When caring for neonates, relying on your assessment and the whole clinical picture is crucial. Neonates can decline quickly with potentially only subtle indicators before becoming unstable. Neonatal hypoglycemia can result in seizures, heart failure, and brain damage when left untreated (5). Awareness of hypoglycemic identifiers including potential risk factors, signs and symptoms, or trends from baseline will help assist you to prompt recognition.
