The scariest group of patients in pediatrics are the neonates. Transition to the outside world, the family's adaptation to a new addition, and the inability of the baby to articulate all add up to making this a challenging group of patients, even for experienced clinicians. Early recognition and timely management of critical issues can improve outcomes for our smallest patients.
Part 1 will cover common problems that occur in neonates, including fever, hypothermia, cyanosis, stridor, hypoglycemia, and inborn errors of metabolism. Our expert will review diagnostic approaches and current management strategies to address these issues.

CMS CoP background
|- Urinary tract infection||- Cyanosis||- Hypoglycemia|
|- Stridor||- Inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs)||- Ductal-dependent cardiac lesions|
