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. By understanding their needs and the sources of unwanted sound, we can devise strategies to enhance auditory development in existing NICUs and new construction. While many of these strategies require a commitment by the organization as a whole, parents and caregivers still have a major role and impact on the long-term auditory development of each baby.
3600 infants die each year in the US before their first birthday due to Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID). It is the leading cause of postneonatal infant mortality and NICU graduates are 2-3 times more likely to die compared to healthy term infants. It is critical for NICU staff to prepare families to maintain a safe sleep environment before and after hospital discharge. In this session we will review safe sleep guidelines and then explore how to apply this knowledge with culturally competent anticipatory guidance. When we are done, you will be better prepared to promote a consistent safe sleep education program for your unit.... Because every family should get to celebrate their baby's first birthday.
This guideline focuses on the care of all premature and critically ill hospitalized newborns, regardless of their specific disease.
