Evidence to Practice: Management of Oxygen in Preterm Infants

VON Grand Rounds, a free webinar and discussion series.

12:00-1:00 p.m. (ET) Wednesday, May 15, 2024

Oxygen therapy is critical to the survival of sick preterm newborns. Although lifesaving, oxygen therapy can contribute to serious problems, including retinopathy of prematurity and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Our attempts to find the “right” amount of oxygen to administer in the delivery room and while in intensive care are imperfect and leave us with many unanswered questions.

We will examine evidence based practices that maximize the benefits of oxygen administration while minimizing potential harms in a variety of care environments, including low-resourced settings.

Optimize Improvement at Your Center with QI Foundations

Our new online Quality Improvement Foundations (3.5 CME/CNE) course provides a guide to plan, prepare, and run repeated tests of change to optimize your improvement project.

The course is designed to build a shared understanding of effective QI for all health care professionals and parent partners involved in newborn care.

Center-wide Education Subscriptions available for $1,500 (or $500 for Level 2 NICUs). 

Vermont Oxford Network Institute for Evidence-Based Practice

The VON Institute for Evidence-Based Practice, which includes the VON Grand Rounds webinar series and Cochrane at VON, is dedicated to helping teams apply evidence in the care of infants and families by integrating proven effective practices into care provided in a local context. The Institute for Evidence-Based Practice also informs application of evidence in VON quality improvement programs, which are currently focused on neuroprotective care.
