Sign Up for Webinar

Program Overview:

Prematurity continues to be a leading cause of neonatal mortality in the US. Preventing bronchopulmonary dysplasia in VLBW infants is critical to long term prognosis.  The series of certified episodes discusses the role of lung microbiomes, inflammation, nutrition, weight gain, and human milk as they relate to development and/or the prevention of BPD in VLBW infants.

Learning Objectives:

By participating in this unit, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the relationship between modifiable factors and risk for developing BPD
  • Explain the evidence for exclusive human milk (EHM) feeding in premature neonates and its role in complications of prematurity
