HEART MURMURS (SEE ALSO SECTION ON CARDIAC PROBLEMS IN THE NEWBORN INFANT) Heart murmurs are common in the first days of life and do not usually signify structural heart problems. If a murmur is present at birth, it should be considered a valvular problem until proved otherwise because the common benign transitional murmurs (eg, patent ductus arteriosus) are not audible until minutes to hours after birth. If an infant is pink, well-perfused, and in no respiratory distress, with palpable and symmetrical pulses (right brachial pulse no stronger than the femoral pulse), the murmur is most likely transitional.

Infants who aspirate are at risk of pneumothorax because of uneven aeration with segmental overdistention and are at risk for persistent pulmonary hypertension (see section on Cardiac Problems in the Newborn Infant, later). C. Congenital Pneumonia Infants of any gestational age, with or without a history of prolonged rupture of membranes, chorioamnionitis, or maternal antibiotic administration, may be affected. Respiratory distress may begin at birth or may be delayed for several hours. The chest radiograph may resemble that of retained lung fluid or hyaline membrane disease.

In most cases, a chest radiograph, blood gas measurements, CBC, and blood glucose determination allow a diagnosis. Intubation and ventilation should be undertaken if there is respiratory failure (PaO2 < 60 mm Hg in 60–80% FIO2, PaCO2 greater than 60 mm Hg, or repeated apnea). Peak pressures should be adequate to produce chest wall expansion and audible breath sounds (usually 18–24 cm H2O). Positive end-expiratory pressure (4–6 cm H2O) should be used. Ventilation rates of 20–50 breaths/min are usually required.
