Presenter: Nathan Allen, MD, FACEP, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Medical Ethics, Program Director, GME; Ethics Professionalism and Policy Program Section of Emergency Medicine, Dept. of Medicine Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, Baylor College of Medicine
Description: Healthcare technology is advancing at a breakneck pace; it seems like each day a new technology is created bringing with it the promise of improved health and increased care options. While innovations like Extracorporeal Membranous Oxygenation (ECMO), destination mechanical circulatory support devices, and 3D-Bioprinting bring potential hope to the public and medical community, they also raise a host of new ethical questions. Simultaneously, emerging infectious diseases such as the ongoing Ebola virus disease outbreak are changing the healthcare landscape in Texas and the United States and add a new dimension to existing ethical debates. During this session, participants will explore the ethical challenges brought about by new medical technologies and emerging infectious diseases using illustrative cases to examine the ethical questions that we can answer and those that we need to answer to cope with the pace of change in technology and infectious disease.

Description: Human milk is probably the least appreciated but the most beneficial source of nutrition for infants in the NICU. Many NICUs however have failed to provide the resources to ensure human milk be the primary source of nutrition for infants. Join us as we review the variety of benefits human milk use imparts upon those infants who receive it. The individual components that make up these benefits will be described. We will then outline the short and long term implications of human milk use on morbidity and mortality of our NICU patients.
