Abstract:

This study aims to show a correlation between aerophagia in infants with tethered oral tissues (TOT’s) consisting of ankyloglossia and shortened maxillary labial frenula (tongue and lip-tie) and reflux. Currently there is little to no data on aerophagia as a possible cause of reflux in infants. Infants with tongue and possibly lip tie often have a poor latch in which there is often an inadequate seal around the breast and inefficient transfer of milk. As a result many of these infants swallow air during breastfeeding. Many of these infants suffer from symptoms of reflux. This study and results to demonstrate a correlation of ankyloglossia and shortened maxillary labial frenula with aerophagia and reflux.Treatment of these infants with a relatively simple frentomy procedure may reduce or eliminate reflux in this population.

Luke has been undertaken research involving the use of domperidone for 10-years. He is currently the lead investigator on a number of projects examining the use of domperidone to increase breast milk supply in clinical practice, predictors of treatment response to domperidone, and causes of low breast milk supply. He is also the lead investigator on a large clinical trial comparing the effects of different doses of domperidone in the treatment of lactation insufficiency. He has published widely on the topic of treatment for low breast milk supply, with many of these publications cited in clinical practice guidelines locally and internationally.

Abstract:Whether real or perceived, low breast milk supply remains one of the most commonly reported reasons for early breastfeeding cessation. While non-pharmacological support strategies remain the first-line approach for addressing concerns with low breast milk supply, we know that many women are recommended or turn to using galactagogues (substances thought to promote lactation). Domperidone is one of the most widely recognised and recommended pharmaceutical galactagogues across the world. This presentation will provide an evidence-based overview of the benefits and risks associated with using domperidone as a galactagogue and describe treatment recommendations relating to treatment initiation, dosing, duration of treatment, and treatment cessation. Evidence relating to the association between domperidone and sudden cardiac death and ventricular arrhythmias will also be discussed with a focus on its relevance to lactating women and consideration of risk management approaches that can be utilized in clinical practice to reduce risk of harm.

Bobby Ghaheri, MD is a board certified ear, nose and throat specialist with The Oregon Clinic in Portland, OR. His interest in treating children with tongue and lip-tie stems from his ardent support of breastfeeding and was furthered by his personal experiences, as his youngest child benefited from treatment for it. He enjoys working with children and has an interest in traditional and non-traditional approaches to pediatric pain control. To communicate with him, feel free to email him at [email protected] or follow him on Twitter at @DrGhaheri.

Abstract:

Numerous symptoms may arise which prevent mother-infant dyads from maintaining desired breastfeeding intervals. Investigations into treatments which positively influence breastfeeding outcomes allow for improved patient counseling for treatment decisions to optimize breastfeeding quality.

Surgical release of tongue/lip-tie results in significant improvement in breastfeeding outcomes. Improvements occur early (1-week postoperatively) and continue to improve through 1-month postoperatively. Improvements were demonstrated in both infants with classic anterior tongue-tie and less obvious posterior tongue-tie. This study identifies a previously under-recognized patient population that may benefit from surgical intervention if abnormal breastfeeding symptoms exist.

As a little girl, Melanie had the opportunity to watch her OBGYN dad deliver babies and it was such an incredible process to be a part of, she knew she wanted to help babies when she grew up. She received her bachelor’s degree in Family Science from Brigham Young University and worked in adoption until she had her first of six children, which included twins, all of which she was able to exclusively breastfeed. She struggled with postpartum depression which has helped her to be all the more compassionate towards the mothers she works with. Once all 6 children were in school, she became a certified postpartum doula and focused on guiding families mainly with multiples. Given her personal experience, she felt called to serve breastfeeding mothers, so she went back to school to become an IBCLC. She has a passion for helping breastfeeding dyads and also loves educating others about the importance of treating ties. She feels very blessed to have trained with some of the top in the tongue tie field and hopes to continue to spread the word to help increase breastfeeding success.

Abstract:

Improve your investigation skills as we walk through case studies of infants with tongue ties that were initially missed and the subsequent consequences. We will then review once the ties were found how a frenectomy with complete release improved or completely resolved their symptoms. We will examine studies that involve infants with Down syndrome, G tube, NG tubes, and failure to thrive. Learners will be empowered to assess with more accuracy by relying on their knowledge of symptoms and function in addition to standard anatomical assessments. This will improve outcomes for breastfeeding dyads allowing more tongue-ties to be found earlier on.

Abstract:

The development of a professional certification examination is a laborious and intensive process. Due to security issues, details regarding the development of specific examinations cannot be completely transparent. However, the general process for the development of certification examinations should be a public and transparent topic. While every certification examination is unique, the development process for most professional certification examinations following best practices is somewhat similar. If you have ever wanted to know about how professional certification examinations are developed, what the process involves or how professional certification examinations differ from other types of examinations, this is the session for you! Hear from the Chair and Executive Director of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBLCE) on this relevant topic.

Abstract:

This presentation will look at new research into lingual frenulum restriction and its surgical release to achieve improvement in problems with reflux, breastfeeding and pain for the breastfeeding mother. I will also expand this into restrictive tethered oral tissues (lip-tie, buccal-tie) as a whole, as this was part of my published study into the laser surgical release of restrictive tethered oral tissues on breastfeeding and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Learn more about the impact of surgical release (frenotomy) of tongue- tie, lip-tie, buccal-tie on both reflux and breastfeeding outcomes for the classically recognised anterior tongue-tie and the less obvious (without functional assessment) posterior tongue-tie. Posterior tongue-tie was noted in 71% of the study cohort.

Abstract:

Healthcare is undergoing waves of rapid change, from a local to global standpoint. Many IBCLC's are finding themselves in challenging work environments, or maybe without work at all. If the numbers present on social media groups such as Face book or Linked in are an indicator, more and more IBCLC's considering or starting their own private practice are growing each year. However, many don't have a business background, and aren't sure where to begin. In addition, it's very easy to spend a lot of money without planning properly; leading to a tremendous debt load before the business has a chance to stabilize. This session will cover the basics needed for starting and sustaining the PPLC.
