Étude analytique des motifs de consultations néonatales non programmées : élaboration d’un outil de prévention et d’orientation des parents au sein du réseau ville-hôpital

Abstract : Newborns are a vulnerable population, and pediatric departments dealing with emergencies are not always the most adapted place for their treatment. We performed a multicentric and retrospective epidemiological study of neonates visits to the pediatric departments of the district of La Manche in 2019, in order to determine the motives of those visits. The study included 513 non-programmed visits. The average age of neonates was 17 days. Mothers were primiparous in 50,8% of cases. In the majority, newborns were brought directly by their parents without prior medical advice (87%) and 38,6% of visits were hold at night. Major visits motives were crying, breathing difficulties and digestive symptoms. The hospitalisation rate was 30,2%. Self-referred newborns, needing neither complementary exam nor further hospitalisation, represented 51,7% of all visits. In this group, 52,4% of mothers were primiparous. Those visits occurred most often on shift duties (p<0,01). Crying and digestive problems were main motives of those « simple » visits. This study showed the importance of parents education which could avoid unnecessary presentations to pediatric emergency departments. In order to improve parents orientation within the healthcare network, we have created an informing leaflet to be given at hospital discharge. It gives guidance on health care of newborn infants.
