This workshop is designed to meet the continuing education requirements for the MN Board of Nursing.
It is the responsibility of the nurse to determine whether these activities meet the current criteria forcontinuing education.
DESCRIPTION: S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for Sugar, Temperature, Artificial Breathing, Blood Pressure,
Lab Work, and Emotional Support. All hospitals providing labor and delivery services need to
be prepared for when a newborn becomes sick and requires transport. Before arrival of the transport team, community hospital caregivers should anticipate, promptly recognize, and effectively correct problems as they arise. The goal of all transport teams is to move with a well-stabilized infant, which helps minimize the chance that adverse events occur that may contribute to morbidity or lead to mortality. This program is designed to help community hospital caregivers organize care during the pre-transport stabilization period.
There are numerous instructional materials and resources available for specific problem management, many of which will be included in the manual. This program is not intended to re-create instructional materials but to augment nursery education programs and serve as a straight forward and comprehensive guide for stabilizing a sick infant for transport.
