This 2017 conference feature sessions on cardiac pharmacology for neonates, the number 1 topic area requested from the 2016 evaluations. Learn from the experts how to maximize cardiac function in fragile newborns to promote stabilization, decreased morbidity and improved patient outcomes. Our content is evidence-based designed to provide information you can apply in your clinical setting. In addition, there are case studies and Q & A panels that allow you to hear different perspectives from attendees and ways on how to effectively manage them.
