Abstract

Purpose: Educate NICU staff and families on the implication of Eat, Sleep, Console (ESC) into nursing practice to manage neonatal abstinence syndrome in infants. Background: •Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is a combination of withdrawal symptoms that occurs in newborns following exposure to drugs, most commonly opioids, during pregnancy (Hein, 2021). •NAS often contributes to prematurity, difficulty with eating and sleeping, and presents with several neurologic, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal symptoms (Wachman, 2020). •The incidence of NAS has more than quadrupled in the past two decades, affecting eight in every 1,000 newborns (Wachman, 2020).
