Student handbook for either self-study of the S.T.A.B.L.E. Learner Course on DVD (DVD sold separately), or for instructor-led presentations.

Comprehensively reviewed by highly regarded neonatologists, nurses, and respiratory therapists, the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program is considered by neonatal educators to be the follow-up, complementary program to resuscitation education.

S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for the 6 assessment parameters covered in the program: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support for the family. A seventh module, Quality Improvement, stresses the importance of professional responsibility of improving and evaluating care provided to sick infants. Neonatal assessment and stabilization guidelines are offered in each module. Prevention of adverse events and delivery of safe patient care are stressed throughout the program.
