Preparing Caregivers for Pre-Transport Stabilization of Newborns

If you're involved in providing care during the transitional period between resuscitation and transport, Nebraska Medicine can help you provide comprehensive support to both the newborn and their family.

Our STABLE (Sugar and safe care, Temperature, Artificial breathing, Blood pressure, Lab work and Emotional support) Transport Education Program is an effective tool for helping health care providers prepare.

STABLE Transport Education Program

S.T.A.B.L.E. stands for Sugar, Temperature, Artificial breathing, Blood pressure , Lab work, and Emotional support. This training will help ensure full support of the infant as well as their family prior to transport. The STABLE program is designed for the period following successful resuscitation of the newborn until care is transferred to the transport team. The program involves a seven (7) hour interactive didactic presentation by experts in neonatal nursing and medicine.

This transport program is encouraged for any health caregiver involved with pre-transport stabilization of the neonate, including:

  • RN's in newborn nursery, L/D, postpartum
  • RN's, PA's and Nurse Practitioners working in emergency rooms who are involved in the treatment of sick neonates
  • LPN's and nurse's aides working in the nursery and postpartum
  • Respiratory therapists, pediatricians, ER and Family Practice Physicians
  • Any community hospital physician involved in the stabilization of the neonate prior to transport

Research has shown that incorporating a mnemonic device into the learning process may help organize , recall and remember learned material.
