Neonatal Pharmacology and Pharmacokinetics: A Non-Fatal Review

Sep 12, 2019 8:00am ‐ Sep 12, 2019 9:00am

Basic principles of neonatal pharmacology and pharmacokinetics are defined, simplified, and explained. The essentials of drug administration and drug elimination are outlined and these concepts are related to allow the clinician to begin to customize pharmacotherapy to the individual patient. Dr. Ohning’s goal is to make this ordinarily perplexing subject more simple, understandable, and useful.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define basic pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles.
  • Explain the basics of drug administration, drug action, and drug elimination.
  • Relate the concepts of phamacokinetics that allow customizing pharmacotherapy for an individual neonatal patient.

Multi- “omics” in the Newborn: Past, Present and Future

Sep 12, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Sep 12, 2019 3:00pm

Microbial colonization seems to appear early, very likely before an infant emerges from the uterus. Evidence supports that an early life microbiome that is part of a normal symbiotic maternal-fetal microbial ecosystem, when perturbed (“dysbiosis”) may result in pathology. Join Dr. Neu as he delves into the importance of evaluating the function of microbes in terms of other “-omics,” such as interactions with the human genome, metabolome, and epigenome. Our microbial environment can be manipulated, but we need to proceed with caution.

Learning Objectives:

  • Differentiate between the different "omic" research strategies.
  • Explain how individual and integrated "omic' strategies can help us better understand diseases such as necrotizing enterocolitis, sepsis, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
  • Elucidate why we want to combine these different strategies to better understand diseases in the neonate.
