Late-Breaking Preconferece Workshop Added: Best Practices in Neonatal PICCs—Hands-On Trimming, Stylets, Securement, and Intro to Ultrasound

Sponsored by Vygon

In this preconference workshop, although not a full PICC class, Constance Girgenti, BSN RN VA-BC, will provide a unique opportunity to focus on key aspects around neonatal PICC best practices. Hands-on, instructor-led stations will focus on introducers, stylets, trimming, engineered securement, and bundled dressing changes, and there will be an introduction to the use of ultrasound. Proper training and standardization are essential parts of delivering positive patient outcomes and promoting safety. This workshop is committed to providing clinicians with the education and tools needed to be successful in the care they provide.

On Friday, October 11, 5:30–6:30 pm, Jenny Zablah, MD FACC FAAP, will educate providers on the daily care of patients who experience transcather patent ductus arteriosus closure, identifying timing for referral, and what to expect from the procedure.

Late-Breaking Concurrent Session: Epidermal Electronics for Neonatal Intensive Care Units

Patient monitoring has not changed much since the 1960s—electrodes with wires stretched in a tangled web, plugged into large boxes mounted on the wall. For neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), these systems are more than just inconveniences. The current systems damage ultra-fragile skin for neonates of severe prematurity, frustrate basic clinical caregivers, and prevent skin-to-skin contact between parents and their babies. Dr. Steve Xu describes next generation monitoring systems, the nursing input that directly informed design considerations, and the results of early performance testing and feasibility.
