Neonatal Arrhythmias: Interpretation & Treatment
Newborn arrhythmias are relatively common, occurring in up to 90% of neonates. Although many of those arrhythmias are benign, practitioners should be aware of the more common life-threatening rhythm and conduction disturbances that can affect neonates. This presentation will review the principles for identifying common benign and life threatening neonatal arrhythmias including premature atrial and ventricular contractions, atrioventricular block, congenital complete heart block, supraventricular tachycardias, and ventricular tachycardias and fibrillation. In addition, this presentation will examine common treatment modalities including medications, cardioversion and defibrillation. Finally, this presentation will correlate rhythm identification with treatment modalities in the neonatal population.

Module 1 - Obtaining a Complete Neonatal History
A complete neonatal history is vital to aiding the provider in the development of an accurate plan of care. It also serves as a tool to evaluate for real or potential issues or complications. In this module we will discuss the significance and timing of gathering a history, the primary features included in a neonatal history and will lay the foundations for the development of a differential diagnosis or initial impression.

Module 2 - Assessment of Gestational Age
An accurate estimation of gestational age is key in planning and providing care for the neonate. Understanding fetal growth patterns and the neonates gestational age help the provider identify and plan for those at risk. Gestational age can help determine morbidity and mortality and direct providers in advising families regarding plan of care. Finally, accurate gestational age determination guides research and application to clinical practice. In this module we define frequently used terminology when discussing gestational age, list the primary features and describe the process of determining gestational age.

Module 3 - Integumentary Assessment
The skin provides valuable information for the neonatal provider. Through palpation and inspection, a provider can determine the general health including nutrition, organ system function, and expression of systemic or cutaneous disease. The skin also provides important clues for determining gestational age. In this module we define frequently used integumentary terminology, explain integumentary anatomy and physiology, describe the process of a neonatal integumentary exam, and list common neonatal skin variations and lesions.

Module 4 - Neurological Assessment
The nervous system provides crucial data for the neonatal provider regarding physiologic function and developmental milestones. Alterations in the neonatal neurological exam can be a result of genetic, environmental, and maternal factors. In this module we explain neurological development & physiology, describe the process of a neonatal neurologic exam, and list common neonatal neurologic conditions.

Module 5 - Musculoskeletal Assessment
The musculoskeletal system is the framework for the neonate’s physical activity. Variations in this exam provide a foundation for future exams and can verify abnormalities such as spinal or extremity malformations. In this module we define frequently used musculoskeletal terminology, describe the process of a neonatal musculoskeletal exam, list common neonatal musculoskeletal conditions.

Module 6 - Assessment of the Head, Eyes, Ears, Nose and Throat (HEENT)
Evaluation of a neonate’s head, eyes, ears, nose, throat (HEENT) is essential for the provider to determine many potential issues such as birth trauma, poor fetal brain growth or development, as well as lend clues to possible airway anomalies or genetic syndromes. In this module we define frequently used HEENT terminology, explain HEENT anatomy and physiology, describe the process of a neonatal HEENT exam, and list common neonatal HEENT conditions.

Module 7 - Respiratory Assessment
Respiratory distress is the leading cause of resuscitation and stabilization in the neonatal population. A comprehensive and concise respiratory assessment in a neonate is a key factor in the accurate diagnosis and treatment of respiratory distress or failure. It guides the provider in the type of adjuncts needed to aid the neonate to resolve their respiratory issues. In this module we define frequently used respiratory terminology, explain respiratory anatomy and physiology, describe the process of a neonatal respiratory exam, and list common neonatal respiratory conditions.

Module 8 - Cardiovascular Assessment
The cardiovascular system provides valuable information for the neonatal provider. Through palpation and inspection, and auscultation a provider can determine not only the general health including hemodynamic stability but also the presence of any congenital or iatrogenic cardiovascular abnormalities. In this module we define frequently used cardiovascular terminology, explain cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, describe the process of a neonatal cardiovascular exam, and list common neonatal cardiovascular conditions.

Module 9 - Abdominal Assessment
The abdominal assessment provides crucial data for the neonatal provider regarding physiologic function, readiness to feed, as well as clues to major organ anomalies or genetic syndromes. Alterations in the neonatal abdominal exam can be a result of genetic, environmental, and maternal factors. In this module we define frequently used abdominal terminology, explain abdominal anatomy and physiology, describe the process of a neonatal abdominal exam, and list common neonatal abdominal conditions.

Module 10 - Genitourinary Assessment
The genitourinary system is composed of the kidneys, urinary tracts and reproductive organs all of which have similar anatomical structure and embryological development. Variations in this exam can lend clues to the provider of associations to anomalies in other organ systems. In this module we define frequently used genitourinary terminology, explain genitourinary anatomy and physiology, describe the process of a neonatal genitourinary exam, and list common neonatal genitourinary conditions.
