The healthcare goals in neonatal intensive care are primarily to provide the opportunity for survival until the neonate’s body systems can more fully develop, enabling their natural defenses to mature. In the past 20 years, neonatal care has developed into an important healthcare specialty, complete with highly specialized critical care equipment, protocols, and facilities. Because of their size and stage of development, the health needs of neonates are quite different from those of adults.
In this continuing education unit, you will explore some of those needs, review developmental stages and the various diseases that afflict newborn infants (including numerous congenital defects). You will also learn about the various scoring and diagnostic tests utilized in neonatal care.


Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
objective 1:
• Identify and discuss the stages of fetal lung development, summarizing its functions in utero and transitions at birth.
