Infant Life-Saving Information: Neonatal Resuscitation Program
A neonatal resuscitation program can provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to assist in the delivery of babies.
This type of medical procedure isn’t performed during all births. In fact, resuscitation is only required on about 10 percent of births each year. While rare, it’s important for hospitals to employ staff who’ve successfully completed a neonatal resuscitation program. This program includes simple tasks, such as clearing a baby’s airways after birth. Other aspects of neonatal resuscitation include intubating newborns and applying CPR during cardiac arrest.
Because infants have smaller, more fragile bodies, CPR techniques performed on an adult can injure these little ones. For this reason, it’s vital that anyone who conducts cardiopulmonary resuscitation on an infant complete a neonatal resuscitation program.
