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.

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...

Bobbi S Greiner, Gail A Poskey
Compassion fatigue is a concept used to describe how various stressors affect individuals who work in health care and other caregiving professions. The results of compassion fatigue may include decreased work productivity, poor quality of care, safety concerns, job dissatisfaction, and job turnover. The NICU professionals are at an increased risk for experiencing compassion fatigue because of the nature of working with critically ill infants, their families, and the additional stress of the workplace. The purpose of this article is for the NICU professional to understand compassion fatigue, identify the risk factors, recognize the signs and symptoms, and offer strategies to implement within the NICU environment...

Hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is the third most common yet most frequently underrecognized, congenitally acquired hemolytic disease of the neonate. Hereditary spherocytosis is caused by a defect of one or more erythrocyte membrane proteins, which leads to an increased rate of destruction of circulating red blood cells. The HS spectrum of symptoms is varied from asymptomatic to intrauterine hydrops. Diagnostic tests range from a complete blood count (CBC) analysis to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing. Management in the neonatal period focuses primarily on associated comorbidities, including the prevention of severe hyperbilirubinemia and anemia...

Tiffany Harriman, Wanda T Bradshaw, Stephanie M Blake
Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in neonates. Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy occurs as a result of a perinatal hypoxic-ischemic event just prior to or during delivery. Therapeutic hypothermia using whole body cooling is the current treatment of choice to reduce brain injury and improve long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes for neonates with HIE. All English language articles published since 2005 in PubMed and the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) were analyzed for existing evidence-based methods for whole body cooling...

Yasser N Elsayed, Debbie Fraser
The clinical guidelines for treating patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) have significantly evolved over the last decades from treating any ductal shunt to more conservative management where only the hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus (HSPDA) is treated. This shift has resulted largely from a lack of evidence from randomized controlled trials supporting a relationship between treating a PDA and improving long-term neonatal outcomes. However, there are many unresolved issues. There is no consensus on the precise definition of HSPDA requiring treatment or a clear understanding of when to treat HSPDA...

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is defined as glucose intolerance with onset during pregnancy. During pregnancy, women with GDM develop insulin resistance, which results in altered glucose tolerance. As a result, there are frequent episodes of hyperglycemia and high levels of circulating amino acids, increasing the transfer of nutrients to the fetus. This article discusses the role of the mother-baby nursing in the care of neonates born to women with gestational diabetes.

Patricia Scheans, Catherine Bennett, Deborah Harris
Hospitals are challenged to implement measures to improve health outcomes, decrease costly interventions, and increase patient satisfaction. By following a nurse-driven protocol, our institution has successfully met these three challenges in our treatment of newborns diagnosed with neonatal hypoglycemia (NH). Based on results of a randomized clinical trial, a multidisciplinary team trialed glucose gel as a standard treatment for NH. During the first year, admission rates to the NICU for NH decreased by 73 percent...

Susan Givens Bell
The anion gap, in conjunction with other laboratory results, can be a useful clue in the differential diagnosis of metabolic acidosis. There are three primary causes of metabolic acidosis: loss of base, decreased renal excretion of acid, and increased acid production. Depending on the cause of metabolic acidosis, the anion gap may be elevated or normal.
