Neonatal Emergencies

Neonatal patients are different! They lack physiological reserve to cope with disease and stress, have high demand for fluid and glucose, and a limited number of clinical signs they are able to show when they are unwell.

What you'll learn

This intensive short course is packed with essential information that will help you understand these critical patients better, and to be able to treat them more effectively when they are in your clinic. Over 3 tutorials, we’ll cover the normal neonate, the approach to the sick neonate, fluid therapy, and management of specific neonatal conditions, including sepsis, toxic milk syndrome, neonatal isoerythrolysis and much more!
This tutorial will cover the normal neonate – including basic physiology, blood profile characteristics (blood lactate, packed cell volume, coagulation etc.), as well as the influence of neonatal physiology on pharmacology and drug dosing.
This tutorial will cover the general approach to the sick neonate, including patient evaluation, diagnostic tests (and their interpretation); and the provision of general supportive care, including nutritional support, fluid therapy, and glucose and electrolyte disorders, among others. We’ll conclude the tutorial with a look at how to determine neonatal survivability using scoring systems such as the APGAR system.
This tutorial will look at specific diseases of the neonate, including respiratory disease, cardiac diseases, toxic milk syndrome, neonatal isoerythrolysis, septicaemia, umbilical infections and many more!
