Description

In this chapter of the Rwandan National Neonatal Protocol, Dr. Christian Umuhoza discusses neonatal resuscitation practices. Participants will be able to prepare for delivery, identify prenatal conditions that increase the risk of needing resuscitation at the delivery, identify the equipment and the personnel needed at each delivery in preparation for neonatal resuscitation, and also they'll be able to explain the four increasing levels of neonatal resuscitation and how to assess the need to move to a higher level of intervention. They'll also be able to demonstrate effective bag mask ventilation in the newborn. 

 

After viewing, participants will be able to:

-Identify perinatal conditions that increase risk of needing resuscitation at delivery

-Identify the equipment and personnel needed at each delivery in preparation for neonatal resuscitation

-Explain the four increasing levels of neonatal resuscitation

-Demonstrate effective bag mask ventilation for newborns
