  • Discuss nutrition for critically ill neonates, with a focus on the “golden” first week, new generation intravenous lipids and ways to optimize growth for infants receiving breast milk, both pre- and post-discharge.
  • Assess and evaluate controversies surrounding the use of Avastin for ROP, medications used to treat NAS, PDA management and treatment of encephalopathy.
  • Identify the effectiveness and role of interdisciplinary communication in your institution related to the pharmacologic management of the NICU patients in your care, and ways in which to improve it.

Conference Program

Thursday, April 6

Preconference: The Heart of the Matter: Cardiac Pharmacology for Neonates

Optimal cardiovascular function in neonates is essential to achieving stabilization after delivery, minimizing morbidities, and promoting long term neurologic outcomes.  Cardiac function is critical to both term and preterm neonates with and without structural congenital heart disease.  This Preconference addresses pharmacologic treatment options and controversies related to cardiac function as well as factors that impact these options.  Bring your puzzling cases and questions to share—the faculty enthusiastically encourages interaction!

This Preconference will enable you to:

  • Define the effect of relative adrenal insufficiency on cardiac function and hemodynamic stability.
  • Examine the ongoing controversy surrounding the how, when and why of closing the PDA and treatment of this condition before closure.
  • Discuss additional neonatal pathophysiology that impacts cardiac function, including pulmonary hypertension and common arrhythmias, and the effects of non-cardiac pharmacotherapy.
