1 Exclusive Human Milk Diet for Extremely Low Birth Weight InfantsBushati, Charity2020Problem:Despite advances in nutrition, extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants remain at high risk for extrauterine growth restriction that is correlated with adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. To provide adequate calories and essential nutrients, fortification of human milk (HM) is necessary. T...
2 Implementation of Feeding Guidelines for NeonatesElwood, Christine2020Background:Preterm neonates in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) require specialized care when it comes to their nutrition. Poor nutrition will further worsen an already complicated clinical course as well as increase morbidity, mortality, and poor neurodevelopmental outcomes. A thorough revie...

6 Increasing the use of Blood Warmers in a Level 4 NICUCanfield, Christy; Kranz, Clare; Bahr, Timothy; Christensen, Robert2020POSTER
7 Exploring the Role of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Beyond the NICUYilaire, Renee Y.2020Background: The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) graduate is at an increased risk of morbidities and mortality after discharge from the acute care setting of the NICU. The lack of experienced healthcare providers with specialized training and knowledge of the NICU graduate creates gaps in follow-...
8 Improving Nurse-Provider Communication in the Special Care Nursery Through Implementation of RSBARSmith, Jessica L.2020Background: Ineffective interprofessional communication directly contributes to medical errors, adverse patient events and the deterioration of operational relationships. A Joint Commission root cause analysis found that over 70% of all U.S. hospital sentinel events were directly related to failures...
9 Are Placental Blood Samples a Proxy for Infant Blood Samples When Comparing LabVance, McKenna2020Background: Neonatal anemia is a common problem faced by infants admitted to the NICU. Admission labs to the NICU typically required 3-4 mL of blood for diagnostic purposes. Blood losses from phlebotomy draws increases the likelihood of anemia in preterm infants less than 32 weeks gestation and may ...
10 Exploring the Antecedents of Neonatal Bowel PerforationMantle, Ashley2020Background: Spontaneous intestinal perforation (SIP) occurs in 3-8% of preterm neonates before they reach two weeks of age. Early, concurrent neonatal use of Indocin and Hydrocortisone is a known association of SIP. Mothers in premature labor often receive Indocin as a tocolytic therapy for early la...
11 A Post-Operative Pain Management Guideline for Opioid Exposed NeonatesPabst, Erin2020Background:Neonates are commonly prescribed opioids in the NICU for pain management. Prolonged opiate exposure can lead to increased drug tolerance and/or dependence, and result in higher total opiate exposure and suboptimal pain control. Evidence suggests that the use of a standardized pain managem...
12 Implementation of a Minimal Stimulation Guideline for Infants Less than 29 Weeks Gestation for the First Week of LifeOrr, Jennifer2020Background:The prevalence of prematurity is significant, with 1 in 8 live births occurring before 37 weeks gestation. More infants are surviving who are born between 22-28 weeks gestation. These infants are at high risk for adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. Steps taken during the first week of li...
13 Incidence of Necrotizing Enterocolitis and Improvement in Growth Using a Standardized Cardiac Feeding GuidelineDunyon, Tyler2020Background.Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a gastrointestinal infection with high morbidity and mortality in the neonatal period. Ductal dependent congenital heart disease (CHD) is considered a significant risk factor for developing NEC in both term and preterm infants. These infants are also at ...
14 Decreasing the Inappropriate Use of Pain and Sedation Medications in a Level III NICUSchaeffer, Lisa2020Background: Overuse of pain and sedation medications continue to be a problem in newborn intensive care units (NICU). The use of pain and sedation medications can have harmful long term neurodevelopmental sequlae and these medications should only be used when nonpharmacological interventions are not...
15 Increasing the use of Blood Warmers in a Level 4 NICUCanfield, Christy2020Background Blood warmers have been proven to be safe and effective in the adult population in preventing hypothermia induced from transfusions. However, using blood warmers for transfusions is not standard practice in the neonate population, except for exchange transfusions. Infusing warm fluids h...
16 Improving Adherence to an Existing Protocol for Infants at Risk for HypoglycemiaWright, Rachel2020Background: Prolonged hypoglycemia and delays in treatment correlate with poor neurological outcomes and developmental delays in infants. Research shows that infants at risk can be managed successfully with proactive intervention and management until their bodies have compensated. Protocols enhance ...
17 Education on Appropriate Infant Positioning In the NICUBodamer, Peggy2020Background:Infant positioning plays a vital role in the development of neonates. Inappropriate positioning of premature infants born at less than 34 weeks' gestation increases the risk of developing positional non-synostotic head deformities (NHD) and non-congenital ear deformities (NCED). Bedside p...
18 Implementation of a Probiotic Protocol at an Urban Level 3 NICUHalford, Tami2020Background: Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality among premature and low birth weight infants. Infants who suffer from NEC are at increased risk for death and other poor outcomes, including problems associated with prolonged parenteral nutrition, long-term gas...
