This activity will offer 5 general sessions and a choice of 4 out of 8 break out session on the monitoring, interpretation of results and care of the neurologically impacted infant. The target audience will gain an increased knowledge regarding the technical aspects of neonatal brain monitoring including aEEG and MRI interpretation. There will be hands-on workshops to improve bedside skills and troubleshooting as pertains to devices critical in the application of therapeutic hypothermia. Overall, the attendee will benefit from increased knowledge and skills to provide evidence based level care to the critically neurologically ill neonate.
This conference is designed to share the latest evidence and trends in neurologic care for NICU patients with Texas NICU physicians, nurses, and providers.
- Discuss the evidence for longer and better cooling, erythropoetin therapies, and the technical aspects of therapeutic hypothermia in infants with HIE
- Apply skills to interpret basic MR sequences, aEEG patterns, and NIRS values in the neonatal brain, with a focus on detecting normal versus abnormal
- Identify characteristics of typical neonatal seizures, and discuss how to apply a neonatal seizure protocol
- Discuss how to utilize developmental positioning tools at the bedside
