Objective data: the baby looks shortness of breath, anxiety, increased respiratory rate, and excessive secretions.

Goal: Ineffective breathing can be overcome.

Expected outcomes: infant no longer congested, calm baby, decreased respiratory rate, airway secretions in no longer exists.

Nursing Intervention:
1. Put the baby in a comfortable position, head elevated (eg held).
Rationale: good position to help loosen the airway.

2. Give oxygen and airway clear of secretions.
Rationale: Oxygen overcome the body's need for oxygen and clearing the airway would reduce blockages in the airway.
