Whether it is hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia in a neonate, it signals a failure of the normal transition from fetal to postnatal patterns of glucose homeostasis, and both can lead to complications and are important risk factors for mortality and morbidity in the neonatal period. In this session, Julia Muzzy Williamson will provide a comprehensive overview of both conditions, their complex etiologies, and the most current guidelines for management. Learn how to work within the interdisciplinary team to treat these challenging conditions and improve outcomes for these little patients.
- Differentiate between the pathophysiology of neonatal hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia.
- Develop a management approach for neonatal hyper/hypoglycemia.
- Determine the complications of neonatal hyper/hypoglycemia.
- Integrate current interprofessional guidelines to improve outcomes for patients with neonatal hyper/hypoglycemia.
