A1087 Stop Hospital Readmissions in Their Tracks: Best Approaches to Concerns at the Post-Discharge Newborn Visit

Saturday, November 3
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: W311AB, Orange County Convention Center

Topic(s): Breastfeeding

Faculty will present cases of common clinical conundrums pediatricians face at the first post-discharge visit. Evidence and best practices related to common causes of readmission will be discussed, including clinical guidelines for hyperbilirubinemia, with an emphasis on management of home phototherapy; feeding issues and dehydration in exclusively breastfed infants; and guidelines for sepsis evaluation in the setting of high and low temperatures in asymptomatic neonates. The needs of high-risk populations, such as late preterm and early term infants, also will be reviewed.
