Time: 6 pm 
Topic: Management of Neonatal Hypoglycaemia, and Does it Matter? 
Presenter: Professor Jane Harding,  Liggins Institute, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.

Presentation Overview: Low glucose levels in babies (neonatal hypoglycaemia) are common, and can cause brain injury, but the severity and duration of hypoglycaemia that causes injury is unknown.  Despite this, screening babies at risk and treating those with hypoglycaemia is generally recommended. We will review the pathophysiology of neonatal hypoglycaemia, and the evidence, or lack thereof, for best practice in diagnosis, prevention and treatment. 

Cost: Free for members; $20 for non-ACNN members.
