Abstract:

The skin provides valuable information for the neonatal provider. Through palpation and inspection, a provider can determine the general health including nutrition, organ system function, and expression of systemic or cutaneous disease. The skin also provides important clues for determining gestational age. In this module we define frequently used integumentary terminology, explain integumentary anatomy and physiology, describe the process of a neonatal integumentary exam, and list common neonatal skin variations and lesions.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Define frequently used integumentary terminology;

Objective 2: Explain integumentary anatomy and physiology;

Objective 3: Describe the process of a neonatal integumentary exam.
