This course builds on the concepts presented in NSNE 7100, 7200, 7300, 7900 and 7911. This combination theory and clinical course delivers twelve weeks of guided independent study, a workshop, and 40 hours of clinical practice. A case-study format will be used to address the care of infants experiencing life-threatening health challenges, including aspiration, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, sepsis, multiorgan dysfunction, abdominal wall defects, hydrops, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, and extremely low birth weight. Treatment modalities such as venous and arterial access, various modes of invasive respiratory support, pharmacological support, and blood products are examined using a developmentally supportive and family-centered care approach.
