Description

Thank you for your interest in the first Neonatal Hypoglycemia Conference. The purpose of this conference is bring together pediatricians, neonatologists, pediatric endocrinologists, nurses and lactation consultants to discuss recent developments in the evaluation and management of neonatal hypoglycemia. National leaders in neonatal hypoglycemia will discuss recent developments and we will discuss how to translate the evidence and recommendations into local guidelines and build consensus.

We will focus on the following clinically important and controversial questions in an interactive conference forum:
1. What should be considered "normal" blood glucose in a neonate and why?
2. What are the available tools/instruments available for blood glucose measurement and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each in the context of neonatal blood glucose measurement?
3. How can we incorporate dextrose gel and feeding into the treatment of NH?
4. How can we establish a practice guideline for NH and evaluate its effectiveness?

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, users will be able to:

1. Recognize the "normal" range of blood glucose for neonates based on their post-natal age and appraise the studies upon which these norms are based.
2. Identify the pros and cons of different blood glucose measurement methodologies in neonates and determine which methods may be best suited for individual institutions.
3. Relate the options for treatment of NH and consider the applicability to individual settings.
4. Construct a interprofessional team structure to devise NH practice guidelines.
5. Decide which outcomes should be measured before and after implementation of the guidelines.

Target Audience

This activity is intended forneonatologists, pediatricians, lactation consultants and NICU/mother-baby nurses.
