Course Overview
When newborn infants become ill and require specialized care, each member of the healthcare team-nurses, physicians, therapists and assistants-must know what to do in a timely and effective manner.  It is not uncommon for an infant to be properly resuscitated in the delivery room, but to receive less than optimal care post-resuscitation, resulting in an unfortunate outcome.  First introduced in 1996 in the US and Canada, S.T.A.B.L.E. is a neonatal education program focusing exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants.  This early transitional care affects not only the infant’s immediate health, but the long-term outcome as well.  Education in stabilization beyond resuscitation is critical to the mission of reducing infant mortality and morbidity.
S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the 6 assessment parameters covered in the program: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support for the family.  The design of this program is for all Healthcare Providers whose practice setting involves exposure to newborns, other than NICU providers.

Some of the Objectives Include:

• Recognize infants at increased risk for becoming hypoglycemic and
hyperglycemic.
• Identify candidates for placement of an umbilical catheter.
• List 3 ways healthcare providers can support parents of sick infants.
• Recognize infants at increased risk of becoming hypothermic, and list 3
necessary precautions to observe when re-warming hypothermic infants.
• Describe how to provide assistance during endotracheal intubation.
• List 2 signs and symptoms of a pneumothorax.
• Describe indications for, and safe administration of, dopamine.
• Identify the initial, appropriate IV fluid therapy for sick neonates.
• Discuss the relationship of thrombocytopenia to possible sepsis.
• List 3 laboratory tests indicated for evaluation of infection

Who Should Attend:
All Labor and Delivery, Postpartum and Newborn Nurses functioning in a “Women’s Services” unit other than NICU.
