1/2. Case study of a high-risk neonate failing to thrive post-extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and post-necrotizing enterocolitis.

    Infants discharged from neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) often face a long journey of chronic illness, family stresses, and financial burdens. health care professionals involved in acute care need to be aware of the far-reaching repercussions of neonatal illness. This report presents a case study of a low-income, single mother from a rural community and her son, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) graduate post-extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and post-necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) discharged with a gastronomy tube (g-tube) and failure to thrive (FTT), from his birth to 10 months of age. family-focused interventions aimed at improving growth and developmental delays and providing family support will be discussed.

2/2. Substance abuse in adolescent mothers: strategies for diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

    Adolescent drug addiction and alcohol abuse are on the rise in this country. Teenagers of all races, socioeconomic groups and both genders have become avid experimenters with a full spectrum of substances, including alcohol, marijuana, stimulants, cocaine and hallucinogens. A diagnosis of addiction requires familiarity with the normative trends of adolescent behavior, as well as deviations from these trends. Moreover, an adolescent mother with a drug addiction problem confronts the additional burden of fostering adaptive developmental patterns in her infant. Treatment techniques such as previewing, which empowers through the representation and enactment of future outcomes, have helped addicted teenage mothers relinquish drug use and adopt more mature caregiving behaviors.
