. This textbook integrates community and home care throughout, including information on long-term management of complex health conditions, which are especially challenging to manage in community settings. Four chapters provide a theoretical perspective and important tools in caring for childbearing and childrearing families in the community setting: Chapter 10, Antepartal Nursing Assessment, Chapter 11, The Expectant Family: Needs and Care, Chapter 32, Home Care of the Postpartum Family, and Chapter 39, Nursing Considerations for the Child and Family in the Community. In addition, Nursing Care in the Community is a special heading used throughout this text. Because we consider home care to be one form of community-based care, it often has a separate heading under Nursing Care in the Community sections of Nursing Management. Client Education Client education remains a critical element of effective nursing care, one that we emphasize in this text. Nurses teach their clients during all stages of pregnancy and the childbearing process, and during the child s health visits and care for specific conditions. Throughout the book, we include Teaching Highlights that present a special healthcare issue or problem and the related key teaching points for care by the family. Critical Thinking Today s nurses must be able to think critically and problem solve effectively. Nurses are often faced with managing care for multiple families with diverse healthcare needs, and working collaboratively with other health professionals to enhance care. To promote the development of critical thinking skills that will support nurses in challenging situations, Thinking Critically boxes provide brief scenarios that ask students to determine the appropriate response. Students can test their own decision-making skills by submitting answers to these questions via the Companion Website, where the feature also appears. The instructor can then grade their answers using the suggested answers provided in the Instructor s Manual, which is replicated on the Instructor s Resource CD-ROM. Students can access a variety of critical thinking exercises and case studies on the textbook s Companion Website at Another feature that emphasizes these skills is the Critical Thinking in Action feature. This case study introduces a client situation at the end of each chapter and continues on the Student CD-ROM, where it comes to life with videos and images. Students benefit from experiencing the case on the CD-ROM as they decide what nursing actions are appropriate. The Instructor s Resource Manual has more suggestions for critical thinking exercises for both the classroom and clinicals. Research and Evidence-Based Nursing Practice Healthcare professionals are increasingly aware of the importance of using evidence-based approaches as the foundation for planning and providing effective care. The approach of evidence-based practice draws on information from a variety of sources, including nursing research. To help nurses become more comfortable integrating new knowledge into their nursing practice, a brief discussion of evidence-based practice is included in Chapter 1. A new feature entitled Evidence-Based Nursing further enhances the approach of using research to determine nursing actions. It describes a particular problem or clinical question and investigates the evidence that suggests solutions to the problem. In these features, we provide an interpretation explaining the implications of the studies and then invite the student to apply critical thinking skills to further identify nursing care approaches. Cultural Competence The influence of a family s culture on health beliefs and healthcare practices cannot be underestimated. Chapter 1 briefly introduces cultural issues relevant to maternity and child nursing care. Additionally, we devote a new chapter entirely to culture, Chapter 2, Culture and the Family. We also emphasize cultural competence throughout the text. We highlight specific cultural issues and their application to nursing care in the Developing Cultural Competence features.

