Abstract: Apert Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that presents with craniosynostosis, syndactyly and midface retrusion with dysostosis as well as many other anomalies. Apert Syndrome is an autosomal dominant syndrome that presents equally in males and females and has an occurrence rate of 1 in every 65,000. The incidence of this syndrome increases with the paternal age and is thought to be de novo in recurrence. Apert syndrome is a mutation on the FGFR 2 gene located on chromosome 10q25-26.

Abstract: Neonatal sepsis is a condition defined as a clinical syndrome characterized by signs and symptoms of infection in an infant 28 days of life or younger. In Ethiopia, regardless of the marked reduction in neonatal mortality neonatal sepsis still accounts for more than one-third (33%) of neonatal deaths in the country. Thus, identification of the magnitude and associated factors of neonatal sepsis has vital role in preventing and minimizing the related burden of neonatal illness and death.

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore the diagnosis known as Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) and an intervention called body cooling or therapeutic hypothermia. This literature review will relate the diagnosis to the clinical setting and investigate the implications for the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP). This research paper will define the diagnosis and discuss the incidence, etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, management
