Caregiver Education to Advance the Development of Feeding Skill in Fragile Infants

This poster, presented at NANT 8 - 2018 by Dr. Gilson Capilouto, demonstrate the benefits of combining real time objective feedback  (with capability for review) and expert guidance (Feeding Specialist) on caregiver training.

Result: Visual feedback helped caregivers recognize infant communication cues and verbalize the supports needed to reestablish stability and promote feeding skill development.

Machine Learning Techniques Indicate Relative Risk For Underlying Post Discharge Feeding Issues

A poster presentation presented  at the 2017 annual Hot Topics in Neonatology Conference in Washington, D.C., held December 11-13, 2017.  These findings suggest that otherwise healthy preterm infants may have underlying feeding issues at discharge that go undetected using traditional NICU assessment focused mainly on age and weight.

Quantifying Neonatal Sucking Performance: Promise of New Methods

A study published in Thieme’s Seminars in Speech and Language indicates that an infant’s ability to feed, or sucking performance, may correlate with neurodevelopmental outcomes.  This highlights the need to include neonatal sucking assessment as part of routine clinical care in order to capture the relative risk of adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes at discharge.

Exploring the Link Between Neonatal Brain Injury and Sucking

A whitepaper outling the clinical partnership with NFANT Labs and researchers at Harvard Medical School & Boston Children’s Hospital to investigate neonatal sucking patterns as an indicator of neurodevelopment.  This research program will provide clear evidence of the association between early abnormalities in feeding performance and underlying brain injury.