10 lon23944_fm.qxd 2/21/06 6:48 PM Page x x PREFACE Other New or Expanded Concepts in This Edition Many other important concepts are emphasized throughout this text: Assessment is an essential and core role in the nursing process. Several chapters are dedicated to helping the student perform an assessment at each stage along the pregnancy continuum, initially of the fetus and newborn, and later through the stages of childhood. Communication is one of the most important skills that students need to learn. Effective communication is the very fiber of nursing practice. This book integrates communication skills in an applied manner where students can most benefit. It is an essential part of the Nursing Process and Teaching Highlights boxes. Ensuring appropriate nutrition during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood is important to promote growth, development, and health. A growing national focus on healthy nutrition patterns underscores the importance of this information. Chapters 12, 29, and 34 address nutrition for pregnant women, newborns, and children. Pain is now considered the fifth vital sign, and pain management is a priority in healthcare settings. All of the chapters in Unit IV, Birth and the Family, address pain assessment and management, as do five of the chapters (23, 24, 25, 28, and 32) in Unit V, The Postpartal Childbearing Family and Newborn. In Unit VI, Chapters 35, 40, and 41 address pain assessment and management, and it is the primary subject in Chapter 42, Pain Assessment and Management in Children. We discuss applicable pain management when appropriate in other chapters, including each of the chapters in Unit VII, Caring for Children with Alterations in Health Status. End-of-life care has gained greater national prominence. Expanded focus on the care of the family and the child who is dying has been added to Chapter 41, The Child with a Life-Threatening Illness and End-of-Life Care. Grief and loss associated with miscarriage is addressed in Chapter 15, Pregnancy at Risk: Gestational Onset and in Chapter 21, Childbirth at Risk. TOOLS THAT FOCUS STUDENT REVIEW TO MAXIMIZE TIME Instructors and students both value learning aids that unify the objectives and concepts of a chapter as well as reinforce the overall themes in a text. In keeping with our theme of family-centered care, each chapter begins with a Family Quote that helps set the stage for content that follows from the family s perspective. This is followed by a list of Learning Objectives (new to this edition) and Key Terms with page numbers to identify the place where the term first appears in the chapter. An Audio Glossary of these terms commonly used in the field of maternal-newborn and child nursing can be found on the Student CD-ROM and the Companion Website, with audio pronunciations of the terms as well as printed definitions. Critical Concept Review In this new edition, we responded to instructors and students requests by providing more opportunities for review. Each chapter ends with a Critical Concept Review, a new feature designed to help stu- Critical Concept Review LEARNING OBJECTIVES CONCEPTS Compare the differences between meiotic Mitosis produces cells that cause growth in the body.

Compare the processes by which ova and sperm are produced. Describe the components of the process of fertilization. Meiosis produces cells called gametes that are necessary for reproduction of the species. Results in cells that contain only one half (haploid or 23) of the chromosomes of the parent cell. Ova are present in the female ovary at birth but are dominant until puberty. Meiosis initially produces via oogenesis two haploid cells (secondary oocyte and a minute polar body) that are released at ovulation. At the end of meiosis in the female, there are four haploid cells: the three polar bodies and one ovum. Sperm are produced in the seminiferous tubules of the testes beginning at puberty. Meiosis in the male creates four haploid sperm able to fertilize the ovum. Two sperm carry the Y chromosome and two sperm contain the X chromosome. Preparation is the first component of fertilization. Ovum released into fallopian tube viable for 24 hr. Sperm deposited into vagina viable for 48 to 72 hr (highly fertile for 24 hr). Sperm must undergo capacitation and acrosomal reaction. Sperm penetration causes a chemical reaction that blocks more sperm penetration.

The nuclei of the ovum and sperm swell, unite and become a diploid zygote. most important concepts from a chapter in a short period of time. This visual tool isolates the essential content in a chapter by means of a flowchart that links Learning Objectives to their corresponding Concepts. Students save time by having the important concepts identified for them, allowing them to use more of their study time for reviewing the concepts themselves.

To further enhance the true-tolife nature of the case study, the Student CD-ROM continues the exercise with a video enactment of the situation, followed by the critical thinking questions from the text as well as five short-answer questions. Not only can students review chapter content in an easy, quick-view format, but they can also apply the concepts used in preparation for clinical work. EXPLORE MEDIAL INK EXPLORE MediaLink The review section ends with a list of references and a section entitled EXPLORE MediaLink. This last section encourages students to use the additional chapter-specific NCLEX-RN Review questions and other interactive exercises that appear on the accompanying Student CD-ROM and the Companion Website at The MediaLink

