Reflux in the NICU

Reflux is a common issue in the NICU and with many of our pediatric patients. The evidence-base for effective interventions is rapidly emerging but is difficult for each of us to stay on top of! This paper by an NICU nurse published in 2012 is a fabulous resource. It does not just provide strategies but looks at the current evidence base as of its publication, and explains so well the “whys” behind the interventions. It is so easy to join a bandwagon and support the latest idea, but having the rationale and the data to titrate the interventions based on the unique issues and co- morbidities of a specific population, such as the NICU, is essential. I hope you enjoy this article on GER/EER as much as I have.
