Marcus Davey, PhD
Since the 1950s, it has been realized that infants born extremely preterm (23-25 weeks) could benefit from an artificial womb to support organ development and avoid iatrogenic injury associated with invasive mechanical ventilation strategies. We have developed a system that incorporates a pumpless oxygenator circuit connected to the umbilical cord of fetal sheep immersed in amniotic fluid. With appropriate nutritional support, lambs on the system demonstrate normal growth and lung and brain maturation. Clinical translation of this ground-breaking technology will be presented.
Matthew Grossman, MD
Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is a growing problem in the United States. Neonates experiencing NAS often have long lengths of stay and, in some NICUs, up to 50% of beds are filled with neonates with NAS. The traditional model of care for NAS centers on pharmacologic care, which is directed by a scoring tool, most commonly the Finnegan Neonatal Abstinence Scoring System. When infants are started on medication, they are often weaned off of these medications over weeks. At Yale, we questioned all aspects of the traditional approach to NAS and have developed a new, family-centered approach that has produced significantly better results.
Best of NANN's 2017 Conference - Legalization of Marijuana: Unintended Consequences on our Most Vulnerable Patients
Carol Wallman, DNP, APRN, NNP-BC
States with legalized marijuana have faced increased complexities in decision making regarding management of infants exposed to marijuana through pregnancy and breastfeeding. Hospitals across the country are experiencing increased THC use from patients during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. This video will provide a review of current scientific evidence available to support the development of guidelines for consistent messaging and management of these newborns and their families during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
Augustina Delaney, RN, CNM, PhD
In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) joined the global health community to rapidly address the many emerging public health needs on the front lines against Zika. To respond effectively, new public health surveillance and infection control tools were developed that will reduce the effect of Zika virus infection on children and families and will provide a foundation for continued efforts to fight the disease. This video will provide an overview of the current knowledge of Zika virus and pregnant women, the clinical presentation and management of Zika virus infection, the updated CDC guidance on Zika, and the public health surveillance systems are in place for Zika within the United States.
Marty O. Visscher, PhD CPI
Stream the state of the art science workshop on skin care in the NICU. This video presents a strategy to successfully address the multiple skin issues that challenge nurses in the routine care of premature and full term NICU patients. The causes of skin compromise serve as the basis for evidence-based approach for facilitating skin development, preventing skin damage and restoring damage if it occurs. Assessment methods and knowledge gaps will be presented.
