Title: The 14th Annual Neonatal Symposium
Date: Thu, Oct 24th, 2019
Time: 8:00 am - 12:45 pm
Location: Lang Auditorium
Statement of Need:
The Neonatal Symposium brings together respected leaders in newborn medicine to present critical issues confronting providers of state-of-the-science care to medically fragile, low
birth weight preterm infants. Presentations will include important evidence-based updates in neonatal medicine highlighting the following: current research and guidelines for the management of Transfusion Related Acute Gut Injury (TRAGI); therapeutic hypothermia in the management of Neonatal Encephalopathy; assessment and stabilization of Critical CHD; and management of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia. Participants will have the opportunity to review current treatment options in order to further optimize neonatal outcomes.
