Overview

Includes interactive multimedia DVD! The new, extensively updated Neonatal Resuscitation Program materials represent a shift in approach to the education process, eliminating the slide and lecture format and emphasizing a hands-on, interactive, simulation-based learning environment. The new 6th edition textbook and accompanying DVD will reflect the 2010 American Academy of Pediatrics and American Heart Association Guidelines for Neonatal Resuscitation. Content updates include:
• Changes in the NRP Algorithm
• Elimination of Evaluation of Amniotic Fluid in Initial Rapid Assessment
• Use of Supplemental Oxygen During Neonatal Resuscitation
• Use of Pulse Oximetry All NRP courses will be required to use the 6th edition materials beginning January 1, 2012.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cea Tillis, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a teaching manual for a national training program in neonatal resuscitation developed and administered by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to teach standard practice for providing standard techniques necessary to render effective resuscitation for newborns in the delivery room and in other hospital settings where neonates are cared for.
Audience: The book is written for any healthcare provider who might care for a newborn at the time of delivery (i.e. pediatricians, obstetricians, neonatal nurse practitioners). Many hospitals require that the course associated with this book be taken as part of the credentialing process to attend deliveries or care for newborns in that facility.
Features: It covers normal newborn physiology resuscitation techniques, procedures (e.g. intubation, chest compressions), and ethical issues. It uses many algorithms for resuscitation, diagrams, pictures, and comes with a multimedia DVD-ROM that includes superb presentations of procedures, cases, and other assets.
Assessment: This edition provides information on neonatal resuscitation based on the recommendations of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, an international, evidence-based review of the scientific literature on this topic. This book also is the basis for many chapters on neonatal resuscitation which appear in standard neonatal textbooks.
