Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia: Early Detection and Proper Nursing Care is organized by Nurse.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held from Nov 28, 2016 - Nov 28, 2019. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Contact Hour.
Hyperbilirubinemia, a common disorder occurring in both term and preterm infants, is generally a benign, self-limiting process. However, if not properly diagnosed and treated, it can result in permanent neurologic damage. To prevent devastating consequences, nurses must understand differences between physiologic and nonphysiologic hyperbilirubinemia, as well as the risk factors, early diagnosis, and treatment of hyperbilirubinemia. This educational activity will explain those differences, and identify risk factors and treatments for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia.
Goal and Learning Outcomes:
The goal of this neonatal hyperbilirubinemia continuing education program is to provide nurses with information about the incidence, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia.
After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
• Discuss differences between physiologic and nonphysiologic hyperbilirubinemia
• Identify three risk factors for developing neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
• Describe two treatments for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
