Description

High quality care of the newborn with respiratory distress is dependent upon the availability of consistent high quality radiographic examinations of the chest. The newborn unit personnel play an essential role in providing these studies.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Describe a good technique for positioning a neonate for the purpose of obtaining a chest radiograph, which will allow serial exams to be compared without compensating for changes in rotation.

2. Describe the desired locations for the various tubes and lines that are placed during the newborns intensive care stay.

3. Explain the appearance of some of the more common neonatal chest abnormalities, such as hyaline membrane disease, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, pulmonary hypoplasia and congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
