S.T.A.B.L.E. Cardiac Module Learner Course
This learner course, taught by Howard Stein, MD, provides general guidelines for the assessment and stabilization of neonates with suspected congenital heart disease (CHD).
In completing this module, the learner will gain an increased understanding of the following concepts: The physical assessment and differential diagnosis of neonates with suspected CHD, the anatomic features, clinical presentation, initial stabilization of neonates with CHD, and the modifications in the S.T.A.B.L.E. guidelines that are necessary when caring for neonates with CHD.
HFV & Nitric Oxide Workshop
Maintaining protective lung strategies during transport is a primary concern. This workshop provides hands-on experience troubleshooting, describing set-up, and identifying key components in delivering high-frequency ventilation with nitric oxide during transport.
This session is designed for neonatologists, intensivists, respiratory therapists, neonatal nurse practitioners, and advanced practice nurses who routinely deliver high-frequency ventilation with nitric oxide on transport.
Fun with Procedures: A Lab Practicum with Hands on Experience
Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on practice, this procedure lab allows attendees to expand their knowledge and skills with difficult intubation techniques, placement of intraosseous needles, chest tube placement, and modalities employed in the treatment of various cardiac dysrhythmias.
This session is intended for neonatal nurse practitioners, advanced practice nurses, transport nurses, and nursing faculty seeking to enhance their knowledge in the performance of chest tube placement, thoracentesis, pericardiocentesis, and intraosseous placement.
