This course is designed to be an introductory overview of the interpretation of laboratory values and vital sign measurements in the neonatal intensive care unit. The aim is to provide neonatal therapists with a framework for clinical decision-making so that they can recognize imbalances that may require modifications in the plan of care, or discussion with the nurse or neonatologist before further treatment.
