Track Categories

The track category is the heading under which your abstract will be reviewed and later published in the conference printed matters if accepted. During the submission process, you will be asked to select one track category for your abstract.

Neonatology is the branch of pediatric medicine concerned with the newborn, the diagnosis and treatment of neonates. The new-born infants who are suffering from low birth weight, congenital malformations (birth defects), intrauterine growth, sepsis, birth asphyxia and prematurity are treated in the NICUs. Neonatologist is trained specifically to handle the most complex and high-risk situations in born babies.

Newborn babies are the ones who are born before the 37th week of gestation are considered as premature. Premature babies and other very sick newborns face an increased risk of one or more complications, being born too early can cause short-term and long-term health problems for preemies. Generally, the earlier a baby is born, the higher the risk of complications. Birth weight plays an important role, too. The most common causes of neonatal deaths are preterm birth complications, newborn infections and birth asphyxia. Premature newborns require clinical care by a doctor.

Congenital anomalies (birth defects) can be defined as structural or functional anomalies  that occur during intrauterine life and can be identified prenatally, at birth or later in life. Congenital anomalies are also known as birth defects, congenital disorders or congenital malformations.
