Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Care of the premature infant after an intensive care experience offers the pediatric nurse practitioner a myriad of challenges, depending on the infant's neonatal course. The focus of this series of articles is an overview of the common pathophysiologic, psychologic, and developmental problems that face the premature infant. This article provides a discussion of the pathophysiology, data collection, treatment modalities, complications, and education necessary to assist parents in coping and dealing with respiratory complications of prematurity.
