Team DFTB. Neonatal procedures: Elizabeth Osmond at DFTB19, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2020. Available at:
Neonatal procedures can be broken down into two broad categories. There are those that are needed to stabilize the child in front of you (such as vascular access or intubation) and there are those with a more diagnostic intent (such as a lumbar puncture or SPA). Newborns are unpredictable so Beth Osmond asks us to consider those things that we do have control over – yourself, the team and your environment and equipment.
This talk was recorded live at DFTB19 in London, England. With the theme of “The Journey” we wanted to consider the journeys our patients and their families go on, both metaphorical and literal.
