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!
GET STARTED ON YOUR 2020 EDUCATIONAL PLAN & SAVE TIME AND MONEY!
You can get your entire team trained quickly by enrolling in this online course:
- Online Resources & Team Training

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
- Name 2 common side effects seen during therapeutic hypothermia
- Describe two nursing interventions unique to the infant undergoing therapeutic hypothermia
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
- Outline two strategies to improve communication with parents and families whose infants are undergoing cooling in your NICU
- Describe the existing evidence for offering minimal enteral feeding during therapeutic hypothermia
- List at least one potential pathway of neuro-protection related to offering feedings during cooling
- List two patient populations who might benefit from a MRI before discharge from the NICU
- Describe at least one way to improve your NICU's success with providing sedation-free MRI
- Outline two safety precautions and emergency preparations when taking an infant to off-unit MRI
- Name at least two tools to use to predict neuro-developmental outcome in infants with HIE
