The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program is one of the most widely distributed and implemented neonatal education programs focused exclusively on post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabilization care of sick infants. It was developed to meet the needs of health care providers who deliver stabilization care to infants. The program's acronym is a mnemonic referring to the six assessment and care modules, which are Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood Pressure, Lab work, and Emotional Support. The S.T.A.B.L.E. program is approved for both EMS and nursing continuing education credit. For more information, dates, directions and CE instructions, click on the title above
