This video introduces Guest Editor, Tamara Meeker, CRNP, highlighting the Special Surgical Series for Advances in Neonatal Care. This special series concentrates on surgical diagnoses and surgical procedures affecting the neonate while in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The articles include esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula, congenital infantile fibrosarcoma, risk of abdominal compartment syndrome in the neonate, VP shunt for intraventricular hemorrhage, and telemedicine for the complex surgical patient. Each article includes pathophysiology and the need for astute assessment in preventing further morbidity or mortality as well as nursing’s role in caring for these critical neonates.

Overview of a quality improvement project conducted at UMass Memorial, Worcester MA, to simplify the Finnegan scoring tool for neonatal nurses charged with assessing withdrawal in newborn infants exposed to opioids during pregnancy. Training program that incorporated education, a restructured Finnegan Scoring Tool and a Bedside Guidance Tool resulted in improved consistency of withdrawal scores among 179 neonatal nurses. Despite improvement, more objective and simplified scoring tools are still warranted.

The use of gastric tubes in newborns admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit is fairly high, and there is risk of serious complications related to this procedure. This video abstract provides an overview of our research, which aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonography for verifying gastric tube placement in newborns. This method does not envolve exposure to radiation.

Jennifer Canvasser, founder and director of the NEC Society, discusses the critical importance of communication with parents of babies impacted by necrotizing enterocolitis. Jennifer’s son Micah died of complications related to necrotizing enterocolitis a month before his first birthday. The patient-family advocates within the NEC Society have emphasized that they were desperate for more information during their child’s hospitalization. Parents want to be part of their child’s care team, but they are reliant upon the providers to inform, engage and empower them to take on this active role.

This video abstract provides an overview of our case report which describes events surround an extremely low birthweight infant who developed pneumoperitoneum after receiving two full-volume red blood cell transfusions. Specifically, we outline the raw mesenteric oxygenation patterns measured by near-infrared spectroscopy technology, and how these values provided physiologic information of intestinal hypoperfusion that routine physiologic data did not capture.
