ASPHO Live Webinar: Neonatal Thromboembolism: Management Challenges and Potential Solutions

Meeting Description:

Neonates account for the largest proportion of thromboembolic events seen in the pediatric population. These events often occur in sick term and preterm infants. Newborns are at increased risk of thrombotic complications due to unique characteristics of their hemostatic system and exposure to known triggers such as indwelling catheters. Moreover, the management of thrombosis in this patient population is more challenging compared with older age groups and requires careful consideration of the risks and benefits. 

Learning Objectives:

  • review important aspects of the neonatal hemostatic system and their impact on the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of neonatal thromboembolic events
  • discuss diagnosis and management of common neonatal thromboembolic events
  • review the role of pediatric multi-disciplinary anticoagulation consult services with focus on Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner-managed service model
