CARDIAC STABLE The S.T.A.B.L.E. - Cardiac Module provides general guidelines for the assessment and stabilization of neonates with suspected, severe forms of congenital heart disease (CHD). Prompt, effective, and appropriate care of neonates with severe CHD can reduce secondary organ damage, improve short and long-term outcomes, and reduce morbidity and mortality. This information is presented in a highly visual format using an animated PowerPoint® slide presentation, and is divided into three main sections: Part 1: Physical exam of neonates with suspected CHD and the differential diagnosis Part 2: Review of the anatomic features, clinical presentation and initial stabilization of neonates with CHD, and emphasizes differentiation of cardiac from pulmonary disease. Specific heart lesions are covered in detail. Part 3: Modifications to the six S.T.A.B.L.E. assessment components that are necessary when caring for neonates with suspected CHD.

Communicating with colleagues
Advanced principles of maternal-fetal physiology
CLASS OBJECTIVES: 1) Describe physiological principles and fetal oxygen transfer and acid-base balance. 2) Identify physiologic principles underlying fetal heart monitoring. 3) Describe concepts in antenatal testing including analysis and interpretation of biophysical profiles and complex antenatal fetal heart monitoring tracings. 4) Relate physiologic principals to the goals and intervention of antenatal testing. 5) Evaluate interventions for patients undergoing antenatal testing. 6) Analyze fetal cardiac arrhythmia patterns and describe outcomes associated with these patterns. 7) Analyze complex fetal heart monitoring patterns utilizing current NICHD/ACOG FHM terminology and categories. 8) Apply perinatal risk management principals, communication techniques and documentation strategies related to complex and challenging patient care scenarios.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: This course is designed for clinicians who previously completed the AWHONN Intermediate Fetal Monitoring Course, a comparable fetal monitoring educational program and/or who hold certification or added credentials in fetal heart monitoring.
