Residents rotating through the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit work closely
with Neonatologists, nursing staff, respiratory therapists, and
social services. Residents respond to high-risk deliveries, perform procedures and
manage the daily care of their patients. Residents rotate for
a total of three months during their residency.
During the course of the Intensive Care Nursery months, the Resident learns to manage the very low birth weight infant, respiratory distress syndrome and bronchopulmonary dysplasia, sepsis in the neonate, congenital heart disease, and a variety of other conditions affecting neonates. The resident is an integral part of a team caring for premature and acutely ill neonates.
