When your child is stillborn or stillborn in the NICU, you are able to determine the exact time of birth by recording a blood pressure reading at the time of death.
When your son or daughter is stillbirth, the time is different, and your blood pressure can’t be recorded until the next of kin confirm it.
But if your child was stillborn before he or she was born in the hospital, the death certificate will be used as evidence that your child wasn’t born.
Here are the basics of when to record blood pressure at the hospital.
If you can’t find out the exact cause of death, your child should be placed on life support.
If the cause of the death is still unknown, the cause may be complications from the surgery or the hospital stay, such as sepsis.
You can use a digital caliper to record your blood pressures and to see if there are any complications.
There are a few other ways to determine if your baby was stillbirth.
If your child dies in the first trimester, there is a higher risk of complications during labor and delivery.
If it’s stillbirth at the third trimester or beyond, you can use ultrasound to determine how your baby’s heart and lungs function.
If a medical examiner’s autopsy shows that the cause was complications from a surgery, your son will be listed as stillborn.
If there is an autopsy and it shows complications, your daughter will be stillborn unless the autopsy indicates she was still born before the surgery.
Your son or daughters remains are not considered dead until the end of the second trimester of pregnancy, which is when a Caesarean section becomes necessary.
When to Record Blood Pressure in the Hospital You can’t record your child’s blood pressure before or after birth.
However, you do have a few ways to find out if your son has died or if he is still alive.
At the time your child died, your baby could be in the intensive care unit (ICU) or the neonatal intensive care ward (NICU).
You can get a blood sample from the child in the ICU or the NICUs.
You don’t need a special device or equipment to collect a sample.
A syringe or other instrument that can be used to collect blood is usually used.
You may be able to get a sample of your child by calling the child’s physician.
You’ll also need to call your child care provider and request the sample.
You should wait at least 24 hours after you receive the blood sample before you start any tests.
If tests come back negative, you should get a call from the hospital to let you know.
If test results show that your son is still born, you’ll need to continue with the pregnancy.
If not, you will need to transfer your baby to the NICOs or other appropriate facilities.
The medical examiner will be able confirm if your death occurred.
Your child’s cause of birth will be determined by the medical examiner.
You need to record the date of death as well as the name of the medical officer who recorded the death.
Your baby is considered stillborn when the medical examiners certificate states that he or her remains were stillborn at the date the death was recorded.
When it comes to a death at the NICS, your medical examiner can’t determine if the death occurred at the moment the medical certificate states it occurred.
If they do, they’ll use the information from the medical record to determine whether your baby died during labor or delivery.
Your medical examiner also can’t decide whether the death resulted from complications from an emergency room procedure.
When an infant is still-born, the medical records will be the primary source of information about the cause and manner of death for the coroner.
If an autopsy shows complications from surgery or hospital stay and the child is listed as a stillborn, your newborn will be placed in the neonatology ward (NGW).
If the autopsy doesn’t show complications, you may need to keep your newborn in the NGW until your medical records indicate that the child was born.
If no complications are found, your neonatal care provider will take the newborn to the neonate intensive care units (NIVs) for further care.
Your neonatologist will determine whether or not the baby was born alive or dead.
If all of the above is correct, your infant will be transferred to the ICUs for care.
When You Find Out Your Child Died The next thing to do is to learn about the circumstances of the child dying.
You might want to speak to the hospital’s chief medical officer to find the details of the funeral arrangements, if any.
If so, you must contact your local coroner’s office, as well.
There’s no way to know exactly when your child will be cremated or cremated in your name.
However the funeral director, cemetery, cremation house or a funeral home can assist in determining when your son’s remains are being
