Meconium aspiration syndrome

MECONIUM ASPIRATION SYNDROME presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9


Introduction
Introduction presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Meconium-stained amniotic fluid may be aspirated during labor and delivery, causing neonatal respiratory distress.

  • Because meconium is rarely found in the amniotic fluid prior to 34 weeks' gestation, meconium aspiration chiefly affects infants at term and postterm.


Introduction1
Introduction presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

3 major constituents of meconium:

Intestinal secretions

Mucosal cells

Solid elements of swallowed amniotic fluid are the 3 major solid constituents of meconium.

Water - major liquid constituent, (85-95%)


Etiology
Etiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Placental insufficiency

  • Maternal hypertension

  • Preeclampsia

  • Oligohydramnios

  • Maternal drug abuse

    (tobacco, cocaine)


Etiology1
Etiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Maternal infection/chorioamnionitis

  • Inadequate removal of meconium from the airway prior to the first breath

  • Use of positive pressure ventilation (PPV) prior to clearing the airway of meconium


Pathophysiology
Pathophysiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

Fetal hypoxic stress

(head or cord compression)

Vagal stimulation

Mature gastrointestinal tract

Peristalsis

Rectal sphincter relaxation

Meconium passage


Pathophysiology1
Pathophysiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

Meconium + amniotic fluid

1. perinatal bacterial infection

2. erythematoxicum

3. stained amniotic fluid aspiration


Pathophysiology2
Pathophysiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

Aspiration induces hypoxia via 3 major pulmonary effects: 

1. airway obstruction

2. surfactant dysfunction

3. chemical pneumonitis


Pathophysiology3
Pathophysiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

1. Airway obstruction

  • Complete obstruction - atelectasis

  • Partial obstruction - ball-valve effect


Pathophysiology4
Pathophysiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

2. Surfactant dysfunction

  • free fatty acids of the meconium (eg, palmitic, stearic, oleic), have a higher minimal surface tension than surfactant

  • Meconium strip it from the alveolar surface, resulting in diffuse atelectasis


Pathophysiology5
Pathophysiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

3. Chemical pneumonitis

  • Enzymes, bile salts, and fats in meconium irritate the airways and parenchyma, causing a release of cytokines

  • results in a diffuse pneumonia that may begin within a few hours of aspiration


History1
History presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

Meconium in amniotic fluid

- required to cause meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS)

Green urine

- less than 24 hours after birth

- meconium pigments absorbed by lungs, excreted in urine

    1. syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH)

    2. acute renal failure are frequent of


Laboratory studies2
Laboratory Studies presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

CBC Count

  • In utero or perinatalblood loss, as well as infection, contributes to postnatal stress

  • Hemoglobin andhematocrit

    - ensure adequate oxygen-carrying capacity

  • Neutropeniaorneutrophilia

    - may indicate perinatal bacterial infection

Diffuse chemical pneumonitis from constituents of meconium


Chest findings5
Chest Findings presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Gross overaeration of the lungs and bilateral nodular infiltrates

  • The nodular infiltrates represent areas of patchy or focal alveolar atelectasis and the overaerated spaces in between, compensatroy, focal alveolar overdistension


Management
Management presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

Meconium Aspiration

Intubation

Suctioning

(Tracheal suctioning)


Management1
Management presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

No clinical trials justify suctioning based on the consistency of meconium.

Avoid:

  • Squeezing the chest of the baby

  • Inserting a finger into the mouth of the baby


Guidelines for management of a baby exposed to meconium by aapnrp
Guidelines for Management of a Baby Exposed to presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9Meconium by AAPNRP

NOT VIGOROUS

(minimal or absent respiratory effort,

poor muscle tone, or HR <100 beats/min)

Directlaryngoscopy intubation

and tracheal suctioning

(Suction for no longer than 5 seconds)


Guidelines for management of a baby exposed to meconium by aapnrp1
Guidelines for Management of a Baby Exposed to presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9Meconium by AAPNRP

VIGOROUS

(good respiratory effort, crying, good muscle tone,

and HR >100 beats/min)

DO NOT electively intubate.

Prognosis
Prognosis presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Most with complete recovery of pulmonary function

  • Intrapartum events initiating meconium passage may cause long-term neurologic deficits:

  • CNS damage

  • seizures

  • mental retardation

  • cerebral palsy


Hyperbilirubinemia

HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9


Pathophysiology6
Pathophysiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Yellow color usually results from accumulation of unconjugated, nonpolar, lipid-soluble bilirubin pigment in the skin

  • May be due in part to deposition of pigment from conjugated bilirubin

  • Elevated levels of indirect, unconjugatedbilirubin potentially neurotoxic


Etiology2
Etiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Increase load of bilirubin to the liver

    • Hemolytic anemia, polycythemia, shortened red cell life, increased enterohepatic circulation, infection

  • Damaged or reduced activity of the transferase enzyme or other related enzymes

    • Genetic deficiency, hypoxia, infection, thyroid deficiency


Etiology3
Etiology presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Blocked transferase enzyme

  • Absence or decreased amounts of enzyme or reduced bilirubin uptake by liver cells

    • Genetic defect, prematurity


Differential diagnosis1
Differential Diagnosis presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Jaundice appearing after the 3rd day and within the 1st week suggests bacterial sepsis or urinary tract infection

  • Other causes: syphilis, toxoplasmosis, CMV, enterovirus


Management2
Management presentation, Delivered by repeat LSCS, APGAR Score 5,9

  • Regardless of the cause, goal of therapy is to prevent indirect-reacting bilirubin related neurotoxicity

  • Tx: phototherapy and exchange therapy
