Neonatal Nutrition: Improving Short and Long Term Outcomes

Start Date:5/24/2018

Start Time:7:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


For many years in neonatology, nutrition fell by the wayside to more critical care interventions. As long term outcomes data slowly became available and as more premature infants survived, nutrition slowly gained importance in neonatal ICUs. Although we are still in the infancy of truly understanding the complexity of nutritional components and how to best provide them to premature infants, we have reasonable data that indicates that better nutrition results in better outcomes and less morbidities short and long term. In this presentation we will discuss interventions from the moment babies are admitted to the NICU to their nutrition after discharge to optimize growth and nutrition and long term neurodevelopmental outcomes.
