Public Health Grand Rounds Today: “Primary Prevention and Public Health Strategies to Prevent Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome”
Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) occurs when newborn babies experience withdrawal after being exposed to drugs in the womb. NAS can cause low birth weight and other complications leading to prolonged hospitalization. NAS is preventable if an expectant mother receives proper care and treatment.
