WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS FREE WEBINAR:
Premature infants are at risk for developing Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) during their stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) as a result of: (1) immature retinal vasculature and (2) immature respiratory system, with the associated need for supplemental oxygen and mechanical ventilation.
At the end of this presentation, you will be able to describe at least one therapeutic intervention and its rationale for use (or rationale for discontinuation) related to the care of infants with ROP.
