The Conundrum of Managing
Babies with Mild HIE
In this special webinar event on May 20th, Dr. Lina Chalak will summarize the evidence that neonates with mild HIE are at significant risk for adverse long term outcomes and will elaborate on the possible role of EEG, amplitude EEG and parenteral involvement to guide decision making during the first 6 hours of life, which still remains to be the critical window of time for offering cooling.
We are so lucky to have Dr. Wissam Alburaki, a neonatologist from New Brunswick joining us LIVE on Wednesday, June 29th at 8am Pacific/11am Eastern for a presentation and discussion about best practices and protocols for offering feeding during cooling babies with HIE. This is the final bonus session of our Caring During Cooling webinar series.
Compared to many other skills in the NICU, caring for a baby with HIE while undergoing therapeutic hypothermia is still a relatively new specialty and it continues to evolve as new research is completed.
Although there is little argument on the benefits of offering cooling to babies with moderate and severe HIE, there are a few areas of nursing and medical care that are often debated and even controversial.
In our cooling series, you will learn from leading experts on some of the hottest areas of controversy when it comes to cooling babies with HIE in the NICU.
Do you oftentimes wonder if you should...
