Neonatal Resuscitation Program offered by Creativesol-ve Edu. Co. (Los Angeles) is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation. Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation. Each hospital is responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for neonatal resuscitation.

Latest and Greatest: Overview 2015 American Heart Association Emergency Cardiovascular Care Updates
In-depth understanding of neonatal resuscitation practices should be obtained by every health care provider. An estimated 10% of newborns need to be assisted in order to start breathing upon
delivery while approximately less than 1% require extensive resuscitation. While majority of neonates are able to make the transition from intrauterine to extrauterine life, the increasing number of births worldwide means that there is always a possibility that many infants would require some assistance to achieve cardiorespiratory stability. Healthcare providers should bear in mind that neonates require highly specific needs that could be poles apart to those of adult patients.
The 2015 American Heart Association Emergency Cardiovascular Care Updates for Neonatal Resuscitation guidelines are applicable to neonates in transition from intrauterine to extrauterine life as well as neonates who have completed newborn transition but require resuscitation during the first weeks after birth.
The 2010 neonatal resuscitation algorithm of the American Heart Association begins in evaluating if there is a need for resuscitation by checking on three parameters namely- age of gestation (term or preterm), whether the newborn crying or breathing, and if the new born has good muscle tone. The 2015 algorithm on the other hand begins with antenatal counseling, team briefing and equipment check. The new guidelines recognize that successful neonatal resuscitation may be realized through preparedness, thus perinatal evaluation must be done. By carrying out a perinatal risk evaluation, possible outcomes are foreseen, thus healthcare providers can launch a team of personnel and at the same time prepare the necessary equipment and supplies prior to the delivery.
In both 2010 and 2015 algorithms, if the neonate is term, with good cry, breathing, and muscle tone, the neonate stays with the mother, undergoes routine newborn care, kept warm and dry with cleared airway, and is continuously monitored. Otherwise, the neonate is stimulated in addition to the steps mentioned. (Read More…)