APPLICATION OF THE NURSING PROCESS NURSING MANAGEMENT The nursing process is emphasized throughout the nursing care chapters. The heading Nursing Management highlights nursing actions. In chapters with frequently seen or high-risk health issues or conditions, the expanded section on nursing management helps students understand and apply the nursing process more completely. The expanded section includes Nursing Assessment and Diagnosis, Planning and Implementation, and Evaluation. In keeping with changing approaches to nursing care management, we feature Nursing Care Plans and Clinical Pathways throughout the text. The Nursing Care Plans address nursing care for clients who have complications, such as a woman with preeclampsia or a child with otitis media. We designed this feature to help students approach care from the nursing process perspective. They integrate Nursing Diagnosis, Nursing Intervention Classifications (NIC), and Nursing Outcome Classifications (NOC). In this edition, we added 10 new Nursing Care Plans to help students better understand the conceptual approach that nurses employ in providing care for clients. The Clinical Pathways describe nursing actions as they are integrated into care of other health professionals. They help students plan and manage care within normally anticipated time frames as the patient s health status improves. The plans and pathways help students become familiar with these two approaches to managing care so that they are better equipped for variations in clinical settings. VISUALS THAT TEACH The conviction that art can teach is evident throughout the book. There are hundreds of contemporary photographs of childbearing and childrearing families and children in healthcare and related settings throughout the textbook, as well as illustrations, all of which serve to display conditions, compare developmental stages, and depict concepts. Pathophysiology Illustrated figures allow the student to see into the body and to visualize the causes and effects of conditions on childbearing women, newborns, and children. These unique drawings illustrate conditions on a cellular or organ level, and may also portray the step-by-step process of a disease. Drawings or photos with artistic overlays relate disease to its anatomic location and action. As Children Grow illustrations help the student visualize the important anatomic and physiologic differences between a child and an adult. These features illustrate the important ways that a child s development influences healthcare needs and how the child progresses through developmental stages. MORE FEATURES THAT HELP YOU USE THIS BOOK SUCCESSFULLY On the foldout inside the front cover of this book, we show you how some of the features of the textbook and media can help you to be successful in this course. In addition, we offer the following features to further enhance the learning process and help you use this book successfully: Nursing Practice features offer hands-on suggestions and clinical tips. These are placed at locations in the text that will help students apply them. They include topics such as legal and ethical considerations, nursing alerts, and home and community care considerations. Complementary Care boxes present information about commonly used alternative and complementary measures to treat or provide comfort for various conditions. Drug Guides for selected medications commonly used in maternal-newborn and child nursing guide students in correctly administering the medications and evaluating their actions. There are also tables of Medications Used to Treat certain health conditions, to provide an overview of the types of medications that can be used for a specific condition. We highlight important laboratory values within the text as a tool for students to assess their patients conditions a critical precursor to determining appropriate nursing interventions. In addition, an appendix presents normal ranges for pregnant women, newborns, and children by age group. Cross-reference icons help the student to easily locate related information in other chapters. MEDIALINK Entry into practice application MediaLink tabs with CD-ROM and Skills icons remind the student to use the Student CD-ROM or

12 lon23944_fm.qxd 2/21/06 6:45 PM Page xii xii PREFACE Companion Website to find additional information or activities related to the concepts introduced on that page in the textbook. These resources enhance learning and provide an application beyond the textbook experience. Assessment Guides,found in the maternalnewborn chapters, assist students with diagnoses by incorporating physical assessment and normal findings, alterations and possible causes, as well as guidelines for nursing interventions. Clinical Manifestations tables help students understand the association between the pathophysiology and the signs and symptoms of a particular condition. In some cases, these tables present several similar conditions so that students can see the differentiation between conditions. In others, the tables include treatment for the clinical manifestations and conditions. Growth and Development boxes, found exclusively in the pediatric chapters, provide information about the different responses of children at various ages to health conditions.

As curricula develop, many nursing programs have begun to offer nursing of childbearing families and nursing of children together in a single course. This combined format requires that faculty approach these two fields with a similar framework and philosophy, and with similar teaching methods, so that students can maximize learning. With this second edition, we have created a tool that will enable students to master these two critical areas of nursing the care of childbearing families and the care of children. Creating a dynamic and integrated text would not be possible without the skill and dedication of a host of people.

Operationally, this book exists in large part because of the tremendous dedication, patience, and skill of our developmental editor, Elena Mauceri. During the long months of hard work, Elena remained calm, focused, organized, and creative. She noted discrepancies, worked for continuity, pitched in everywhere, and earned the respect of all of us. She is truly amazing and we hope to work with her on future projects. Special thanks to the people of Carlisle Communications, especially Lynn Steines, for coordinating production, and Joan Lyon, for her work as copyeditor. They are perceptive, organized, and skillful in all of the tasks of publishing. Finally we all wish to thank our other co-authors. As four individuals, but two teams, we came together with our own ideas, writing styles, and vision for this book. We collaborated, argued, cajoled, and compromised. It was a challenging but rewarding process. Together we created a new and different text for maternal, newborn, and child health nursing, a book and associated learning aids that we hope will be a useful tool for legions of nursing students to come.
