Contemporary Neonatal Issues: Examination of the Mouth and the Identification of Tongue Tie
Contemporary Neonatal Issues: Examination of the Mouth and the Identification of Tongue Tie is a course built in response to needs by the NHS trust and clinical practitioners. Frenulotomy, the surgical treatment for tongue tie, seems to be a very misunderstood treatment, and the incidence of tongue tie being diagnosed is increasing dramatically.
This tongue tie training course offers everything from a review of the anatomy and physiology of the mouth of the newborn, to a critical analysis of the benefits and potential complications of frenulotomy. It is a vital course for midwives, health visitors, GPs and others who come into contact with babies in a healthcare setting.
