We describe the impact of infant carrying or “babywearing” on reducing distress associated with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome among infants and caregivers. Heart rate was measured in a neonatal intensive care unit pre- (no touching), mid- (20 minutes into babywearing), and post-babywearing (5 minutes later). Across a 30-minute period, infants worn by parents decreased 15 beats per minute (bpm) compared to 5.5 bpm for infants worn by an unfamiliar adult, and adults decreased by 7 bpm (parents) and nearly 3 bpm (unfamiliar adult). Babywearing is a non-invasive and accessible intervention that can provide comfort for infants diagnosed with NAS.

This is a video abstract describing a review of current feeding methods and practices used for infants diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome. A serious sign related to infants diagnosed with NAS is poor feeding. The prevalence of NAS urges researchers and clinicians to develop effective strategies and techniques to treat and manage the poor feeding of infants exposed to substances in utero.

This video talks about the current Opioid and NAS epidemic, current methods of managing NAS, and a new approach known as ESC or Eat, Sleep, Console. This EBP brief reviews three retrospective/quality improvement studies and outlines a process for centers who wish to implement ESC in their institutions.

In this video, we highlight the need for provision of effective modes of respiratory support for newborns in low and middle-income countries. We summarize the current evidence on bubble CPAP-a non-invasive and cost-effective method of delivering CPAP. We draw the listener’s attention to the driving factors that led us conduct our research viz. to understand implementation challenges in use of bubble CPAP.

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.

Introduction to the manuscript describing the factor structure and psychometric properties of the Neonatal Eating Assessment Tool (NeoEAT)– Bottle Feeding, a 64-item parent-report measure of bottle feeding behavior in infants less than 7 months old. Clinical and research uses of the NeoEAT – Bottle feeding are described as well as next steps for development and testing.

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.

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.

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.

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.
