Learning Objectives

After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the key differences between neonatal and adult hemostasis.
  • List the differential diagnosis for the bleeding neonate at less than 24 hours of age, 1 week of age, and greater than 2 weeks of age.
  • Discuss the diagnosis and treatment of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT).
  • Review the approach to using CMV-safe vs. leukocyte-reduced blood products in the neonatal population.
Program Description

This program will focus on special coagulation and transfusion needs of the neonate, an important aspect of patient blood management not to be overlooked. Neonatal coagulation is different than that of the adult, and thus requires special attention. The speaker will provide an overview of the major coagulation and bleeding complications that occur in the neonatal population and address common pitfalls. Recently-published clinical updates on the management of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) and the use of CMV-safe blood products will be reviewed.
