Based on a mnemonic to optimize learning, retention, and recall of information Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional (S.T.A.B.L.E) is the six assessment and care modules and the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education program. S.T.A.B.L.E focus on the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. (S.T.A.B.L.E Program Modules, 2021)

S.T.A.B.L.E. kicks in when the A. B. C’s of NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Program) works!

UAMS Institute for Digital Health & Innovation (IDHI) is proud to offer S.T.A.B.L.E to the delivery facilities within Arkansas to promote standardization of care and improve outcomes for infants needing transport to a higher level of care.
