Perspectives on the Care of Infants with the Trisomy 13 and 18 Syndromes
John Carey, MD, MPH
The care of newborns and young infants with the trisomy 13 and 18 syndromes remains laden with controversy. The conventional wisdom of the last 4 decades has been to hold off on technological interventions and surgery, especially cardiac surgery. This traditional approach is based on views of the quality of like in surviving children with the syndromes. Recent trends, including published data on survival and surgery and a changing worldview propelled by parents, has led to a shift in the paradigm of care in these conditions. The speaker will review the history and medical aspects of the 2 syndromes and delve into the current discourse.

Touch a Life, Impact a Lifetime: A Trauma-Informed Approach to the NICU
Mary Coughlin, MS, NNP, RNC-E
Sponsored by Abbott Nutrition
Infants make meaning out of the world based on how the world makes them feel, expressed through activation of the autonomic nervous system, limbic system and cerebellum. Investigators have shown that infants are highly attuned to the world and people around them. Adopting a trauma-informed paradigm invites the clinician to look beyond the infant’s clinical condition and see their biopsychosocial competencies as fellow human beings, with rudimentary intentions and emotions trying to make meaning out of their life in relation to the world around them.
