Often a consult on a complex neonatal or pediatric ostomy patient can challenge our practice. Using a case scenario approach, this session will outline creative strategies for successful management of difficult ostomies in the neonatal and pediatric population. A brief review of pathophysiology of congenital anomalies of the GI and GU systems will be presented. Pouching techniques as well as pharmacologic interventions to manage high output ostomies in patients with short intestinal length will be discussed. Inventive use and adaptation of products to meet the needs of our littlest patients will also be included.
At the completion of this session the learner will be able to outline creative interventions for managing challenging and problematic ostomies in the neonatal and pediatric patient.
