Abstract:

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) provides support to neonates with cardiac and/or respiratory failure despite all other conventional management therapies. Neonates on ECMO are management on a variety of medication therapy including anticoagulation and antimicrobial therapy. Due to the nature of the ECMO circuit, pharmacokinetic properties of medications change which can make pharmacotherapy management challenging. Understanding these difference and changes will help maximize medication therapy in this vulnerable population.

Abstract:

This presentation will focus on the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic principles in neonatal populations and the implications for medication selection and monitoring. We will discuss parameters related to these principles and how pharmacotherapeutic regimens are determined using them. Absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of medications and the clinical impact of neonatal patient characteristics and medication properties on pharmacotherapeutic decisions will also be presented. We will also contrast medications and why medications may be preferred for some neonatal disease states due to medication characteristics. The information provided will act as a foundation for pharmacotherapeutic recommendations based on patient and mediation specific properties for neonatal disease states.

Abstract:

Caffeine is one of the most prescribed medications within the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This presentation will summarize the current understanding of caffeine therapy in neonates including the various indications. Caffeine is the medication of choice for apnea of prematurity (AOP) however it has been shown to be beneficial in several other disease states and conditions. Despite the widespread use of caffeine, there is not consensus on optimal dosing regimen or timing. We will review the supporting literature for the nuances of caffeine dosing regimens and schedules. While caffeine is generally considered a safe medication, we will also discuss potential side effects for monitoring. After this presentation, the audience will have a full picture of the pros and cons of this ubiquitous medication in our NICU population.
