Recommendation – quality of resuscitation

 

Recommendation

Neonatal resuscitation must follow the latest agreed national guidelines. Currently these are based on the 2015 ILCOR recommendations.[i],[ii]

 

Any member of staff who could be involved in neonatal resuscitation needs regular newborn resuscitation training and should be familiar with all local equipment.

 

Examples of newborn life support training include the Newborn Life Support (NLS)[iii] course or equivalent; alternatively, skills would be developed as part of wider training such as PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training (PROMPT).[iv]
