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.

Necrotizing Enterocolitis: Why Such an Enigma?

Necrotizing Enterocolitis: Why Such an Enigma? 

Sep 12, 2019 3:15pm ‐ Sep 12, 2019 4:15pm

The pathogenesis of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is multifactorial and treatment of NEC once the disease occurs, is extremely difficult. Therefore, prevention is the best treatment. The intestinal microbial environment along with developmental aspects of the GI tract are key in understanding the pathogenesis of NEC. Dr. Neu explores the latest research (enteroids, organoids, and others) used to evaluate mechanisms that fulfill criteria for causality. Once we understand the causes of the different forms of NEC, we will be best able to target preventative strategies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe why it is difficult to define the disease we call necrotizing enterocolitis.
  • Discuss some of the important pathophysiologic features of the most classic form of necrtozizing enterocolitis.
  • Summarize current approaches for prevention of necrotizing enterocolitis.
