You are also welcome to invite family or a support person to stay with you while you are in the hospital, as you may find them helpful.
Nitrous oxide is a method of pain relief and anxiety management for mom during childbirth. It is often used at the dentist and referred to as laughing gas. By inhaling the gas through a mask, nitrous oxide is a safe and proven method for anxiety and pain management during labor.
There are no side effects from nitrous oxide for baby, and the side effects for mom are minimal. It is a temporary method of relief because it is cleared from the body when mom stops inhaling the gas and removes the mask.
Nitrous oxide can be
- used before having an epidural (and it is also safe to have an epidural later on).
- an alternative option to pain medication if someone is leaning toward a more natural childbirth experience.
- used before trying pain medication (Nubain).
- stopped if mom decides she would like to switch to pain medication (Nubain).
A neonatologist is a physician who specializes in the care of ill or premature newborn infants.
The neonatologist is connected to HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital through a television with two-way audio and visual equipment, allowing the neonatologist to see, hear and communicate with the patient and their family along with colleagues at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital. After the neonatologist examines the patient, they work with the physician at HSHS St. Nicholas to develop a treatment plan for the patient. This plan will include either transferring the newborn to HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital in Green Bay or maintaining medical care at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital.
Pediatric intensivists are physicians who specialize in critical care medicine for children. They handle emergencies such as trauma, car accidents, critical heart or lung disease or other incidents that require a visit to the Emergency Department.
When children arrive at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital Emergency Department, they receive immediate and expert care from physicians and nurses. Within a short period of time, TelePediatric Critical Care may be initiated which connects the Emergency Department staff with a pediatric intensivist at HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital.
The pediatric intensivist is connected to HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital through a television with two-way audio and visual equipment, allowing the pediatric intensivist to see, hear and communicate with the child, the child’s family and Emergency Department staff. After examining the patient, the pediatric intensivist and the emergency department physician work together to coordinate the appropriate treatment plan.
