Free! Supporting Auditory Development in the Premature and High-risk Infant: We Don't Get Do-overs!
Robert White, MD
The auditory cortex undergoes rapid growth and development in the third trimester, but most NICU patients are exposed to too much noise and too little positive auditory stimuli. Dr. White shows that by understanding the needs of NICU patients and the sources of unwanted sound, we can devise strategies to enhance auditory development in existing NICUs and new construction.
Challenging NICU Parents: How to Deal as Told by NICU Parents Themselves
Kelli Kelley, Founder and CEO of Hand to Hold
Three graduate NICU parents explore specific parent-nurse scenarios in the NICU and provide teachable techniques and strategies for care teams to provide the practical and emotional support parents need. When NICU nurses are equipped and empowered to deliver psychosocial support to families, families are better able to process their experience, participate in the care of their baby, and emerge from the NICU as powerful advocates for their children.
Building a Bridge: NRP to PALS: Meeting the Resuscitation Needs for the No Longer "Newly Born" Infant in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Elizabeth Schierholtz, PhD NNP-BC
Infants requiring extended NICU stays may experience a CPR event during their hospitalization. The recommendations from the Neonatal Resuscitation Program guidelines may not be the most appropriate resuscitation guidelines for these infants. This session presents recommendations from the Pediatric Advanced Life Support program that could fill gaps in current resuscitation knowledge and practice for the older infant receiving care in NICUs.
Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy in the Age of Dr. Google
Heather Monk-Bodenstab, PharmD
With her expertise in vaccine-related controversies and more than a decade of experience in speaking with vaccine-hesitant families in the NICU, Dr. Monk-Bodenstab knows how damaging it can be when the internet and social media are considered to be more reliable resources than health care professionals. By discussing the evidence behind neonatal vaccine controversies and demonstrating real-life strategies and resources for speaking with hesitant families, she provides the tools necessary to empower neonatal nurses when dispelling vaccine-related myths on the front lines.
Epidermal Electronics for Neonatal Intensive Care Units
Steve Xu, MD
Dr. Xu describes next-generation monitoring systems that are ultra-soft, flexible, skin-conformable, and wireless patches that can not only recapitulate core vital signs but also collect advanced physiological parameters of clinical relevance. Early performance testing and feasibility of these systems have already been conducted in two separate tertiary level NICUs in more than 70 neonates with results showing equal and even superior performance to standard-of-care monitors.
Transcatheter Closure of Patent Ductus Arteriosus in Premature Babies Less Than 2kg
Jenny Zablah, MD
Transcather PDA closure is a safe procedure performed in patients >700gm with minimal recovery time and low morbidity post-procedure. This procedure is now possible in extremely low birth weight babies due to new FDA approved devices. As an interventional cardiologist, Dr. Zablah educates health care staff involved in the day-to-day care of these patients to identify timing for referral and what to expect from the procedure.
