A weekly podcast series
A weekly podcast series
Our discussions on the utility of NIRS and monitoring regional oximetry in neonatology will feature conversations with Dr. Muzafar Gani Abdul Wahab, Dr. Yasser Elsayed, Dr. Jonathan Mintzer, Dr. Scott Duncan, Dr. Ronald Bronicki, and Terri Marin. These discussions will be centered around topics like the utility of NIRS monitoring, interpreting NIRS oximetry, addressing challenges associated with premature neonates, and more. The goal of this program is to get closer to the patient and delve into the challenges and impact of each technology in practice.
How does NIRS monitoring work and why should it be a part of monitoring protocols in the NICU? Two leading neonatologists, Dr. Muzafar Gani Abdul Wahab and Dr. Yasser Elsayed, discuss the matter in detail in this extended podcast episode.
How is NIRS used in a “routine” monitoring paradigm? Dr. Jonathan Mintzer, NICU/Well-Baby Nursery Medical Director at Mountainside Medical Center, explains the process.
Dr. Jonathan Mintzer discusses examples of both cerebral and non-cerebral uses of NIRS monitoring.
What are some therapeutic options with the NIRS monitor in the NICU? Dr. Scott Duncan walks through some of the available options.
How may NIRS influence care in the first few days of a neonate's life? Dr. Scott Duncan shares his first-hand expertise.
How do you interpret NIRS oximetry? Dr. Ronald Bronicki, Professor of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine, Section of Critical Care Medicine & Cardiology at Texas Children’s Hospital, shares his expertise.
NIRS monitoring is important, but what is the goal? We discuss the "why" behind NIRS monitoring with Dr. Jonathan Mintzer.
How can NIRS be valuable in managing hypotension in neonates?
How can NIRS be valuable in assessing resuscitation in neonates? Dr. Scott Duncan shares his experience.
How does the INVOS™ monitor work? Terri Marin, PhD, NNP-BC, FAANP at Augusta University, dives into the subject. Regional oximetry is an adjunctive technology that should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or clinical decision-making.
Terri Marin shares how the INVOS™ monitor can be used in real-time assessments during our final segment in this series. Regional oximetry is an adjunctive technology that should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or clinical decision-making.
