Neonatal abstinence syndrome: a current update

Rohit Kumar, Shalabh Garg

There is an absence of consensus with regard to the monitoring and assessment of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) symptoms and severity, and commencement of pharmacological treatment. As a result different treatment practices have evolved locally, nationally and internationally. The main goals of NAS therapy are to promote infant and maternal regulation and to minimise the signs of NAS expression in the infant by optimising the environment and using pharmacotherapy only when necessary. This article reviews current NAS understanding including antenatal approaches, community-based programmes, follow-up, knowledge gaps and potential future research ideas.
