This PowerPoint® Slide show supplements the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program Learner course or can be used as a stand-alone self-study or instructor-led presentation for pediatric, obstetric, and family practice residents, neonatal and obstetric nurses, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare providers involved with neonatal patients.
Part 1: Highly visual and unique, the gestational age assessment component is based on the Ballard exam. Students will see how to apply different scoring categories by taking a close-up look at preterm through term infants.
Part 2: The physical exam component is a thorough look at the neonate from head to toe. Both normal and abnormal findings are presented. Numerous photos, illustrations, and videos make difficult concepts easy to understand for all levels of learners.
