With an already busy training schedule and lack of open classrooms, I started getting requests from NICU’s all over California to help offer courses to their staff!!

To help ease the demand I created the Brain Cooling Course!

COURSE OBJECTIVES


BACKGROUND & ASSESSMENT

  • Describe the two-phase pathophysiology of HIE and how therapeutic hypothermia impacts the injury
  • List at least two other neonatal conditions that might mimic HIE during the first day of life
  • Discuss the evidence for the current cooling therapy and two ongoing research projects to direct future practice
  • List the eligibility criteria for therapeutic hypothermia in your NICU in terms of: infant characteristics, timing of intervention and contraindications


MONITORING & IMAGING

  • Identify two expected aEEG patterns during HIE and describe the expected evolution during the first days of life
  • Describe the significance of high and low cerebral NIRS values during therapeutic hypothermia
  • Discuss the rationale for the type and timing of neuro-imaging for infants with HIE
  • Describe the implementation process for non-sedated MRI


CARING DURING COOLING

  • Discuss the risk for, and management of, at least one potential clinical complication encountered during the three phases of therapeutic hypothermia: inducation, maintenance and rewarming.
  • Recognize the clinical presentation of neonatal seizures and outline the traditional pharmacologic management
  • Describe one or more benefits of using a servo-controlled temperature regulatory device  
  • Discuss the pros and cons of: sedation, feeding, and infant holding during cooling
  • Discuss the role of OT, PT, and developmental specialists for infant with HIE - during cooling and beyond
  • List three strategies to improve communication with parents whose infants are undergoing cooling


FOLLOW UP & QUALITY

  • Describe at least one common feeding-related concern seen in infants with HIE
  • List at least three quality care metrics which could be measured for your hypothermia program
  • This course was inspired by a desire to help NICU's satisfy the new California recommendations for cooling centers in the State, but it has grown to so much more.
  • This course will focus on the major areas required by the California Children Services but also contain bonus content from extraordinary NICU experts from around the globe that we believe will serve your practice in a much more comprehensive way
