This two-day course will cover many aspects of neonatal respiratory care, including kinder, gentler mechanical ventilation, NAVA, high frequency ventilation, non-invasive modes of respiratory support, oxygen targeting, one-lung ventilation, surfactant therapy, inhaled nitric oxide therapy, and the use of laryngeal mask airway. Participants will become familiar with the application and pitfalls of bubble nasal prong CPAP therapy and ventilatory strategies in infants with respiratory distress. We will also address strategies for CPAP success from nursing perspective, clinical care of patients with RDS, persistent pulmonary hypertension in term and preterm infants, pulmonary hypertension in infants with chronic lung disease, and fetal surgery. In addition, innovations in monitoring during neonatal intensive care, golden hour management, screening for congenital heart disease, comfort care, point of care sonography, and ‘Pearls in Neonatology’ will be discussed.
Attendance by complete physician-nurse-respiratory therapist teams is strongly recommended and encouraged.
