Event description

Description


The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program is the first neonatal education program to focus exclusively on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick newborns. S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the six assessment parameters taught in the course: Sugar and safe care, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support. This valuable, accessible and easy-to-remember resource serves as a concise guide for organizing the myriad of details and interventions necessary for stabilizing a sick infant. First introduced in the U.S. and Canada in May 1996, this program has rapidly grown in popularity, with over half- a million learner-participants to date in more than 25 countries worldwide! Translated into other languages, including Spanish, S.T.A.B.L.E. has expanded to more than 25 countries!

This program would aim to improve the basic skill set required for the neonatal stabilisation including the explanation of theory behind it. It is designed to provide enough practice on the important practical procedures such as endotracheal intubation, surfactant administration, needle thoracocentesis, intercostal chest drain, umbilical catheterisation, basic handling of bubble CPAP and Mechanical Ventilation. This course would also focus on the blood gas and basic x-ray interpretation strategies. There will be simulation -based case discussions on improtant neonatal stabilisation scenarios like Respiratory Distress Syndrome in premature baby, Hypoxic- Ischemic encephalopathy on term baby for cooling startegies, stabilisation of a baby born with Critical Congenital Heart Disease/PPHN and baby born with surgical condition etc. A specific communication technique with the NETS team will be also be discussed.
