Deborah A Raines, Ashley Wagner, Alexander Salinas
Intraamniotic infection (IAI) may occur when the amniotic membranes are ruptured >18 hours prior to birth. The term neonate is at risk for early onset sepsis. This article describes the pathophysiology of IAI and the role of the mother-baby nurse during the anticipated birth and the ongoing assessment of the neonate.

Researchers estimate the incidence of early onset sepsis as 0.77-1/1,000 live births. It remains as one of the leading causes of neonatal deaths. Clinicians and researchers continue to search for biomarkers for specific neonatal disease processes. Clinicians frequently trend C-reactive protein levels during evaluation for neonatal sepsis. Recently, researchers have begun to explore procalcitonin as a potentially useful diagnostic marker for neonatal sepsis.

Ashley Sartori, Gayle Leary Omansky, Steven Ringer
Infantile hepatic hemangioma (IHH) is the most common benign hepatic tumor of infancy. It is characterized by rapid proliferation in the first year of life, followed by slow involution during childhood. Presentation can range from asymptomatic to severe, high-output congestive heart failure (CHF). The purpose of this article is to review the case of an infant with an atypical presentation of IHH. It also addresses pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and multidisciplinary team care.

Tiffany L Walker, Dorothy A Shannon
Pneumopericardium occurs when air accumulates in the pericardial sac surrounding the heart and is one of the rarest forms of air leaks in neonates. Because of various advances in neonatal care, including gentler modes of ventilation, surfactant replacement, and antenatal steroids, the incidence of pneumopericardium has decreased. Despite the decrease in incidence of pneumopericardium, most cases arise in premature infants with a history of respiratory distress and mechanical ventilation. Evidence has shown that the incidence is inversely related to birth weight and that pneumopericardium has high mortality and morbidity rates...

Britt F Pados, Hayley H Estrem, Suzanne M Thoyre, Jinhee Park, Cara McComish
PURPOSE: To develop and content validate the Neonatal Eating Assessment Tool (NeoEAT), a parent-report measure of infant feeding. DESIGN: The NeoEAT was developed in three phases. Phase 1: Items were generated from a literature review, available assessment tools, and parents' descriptions of problematic feeding in infants.Phase 2: Professionals rated items for relevance and clarity. Content validity indices were calculated. Phase 3: Parent understanding was explored through cognitive interviews...

Lory Anne Lewis, Ann F Jacobson
PURPOSE: To identify the nursing care procedures (NCPs) performed in a NICU that disrupt the thermal environment by opening the incubator of moderately preterm neonates (mPNs) (32-34 wk gestational age) and the relationship between the frequency of these disruptions and change in weight (Δwt). DESIGN: Survey and descriptive correlational methodology. SAMPLE: Systematically identified, published references to NCPs that opening the incubator developed an itemized list of NCPs that was used to query the electronic health records (EHRs) of 164 mPNs in the first ten days of life (DOL)...

Alagille syndrome (AGS) is a highly complex, multisystem, autosomal dominant disorder that is caused by a defect in the Notch signaling pathway. This syndrome mainly affects the liver, causing significant cholestasis, which is caused by a paucity of intrahepatic bile ducts. There can be cardiac involvement, including, but not limited to, pulmonary stenosis and tetralogy of Fallot. Patients can also present with butterfly vertebra, ocular issues, and vascular events. Because this syndrome follows an autosomal dominant inheritance, it can have variable expression even in the same family line...

Allyson Daugherty
By using a literature review, this article examines the implications of achondroplasia. The following areas are discussed: the clinical definition of the disease; the incidence, etiology, and pathogenesis; phenotypical characteristics and natural history of the disease; and management, recurrence risk, and genetic counseling. Lastly, implications for nursing in relation to achondroplasia are discussed.

Mental health in the NICU has often been on the outer edge of neonatal care because of the focus being on the baby's health. Yet, with postpartum depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) skyrocketing in the NICU and being proven to affect developmental outcomes, it is time to change that. Evidence is provided in this interview with Cheryl Milford, EdS, a NICU psychologist.

Sergei Roumiantsev, Margaret Doyle Settle
Atrial flutter (AF) is an uncommon neonatal tachyarrhythmia that can present during the first few days after birth. The infant with AF may demonstrate an abrupt increase in heart rate greater than 220 bpm that is sustained despite vagal maneuvers. The diagnosis is made by electrocardiogram (ECG), and the treatments may include medication management and cardioversion. We present a case review of an infant diagnosed with AF and describe the incidence, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management.

Kristina Wallingford, Lori Baas Rubarth
To develop and evaluate a radiation safety program used to educate NICU staff regarding safety procedures to minimize the effects of radiation on the newborn.<br/> Background: Advancements in medical care have resulted in infants born at lower gestational ages and higher acuity. With increased acuity comes an increase in diagnostic testing, including radiologic imaging. Although x-rays are necessary, they do not come without risk, including the future development of cancers.<br/> Methods: The number of x-rays completed in the NICU over a one-year period, was evaluated prior to the radiation safety program, directly after implementation, and five years postintervention...

BACKGROUND: Neonates are at greater risk for central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) because of prolonged vascular access for nutrition and medications. Skin antisepsis using chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG), particularly the formulation with alcohol (CHG/alcohol), during central line insertion and maintenance activities is a key clinical care process associated with CLABSI reduction. One area of ongoing confusion for many clinicians is whether to adhere to the manufacturer's recommendations that CHG remain on the skin following the procedure to promote persistent microbicidal effects or to foster product removal in hopes of preventing skin-related complications...
