Sweet and Sour: Hypoglycemia in the Newborn
Hypoglycemia is one of the most common problems encountered by the practitioner in newborn care. How low is too low and how does the age of the patient influence these thresholds? Moreover, when a patient’s blood glucose is found to be low, what are the best steps to take in order to normalize it? This is not your usual talk on hypoglycemia but rather one that looks at the journey one center took in its quest to answer these questions. On this path we encountered some results that were definitely “sweet” and others that left a “sour” taste in our mouths. In this talk you will be follow the story of our center which produced a cautionary tale that demonstrates that you shouldn’t always believe everything you read!
