ICN3 Reminders and Calculators

 

GENERAL OBJECTIVES

 

The goal of the Intermediate Care Nursery curriculum is to provide residents with learning opportunities that will enable them to develop or refine knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to

 

  1. Show competency in obtaining and interpreting maternal history; performing the neonatal physical exam; interpretation of common screening and diagnostic tests performed in neonates; and performing common neonatal procedures.

  2. Understand the normal physiologic changes in the transition period and the first few weeks of life, identify signs of complications during this period, understand issues which alter normal progress in newborns, and demonstrate management of newborns with complications.

  3. Use medical evidence from resources such as literature, consultants, and peers to provide the best possible patient care.

  4. Effectively communicate with all members of the healthcare team.

  5. Develop a professional identity that emphasizes individual, practice and system improvement

  6. Advocate for patients within the larger medical system, emphasizing continuity of care.

 

OBJECTIVES BY ACGME COMPETENCY

 

PATIENT CARE

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is expected that the resident will come to the ICN 3 rotation having gained most of the patient care skills needed for normal term newborn care while on NBN rotation, including maternal and newborn history taking, familiarity with maternal and neonatal screening tests, examination skills for the term newborn, gestational age and weight assessment, ability to recognize and manage common term newborn signs and symptoms, and ability to perform common procedures, such as circumcision and bag-mask-ventilation, as outlined in UNM NBN Goals and Objectives. Residents not comfortable with any of these skills should notify the ICN 3 attending as soon as possible after arrival on the rotation.

 

GOAL 1: RESUSCITATION AND TRANSITION CARE

The resident will learn to assess late preterm infants for the type of resuscitation and/ or supportive care required during the transition to extra-uterine life and to provide that care in an effective, timely manner.

GOAL 2: CARE OF PATIENTS WITH COMMON SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS ENCOUNTERED IN ICN3

For the following conditions, the resident will learn to rapidly recognize signs or symptoms of disease onset, perform a pertinent history and physical, formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis, understand indications for admission to ICN 3 and transfer of care among other newborn units (NBN, NICU), and recognize indications for emergent intervention and stabilization. These conditions will often, but not always, be associated with late prematurity:

Respiratory distress

Apnea and bradycardia

EVALUATION METHOD: Oral patient presentations, written notes, and observation by attending.

 

GOAL 4: APPROPRIATE PHYSIOLOGIC MONITORING OF PATIENTS REQUIRING 1CN3 ADMISSION

The resident will learn appropriate use, interpretation, and response to the results of the following physiologic monitoring modalities as appropriate for the patient’s gestational age and condition:

Vital signs and NAS scores

For the following therapies, the resident will learn the physiology, appropriate utilization, and appropriate monitoring of the response to and the complications of each therapy:

Temperature maintenance and use of newborn warmers

Oxygen administration

Intravenous fluids, glucose, and electrolytes, including relevant calculations

Gavage feeds

Phototherapy

Antibiotics and antiviral therapies

PRIORITY: Essential.

LEVEL OF MASTERY: Proficiency.

TEACHING METHOD: Hands-on experience with support of experienced clinician, bedside teaching, didactic sessions, and independent reading.

EVALUATION METHOD: Observation by attending.

 

GOAL 6: MANAGEMENT AND DECISION MAKING

The resident will develop patient management skills for late preterm infants and infants with the conditions listed under Goal 2, as well as the ability to recognize the strengths and limits of their knowledge in this area.

PRIORITY: Essential.

LEVEL OF MASTERY: Working knowledge

TEACHING METHOD: Hands-on experience with support of experienced clinician, bedside teaching, and didactic sessions.

EVALUATION METHOD: Completeness and accuracy of oral and written patient presentations, observation by attending.

 

GOAL 7: FAMILY-CENTERED CARE, PATIENT SUPPORT, AND ADVOCACY

The resident will provide comprehensive, family centered, culturally appropriate care to patients, recognizing the particular stress placed on families by ICN3 admission and its associated diagnoses.

PRIORITY: Essential.

LEVEL OF MASTERY: Working knowledge.

TEACHING METHOD: Modeling by attending physician.

EVALUATION METHOD: Observation by attending.

EXPLANATION OF PRIORITIZATION TERMS:

Each goal has a level of priority associated to assist residents in allocating time and resources to learn different skills. The levels are defined as:

  1. Essential—All residents completing the rotation must achieve these goals.

  2. Important—Residents with a strong interest in this patient population will want to achieve these goals.

  3. Supportive— These goals will add to expertise, but achieving them may be limited by their infrequent occurrence or level of complexity.

For “essential” goals, level of mastery is further defined as:

  1. Proficiency—Residents will be able to independently recognize these conditions, determine a management plan, and implement the plan by the conclusion of the rotation.

  2. Working knowledge—Residents will be able to independently recognize or evaluate this condition, but may need assistance in formulating and carrying out a management plan.

Understanding—Residents will be familiar with the condition/procedure and should be able to discuss it with a consultant and describe it to family members, but will need assistance for full evaluation and implementation.
