Their skin will be patted dry to minimize any heat loss caused by evaporation of amniotic fluid. They will be kept warm and their temperature will be checked regularly.</p><p>Your newborn baby will be given an antibiotic eye ointment called erythromycin within two hours after birth to prevent eye infections. They will receive an injection of vitamin K to ensure proper clotting of the blood. If your newborn baby is high risk for hepatitis B, they will be immunized against this disease. their stool and urine output will be monitored. If they show signs of jaundice, they will be monitored and treated accordingly. </p><h2>Assessments and screening tests</h2><p>Your newborn baby will go through a number of assessments when they are first born, to make sure that they are in good health. their first assessments, called the Apgar score, occur when they are just one minute and five minutes old. This assessment is a scoring system that assesses newborn babies’ well-being using five different factors: heart rate, breathing, muscle tone, reflexes, and skin colour. </p><p>Your newborn baby’s health-care provider will also check their height, weight, head circumference, and umbilical cord. The health-care provider will give your newborn baby a physical examination and conduct screening tests for hearing and various genetic disorders. </p><p>Screening tests are done shortly after birth to detect important metabolic diseases. Once detected, these diseases can be treated, and hopefully complications can be prevented. In many countries, hearing screening is offered in hospitals and community centres to all newborn babies to ensure they hear well. </p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/routine_health_care_newborn.jpgRoutine health care for newborn babies
