Conference Summary

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Chronic Lung Disease (CLD) Conference is organized by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and will be held on Mar 07, 2018 at Union League of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is physicians, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, nurses, respiratory therapists and other members of the healthcare team who provide care for patients with CLD/BPD and their families. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Conference Description :
Severe chronic lung disease (CLD) of infancy, also known as bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), is the most common chronic complication of premature birth. A diagnosis of BPD is strong predictor of long-term impairment in lung function, cardiovascular health, growth and neurodevelopment.

Management of infants with severe CLD/BPD presents a unique challenge due to its multi-system involvement and common association with multiple non-lung comorbidities. A coordinated, evidence based, multidisciplinary team approach is crucial to achieve the best outcomes for this high-risk population. Ideally, this strategy includes cohesive management between neonatal and pediatric care providers to facilitate high-level continuity of care during the transition to home and throughout the child’s life.

This course will explore the pathophysiology, current research and key aspects of the management of severe CLD/BPD including diagnostic and treatment options. This course will also discuss the long-term needs of infants with severe CLD/BPD, highlighting the chronic nature of this illness extending beyond infancy.

Conference Objectives are :
• Describe the current concept strategies in the management of infants with severe BPD/CLD
• Discuss the impact of pulmonary hypertension on the morbidity and mortality of the infant with BPD/CLD
• Describe the use of sedation management of neonates with severe BPD/CLD
• Explore transition to the home environment for infants requiring a tracheostomy and mechanical ventilation
• Explore potential promising new therapies in neonates with severe BPD/CLD
