- Resource Collection on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs)
The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Library at Georgetown University has compiled a number of key resources on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs), which includes Web sites; fact sheets and brochures; screening, diagnosis, surveillance, intervention, and training tools; prevention-education materials (in both English and other languages), as well as other materials. It is available online at http://mchlibrary.info/guides/fasd.html
- The CDC has developed a Web-based featured item about fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. The item includes a video that shares the story of a family living with the effects of fetal alcohol exposure. Visit the feature and share the message about having a healthy, alcohol-free pregnancy with colleagues and friends.
The CDC also has unveiled a new, user-friendly, research-based Web site on FASDs. Among the features are state alcohol consumption data for 2008, a special video providing an inside look at one family living with FASDs, easy-to-read information on the diagnosis and treatment of children with FASDs, individualized pages for special groups (women, families, health care providers, educators and partners), and updated information on CDC activities. Visit the new FASD site.

- What to do about Erythromycin Opthalmic shortage for newborns.
- A process today stemming from a published article in JOGN back in 1984.
- We transitioned to unit dose sterile/aseptic technique repackaging of
our currently available 3.5 G tubes we have in stock to 210 mcg (0.2 mL)
unit dose sterile slip tip syringes.
- NOTE: The expiration date & time, it is limited to 2 days at room temperature in Pyxis.
- NOTE: A continuous ribbon of ointment from the inner corner of the eye out to the edge is approximately 0.1mL (~15 mm). Use one 0.2 mL
syringe to treat both eyes, dose is approximately 0.1mL per eye.
- Pharmacy will prepare sterile unit dose Erythromycin Ophthalmic Ointment in slip tip syringes as needed and will check Pyxis stock daily
to maintain a MIN/MAX level and monitor expiration dating.
- Once one runs out of the ointment, one can go to diluting the 5% povidine / iodine ophthalmic solution eye drops to 2.5%. We notified and obtained authorization/notice from our local San Francisco Dept of Health to do so. There was a study done in Africa reporting the success of this practice.
