Use of an Entirely Human Milk-Based Diet in VLBW Infants: Review of Current Evidence and Future Directions VIEW DETAILS  

This program will primarily focus on human milk benefits for the very low birth weight infant. Human milk is the optimal food for any newborn at all stages of maturity. The benefits of human milk over formula have been documented over many years and include optimal supply of protein, calories, hormonal and immunological support. Maternal breast milk changes over time and adapts to the age of the infant...

Therapeutic Surfactant Composition & Volumetric Dose – Impact on Lung Distribution and Cardiorespiratory Physiology VIEW DETAILS  
The use of exogenous pulmonary surfactants has significantly improved the survival of premature infants. Currently, surfactants are delivered to the alveoli by dispensing boluses of the liquid formulation into the trachea via an endotracheal tube. Existing evidence indicates that more uniform distribution of the surfactant within the lung is achieved by larger volume boluses administered over a shorter period of time. However, larger and faster boluses also increase the amount of time that the airway is transiently occluded during surfactant administration, raising concerns about potential peridosing adverse effects on factors such as mean arterial blood pressure and cerebral perfusion and oxygenation. This presentation will summarize preclinical and clinical literature that examines factors that affect the distribution of exogenous surfactant within the lung and the extent to which these factors may be associated with peridosing adverse effects.

Reducing Management Invasiveness for Infants with Respiratory Distress Syndrome – Where Are We, Where Are We Going? VIEW DETAILS  
Chronic lung disease remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the preterm infant. Injury to both the fragile lung parenchyma and airways of the preterm can lead to acute and long term consequence. Evidence suggests that mechanical ventilation and intubation play lead roles in neonatal lung injury. Optimizing the use of non-invasive respiratory therapy and surfactant administration, along with strategies to minimize intubation and re-intubation has the most promise to move the bar on chronic lung disease reduction in this population. The role of ventilation strategy and management and surfactant administration in this population will be discussed, along with potential new therapies and approaches for the near future.
