Though survival rates are increasing, critically ill premature and term babies are often at risk for long-term developmental issues due to neurological damage from hypoxia, hemorrhages, brain malformations, genetic disorders, seizures and other injuries and disorders.
New treatment approaches, as well as technology, are helping providers prevent, diagnose and treat neurodevelopmental disorders in newborns and improve long term outcomes.
Steven Olsen, MD is here to discuss how the Neuro NICU program at Children’s Mercy brings neurology and neonatologists together in the Level IV NICU to offer the highest level of care to these newborns and improve neurological development.
