Neonatal Point of Care Ultrasound

Multidisciplinary team with neonatologists, Trainees, and Data abstractors established in 2023. Our Bimonthly meetings include topics such as literature review, future research projects, collaboration with National Neonatal POCUS Collaborative and webinars.


POCUS has enormous potential in areas such as hemodynamic monitoring and procedural skills and has been incorporated into daily patient care by pediatric emergency medicine and pediatric critical care practitioners. The increasing use of POCUS by trained neonatal providers provides the opportunity to readily obtain answers to focused diagnostic questions and to perform procedures more safely and with higher success rates.


To leverage the expertise and resources of the CHNC and its member institutions to develop research and quality improvement projects focused on improving neonatal care using POCUS. Encourage collaborative educational opportunities with shared mental model and cloud based resources to create a uniform standard of care for all programs utilizing POCUS. Creation of algorithms and guidelines with other governing bodies such as the National Neonatal POCUS Collaborative (NPC) and POCUS in Pediatrics (PiP).


POCUS will improve the care of hospitalized neonates by facilitating the safety and success of procedures and allowing for rapid, accurate diagnostic assessment.
