In Part II of this special series about premature infants, experienced Neonatologist Dr. Scott Cameron and longtime Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Judy Philbrook help us navigate the NICU. They define terms and conditions professionals encounter when working with premature infants during and after care in the NICU. For example, premature infants encounter conditions such as Respiratory Distress Syndrome and the need for ventilators (conditions we’ve all come to understand during the COVID-19 health crisis). You’ll hear how the team deals with these conditions and other similar challenges.
