For our 51st podcast episode, I discussed a contensious topic in the neonatal world, Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER) and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Although it is a common occurrence amongst all infants, the lack of updated, clear, and consistent diagnostic and management recommendations remains, especially for the NICU population.

Due to my personal and professional experiences, it is difficult for me to have one solid stance on the topic. As a former NICU nurse, I saw so many infants experience reflux. As a NICU parent, my son William, struggled with reflux once we brought him home and yes, at that time, it was managed with medication. And finally, now as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner, I am more knowledgeable about what the evidence does and does not show regarding reflux and I understand its complexity. So I can fully appreciate how nurses advocate for their patients. I also completely acknowledge the internal battle parents endure as they helplessly watch their baby grapple with reflux and its associated symptoms, and I also embrace what the research has shown and why providers do not hastily start infants on reflux medications.

Tune in now to learn the difference between Gastroesophageal Reflux and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, some common symptoms, and how it is typically diagnosed. Be amazed as I debunk some of the common myths and conditions that are thought to be associated with GERD. Additionally, listeners will also walk away with a better understanding of the most up-to-date recommendations for the management of GER and GERD including non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatments. So sit back and get ready to be empowered as we discuss Gastroesophageal Reflux.
