554 Necrotizing Enterocolitis Risks Crystal Crawford

While any illness in a premature baby must be taken very seriously, Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) demands special and rapid attention. Crystal Crawford, a highly experienced nurse, LNC, and expert witness, shares her experience in neonatal intensive care, particularly her deep knowledge of care for premature babies.

NEC, a gastrointestinal disorder often associated with blood transfusions and donor milk, has symptoms that can be confused with other illnesses that premature babies acquire. For this reason, any sign of distress must be monitored closely.

Crystal emphasizes that the nurse and doctor don’t have days and days to observe the symptoms, which rapidly intensify.

For the same reason, she strongly advocates persistence in getting help for an infant in distress. Neonate nurses face the same challenges of all nurses in getting doctors to listen to them. She urges that a nurse go up the chain of command until a positive response is achieved.

Crystal provides valuable and detailed information to indicate what an LNC should look for in medical history: testing, speed of response, and other vital factors. You will find this podcast to be an essential addition to your collection.
